    I personally dislike tabular grain technology, as laying tabular (unnatural grain shape in the first place) grain in one general direction is not natural and recording light on them even less so. Tri-X however is a real film. An organic of the film world to coin a phrase.

    and don't forget, T-max has changed formulations as well, most recently TMY, but I recall there being somewhat of an unannounced or un-noticed change in the early mid-90's to TMY.

    Nice one Thomas, my guess is the guy in the chair is Tri-X and the others are T-Max, but who can tell?

    From a highly compressed low resolution jpeg?

    The difference between the two isn't day and night, but it's there and noticeable at higher resolutions.
    That said it's not a matter of one being better than the other. It's a matter of personal taste.

    Well said Harry.

    Ok, my guess Thomas.......the two in the middle are traditional grain and the 1st and 4th are tabular grain, but I don't really know.

    Yeah. If these are from 35mm, print them to 11x14 and it won't be too hard to tell by looking at the prints. At this size online, no way.

    My guess also.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    What defines "natural" in film manufacturing? Strange word to use.
