    I often needed it when I printed slides.

    Fiber based paper would take longer to process, wash and dry. How would you benefit from using it?

    I never said I would benefit from it. When doing black and white, I never liked RC paper. I liked the feel of fiber paper. It felt like a real print. And it didn't take that much longer as it did with RC. To me, there's nothing like fiber based paper.

    I could just say "tough, there's only RC" but I won't. I can appreciate why people feel that there's something special about fibre but in colour you may find that RA4 is not so inferior. I cannot explain it but with RA4 it never seemed to me to be just B&W RC with colour added.

    Unlike RC B&W where in most cases glossy seems to have the edge, I always found that lustre was the better surface.

    Forget the fact that's it's RC just give it a go with an open mind. You might be surprised
