It has little to do with a specific camera or film.

Set up exactly the same scene, with exactly the same lighting. Take two photos. One using a 35 mm camera with pushed TRI-X and the other a medium format camera with a very fine grain film.

Then compare the 3D feel. I bet it is different!

NOTE - apertures chosen so that you get the same DOF.

It depends on the scene. Some would be better suited for Tri-X and some better suited with medium format. However, this conversation is not about contrast it is about the illusion of depth.

As I said - a very stubborn man

Print both at e.g. 40x60 cm and you will see that the grainy Tri-X does not look as 3D as the fine grain medium format film print.
