    I originally ordered this particular paper because it was what the teacher for my photography course requires that we ordered. After using it for a few months, I realized that it is the best choice for general use in printing black and white. I like that the pearl is a great balance between glossy and matte, both of which seem to distort the image some with reflection or lack of. It has also been the most economical choice for me.

    Ok Paper

    This paper is not quite what i thought it would be but it is ok. I think i would prefer more of a glossy paper for the finish that i am looking for.

      Comparing to the Matte and glossy paper. Pearl is by far my favorite. This paper gives you a perfect looking finish. Blacks never get crushed and whites are always pure white. I recommend this over any other paper for RC!!

            This product is awesome! as a student i need light sensitive paper in the darkroom. I have never had any problems with the paper what so ever. The one thing i wish they would do is write and iso or asa on the box to help people learning when making paper negatives. By the way the ISO or ASA for this paper is around 3.
            It may not be as archival as fiber paper but its great to start off with.

              This photo paper was packaged extremely well and was not in the slightest bit exposed. The shipping for this site is great. I received it 2 days after it was ordered. The paper prints deep blacks and bright whites. Excellent product.

                I'm a new film photographer and have my experience in digital. My professor recommended this paper and I see why. In comparison to sheets other students brought in, you could just tell which is odd more substance. I do not like the pearl finish; I feel as if it runs the projection of the image. The gloss is a 100 percent better but this is personal preference.

                I use this paper strictly for making contact sheets of 35mm rolls of film. The quality is consistent and it serves it's purpose well for a good price.

                  There aren't too many high-quality RC papers around these days, and Ilford makes the best for my purposes. I use this paper for my work prints, before I commit myself to making exhibition prints on fiber paper. The paper has always been consistent and reliable and -- most important -- is always available at B&H.

                      I am taking a black and white photography class, and purchased this paper to use for everything from standard photo developing to creating both positive and negative photograms. It has performed very well for all my uses up to this point, and I anticipate it continuing to do so in the future. I especially enjoy the "pearl" finish to the paper. It is not overly glossy, but a subtle step up from a flat matte. I will definitely use this again.

                                    I use this product for my intro to black and white photography. Thus far, it has been great paper and I love the way my images turn out on it. It's also well worth the price. But since being a college student, I have to buy in smaller increments.
