    I've just recently bought 250 sheets of Ilford Warmtone FB in 10x8 semi-matt. Had my first session with it and you know... I just prefer the Warmtone RC in Pearl. Maybe I'm mad ;-)

    If anyone in Australia is looking for 242 sheets of new paper or (long shot) trade for RC please let me know. I'd be looking for about $200 inc. AUS postage. It's new - ie. just landed here from B&H. Cost me about $285ish to get here.

    Thanks.

    I have to admit, I am weighing this lot up.

    I am a fan of the RC variant as well. What didn't you like about it?

    Beauty. Might be able to get some more of this fine paper at a price I can afford at this time of the year.

    I generally prefer a matt finish and love the 'feel' of this FB, but without toning, I just can't get any pop or contrast to my pics. Toning is something I have no interest in as my darkroom lacks any proper ventilation. Obviously it's a lack of experience and skill, but I don't feel I have the patience required. Being self taught and purely an amateur I guess I can afford to be lazy ;-) I dunno... I read so much about how I SHOULD use FB but I think the RC paper just clicks with me.

    On a side note - I love those pinhole pics Shane!
