    I recently ran out of my usual stock of MG, so I decided to print on some Ilford Gallery that I've had waiting in the wings to try out.
    What gorgeous stuff!!

    With MG I proof on MG RC then make my "real" prints on fiber. It's very convenient to have the same emulsion on two kinds of stock.

    Is there any similar tonality comparison to be made between Ilfospeed and Gallery? I like using RC to make evaluation prints before commiting to the effort overhead that FB papers require.

    TIA.

    Ilfospeed is a different emulsion to Galerie. Not sure about speed differences though. Simon should be able to give clearer info.

    Thanks. Maybe I'll send him a note if he doesn't pick up on the thread.
