Galerie is my favorite paper. Otherwise Galerie comes in Grades 2 and 3. This would be Grade 4. The fact it is panchromatic is sort of an inconvenience. But since I have an infrared viewer... it's not going to bother me. The fact it is fast is also going to make it harder for me to control... But I am looking forward to experimenting with it.
    You are right on all counts , as I have been told by Harman.. Basically Grade 4 Galerie Paper with an extended red sensitivity. If you plan on using it Bill no safelights. Also not sure but I doubt it comes in cut sheets.

    Dear All,

    These very specialist coatings ( in RC and FB ) are designed for laser exposure ( very, very short exposures) and it is not made in sheet sizes as it is UNSUITABLE for conventional exposure and usage.

    I can assure you it has been thouroughly tested outside of these parameters to see if it had any commercial or specialist application or opportunity, it does not and it will not be sold as cut sheets.

    Thank you Simon. Some sells 8x10 sheets cut from long rolls and some wants to try these papers at their darkroom. What kind of problem they would face with ?

    But Bob Carnie used it in the classic way too :

    I work exclusively with the Harman Paper for laser and exposure, I do not make RC prints though and that is consistent with my enlarger work.

    No , I have never used the RC or Fiber digital paper under an enlarger.

    I have only used it as intended with RGB laser exposure.

    Others have asked me but I am not interested, I use Ilford Warmtone and MG4 for enlarger work.

    Ok Bob, not you but Apug fellow frotog:

    I've used rolls of both the ilfospeed digital RC and fiberbased under an enlarger with excellent results. The speed is about the same as MG IV. You need to work in pitch darkness - no safelight. Contrast is approx. grade 3-1/2 to 4 ...

    No problem, I have been known to try a lot of abstract things but this is not one of them, funny it would be so easy but I just don't see the reason to try it.
