The images on photographic film are made up of millions of tiny light sensitive grains.
A slower film (ISO 25, 50, 64, 100) has smaller / finer grains and produces a better qualtiy image when printed or scanned..
Faster films (ISO 200, 400 and higher) have larger grains and produce more grainy photographic prints or scans.
Generally slide films (also known as transparencies or diapositives) create a better quality image than negative films at any given ISO rating.
If a film image is scanned at too high a setting for the film's quality then these grains become obvious and ruin the scanned image.
The secret to creating the best possible digital image is to scan at the optimum scanner setting for the film in question.
