Tri X....had a large identifiable grain pattern.

While useful for "press" photographer and conditions requiring an iso low light conditions of 1600 and even 3200...it left a grain that faltered under enlargement.

Panasonic X held up well for 17x22 enlargements.

With digital screens can be used to defender "old time grain patterns."

Sincerely,

yes....negatives endure....but. who has the patience to review tens of thousands.....In my experience only the printed photo or the printed word endures.
