Product Highlights
  • Superior Sharpness
  • Excellent Tonal Separation

Kentmere 8x10" Fineprint VC B&W FB Paper is a double-weight, fiber-base variable contrast, neutral tone paper using Kentmere's unique bromo-iodide technology. This Kentmere paper produces smooth tonal gradations and excellent detail

Cool rich blacks, crisp bright whites and exceptional mid-tone detail characterize Fineprint VC Glossy and Finegrain
Kentmere's unique bromo-iodide technology, with its special construction, offers superior sharpness with separation in even the finest detail
Compatible with Ilford MG filters grades 00-5
Surfaces respond superbly to many toning techniques allowing further manipulation of tone and contrast
Available in Glossy and Finegrain (textured semi-matte) surfaces
Process Type Black and white chemistry
Base Type Fiber based
Tone Cool rich blacks, crisp bright whites and exceptional mid-tone detail
Weight Double weight, The paper is 240 g/m2 coated on the front side with 36g/m2 of baryta giving a base weight of approximately 276 g/m2, and a thickness of approximately 260 µm
Contrast Variable, Contrast as a range approximately equivalent to grades 00 to 5 is achievable from the Fineprint range by means of contrast filters used in the enlarger. Proprietary filter sets such as Ilford Multigrade or Kodak Polymax are suitable.
Surface Finish Glossy, The traditional unglazed glossy surface is particularly suited to portrait, landscape and exhibition work. A very high gloss can be achieved by standard glazing techniques.
Safelight Compatibility Fineprint range papers have an orthochromatic emulsion, that requires a dark orange/brown or red safelight to be used. Box/lantern type safelights using glass filters should only be used with a 15 W bulb or less and should be positioned at least 1 meter from the paper. Filters which are suitable for use with VC Select are: Kodak OC or 1A, and Ilford 902

                          I use this paper to print photographs prior to printing them on larger paper.

                          The available papers are fewer and fewer. I prefer this paper to any of the Ilford products because it can be toned. The blacks are true as are the whites.
                          The middle tones are good.

                          It is unfortunate that so many of the wonderful papers formerly available are no longer around, so Kentmere is a good compromise.

                                this paper is the best i've used so far. i used to use RC paper but VC fiber paper is way nicer and your prints last longer.

                                        Buy the 100 pack of paper for a better price than the 25 pack. Great value for a beginning darkroom experience.

                                        Works great, and nicely packaged. Buying paper always hurts wallet-wise, and this is a good brand.

                                          I used this product to contact print from 8x10 negatives. It handled well giving good blacks and a nice range of tones. I also selenium toned after developing and it had almost no colour change but the image density increased slightly.

                                              I am finishing my second box of this paper, and the quality is very good. The glossy finish creates beautiful contrast and the paper does not look too shiny (like the glossy RC paper for example).
