    It was recommended by a teacher for a photo class my girlfriend was taking at college, and I was able to come to B&H to purchase it, because the teacher recommended this store, even though I had to travel in from Long Island. When I saw the art she created using this photo paper, I knew it was a good product that only enhanced the art she created.
    It is a strong quality paper that can handle the rigors of repeated use as well as being subjected to mixed media after it has been used for its initial photographic purpose.
    I'd buy it again.

    Not a bad paper... feels good in the hand, yet lacks proper contrast.. If you just need to get an immediate print then this will do, but I wouldn't suggest for the more meticulous type like myself.

    Great paper

    By Tim

    from Horsham, PA

    Comments about Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe MGD.44M Black & White Variable Contrast Paper (8 x 10", Pearl, 25 Sheets):

    This paper is a delight to process and produces great prints. With the pearl finish, my only wish is that there was some printing on the back because it is somewhat tough to feel which side is the emulsion side. I stored it so that I always know now, but my first print was exposed from the back. Interesting result! It's true to its description that it is on the cool to neutral side. I use a drying agent and once dry the results are beautiful prints that I feel confident will last a long time. I have also used some contrast filters on the enlarger and got the exact result I wanted. Highly recommend.

      I use this mainly for my contact sheets, and use the 5X7 for my proof prints. The tonal quality is nice, as well the over all feel of the paper. Works well with the Sprint development system.

          I use this product for my day-to-day printing, usually for making initial prints or give-aways. It's an excellent paper. The pearl finish is a nice balance of sheet and matte that is easy to work with and present. Responsiveness in the higher range of contrast filters is modal.

          I took a B&W photo class this semester and used a TON of this paper. It was worth the price and the results I got were wonderful. The good: Excellent contrast, worth the price, dries fast clean and doesn't curl too badlyThe bad: don't let it get hot (like in a car) It will buckle and be a nightmare to position correctly in an easel!

                                Great paper, simple to use, perfect for students. Gives a good range of tones, especially with filters. Easy to tell which side is the resin side, which is a bonus.

                                  I haven't used this product a ton, but so far I love it. It's easy to use and develops quickly. The quality of the paper is great and it produces excellent images with a wide range of tones.

                                    Even though the paper was fine, the box was in horrible condition. I was almost sure my paper was going to come out bent.

                                        Not a bad paper... feels good in the hand, yet lacks proper contrast.. If you just need to get an immediate print then this will do, but I wouldn't suggest for the more meticulous type like myself.

                                          It was recommended by a teacher for a photo class my girlfriend was taking at college, and I was able to come to B&H to purchase it, because the teacher recommended this store, even though I had to travel in from Long Island. When I saw the art she created using this photo paper, I knew it was a good product that only enhanced the art she created.
                                          It is a strong quality paper that can handle the rigors of repeated use as well as being subjected to mixed media after it has been used for its initial photographic purpose.
                                          I'd buy it again.
