ISO 400 film.
How large can ISO 400 film (eg fuji superia 400) be enlarged/printed without obvious grain? Thanks.

sad to say, up to 6R for best quality.. 8R and you will start to see the dots....
but then again, it has to depend on the quality of the shot... for night long exposure, 6R, for protrait can go up to 8R but will see a bit of grains

For me, S8R with no visible grains to me. ISO 800 will have acceptable grains to me at S8R.

hehheh, looks like visibility of grain is subjective.

i regularly blew up studioshot 10R with very good results from kodak 200
fuji 400 up to 8R very nice..

Thanks all for your views. 8R will be the max size I will blow up for 400 film, after looking through the opinions.

Anyone knows why there are 2 "8R" sizees? Cos the other R sizes only got one each for each digit - 3R, 4R, 5R, 6R etc.........
