Hmm.  reading Bob Festa's post, I'm thinking that perhaps he's right
that B&W film has more steps in the grayscale than color film...why is
it that I've had this feeling about color film's latitude being
greater?  Maybe because of grain issues.  B&W grain seems to intrude
more quickly with exposures off the optimal curve, doesn't it?
