    Kentmere Bromide 2

    I have no experience with this paper and may purchase it because I have found it comes in rolls-cost effective. Is anyone able to give me an idea of its characteristics? I do know that it is cool in tone-how does it behave it were to be slightly toned? Range with filters? etc. Thank you.

    It's fixed Grade 2 so can't be altered with filters although Dr BeersVariable Contrast developer will give you half a grade either way.

    Thank you Ian-I read the 2 as paper weight not grade. Have you printed with this paper?

    The original yes, it was OK, but I've not used it for well over 30 years and so can't give you an opinion of the Ilford/ Harman made version. I no longer use fixed grade papers.
