    Cool, someone took me up on my offer. Will report back when I've had a chance to test it, hopefully next weekend.

    Let's hope they come out soon with what we really want - Grade 3.

    I recently tested this paper and I must say it is superb. If it is indeed a pure silver chloride emulsion then it is quite fast, certainly when compared to Lodima which is also a wonderful paper. The grade 2 (special) is quite hard in my opinion and compares favourably with Lodima grade 3.

    Here in the UK it should be available from Silverprint real soon

    That's good news. I'm with Jim and would prefer a grade 3. I target most of my negs to grade 3 silver chloride so that they print on G2 enlarging paper (or so) and are not overly dense for scanning.

    What developer did you use, Tevor? And how was the color?

    Shawn, I developed it in Ilford/Harmen WT diluted 1:9 which gave me a very pleasing warmth.

    Interesting. I've been loading up my amidol with extra KBr in order to warm up Lodima. I've found it is one of the most lovely colors I've been able to achieve with any paper. Maybe it will have the same effect on this Foma.... my somewhat limited experience with Azo has show it does no warm up much with the same formula... of course my Azo is vintage so that might have something to do with it. Thanks, Trevor.

    The speed is a real problem for me with Lodima. Some of my negatives print absolutely black in 3-5 seconds whereas they take 15-25 seconds on Azo. Trevor, were the negatives you printed developed in a staining developer such as Pyrocat?

    Jim,
    what bulb are you using? why don't you just use a lower wattage? Raise the bulb? Diffuse it?
