    Comments about Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe MGD.44M Black & White Variable Contrast Paper (5 x 7", Pearl, 100 Sheets):

    I've been printing for forty years, and Ilford's MG IV is my standard RC paper. It is consistent and dependable, with appealing tonality. I do all my proofing and general printing on this paper, though the very best images get printed on Ilford's fiber-based papers.

      I've decided to stick with ilford. It's consistent and I haven't run into any major problems. It does get pricy as I start to print larger, but it's worth it. Not saying I wouldn't take the winnings though...

        As black and white papers become scarcer, it's nice to have Ilford's quality RC paper available in my favorite pearl surface. The 5x7 size is good for both initial prints to evaluate if a negative is worth making into a "serious" final print, and for giving away as thank-yous to subjects.

          i usually work with fiber-glossy finished photo paper but i wanted to make many amounts of prints for reference. i read about resin coated pearl paper and i must say the finish is very good. i am still able to do my split filtering printing and get pretty good contrast. the blacks get very deep (which is my preference) and the whites are easy to work with. i am satisfied with the product. this product is a great option for my work prints.

                I took a black and white chemical photography class this semester and used this paper for all of my enlarged prints. Fine grain, good contrast, and the pearl finish is a great compromise between matte and glossy.

                  I am an casual photographer and have used this paper many times. I think it is a great RC paper overall and will continue to use it. I like the finish of the paper, its durability and the tones it produces. I would recommend this to anyone.

                                Ilford paper is by far my favorite. My only complaint is that I should have bought a larger box because I ran out half way through my project! I didn't realize how many negatives I had to work with, but the consistanecy in the print quality is amazing.
