- 8x10 Format
Sirius - I sometimes like conspicuous grain in 35mm shots, which I always print small anyway. But I rarely like it in larger formats, even in 120 roll film, which I print considerably larger. I mainly shoot 35mm for a spontaneous poetic feel rather than high detail. But once I move up to 6X7 or 6X9 format, those prints might need to compete with prints enlarged from 4x5 and 8x10 film in the same portfolio, so in fact demand fussier attention to detail than even the sheet film versions, which need less overall enlargement. It's kinda nice to have a small 35mm "alter-ego" option, where I can shoot and print with a different mood once in awhile.
