    Agfa paper?

    Hi,
    Since AgfaPhoto is gone and it's getting harder and harder to find Agfa paper I've done some online research to find paper from other manufactureres.

    What I've found so far is that I like the look of Foma Fomabrom glossy barryta. I was in Berlin this weekend and bought a pack from Foto-Impex. I have only done one print so far but It looks like Agfa MCC 111 FB. Then, I discovered that on a small sticker on the pack it says Fomabrom N111.

    Is this the same paper?

    I have also discovered that Tetenal sell glossy vario-contrast RC paper named "Glossy (310)". Is this the same as Agfa glossy multicontrast MCP 310 RC paper?

    I have gotten the impression that Foma makes their own paper. The N 111 is a graded paper isn't it? The "N" stands for normal contrast (presumably a Grade 2?). Foma also makes Fomabrom Variant III which is the variable contrast version. I haven't tried it yet but have some on the way. See:

    Tetenal were rebadging Agfa papers.

    They may shop around for alternatives.
