A question for Simon Galley really and I'm sorry if this has been answered elsewhere.
Are there any plans to bring the emulsion used in Ilford FB Classic to resin coated paper? Previously, the excellent consistency of Ilford products meant that with Multigrade IV you could proof on RC and make a final print on FB with no of very minimal recalibration needed.
I'm still using multigrade IV in RC, along with some Kentmere VC Select but I haven't made the switch to Classic for FB. Mostly because I have a stash of other papers but this is also (a small) part of the reason. I have only heard great things about the classic emulsion but having the same emulsion on a RC base would be a real bonus.
I don't know if others would find this useful but I certainly would.
