As someone that has been selling "AZO prints" for several years now, I can tell you that when I was first selling prints on Ebay for super low prices, a lot of people were buying just to see what an AZO print looks like and its image characteristics. Now, printing on AZO is just part of the process of my image making and I'm selling to more serious photography collectors. Luckily, I have enough AZO to last until Lodima paper becomes available.
When Lodima paper becomes available, I think it will sound quite funny calling them "Lodima prints", so the term "Silver Chloride print" is more appropriate. Actually, that is what "AZO prints" should be called now. When Lodima paper becomes available, I'm planning on purchasing a good quantity to last me for many years to come, just in case it does not stay in production for along time, but I'm not expecting that. As long as Lodima paper is in production, I will continue to purchase it has necessary to keep my supply on hand to a decent size.
If Lodima paper were to not become available, I would simply find another paper available. Preferable single weight and graded.
In today’s world, it's the final image that is most important, and not really all about the process. Of course the process plays an important roll in creating the final image, but it's the artists vision that people are more interested in seeing rather than a brand of paper.
