    Thanks
    Hello Mike,
    Yes, there is a thread somewhere that confirms this. The only thing you have to be careful of IIRC is not to use the same working solution for B&W after fixing colour films in it.

    Mine were fairly dusty too. I emailed Harman with the batch numbers, one box of MGIV was made in 2008, the other, and the Galerie were from 2006.

    Hi Tom

    The MGFB Matt was very very dusty.

    The Galerie was suprisingly clean

    Hadn't realised just how heavy one box of paper could be... Not the sort of thing to go lugging home on public transport :o

    AND it turns out there are two rolls of 8"x186m per carton, so at five quid a roll, that is extra good value

    Ironically the paper is on 'back order'! I wonder where you collected it from BUT the chemicals to make 40 gallons of bleach/fix arrived.

    Cheers Dave

    Ordered online and opted for "collect in store". If they are sending out cartons of two, then it comes as no suprise that it is on back order.

    I wonder how much dev & blix is needed for 75½m² of paper...

    Dave, you asked for an opinion on this paper - Posting my comments here as it may be of interest to others.

    It is at the budget end of Kodak's range and that shows in the thickness of the paper. Measured 0.20mm thick compared to 0.24mm for Endura of Fuji Crystal (Ilford MGIV portfolio is 0.30mm by comparison). Being on a heavy roll, it is a bit of a pain to cut in to usable sheets - A custom made papersafe would be an advantage, looks like I'll be hacking up some ½" MDF tomorrow.

    To my (untrained) eye, colour rendition is acceptable and I would be reasonably happy to show the prints once mounted. At £10 per roll, I'm quite happy to use this stuff for much of my colour printing.

    Glad the paper isn't fogged!..........Just having pushed a few buttons on my calculator. If you got two 186M rolls for a tenner that is...
    2x186=372M or 37200 cm's / 25 (10") that will give you 1488 10x8 prints at 0.672p per print...not bad ah?
    Cheers Dave
