    Kentmere was purchased by Ilford. The Bromide paper is still available at B&H. Its one of my favorites for cool tones. Never tried it for Lith, though.

    If its grade 4 it was not coated at HARMAN must be at least 6 years old, probably a lot older.

    tragedy:box of Bergger prestige fogged!please help me!

    Hi!I found at my grandfather's house 4 boxes of very expensive Bergger Prestige CB paper that I bought many years ago (8 years ago exactly)
    I made some copies with this paper and I notice that it'completly fogged without white and blsck....is there some possibility that these papers can work again more or less fine?...I don't pretend that it was as new...but I'd like only less fog and a little more of blacks and whites.Is there some possibilty?
