    Fomalux

    I am downsizing to a condo so my photo endeavours must downsize too. I will be contact printing exclusively from 5X7 in camera negatives. Has anyone got experience with Fomalux paper?

    I've used it and liked it. I'm a really inexperienced printer so I haven't been able to put it through its paces properly, but most of my gallery images are on Fomalux 312.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    Fomalux is a very good paper. Its about a stop faster than Lodima. Works well with Ansco PF130 and Moersch Separol Soft and HD. Does well with flashing to get some detail in highlights on high contrast negatives; but you probably need a timer such as Bessler Audible which can expose for as short as 1/10 second. I just use a bare bulb for exposure and a 25watt buglight for darkroom ambience.
