    use of Graded papers.

    Graded paper lighting runs yellow to orangeish yellow
    while VC papers require amber to redish amber. Dan

    Paper+light

    Calumet ZoneVI LED safelight. Has the switch for graded and VC papers. Never had any fog problem with the VC which is unknowingly common with most lights. Paper-personally why even start with RC? I always thought that stuff was for bathroom mats. If you want to make prints then make them on fiberbased paper. We're talking chevy and porsche here folks....not that the look of some RC paper aint bad-just exactly how long does the stuff last?
    No one knows for sure and that's good enough for me.......
    Best, Peter

    RC multicontrast is a great beginner's choice. I have used it for years and now I have started doing fibre. I can only say fibre is a hell to use if you haven't got the basics in the darkroom down first.

    Sometimes it's hell even if you do have the basics in hand :-)

    If RC had been invented first we wouln't have this problem :-)

    I don't think there would be a RC paper on the market were
    it not for machine processing; the over-night of years ago
    and today's one hour. The comparatively small market
    apart from the tonnages put through machines would
    not have prompted RC's production. Dan

    Here in the States there are many Graded RC papers.
    I don't know how well they are stocked in Italy. Dan
