          Years ago when my job was working in a darkroom, my choice for paper was always Ilford. Same for film but I digress. Purchased this paper with glossy finish as opposed to pear as my main intent for this paper was for pinhole cameras.If you are using this for paper negatives please keep in mind that your range of tone is usually going to be on the very high and very low range only. Not a lot of mid-range tones unless you fashion a filter to go over your lens, which will increase your exposure time.As a side note I've found that the best ISO film speed equivalent is to us ISO 6 when calculating exposure when used as paper negative.

                  I like this paper! it is the first I print on and it develops itself like a charm, even in Kodak Dektol! Superb pictures... with almost no need for thermometer! I had no problem using it at room temperature and got some nice results! I don't think I would buy something else than from Ilford!

                        I use Ilford paper anytime I'm making a print, but I also wanted to get some to shoot on with my view camera. (To make the development process quicker and easier) I love Ilford products, and I love this paper.

                        Great for enlarging or using in pinhole cameras, or in my case 5x7 view cameras.

                                    I work in my black & white darkroom a few hours a week. Many of the negs I print are old negs with softer contrast. This paper brings up the contrast level where I need it to be. I get really nice looking prints using this paper. I will be buying a LOT more of this grade. Nice stuff.
