    So do you mean thickness or stiffness? CA II is not quite as stiff as C.
    I have done extensive testing on both, but have not yet tried the type II
    Fujiflex version. Type II has a number of differences from Super C. For
    digital printers the green sensitivity has been increased, but that only amts
    to about 5 CC on a colorhead, so is insignificant for us. The base is distinctly whiter, which really helps with certain subtle hues. The color
    reproduction in general is superior. Minor differences from the older product but they do add up. Perhaps a little less contrast, but that is easily
    accommodated with masking if needed. I made a range of 20X24 prints
    from Ektar and Provia negs, 6X7, 4X5, and 8X10. My own RGB colorheads are more precise than typical YMC colorheads, so I can make these color distinctions themselves more accurately. So yes, I have a high opinion
    of Type II CA paper. I'll acquire a 30 inch wide roll of the polyester
    base Type II next, once I appropriately mask some favorite 8X10 shots.

    Edge and Endura are very similar apart from Endura being thicker and having the copyright print on the back.

    we find the fuji dp II much more workable than the cut sheet CA. there is also a noticable stippling in the blacks on the CA. we have spoken to fuji about doing the dp II in cut sheet rather than the CA. we have a cutter so it's no fuss for us either way, cut sheet would probably cost more, but it doesn't help if the product they do provide doesn't do a good job.

    in response to the positive comments re: agfa paper, the portrait was good too. it is worth noting that you can still get RA agfa chemistry with has a nice soft tonality to it, saying that we use fuji. it's out there if you want it.

    Thanks Labrynth. So the chemistry can also change the way the print looks?

    Well I found your paper, though I have no idea if it's sold on the underside of the world. Here
    it's called Fuji Crystal Archive Preferred. Thicker paper but otherwise like CAII. Available rolls only.

    Ra4 paper has a tendency to crimp no matter how thick the paper base. Shouldn't color palette, contrast and saturation be the most important criteria when choosing a paper? The best solution might be an inexpensive adhesive mount. The pres-on co. in Chicago makes a number of different substrates to mount to. Even their super-thin one-ply card-stock will protect your print from crimping due to careless handling in addition to satisfying your desire for a sumptuously thick paper stock.

    I haven't tried it but Kodak Royal is supposed to have a thicker base and should be available in Australia (albeit probably with limited surfaces/sizes).
