    It's also twice as hard on your fixer.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    But there's LESS fixer in t-grain emulsion, this seems so strange...

    There's more iodine in t-grain emulson, it's hard on fixer.

    This is why I always use pieces of T-Max film (TMY-2) to do all my clip tests for clearing time.

    I had a theory that any dust particles that might have found their way into processing solutions would tend to stick less to the emulsion if there was sufficient agitation, particularly during the beginning of fixing when the emulsion was still a bit soft. I don't know if it's true, but I have been very free of dust stuck to my negatives.
