    I'd be interested in shooting it in camera with a lens just to have a print that is a unique first-generation image.

    I'm not so sure. You may have trouble with the contrast.

    I've tried this paper. Unless you are interested in some special effects, you need to pre-expose (fog) the paper first. I suggest an in-camera Zone II or III pre-exposure with a diffuse filter, such as the DIY filter in the attachment. Ilford suggests a pre-exposure in the darkroom prior to loading the paper into the camera. I found that to be cumbersome.

    Did the great FT have access to MGiV-RC then?

    Looks cool, especially neat is that they offer pre-cut sheets in standard negative sizes like 4x5 and 5x7.

    But can this really only be bought in the UK?? (webshop of Harman seems to limit itself to shipment within the UK?)

    Thanks for the suggestion on pre-exposure. Now if we can find a way to get the paper without too much complication in the U.S....

    Is that an exposure producing a (near) black or very dark grey, if this would have been a negative paper?
    Or one that is 2 to 3 stops underexposed?
