    Hi, anyone knows of a good dealer for photo paper (fuji or kodak) in the UK/London?

    Ideally 24" x 20" sheets...

    Thanks

    Welcome to APUG, like Steve I can recommend both Silverprint & Ag Photographic.

    great! silverprint is a bit expensive. Thanks for recommending AG.

    between SUPRA and ULTRA endura what would you recommend? I read kodak's own explanation, contrast etc. but I want to know from experienced users. I'm printing a series of landscapes and portraits...

    Is it true Fuji is not available anymore in sheets?

    Thanks so much...

    SUPRA is more normal in contrast. ULTRA is too high in contrast for normal use but meant for special purposes (eg. if you have low-contrast under- or overexposed negs, or like high contrast). I haven't used ULTRA personally, though, but I find that even the SUPRA has sometimes too much contrast, never too little. PORTRA was even milder in contrast but discontinued years ago.

    SUPRA will probably be discontinued, so buy it while you can to freezer. You can read this in the datasheet and due to fact that it's disappeared in KODAK Website.

    I've used AG Photographic. Excellent prices in RA-4 papers.
