I'm quite new at filmmaking. I have a question. it might sound a bit silly but I want to be absolutely sure.
Does digital, 16mm, super 16mm and 35mm have a different look to them? I know that they have different resolutions and therefore 35mm, for example, can hold more detail than digital. But just concernng the look of the image, is there any difference?
I apologize if this question seems a bit silly. I just don't want to have any doubts about it.

The 16mm formats are more grainy than the 35mm formats, plus have a deeper depth of field.

May I just know one more thing.
Isn't grain got to do with the resolution? In other words, doesn't higher resolution mean less grain?
And does all film have grain?
Thanks again for your help

All film stocks have grain, just some have finer grain than others.
