    I have always shot 100 iso B&W with medium format. I am going to be shooting a model and enlarging to 11x14 from 120 neg, i am doubting the light and was maybe ganna shoot 400iso but I dont want to get grainy prints. My question is to anyone who has shot med. format 400 iso, what is the grain factor when printing 11x14?

    I think you'll be happy with the results. I like Kodak's T-Max films, and get good results printing up to 20x24.

    It won't be very grainy. It'll look significantly less grainy than an ISO 400 35mm neg enlarged to 8x12. I regularly enlarge to 16x20 from ISO 400 medium format with excellent results.
