    Maybe you can but I certainly cannot make a decent contact print on enlarging paper. This Fomalux paper is...well, I really appreciate it. It is so much easier to work with. I am very, very pleased to have it available.

    Phototone,

    You are correct. I was looking for any paper to make contact prints and a friend suggested Emacs as a place to start. I was going through the paper options at Freestyle and stumbled on the contact option of 312. I was honestly surprised as I didnt know there was a contact paper option outside of old hoards of Azo or the new paper of Lodima, which I didnt order and may get scraps of what someone decided not to purchase.

    I'm fairly new to contact printing, is there a paper you like as I am in "try 'em" mode.

    Thanks,

    ./e

    Is it worth it!!!!! RC and Matt. the tow things you don't want. I havn't got my Lodima 8x20 and have a show in 3 months adn I need to reprint many of my 8x20 negs but I was hoping for the paper by Oct now it isn't coming till Feb. maybe, so I'm needing a contact paper but this paper is not even close to what could be used a good paper for displaying your work for sale.

    Michael,

    I have used Emaks graded and Foma Fomatone MG Classic for some of my 8 x 20 and 5 x 7 contact prints. The Emaks is neutral/warm and Fomatone warm, but looks great depending on the look you are after.

    It occurred to me to look for sites in Spanish mentioning this paper, and I found this:

    http://www.corporaciondeoriente.com.mx/papelbn.html

    They describe Fomalux as "made especially for Corporacion de Oriente", so I guess they are the Mexican market driving the production of the paper. I just glanced very briefly around the site, but it looks like they're basically a wholesaler to photo processors. I don't know why processors in Mexico would have a particular need for a contact paper, but I must say I'm glad that they apparently do...

    Apparently no one has mentioned this yet, but I just mixed up some 1:9 RST out of an old bottle and threw a 312 print in. In 3 minutes I had rich chocolate tones. Didn't quite expect that, but I like it!

    " it is an RC paper - not FB. I loath working with fiber based paper."

    You will find there are no serious fine B&W printers who work with RC papers.
