    Berger papers

    Anyone knows where is Berger now with their papers. Are they comparable to the time when Forte made 'em?

    The new Bergger VCCB is far from what it was. I have made comparison prints on both the Ilford WT and the new Bergger VCCB and there is very little difference, maybe a tad softer than the Ilford WT but hardly worth buying since you can only get the Bergger in 25 sheet packages.
    The new VCCB is also as the Ilford WT not very receptive to Selenium toning.

    That is alarmant. What you mean with that? Not receptive:
    1. in the sense that does not increase a photograph permanence, or
    2. in the sense that does not change a photograph tone toward brown?
    3. or both

    If you want a paper that tones well you might want to try the new Adox Variotone (warmtone on bright white base).
    One of the "fathers" of this paper is Wolfgang Moersch and one explicit goal was tonability.

    In my experience Ilford Warmtone tones beautifully, better than most. Adox Variotone is also an Ilford paper.

    No it's made by Ilford/Arman Technology, I think we may have seen unlabelled boxes of it on the recent Ilford factory tour.
