    Rollei Vintage Papers

    I visit APUG almost daily and I haven't seen anything about what--in Australia anyway--is quite a new product.
    Made in the "EU", rather expensive, perhaps from the Maco stable.

    Information? Comments?

    Below from my regular supplier/stockist:

    "The new range of Rollei Vintage B&W papers. Some stock has arrived and more is on the way.Rollei introduces the original baryta paper

    VINTAGE 111 for the traditional silver gelatine photography.

    I guess most - if not all of them - are made by foma. The codes (111, 131, 331, etc) make it kind of suspicious anyway, but I have seen the foma logo on the boxes too. To be precise, it was "Produced by" with the foma logo Even the spectral sensitivity charts at rollei's pdfs seem to be taken from foma's pdfs...

    It's Foma at twice the price. The new labels must be very expensive

    Yeah this definitely looks like Foma. The characteristics of these "Rollei" papers pretty much mirror those of Foma.
