      Comments about Ilford Multigrade FB Classic Gloss Variable Contrast Paper (8 x 10", 100 Sheets):

      This paper will metamorphose your existence. Think I'm joking? You may not understand the splendor of fiber base paper presently, but you will, oh you will. Yes it is expensive. Yes you have to keep reminding yourself to keep the magic away from light until the proper time. Yes it is not in fact an eternal supply and you will have to invest in more. But is it worth it? Absolutely.

      The allure of this Multigrade FB Classic Gloss Variable Contrast Paper is not in the exorbitant price tag which seems to imply a decadence known only by those who partied with Jay Gatsby, but within the promise of recollection. The beauty of film photography is the pure distillation of a moment. Even more so than digital photography because once you take a photograph on film it hangs suspended in time until it's development. This Multigrade FB Classic Gloss Variable Contrast Paper is the vehicle by which these suspended moments are brought into reality. It is an essential component in documenting the world we live in. Buy the paper. Your photographs will thank you, not literally of course my dear friend, but in an esoteric way that only someone truly bonded to their work can understand. So my fellow man, go out into the world bold to take life by the horns, then pause to find the humility to step back and say "I will save this moment and share it with mankind". And by buying this paper you will know that you have the premier tools to accomplish this indispensable feat.

                I typically use warm-tone papers, but have started a project that I want a more neutral look for. I never really cared for Ilford's previous neutral-tone paper, so I thought I'd give the reformulated "Classic" emulsion a chance. I'm pretty impressed overall. It has nice, rich blacks and a solid tonal range. I've used it in Dektol and found it to be quite versatile.

                            I use the fiber-based paper for everything except my contact sheets. All of my photo materials are from Ilford, they are the way to go. My only issue, which is more an issue of analog photography than it is of the product, is that I have to buy so much so often!

                            I am very pleased with this purchase. The paper has a great finish to it, and can handle a good amount of time under the safelights with out fogging. Ilford always leaves me impressed.

                                I normally abhor glossy paper, but when it comes to fiber based paper glossy is all I'll ever use. In the past I've shied away from more expensive papers, but I'm glad I splurged on Illford.
