    Good news.

    But, did Fuji really mean to say it has "world’s highest level of graininess" ?

    Japanese rarely translates well. I'll be in line for a roll or ten.

    If it's the kind you can make whisky out of, sure, if it's the kind in film... ehhhh, not so much.

    Ah, that was the great power of film photography ... I used to try all different types of film and developing because it was able to create such a variety of flavors. The "grain" was such a factor in the image ... sometimes it became the image (I think @limr would agree).
    For some reason using digital post processing does not seem to fulfill me in the same way ... possibly because the physical factor is missing.

    I don't have anything against grain either but I suspect the Fuji quote is a mistake. I think they meant to say the film has fine grain not "the world’s highest level of graininess."
