I think there may be an issue here with what is "apparent grain" and what
is "real grain" and what is "grain aliasing".  In any case, I have yet to
find a neg film which *doesn't* show unacceptable amounts of "grain" in
things like blue sky, while pretty much *every* slide film gives reasonable

A frame from Velvia last night made an absolutely stunning print on Heavyweight
Matte.  Changed my mind about photo prints on matte paper!

I think I just have to accept the limitations of neg film, in that the greater
exposure latitude is at the cost of much more grain.
