    This is a long shot, but does anyone know the speed of Fomatome MG classic fiber paper. I have the spec sheet which lists the ISO(R) values for Ilford filters, but not the P values.

    I want them for starting values for my analyser pro calibration.

    Cheers.

    LOL. I already gathered that, but how slow... :wink:

    I have been using Fomabrom III which is great and the tech sheet lists P and R speeds. Funny they don't mention paper speed for this one. Maybe they don't want to put people off!

    I don't have the numbers, but the speed is comparable to Forte Polywamtone.

    Thanks, All. That should get me started.
