    I have used, and like, both papers. I tend to like the Kodak papers better because it is thicker and a bit stiffer. When it comes down to it, if I had to choose one paper it would be Kodak Ultra Endura. Being that color paper is so cheap, I would do a side by side comparison on small paper sizes and then buy some larger.

    Adios,
    Matt

    I haven't printed color in awhile, but when I did I used Fuji crystal archive portrait paper. I didn't have any problem printing on it with Kodak or Fuji negatives.

    About a year ago Kodak whittled down their 5x7 color papers to supra endura f surface. It was recently discontinued so what's on the shelfs is all that's left for kodak 5x7 color papers. I've never seen fuji 5x7.

    I can't compare for you but I've been using Fuji Crystal Archive and Reala and I like the results I'm getting. How fast you go through a box depends on how conservative you are. I'm conservative with my paper but somewhat less so at my school when I'm not paying for it. I've been chewing through a box of 100 sheets for a while. The hard part is establishing base values, that takes a lot of test strips. Once you have that and if you have good exposure you can pretty much make prints without testing them. I find it takes me 3 sheets if I'm finding new base values or 1 if I already know time and values. It depends how perfect you want each.

    For chemistry kodak sells gallon size developer kits and I used paterson universal (film and paper) bleach fix. That made it simple but now I'm going to the same developer with the kodak blix. Film the same but seperate. I don't like kits because blix lasts about twice as long as developer.
