        Comments about Kentmere Select Variable Contrast Resin Coated Paper (8 x 10", Glossy, 25 Sheets):

        It is possible to get excellent results with this paper, at least as good as competing papers from Ilford and Oriental. However, it exposes and develops so quickly that it is a challenge to get consistent results. I'm using it to batch process contact prints, and it is working ok so far.
