Paul I rattled off some emulsions and developing techniques that I like but for whatever reason I didn't see the part of your post about Delta 100/D76. I have not used Delta 100 recently and I can't even remember the last time I used D76. So I can't make any comparisons between them and anything else. Just wanted to state that in the interest of full disclosure.

I don't know for sure but I expect there are still some color negative films with 3Ds and T-grains. "
O.k., so now we know the source of the confusion: I thought the cross section picture in his book is the current T-Max 400 (TMY-2), but it is indeed the former TMY. Very good to know.
That explains the finer grain and higher resolution of TMY-2 compared to TMY, as well.
Thank you and Robert,
and best regards,
To repeat some previous comments made in the color forum, I believe that you will find that Kodak Ektar 100, and the Vision family of Motion Picture films use a combined t-grain and 3D (cubic) emulsion. This was announced by Kodak at the introduction of these products.
You will find this information at: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/profe...4046/e4046.pdf
I recently developped 6 rolls of Rollei Pan 25 (version 2) which is supposedly the same film as Efke 25. It is pretty fine grain but not as smooth as Agfa 25... I'm pretty happy with it except that as someone already mentionned quality control is pretty poor. In the 3 rolls I've already come across 4 emulsion defects that would have been a major problem if I had been printing in a wet darkroom, thankfully I can 'fix' it after scanning. So while a really nice film, make sure to take several shots just in case...

That's interesting, I"ll have to give stand development a try. How does Acros 100 compare to TMAX 100 ?
