    Comments about Bergger Prestige Variable CB Warmtone Baryta Paper (Glossy, 20 x 24", 25 Sheets):

    I shoot 8X10 in studio and this is the only paper I print on. This is coming from someone that's tried every paper under the sun. It's predictable and the results are trully spectacular . It has more silver than other papers and it is thicker than the rest. The reason I shop solely at B&H is because they carry this paper. I use ilford multigrade developer or amidol when printing. I'm able to attain a full tonal scale. I receive compliments constantly and one curator stated "its thick like antique photographs". If quality is what your after , then this is your paper. Sure it cost alot, but you get what you pay for. .........

    Somewhat disappointed

    Comments about Bergger Prestige Variable CB Warmtone Baryta Paper (Glossy, 20 x 24", 25 Sheets):

    This paper is wonderful.[...] When i went to the darkroom to open the paper from the appropriate side the adhesive was completely stuck and I basically had to tear the entire box apart. I am very angry that I had to go through the trouble of getting electric tape and taping the whole box so that my paper wouldn't get ruined. This is the reason why I did not give it 5 stars. Aside from that it's a wonderful paper and I would buy it again.

    By Chris

    from Boston, MA

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    Cons

    • Expensive
    • Slow ISO

    Best Uses

    • Printing landscapes

    Comments about Bergger Prestige Variable CB Warmtone Baryta Paper (Glossy, 20 x 24", 25 Sheets):

    I've spent the last year searching for a solid warm-tone paper to use in my work. I shoot all of my black-and-white landscapes on Ilford FP4 developed in PMK Pyro, which extends the tonal range of the highlights. I wanted a paper that would complement that with its own rich tonality, particularly within the darker values. This paper does it, and it lacks the sometimes distracting color caste of similar warm-tone papers. Its main downfall is its cost, but I find I haven't regretted spending the extra cash on this. It also, like other warm-tone papers, has a very slow ISO, which means the aperture on the enlarger needs to be pretty open, and the exposure time will still be rather long. This can be compensated for in the negative.
