Drew, I cannot disagree with your methods.

For others, Ektachrome type R or Radiance papers from Kodak were good but not as good as Cibachrome or Neg-Pos.

For those wanting to re-create analog photography, please remember that each product was build using part of the profit from the previous generation and as the plants are torn down, we lose assets. Also, this is a learning process with no valuable textbooks out there for the entire process from B&W to color.
