    Last year I printed some Fomalux 111 silver chloride contact prints using traditional LF negs that I use for projection gelatin silver prints with good results. I am working on a different project now where I am using Pyro HD with FP4+ on 8x10 negs for making alt prints. I thought I may give Fomalux 111 another try because I like the idea of not having to hand coat my papers sometimes (I am lazy) and the sharpness of the prints are a nice change too. I would be interested in hearing from anyone using Fomalux 111 paper with Pyro HD negs.

    Thanks,

    Larry

    Can't help on the Pyro but Fomalux does seem to require a lower DR (density range) than Lodima and pt/pd. In order to print on all 3 with same negative, I resorted to using Moersch Separol Soft for the Fomalux.
