Lately I've been printing with a bunch of different kodak emulsions - outdated (late 2011) but frozen supra endura, supra endura vc, supra premiere, edge and royal. Edge and Royal are the exact same emulsion except that royal has backprint and a thicker base. Both edge and royal are useable but they actually have weaker contrast than all the other kodak offerings listed above due to the fact that they produce a very weak black. The pro papers look a hundred times better. Too bad the premiere is so damn contrasty...
