If you hate grain stick with T-grain films, Delta, Acros, T-Max, etc.

Data sheets show FP4+ also has a big shoulder, while most other films are straight lined after the toe (according to the sheets).

In 8x10, you're not going to notice it that much anyway. So FP4+, or even Shanghai GP3 is going to be fine.

If cost and grain are both issues, why not go back down to 4x5 T-grain films?
