    Does Fuji make black and white paper?

    Hi Guys-
    Does Fuji offer a black and white paper in other parts of the world besides the US?...I've never seen any here in the US...I'd be very interested in it if they do.

    Yes they do. It's extremely nice paper. They make a single weight fibre paper too.

    That's great! I wish though that it was a little less expensive..Maybe I'll give it a try. They should offer it in the US

    I had the opportunity to try a few 25 sheet packs of 8x10 and a 50 pack of 5x7 single weight Rc papers in their various versions. Fujiburo and something else I forget a year or so back.

    I actually didn't like it all that much. It was a bit slower in developing than comparable ilford papers and tones weren't as deep black as I like. Their single weight was also thinner than ilford single weight vc rc and arista papers. Not worth the extra cost IMO.

    I tested the Rembrant years back against a lot of other offerings,,, Ilford Warmtone was my choice but Rembrant was very nice.
    Fuji does not import this paper into North America, so when I bought it the customs and duties charge was horrific.

    Fuji makes Rembrandt (FB) and Fujibro (RC) paper. The Rembrandt is graded, and the Fujibro comes in both graded and variable contrast papers. As noted above, the Fujibro is a bit thinner but I find it to be a fast paper. It dries incredibly flat. I've been using it in the past couple of postcard exchanges because it is the cheapest paper available out here in Japan (as opposed to Fuji film, which is more expensive in Japan than what I can buy in the U.S.). The graded RC (slowly and reluctantly) produces a nice sandy lith print, but the VC paper and Rembrandt do not.

    As far as I know, none of these papers are sold outside of Japan.

    Maybe we should club together to butter up Rachelle and get her to set up an export business for the Fuji stuff we can't get over here

    Rembrant is variable contrast, not graded. Default grade without a filter is 2. There was another version that exhibited default grade 3 without a filter; that one was discontinued just under 5 years ago. I tested both in 2006 and preferred the default-grade-2 version, so no loss as far as I'm concerned.

    That's exactly what Dirk does with his Japan Exposures shop. He buys at retail in Tokyo and sells worldwide. The link below even prices Rembrant in £.

    I tried the Rembrandt single weight a few years ago. It was nothing special.

    My recollection of Rembrant was it was a VC paper double weight. Neutral Toned.
