How can it be so detailed?

  1. Hello,

    Although I have never used a Minox 8 X 11(007 ones : ) ) , I've seen
    many excellent pix taken by those little cameras.
    But how can you achieve such high resolutions without ugly hugh
    grains with those tiny films?

    The films for Minox are different from 35m ones???
  2. most of those photos are taken on reallyreally fine grain ISO 25 black & white film. i use ISO 400 in mine and get the big lumpy grains, though under the grain the photos are still very sharp.
  3. I thought the only thing under the grain was the base!

    Large grained film can be as sharp as fine, but the smooth tonal gradations one gets from
    fine grained slow film are not available!
  4. HAHAHA Thanks guys! Especially Richard with the photo.
