that said, i believe half of what i see, and none of what i hear, even if i am the one saying it.
I am aware of those claims. I also remember all the other times they turned out not to be true, too.
I trust Kodak not at all. Their outrageous history in this area is available for everyone to read.
Wilhelm, I have a lot of confidence in. BUT, his tests are limited. They do not take everything into consideration. They can't.

RC papers are no good. Don't use them for serious work. They are also visually inferior, but most people can't see it.
