Adox MCP 312 is a great paper for sure. Actually, it is the first RC paper that I really like - and that I use for prints, not only for contact sheets ;-) I never was a fan of the Ilford MGIV paper, to be honest. MCP 312 has a wonderful tonal range from whitest white to darkest black and with beautiful midtones. Another thing that I like is that it is not too fast - it gives me enough time for dodging and burning.
The semi-matte surface is just beautiful.
The base paper comes from Schoeller. I didn't find it too thin, but then again I only use 24 * 30 cm.
AFAIK yes. The base is different, but the emulsion should be the same. Mirko Böddecker from ADOX Fotoimpex is a member/partner of this forum. Maybe he reads this post and can supply a more precise answer.Like MCC 110, is this another old Agfa emulsion that Adox has reissued?
MCP is cheaper than Ilford's MGIV at fotoimpex.de (http://www.fotoimpex.de/catalogus/fi...1059-full.html ).
