Foma 11 x 14" Fomaspeed Variant III VC RC Paper is a pack of 25 sheets of neutral-tone, medium-weight, variable contrast black & white paper on a pure white, resin coated base.

Fomaspeed is made using silver chlorobromide emulsion that gives a silver image tone shading from neutral to mildly warm. The paper features a very rich halftone scale from a shining white to a saturated black.

This paper features short exposure and developing times, due to the built in developing substances in the emulsion to ensure fast and consistent results
Its high speed enables to use large lens diaphragm values even at enlarging on large sheet sizes
Nice cold to warm image tone. Very good gray tonalities in the range of skin tones
A very uncomplicated portrait-photography paper. Easy to process and easy to dry
Quality black & white paper manufactured in the Czech Republic and available for the first time in U.S. sizes
Process Type Fomaspeed can be processed with usual developers by hand in trays or in developing machines that are suitable for the papers on fiber base. The resulting image tone can be influenced using various types of developers. For a neutral image tone the Fomatol LQN or Fomatol P developers are recommended. Other developers are also recommended such as Polymax (Kodak), Variospeed (Tetenal), PQ Universal (Ilford) or Dektol (Kodak).
Base Type Resin coated base
Tone Neutral-tone, on a pure white base
Weight Medium weight
Contrast Variable contrast, multi-grade (0-5).
Surface Finish Matte surface
Safelight Compatibility Fomaspeed Variant III is a material with orthochromatic sensitizing and therefore suitable safelights shall be used. Dark red filter for orthochromatic materials (such as Kodak 1, Ilford 906) and a 15 W bulb are quite suitable. The paper should be exposed to the safelight only for a necessary short time.

    Comments about Fomaspeed Variant III VC RC Paper (11x14", 25 Sheets):

    I use this paper to create custom prints for clients by using Marshall's Photo oil paints. This paper is the best brand to use when tinting because it doesn't streak or smear and allows for great results. My only concern is that others are no longer working in the sacred darkroom and moving to the computer where the paper will no longer be able to be found.
