I have about one season of Ciba supplies left, but don't know when I'll get to it. Even if I could go back, I wouldn't. A beautiful medium, but very expensive and now basically superseded quality-wise,
in terms of both permanence and color reproduction characteristics. RA4 chem bothers me more, because one could almost instantly neutralize Ciba bleach. Extremely small amts of RA4 bother me,
so if there's a deal-breaker that would be it. But oh, those true darkroom prints can sure look way more
convincing that the alternatives. Color neg printing no longer needs to be that bland stepchild it once
was, suitable only for low-key subjects like portraiture or "artsy" off-color things. It's really grown up.
