    fast-bromide paper recommendations

    On my Ethol LPD developer can the directions say for colder tones use a fast-bromide paper. What are some good FB fast-bromide papers. Is Kentmere a fast bromide?
    I have a negative that I want to print with a cold blue black tone.

    I believe the world's only bromide paper in existence is Slavich Unibrom. A wonderful paper, with a beautiful look and feel.

    That's good to know...but isn't Kentmere also a bromide paper? That is what they say at Freestyle.

    I believe the straight Bromide paper (Kentmere Bromide) is no longer made. The other papers are (I think) chloro-bromide, like Ilford MGIV.

    I have some fujibro paper in the basement, used up the 8x10, and have a little of the 5x7 left. It is a bromide paper that fuji still makes. Might be a bit harder to source though.

    Yes, but it's a beautiful paper in that surface. I've used it extensively in the past. And I currently still have some Slavich Unibrom in three grades. But my all time favorite was the original Zone VI Brilliant. An amazing paper...

    I'm a big fan of bromide papers.
