Statistical models of film grain simply don't work - grain isn't simply noise, rather is's embeded in the stucture of the image. Here were sumulate the latent image, and development process of an entire negative, one grain and one photon at a time.The results not only appear visually appealing, but sensiometric properties such as the characteristic curve, Granularity and reciprocity failure emerge without being explcitly programmed into the simulation.
