Re: Brooks might be right. Or not.

2 schools of thought.

The chromogenic films (in which I place C-41 black and white films like Ilford XP1 and color negative films) scan well because they are built up of dye versus silver halide crystals.

On the other hand, while traditional black and white film can be tricky to scan, some emulsions like Verichrome Pan scanned beautifully.

Much like traditional films versus T- and D- grain films (Kodak TMax and Ilford Delta emulsions), there can be more discrete rendering with silver halide crystals than dyes, in my experience and opinion.
