Why is my developed film grainy?

Film developing for longer than normal (aka pushing your film in processing) will also create more noticeable grain. Another thing that will make grain more apparent: enlarging your negative! The more you zoom in, the more texture made of tiny crystals you’ll see.

Should film grain be high or low?

The higher your ISO, the higher your chance to noticeably feature grain or film noise, if you’re shooting digitally. If you’re shooting something with a lower ISO, there is a lower chance of grain being noticeable. A lower ISO is recommended in almost every lighting scenario, especially well lit environments.

What does adjusting film grain do?

It’s possible to create film grain on pretty much any camera. You’ll see it in a lot of low-lighting photos, for example. And higher ISOs have a higher light sensitivity, so adjusting that setting tends to produce a grainer image. You can also add film grain during post-production.

Why are my 35mm photos blurry?

The most common reasons that lead to unsharp film photos are motion blur, caused by using too slow a shutter speed; missed focus, caused by not having enough depth of field to work with; and underexposure, caused by not exposing for the shadows.

Does film grain affect FPS?

Found a guide to improve FPS here. Apparently reducing film grain and increasing FOV will improve the FPS.

Why do so many games use film grain?

Early games, notably Mass Effect, would overlay a film grain effect for the purpose of fooling the human brain into thinking the image/textures/details had more detail than they actually did. Later games now use it as more of a look and feel.

Should I turn off film grain in games?

Properly implemented film grain should eliminate posterization/banding in games. Noise is far more natural looking and should be less distracting – particularly in motion.
