    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.

      This paper is perfect for a darkroom beginner. It dries quickly, has consistent results, and isn't too shiny under light. I would recommend this for any beginner like me.

      Great quality, prefer gloss finish

      By al

      from NYC

      Comments about Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe MGD.44M Black & White Variable Contrast Paper (8 x 10", Pearl, 50 Sheets):

      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 bought this paper when I needed new paper for my basic photography class. The paper is excellent quality; it handles chemicals well and the image quality is superb. My only complaint is that the paper was 8x10 and not 8x11, but that's my own fault. Great paper!
