I don't know for sure but I expect there are still some color negative films with 3Ds and T-grains. "
O.k., so now we know the source of the confusion: I thought the cross section picture in his book is the current T-Max 400 (TMY-2), but it is indeed the former TMY. Very good to know.
That explains the finer grain and higher resolution of TMY-2 compared to TMY, as well.
Thank you and Robert,
and best regards,
