    I have printed with Fomatone 131, 542 and 542 II papers in the past but I'm slowly switching to RC papers. Is anyone willing to share any info on Fomatone RC (PE) papers? Base colour compared to Ilford WT RC, finish - the paper comes in 311 (glossy), 312 (matt), and 313 (velvet), paper thickness, etc.

    I used some fomaspeed glosy - very neutral look in Ilford mulitgrade developer. Great stuff for the price.

    Fomatone not Fomaspeed is what I'm interested in.

    Me too, but I'm thinking of leaving FB except for 4x5 contacts. The Fomatone PE line looks tempting.

    Miha,

    best is to get small box and try it :smile:. I don't know about Slovenia - but in Zagreb you can get Foma papers in praxis shop in city center (www.praxis.hr), and if you will go there don't forget to get some leftovers of efke films :smile:.

    pozdrav :smile:,

    Praxis only carries Fomaspeed and Fomabrom papers, same is true for our distributor. I might visit Zagreb soon - your Museum of contemporary art is simply great!

    Pozdrav.
