    Any reason for this sentiment? What exactly is "wrong" with RC paper?

    I agree... yet some of my favorite prints have been made on RC paper. No absolutes for me.

    I make small runs of prints too. I have references etc. (One an ex-Natl Geographic Staff Photographer) PM me if you want a quote.

    Cheers.

    Nothing is wrong. I just don't like the feel or surface of the paper. And, archivability. Also, RC (in my opinion, and please feel free to disagree/ignore) does not respond that well (maybe at all) to increase/decrease of time in the developer. Also, sometimes, I prefer to rub my palms on parts of the print while it is in developer bath to increase the blacks. I know it is not ideal, but gives me more flexibility from burning selectively over and over again and saving some paper. I am a student, so have to keep a good watch on the budget as well.

    Sounds like someone learnt a crapload of folk lore off the interweb. There is no difference in archival duration between FB abd RC paper when processed properly. As to your strange processing procedures........

    To Each His Own - not to go away from initial post, no need to go over again in RC vs FB .

    OR, blame my professor. I have not aged either of the papers to determine their archival characteristics. If you say both are equal, so be it.

    Well, yeah I would say it is not standard. But it works for me. Again, learnt this technique from my professor.
