    Agfa Multicontrast with Ilford Multigrade filters

    Guys, do you know if Agfa Multicontrast paper is fully compatable with the Ilford filtering system? Do all the grades correspond?

    Fintan,

    being so glad I'm able to answer a question ... ;-)

    Both Multicontrast Classic and MC Premium are compatible to every kind of filtering with the Ilford standard.
    Sorry but I only have found the german version of the data sheet at http://www.agfa.com/de/photo/pdf/products/P-SW51-D2.pdf , which confirms this theory

    #00, #0, #1/2, #1, #2, and #5 works for me. The rest are repetition. I'm using the Zone IV cold light head. Result may differ from yours. But generally the lower grades are usable.
