    My head is spinning.

    Could one of you kind souls point me to a thicker, more contrasty 8x10 cut sheet RA4 paper that can be acquired here in the USA. This Fuji CA I got from B&H is pathetically thin and dull (low contrast)

    PS, there is probably money to be made by a meticulous person willing to cut Kodak endura roll paper into standard sized sheets as a service - i bet.

    They'd get my money if they were in the UK.

    I believe there is at least one eBay seller doing this -- though he's not very open about exactly what he's doing. So his meticulousness is in question. He did invite me to call him (I didn't). See this thread:
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum40/1...lor-paper.html

    ETA: Current listing:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=180946364708

    He's since added "stored properly" to the item description; I don't remember seeing that before. His phone number is in the listing also.

    One problem with color enlarging papers, most any paper actually, is that rarely are expiration dates or use-by dates provided by a manufacturer. I'm using 10 or 12 year old paper I've had in my darkroom, not properly stored in cool conditions, that has a light gray fog. It's useful for some testing, but not for finished prints. I wouldn't buy old paper stored like this even for testing. I am only using it because it is already on hand.

    Buying any paper cut down and repackaged from large rolls would concern me if the seller would not disclose how old it was or under what conditions it was cut and packaged. I want assurance of fresh, recently coated paper, cut to smaller size and repackaged in total darkness. Some people are comfortable using a safelight with color paper, such as a Kodak #13 filter with 7.5 watt bulb no closer than 4 feet away, but I am not one of them. I would not buy a color RA-4 paper that was cut and repackaged under a safelight.
