    Fujifilm Tone contact paper is one of their oldest products from 1930s, although I'm sure the emulsion itself has been reformulated many times. There is no chance Fujifilm would have bought someone else's emulsion for this product.

    RC
    Matte surface
    Why even try it?

    Where can we find more information on Fuji contact printing paper? How can we get some here in the USA?

    Because for commercial contact printing of long roll aerial film, RC is the preferred choice?

    first, if you are going to make a contact paper, why make RC. anyone that is serious about contact printing isn't going to use RC. That's like when I asked the local camera store why they don't carry FB paper they told me "no one uses FB paper anymore. Am I out of the loop to think that any professional like Smith, Chamlee, etc. would go to RC paper because it is a chloride printing paper. So why make something that most contact printers would never use. and If they have the tech. to do it why not SW FB paper and do it right? i won't waste my money on it.




    c. would use RC to make there print with RC if thet

    I believe it's not aimed at the art market. Don't know what it's for, but not us.

    Much of contact printing papers is used for aerial photography, and other technical researches and industrial applications.

    B&W fine art market is a VERY tiny portion of photographic industry today. I made a presentation of current market analysis at a regional APUG meeting two months ago but the market is REALLY TINY. Contact printing paper for fine art photography is a TINY portion of the tiny market.

    boy that makes me feel really tiny. but lugging a 8x20 camera isn't tiny, guess it's MAS or nothing in the contact arena. unless RC isn't a problem with most.
