    Yep. It's Fuji CA Type II. It's nice that they sell it in affordable 50-sheet boxes

    I don't know for a fact that it is CAII, but all my testing points to it. I have been using a variety of papers - ebay-purchased Kodak Supra Endura cut from rolls, Fuji CA Type II, leftover Fuji CA Type C, and the Arista stuff - and the Arista and CA Type II look exactly the same. Same blacks, same contrast, seemingly same paper weight, and almost identical filtration.

    Compared to the papers I use and my old prints (on Kodak Porta Endura, Supra, and Ultra; and Fuji Type-P) there is no distinguishing between the Arista and the Type II.

    I might sound nitpicky, but I've got a good reason. I assume it has the Fuji imprint on the back. My main concern would be that it's not leftover Super C paper - which was fine stuff in its own right,
    but not quite a good per color rendition as CAII, which also happens to be slightly thinner, and has
    a little cleaner white base to it. Guess I'll have to try some. Be nice if they had 30x40 boxes again, but I assume I'll just have to cut from rolls, and only use Arista for the small sizes.
