    What is the main difference (if any) between Type II and Type DP II?

    If you are talking about the roll on b&h web site, I bought it. I too could not resist a bargain. It produces nice rich colors. The wrapping of the roll I got was a bit damaged by shipping, so it has a touch of fogging on the edge in one spot of the roll. Otherwise, no age-induced fogging and no yellowing. Great paper. While old, it prints much better than the newer Supra Endura that I have which does show quite a bit of fogging from its age. YMMV.

    Thanks, it is indeed a bargain.

    I've printed optically onto Type II paper with no problems at all. I would suggest as Photo Engineer did, to look into your chemistry.

    That's great to know, Jeff. Did you use regular RA4RT chemistry? Kodak?

    From the Fuji tech. sheet: "This paper is designed for use with FUJICOLOR Paper Process CP-40FA, CP-43FA, CP-47L, CP-48S, and CP-49E, or RA-4 type processes." You may want to see if you can get one of the other processes and if it gives better results.

    A quick checked turned that up in 11x14 only. I think I'll drop them a line and ask a) if it's in date (listing doesn't say) and b) if they will do other sizes. If I can get 8x10 and 11x14 I'm good. I occasionally like to print 5x7 but I can cut down a sheet of 8x10 now and then, or use my old multiprint easel that does two 5x7s or other combinations on one sheet of 8x10. 16x20 would be nice but I don't even have an easel that size right now.

    Who has cut Endura? How much? No shipping of an RA-4 paper from Henrys yet, still thinking about that old Ektacolor roll at B&H.

    Search eBay for "Kodak Endura Supra" and you'll turn it up in 11x15 F and N surface.

    I haven't asked the seller about other sizes or expiration date because I'm not ready to buy now, but I wish someone would.

    I found some 8x10 Supra Endura, 4/2009 dated on the bay. I bought a pack, the auction listing says it has more than 10 more packs of it but I want to try a pack first before buying a lot (though there may be none left by the time it gets here to try out). There is some Fuji Type C from another seller but they only have 2 packs. Those are the only sellers (that ship to Canada anyways) that I could find of any color paper so unless I'm using the wrong search parameters the stuff really is scarce!

    The capacity of the 10L Kodak RA-4 kit should be something like 500 8x10 or 1000 4x5" sheets, right? So that 575' foot roll from B&H would perfectly match it for capacity but I could only make small 5x7ish or 5" wide panoramic prints. At least 8x10" is a decent size. Might want to get a roll of the Ektacolor too, it is so darned cheap. I just hope my Kodak 10L kit actually arrives, if not I'll have to get the Tetenal 5L kit or I'll have some color paper packs to stare at...
