    Scotch 1000 color.......the grainiest film EVER! Even Konica's 3200 speed color had less grain......LOL

    I once had an instruction manual for a Japanese camera that said, "Please to put eyeball in viewfinder." :)

    That's interesting. I wonder how much nit picking people are going to do to either say its not as good as or better than Acros I

    Hopefully they will put out more than just 35mm too

    Yep....I think 1987 was it's intro year. I liked it, you could push it to 6400 with no lose of detail.

    One of the grainiest films I ever used (besides Scotch Chrome) was the "RGB" films. I used them briefly in the 1980s. They were actually Kodak motion picture films like 5247, etc. They had brief popularity here in LA due to the local movie film lab processing. It was cheap and you got both negs and slides when processed. The films were fine when used as movie film but terrible for still camera use. It wasn't a pleasing sort of grain and the colors had a washed out look. I wasted some good photo ops using that stuff.

    I like grain, that's why Tri-X is my fave.. but i'm looking forward to trying some of this.
