    Kodak sepia II warm toner

    I went down to the local photo suply store to buy sepia toner and this was all they had. How is this toner different than the "regular" kodak sepia toner? I need to tone some prints and I wonder what this stuff looks like.

    I'm not a 100% sure, but i read on B&H's website that its not supposed smell as bad as the regular sepia toner does.

    As far as what the actual toning looks like, i don't know i never used it.

    Gene,
    I think there is something in the archive if you do a search. Regular sepia toner is brown. this new stuff is more of a reddish brown. kind of ugly in my opinion. It matches the color sepia paper Kodak makes to print sepia toned B&W from a color neg.

    I'd mail order the original, if possilble. I don't think Kodak has discontinued it, they're just offering an alternative.

    Take care,
    Tom

    Dear Gene,

    According to Kodak, Sepia II is warmer.

    Thanks all

    Thanks all. For what I'm doing, redder is not necessarily bad. I'll give it a try.

    Hi Gene,
    I have not used sepia toners but I have used selenium. I toned Ilford MGIV WT FB in KRST (Kodak Rapid Selenium Toner) 1:9 at 7 minutes the color starts to shift from its greenish cast to purple- brown to reddish brown at 15 minutes. It was interesting to observe and I liked the effect it had on the image.

    Hi Gene

    The new sepia toner is about 5-10 times faster in the part a side of things. When they switched to this new version I had to change all my times for the different effects I had been use to over the years.
    To this day I curse the moron who decided to improve an a - b formula for absolutely no apparent reason
    If you have old times with sepia be prepared to diute part a drastically and cut your times.otherwise the prints bleach too fast and will turn the ugly reddish brown others suggest.
    I am still testing my times to get back to the same looks I produced before this stupid ,ridiculas, moronic,boy I hate the idiot who decided to improve it.
    O ya did I mention because the a part needs to be diluted the exhaustion points are now unpredictable.
