    The devil is in the details though

    "Adjusted reversal process. User-friendly." and elsewhere they talk about "Since we use our original proprietary recipe, the developing solutions might have a little different chemicals combination than the regular developers." I would say that it's a high speed paper with some proprietary reversal procedure, I assume they'll ship the paper & chems together or something.

    They might want to update their spiel about the demise of DP paper now that Harman are about to reintroduce their offering ...

    It does sound as though this is a paper optimised for reversal processing rather than a direct positive paper, as Daire Quinlan says.

    I'm sure there was a thread last year where someone was enthusing about possibly getting photobooth paper from eastern europe slit to normal sizes ... I can't find it now but I'm pretty sure the discussion was on similar lines to this KS.

    Harman/Ilford has both RC and Fiber.

    is PET rc ? sorry for my cluelessness

    as far as i have read and was told by KODAK
    rc materials are just as if not more archival than FB papers ..
    i can understand that some people don't like rc cause, it looks plastic
    i have grown fond of it over the years ...
