    Best, Peter
    Emaks 2 RC is more neutral, but FB is more yellow. I have some paper scans in gallery, but it is hard to see this warm tone on crapy scan. Here is one example of print scan emaks 2 double paper weight:

    I found the kentmere bromide to be much colder than ilford gallerie and not quite as rich. Emaks is warmer than gallerie and, to my eyes, not quite as sharp. I use ilford gallerie for most enlarging and emaks for contact printing my 4x5s. Although i just ordered 20x24 emaks because i could not afford the gallerie in that size. I'll report back once i start printing on the paper. there is a beautiful micro contrast and look that gallerie has that no other paper can match (that I have found), although the emaks comes close.

    Paul, Tom mentioned Ilford's competitive pricing
    in the UK. State side Galerie is $39 vs $15 for
    Emaks. That is not competitive. Just what
    is a 25 sheet pack of 8x10 Galerie going
    for in the UK? $18 in US currency?
    That's a competitive price. Dan

    Competitive I'd say in the UK; about 20% above but
    State Side over 250% higher. Both products ship
    from Europe. So, why so high this side?

    BTW, Galerie, $35 from Central Camera.
    Central has good selections of Graded
    Bergger, Ilford, and Oriental. Dan

    That's a discrepancy I don't understand either.

    If they are so similarly priced in the UK, why are the prices so far apart in the US?

    I have a feeling that Freestyle has more bargaining power with Fotokemika than with Ilford.

    I've never tried Ilford Galerie, but Emaks is gorgeous stuff. Try it in Amidol some time. Wow. The Kentmere Bromide is also very nice. I had great results with it in Ansco 130 and Ilford MG developers. Incredibly crisp paper.

    Although I should bow out as I am a one paper kind of guy (except for scraps that I'm using up), and it's VC all the way for me.
