    Its been a few years as we decided to only print the fiber material,so I am not sure.
    This paper was to compliment our fibre version as a testing material., We got rid of the Ciba machine that could process bw as well and decided to shelf the paper and use it for a specific project ,, this project has not materialized as yet.

    Here's a question; could this be utilized as a replacement for Panalure? (accepting that no, it obviously will not behave the same, but an idea..)

    I was thinking the same thing.

    All these reports make this material sound ideal for making black and white prints from color negatives. It sounds a bit slow, but usable and useful, for camera use.

    Dear All,

    It is a good product for sure, but designed very specifically for intense laser exposure, we have looked at its properties for other applications ( eg regular exposure or Panalure type performance ) and we would not suggest that it is technically suitable for these applications.

    Right from the horses mouth, I have never tried it as an enlarger paper , as our needs are different from some.

    Funny...I'm on my third roll of ilfospeed digital RC. No problems under my enlarger. I actually prefer it to MGIV for my needs (i.e. making a good print).

    While it may be panchromatically sensitive does this make it different from RA4 paper in safelight terms?

    Is there any reason why a sodium safelight such as a DUKA wouldn't be OK as it is for RA4? Makes life much easier if the DUKA would be safe for it.

    Can I take it that in effect it is a one grade paper at about 3.5/4 grade so quite restricted compared to normal RCVC?

    Thanks

    It does act like a graded paper. I used it for making murals from 35mm negs that printed on mgiv rc at a filtration of 3 to 3-1/2 in 8x10 underneath a durst condenser. The murals were made under a cls 1000 color head. The dmax on the pearl surface digital gallerie rc is noticeably greater than that of the mgiv rc - in fact it blows it out of the water. The emulsion responds very well to ansco 120, effectively giving some contrast control. I print color all the time and so am used to working in total darkness... have no idea about color safelights.
