    fuji or kodak?

    Hi I shot a mix of landscapes and portraits on fujifilm PRO 160S colour negative film,

    I'm going to start printing myself for the first time and I'm wondering if there is any issue by using KODAK supra endura paper range? or is it better to stick to FUJI cristal paper?

    any experience out there?

    Cheers

    Well, the big issue is that Supra Endura is [EDIT: may be not discontinued].

    In the UK, Fuji CA is going to be cut into sheets by a 3rd party (it's currently available only as a roll).

    Kodak make another RA4 paper: Ektacolor Edge, it's a budget paper, a little thinner than Endura, but it prints on about the same filter pack as Endura.

    It may be discontinued in the UK but it is not discontinued alltogether.
    Supra Endura is still available in sheets and most surfaces except E.

    You can process the Kodak at lower temperature I believe.

    I print on both at a rental color lab and they aren't that different. Seems to me that the Kodak is a little more natural looking and a little less contrasty. It also seems to me that the Fuji is a little more touchy in the filter pack. It also seems to me that the Kodak paper base goes warm with age more quickly than the Fuji. It is mostly what ever you are used to so get which ever is most available.

    How come do they list it under "Discontinued Papers / Reference" here then?

    Please read again, it is discontinued in rolls, not sheets.

    That is how I understood the situation.

    Ok, this seems quite complicated. I just had a look and the following is from tech pub E4021:

    Product Discontinuance
    KODAK PROFESSIONAL SUPRA ENDURA Paper in roll formats
    will be discontinued by year end 2009 or when stock is depleted.
    Sheets continue to be available. KODAK PROFESSIONAL SUPRA
    ENDURA VC Digital Paper is the alternative replacement. KODAK
    PROFESSIONAL PORTRA ENDURA Paper was discontinued in late
    2006.
    So, they made a replacement for Supra Endura, optimised for digital printing, but it will still be coated just for sheets? Am I the only one who finds it strange?
