    I thought Bergger VC fiber warm tone was discontinued and only old stock available. What is the status?

    I think it is an excelent paper, well worth trying if you can get hold of it.

    Made by Ilford since Forte went under years ago. Bergger film and paper was made by Forte in the past but since they folded Ilford have made the overpriced Bergger paper.
    I can't tell the difference between Bergger WT and Ilford WT paper.

    I'm thinking the people with the Bergger emulsion would want to keep it similar to the past paper. The old Bergger emulsion tones in KRST somewhat like the new Adox Variotone Premium than Ilford WT. Not the same but more similar than other available papers. Adox Variotone is a bright white paper base while Ilfort WT is on a buff white. Anyone using the Bergger paper that is not old stock?
