    Mr Callow,

    When you printed B&W images on this type of material could you print with regular B&W negatives or did they have to be printed from film like Ilford XP2 or Kodak BCN?

    I've done quite a bit of printing with this paper for various customers, and it really does have a very unique look and feel to it.
    The images that look best seem to be ones that have metallic tones and colours to it. For instance, gold, silver watches, and other jewllery, some of the older cars with lots of chrome and metallic paint look great also. I have a shot of mine that is a late '40s Buick with a deep burgundy paint job, gobs of shiny chrome, on green grass with a pure azure blue sky in the background and it looks fabulous on this paper.
    What doesn't look so good, are subjects with a lot of whites and near white shades, as the base is not as white as regular photo paper. Side by side with regular unexposed paper this is very obvious.
    It processes very well through standard RA4 chem.
    We only buy it in rolls, and Kodak has been having some supply issues lately, I don't know why though, they say that they are going to continue supplying
    this product. I have no idea what the availibility of it in sheets.
    We use a Durst Lambda (uses lasers to expose onto photo paper from a digital file) only for exposing the material, no opitical enlargers left (sniff, sniff).
