    I have some boxes of Grades 1, 2 & 3 in 16"x12" and some 24"x20" in Grdes 2 & 3 of the last Record Rapid before it was discontinued and it's now all totally unusable. The base has turned pink and the paper is badly fogged.

    Other papers stored alongside are still fine, so that's a risky purchase.

    Blast !

    I have some 70 sheets of 20x24 Record Rapid c 1983~ish that I was saving for a rainy day

    I used some of my other old Agfa stock of similar vintage a couple of years ago and it was fine - base fog was a fraction high but nothing to get upset about.

    Since it was OK I assumed the big stuff would all still be OK

    I had better break out a pack and see how it prints

    I had been keeping it for something worthy - the way these old fashioned papers could handled the shaddows and highlights was simply stunning

    1983 Record Rapid is quite different as the paper contains Cadmium which stabilises it. Tthe paper was modified on the late 1980's to meet stricter pollution laws in the EU (Common Market), the labelling changed at that point, as did the range of image tone/colours achievable wth it. Many other warm tone papers suffered from the removal of the Cadmium.

    Bromide papers keep far better and I've used 1950's materials with mainly just a loss in speed & a little contrast.

    Could the use of Cadmium in photographic papers have been re-engineered to reduce environmental impact?

    Manufacturers re-engineered the papers without Cadmium but there's no satisfactory alternative which allows the same flexibility of exposure and development to control the image tone/colour.

    Kodak where the last major manufacturer to use Cadmium in a B&W paper - Ektalure, probably because the EU banned the use of Cadmium before the US.

    Ian, thanks for the re-assurance

    I will keep it safe and wait for something worthy to print with it

    Boy, it sure is quiet on this section of the Forum nowadays! Anyhow, I'm not sure if this actually qualifies as it's an auction, but a couple of nice NIkons on Bumblebee Auctions, the Police disposal website. I've never dealt with them myself, and am only passing on information from another website. The FM2s mostly come with 24mm primes!
