    Does anyone know if the Bergger contact paper is Chloro-bromide or silver chloride paper?

    Thanks

    Azo is the last of the pure silver chloride papers.

    Bergger contact paper is dead...for now

    Just spoke with Maja Stroebel at Lotusview Camera in Austria...according to her Bergger is no longer making the contact paper due to lack of interest...in addition (she says) many of Bergger papers are in danger of drying up because of being directly tethered to Forte's financial troubles...I also spoke with a friend in Budapest who thinks that Forte is about finished....but thats only speculation on his part, no real hard evidence.
