    I'm looking for experiences and opinions about Tri-X and HP5. Have you tried both? Which do you like and why?

    I haven't used tri-x since college but I did pick up a roll this summer and it's waiting for me in the fridge. I will report back once I get around to it... I have been using HP5 and I am really liking it.

    Yes, I realize this post is no help.

    allow me to add to orie's useless posting. ;)


    hp5.


    can't seem to focus atm, but here's some stuff:

    hp5 pushes much better than tri-x. i can get 'er up to 3200 and develop normally at double dilution. got tonal range. yessirree.

    i find the overall tonal range to be better than tri-x. the heel and toe are much more in line as well.

    i've given many films a go, but have decided on hp5 and i've been bulk loading it for years.

    i'll type more once i get to concentrating.
