    The brownish tint is an indication of fine grain. I think it is like the refractive effect of a line grating.

    I really like TRI X but I have a hard time imagining that it could be finer grain than TMAX because of the shape of the grains and the structure of each film. I find TMAX to be very contrasty and not as compression or expansion friendly as I would prefer, other than that it is very fine grain. Did Kodak make this claim?

    Frank,
    no it was written in the aforementioned Photo Techniques article, written by two former film development people at Kodak. They also claim that Tri-x roll film, over time, has become more straight line than it was. They tested only roll film. TXP was not tested.
