    I seem to have inherited a 100ft x 4ft roll of the above paper. Some years old but I'm going to give it a try. Any thing I should know?

    Good Evening, Schlapp,

    I used a little of the stuff some years ago. If I recall correctly, it has a good, clean white, just a touch less intense than that of Ilford MG. Nothing wrong with it at all, but I just tended to stock and use various sizes of MG and didn't need another variable. I have no idea about its aging characteristics.

    Like you I have some rolls of Kodak B&W RC paper which my local Pro lab gave me, 8" &12" 300ft lengths are quite useful for contact prints and the odd non important quick print for scanning. The Kodak RC papers seem to keep very well, and only age slowly.
