Default Joshau Zyber and Grain on films

Can you please ask Joshau to do a FAQ about film-grains. I'm sick and tired of reading comments by people who says a disc has bad PQ because of grains. I think we need to educate some of these early addopters about the true nature of film-grains.

I second this...I would love to see an article that explains what grain is, why it is there, why it gets heavier in darker scenes, and how some directors use it stylistically for gritty feel. Some people seem to think it is a "bad" thing...whereas if grain did not exist, we would not have film...

I'll keep this suggestion in mind. In the meantime, I usually refer people to this article on the subject by Robert Harris:
