No, the regular stuff. I normally tone the WT in highly dilute brown toner.
MGIV (not WT) will go too purple for my tastes after about 5 minutes in KRST 1+19. I've argued this before. I'm tempted to start toning a bunch of small test strips to send people who dont believe me. A couple of points though:
1. I seem to be VERY sensitive to changes in tone in B&W prints and see differences others don't or say they don't.
2. I develop in LPD 1+2 for 3 minutes, fix in film strength rapid fixer without hardner for one minute. This might have sonething to do with it.
But this is about MCC 110 which responds less than MGIV, or at least the batches I have do.
I agree with you as I see the sam changes.for me MGIV IS JUST ABOUT PERFECT FOR selenium and sulphide toning;slight changes without being over whelming.
Well that´s what we would claim for MCC as well ans has been observed by the topic starter.
No one has comented on sulfur toning and MCC before.
MCC ofcourse responds more strongly to any kind of sulfur toning just like any other paper would.
I received a box of MCC110 5x7" 100 sheets this morning from Fotoimpex in Germany. Box is white but label is black with just border in red. Emulsion number but no production date at least as advertised on Adox website. Can somebody tell me about production date of that one ? See pictures below.
That confusion should not have happened if Adox had added just a note on a sheet of paper put into the box after changing the emulsions. With processing chemicals one is always advised to follow the latest instructions delivered with the package.
Why not the same with photographic paper?
This summer I received two boxes of 9 1/2 X 12 inch paper with the identical emulsion number but completed with the caracters P-02-13 . I suppose that means february 2013. My boxes were red with black labels but I think white boxes are used for some sizes as long as they have them in storage. My papers were of the new and restored quality which means excelent.
