B&W Film Chart

I saw a Black and White film chart the other day (online) and can't remember where I saw it. Essentially it had the ISO, grain, usage, and brand (Only ilford and Kodak) compared with the proper usage. Anyone know where I might find something like this?

It wasn't the Massive Dev Chart, was it?

If not, that one's pretty handy, at any rate.

What do you mean by "proper usage"?

That was an interesting read but I wouldn't say it was accurate. It reckons that Delta 3200 and Kodak T3200 were "fine grained". Another quote was:-
"Black and white film is also available in C-41 processing films. This is not true black and white film and will not give you good results and should be avoided at all costs"

I don't use C41 film myself but I've seen some stunning shots by C41 shooters including some posted in this thread.

the c41 b/w can produce great images IMHO but i prefer more tradational b/w formulations myself
As tor delta 3200 and tmax 3200 being fine grained i guess it's relative. they are fine grained for the iso rating if processed in the right developer
they can be pretty nasty if processed in a regular developer (another reason to do your own)

What do you consider a "regular developer?"

I have a nostalgia for the look of traditional B&W film, but have gotten excellent results from the C41 versions. Scanning is much easier as well.
