    My impression is that Freestyle is selling Efke Emaks graded, which is the same paper as J&C Nuance (the grading system might be different, but relatively, it should be the same paper).

    I used Azo exclusively. Then in November, I made the decision to use Polywarmtone exclusively. Obviously the end of paper manufacture is my fault. I'm afraid to choose another. Maybe I'll do salt prints on school notebook paper.

    We could always dream that maybe Ilford might someday produce a silver chloride paper.

    I don't shoot LF and so I have never printed on AZO, but what is the reason that no other company produces a silver chloride paper? With the obvious popularity of AZO I'm suprised that it has been left to MAS to try and come up with a replacement rather than a company that already produces photographic paper.

    Azo was a contact printing paper. Due to its UV sensitivity, it wasn't good for enlarging, as times would be too long with conventional enalrging equipment. Because it occupied a small market niche, the economics of B&W in general, the use of digital technology and the reduced demand for film and paper in today's market, it isn't too attractive as a money maker. tim

    My view is that a slow silver chloride paper makes more sense today than in the past since the slow speed makes it easier to work with in contact printing, and lots of people are going to be making silver prints with digital negatives in the near future, IMHO.

    What I am wondering is this.

    Assume that Kodak gave Ilford the AZO formula and they do a run of Ilford AZO. Should we expect that this paper would have the same characteristics as the AZO paper produced by Kodak? I understand that there is a lot of *art* as well as science in emulsion making.

    Perhaps PE would comment?
