    If there in anyone out there who is using the Adox Vario Classic enlarging paper sold by J and C, I'd be interested in hearing how it compares to other neutral toned, VC papers.

    Thanks.

    Allen-please check the gallery where I uploaded my first print with this paper
    Very easy to work with. Fine surface. A little thin. Doesn't tone that much but overall a nice paper....

    I've used it a little and I like it. In Dektol 1+1 it gets very cool, almost blue. In Eukobrom 1+9 it's neutral, with a hint of coldness. The matte surface is as matte as Ilfords 5K surface. Some people have complained about poor shadow separation, I haven't experienced that, but I have not used it that much yet.
