    Tmax 400 (TMY) in XTOL works for me. According to the published figures by Kodak, it is as fine grained as Plus-X which is considerably slower. Wonderful stuff. Works perfectly well in D76 too. See the links to Kodak's datasheets below and search for "RMS granularity".

    If grain is what counts for you, the T-grain films (Kodak TMax 400 and Ilford Delta 400) are the best bet. Ilford XP-2 Super also falls into this group, but it is a chromogenic black and white film (and very good).

    tmy(400) is about as fine grained as you can get.
    it doesn't block up if you use artificial light too.
    i like it because it can be processed in something like Xtol
    and be very fine grained, or you can go wild and process it in
    something like coffee and get really pronounced grain.
    it is a very versatile film.

    Another vote for Tmy and xtol. Fantastic combo. My limited experience is that you can squeeze slightly finer grain and sharpness with dilute xtol/rodinal stand development. (1:5+1:200 for 75mins at 20c and season to taste.)Even xtol diluted 1:1 is great, you just need to make sure you mix with distilled water and keep the air out of storage bottles so the mix is fresh.

    And speaking of plus-x, you can always rate that at 400 and soup it in diafine with good results.

    Very nice and smooth is Delta 400 in 510 Pyro.... e.g. woman/girl portraits...great even for possible retro look.

    If you leave out spectral sensitivity and just look at grain and sharpness then TMY2 in undiluted D-76 should be about as close as you will get. I use Fuji Microfine for ACROS and the grain is extremely fine.

    Delta 400 or TMY2 with Xtol 1+1 will give a fine grained modern look.

    In my experience it's been TMAX 400 in TMAX developer. Smooth as silk.
    Those who know, shoot film
