I actually love T-grain films, for certain applications. I mostly shoot traditional film, Foma and Ilford these days, but they don't perform as well as Acros for some situations, or even as well as TMX or TMY. I love Ilford Delta films in 135 for creamy smooth 8x10 prints. My only complaint, the longer than hell fix times to clear the purple haze. I believe the longer film stays wet, the greater the chance to damage the emulsion, so I like to get the film through processing as quickly as possibly.
