    There are 3 antifoggants for color paper that handle fog layerwise.

    The antifoggant for the cyan layer is phenyl mercapto tetrazole used at 1 - 2 mg / liter of developer. IDK if it works on Fuji paper.

    Can you persuade your local lab to cut you a piece of its fresh Fuji paper under safe conditions. Use this and if the cast disappears then you've solved the problem. If you bought your paper new from a reputable supplier then contact it. You'd have the evidence of flawed paper of non merchandisable quality and should get fresh paper as a result.

    I don't doubt there were changes, our initial test prints with CA II were all over the place, but how is it that we didn't get new chemistry, or instructions to drain the old stuff and remix reformulated new stuff at the same time?

    IDK. You will have to ask Fuji! Sorry, but that was the report. Some people have even said there is no such thing as CA II.

    The 5L working solutions "Print X Press 4 Kit" has been discontinued last summer.


    Here in Europe several other small RA-4 kits ranging from 1L to 5L work.sol. are available.

    I can indeed confirm there is CA II, our boxes come labeled as such.

    Some people reported that they had to use a nearly zero or cyan filter pack with it and others report fog of varying types with Kodak chemistry. There are posts here to that effect.

If it is still green, it may be the tint of the paper, but if it is white, then the problem is either fog or the developer. If so, I suggest you change to the latest Fuji Hunt kit and process recomendations.

    Fuji lists under #4 processing that CAII can be processed in the RA-4 process.

    PE I take it that that such antifoggants aren't generally available unlike say benzotriazole for B&W fogged paper so in reality fogged RA4 paper is throw-away paper?

    My first thought is that it would be nice if such antifoggants were available but maybe even if they were then the effort of diagnosing which layer was fogged and the cost of the antifoggant might make it more trouble than it is worth?

    I just don't know. Your indulgence is craved. I am UK based to probably complicate things.

    Thanks

    I am merely reporting what Fuji presented at the conference. They did indicate that by changing times (shortening them severely IIRC), usable results could be obtained. I suggest that in spite of what they say in several different places, we consider that there may be some problem, or may have been some problem due to the number of complaints about it at the time, and the comment above about "wandering results".

    So, in spite of what any manufacturer says, I have to factor into things what is going on in the real world.
