    The Kodak instructions say 0:45 (drum) to 1:00 (less agitation) will give you complete development...

    Yikes! No wonder why you think the new "digitally optimized" papers are essentially the same as the pre-digital versions.

    What kind of RA-4 paper and chemicals would you recommend

    Well if it's a way to make them look like the older ones, why not? Nit so long as to be a real inconvenience.

    So long as you're making crappy looking c-prints with a technique that precludes the possibility of fine color adjustment, then you're right - it makes no difference what paper you're using.

    Look, you wise guys ... the reason for a 2 min dev time is so that the fill and drain time of the drum won't be such a factor as to make repeatability a nightmare (which 1 min dev will). And when I state
    that some of these papers are only a tiny tweak different than the previous version, I mean it! Fuji will
    tell you exactly the same thing if you bother to read the fine print and not just the marketing sheet.
    I recalibrated from Super C to CAII with only about a 5cc change. Most of you can't even control your
    colorheads within that amount of consistency. "Complete development" is related to time/temp, and
    you have more than one potential option. There again, if you don't believe me, you can find that official
    info from the respective chem mfgs. But I don't really care, because I've done thorough testing myself.
    And once one of you learns to control color within vaguely 50% of the level my skills and equipment
    can do it, I might listen to your comments. But you obviously haven't done your homework yet!
