    John Sexton posted the following on Facebook regarding the new Ilford papers:

    "Exciting news for users of fiber base silver gelatin photographic paper! Anne and I have done some preliminary testing of the papers, and the results look very promising. Look for more detailed information in an upcoming installment of my eNewsletter. You can subscribe at my web site: www.johnsexton.com."

    Very interesting. I hope there isn't any downside to whatever they have done to either stop fixer being absorbed (a barrier?) or to accelerate washing.

    This is very good news indeed, shows that Harman have confidence in the future of silver printing, and according to the newsletter I have just recieved from Silverprint the prices of both new papers are the same as the MGIVFB paper, both the Cooltone and classic paper is the same, which is even better news

    This is awesome news. I just stocked up last month on various sizes of MG IV FB so I won't be in the market for a while but I can't wait to give them a shot.

    Would love to see an introductory combo pack (say 10 sheets of each type) for people to try the new papers without a big investment.

    That would be very nice, indeed.

    I have yet to actually work with any FB papers, may have to give these new ones a shot! I work mostly with Ilford RC papers.

    Dang. Just bought a box of 250 8x10 MGIV FB. Oh well. My VC head settings are ISO-calibrated to MGIV FB and cross-calibrated to MGIV RC. This makes the two very close to interchangeable for me on the fly. A new paper means recalibrating. Not a bad thing, I suppose. But not now for a while yet.

    Nevertheless, way to go Harman!

    This is fantastic news! Emailed freestyle as soon as I saw this thread regarding the new Ilford Cooltone paper and got this response back from Pablo:

    "Our current ETA for the new ILFORD FB line of products is 12/18 and the full line should be live on our website on Monday."

    Thank you Ilford!!! With so many papers going by the wayside it's so awesome to see some new offerings. Yippee!

    More good news. Looks like the new FB Classic and Cooltone will be priced the same as MG IV. Well done Ilford!
