Oh no. I just got 3 boxes of Type 2 from B&H yesterday. I had also been using the C, and found that to be a little lackluster in the colors. Now you're saying Type 2 is flat. Crapola. $150 down the drain. But this doesn't seem plausible. Fuji raves about their new and improved colors and I'm sure they didn't make a drab paper to compete with Kodak. Chem wise I've made home brew RA-4 Developer, and I have used Kodak RA-RT, and found the results to be the same. I also used to use now unavailable FotoSpeed Kits, and they produced brilliant strong colors, which I still have not been able to replicate. All from FCA Type C. So that tells me it's not the paper giving me the drabs. As for the filter pack being crazy different, I guess thats almost to be expected. Also it's disappointing to hear that Type 2 is thinner. Oh the humanity!! I kinda doubt if jumping to Kodak and cutting the clumsy rolls in the dark is necessarily a sure fix, but many have written that Kodak Film, with their paper and their chemistry is the way to go. Still there is no reason Fuji Paper in any RA-4 should be drab. This must not stand.
