    Yes, you can. RC paper works best. Thinner is better if you plan to contact print the paper negatives.

    BTW, Ilford MGIV or indeed any paper can be reversal processed to give some very nice reversal prints or paper positives in-camera. In this case, you do lose a lot of speed though. You don't need a special reversal paper.

    I assume you mean to refer to my post.

    It is well known that all B&W films can be processed to give reversal images with a special kit made by Kodak and a number of other companies. It is less well known that the same process will work with paper, but with a loss in speed and a need to tweak the developers a tad to get the right contrast.

    There are several threads devoted to this on APUG.

    Ooooohhhhh, very interesting. Too bad you lose speed...I don't know how much more speed I can stand to lose.

    My shooting this morning went very good. I have many excellent examples of negatives. This discussion caused me to re-evaluate my shooting exposures and development combo, and I think I am getting a better handle on the ability to control contrast via exposure/development with the paper negative.

    I have learned a lot in this thread. Thanks to all who have contributed.
