              Comments about Bergger VC-NB Neutral-Tone FB/DW 8x10/25 Glossy:

              I've tried the other papers and always come back to Bergger. I'm glad that B&H has this again. It has the blackest blacks and the whitest whites. I also love the tinge of steely blue hints to the blacks you get if you selenium tone the paper (1/20). For truly beautiful B&W prints I don't think there is a finer paper around. I've used it with various developers but have settled on Clayton Ultra Cold though it also looks great with Dektol etc etc.

                This was a great paper. The blacks are deep and beautiful. I just finished a project using a 4 filter, and the contrast is strong while maintaining great detail.

                  High silver content provides rich results, image develops up more rapidly than other fiber based papers.
