    Lets see those results! I'm rather fond of paper negatives!
    My personal paper of choice is Ilford RC @ asa6.
    I have never used the Arista paper, and am just now starting to test the Arista EDU 4x5.
    Good luck with the paper negs!

    I think this was my best shot. I used a Toyo camera and Arista Fiber paper rated at ISO 20, then just developed by inspection.

    For a first go, that's actually pretty good.

    Thank you. Technically my second go but I disregard my first attempt which is what sparked this thread - haha. I blame it on the camera I was using. The shot I posted was taken with a much better 4x5.

    Temperature of developer and very fresh developer could be a problem for paper negs. If temp was right but it was fresh developer, that could work too fast too. If you have three film holder, take a light reading, expose it at that, on the second shot, make it the same exposure, on the next set, cut the exposure in half, do that again, and again. Keep notes as to which one film holder has which exposures in it. Develop one at the correct time/temp; change developing time based on that. It's worth a shot - and paper isn't as expensive as film.
