    Comments about Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe MGD.44M Black & White Variable Contrast Paper (11 x 14", Pearl, 50 Sheets):

    I use this paper for work prints and, on occasion, for exhibition prints as well. It gives nice results, I prefer the Pearl finish, and there aren't so many papers around anymore. It could be less expensive, but I'm glad that the stuff is still being made.

              I use the paper strictly for black and white darkroom pieces, like it was designed for. This paper is consistant and super smooth. Don't really have anything to complain about! Except that it's draining my bank account.

                I'm a photo student at Western Connecticut State University and I do a lot of film photography. 4 years since I've started my education at Westconn, I only use Ilford paper and I always go with Pearl.
                I can trust Ilford products 100% of the time, and I always prefer Pearl over Glossy. I go through a lot of paper, but no matter how much supplies I need, I always go with Ilford Paper.

                      I used the Multigrade IV RC Deluxe fiber based photographic paper with fine results. As a fiber based paper I worked, for the first time, with color painting my black and white images. Superior paper for a better price than in the stores. Thanks!

                            I do all of my own darkroom printing. I normally use 8x10 but was working on a large project so needed the 11x14. The great thing about Ilford is the consistency of the product. All of my settings were still spot on even with a larger paper. I know others who have had to readjust settings when switching brands, which is why Ilford papers are the only ones I will use.

                                I bought this paper for my Photography class. I like to match brands of film, paper and chemicals because I feel the always turn out better than mixing and matching. The paper displays a full range of tones well and has a relatively good speed for the pace that I work at. Always consistent and sharp as a tack.

                                            I use this paper with 4x5 negatives and 35mm and it looks amazing with both. It has great blacks and whites and it's very smooth. I usually use glossy paper but I will probs use pearl for everything.

                                              Ilford multigrade IV RC DLX has proven to be a great purchase for 11x14/50 black and white prints. The images I've printed including still life and various macro shots have come out really nice. I highly recommend the pearl over the glossy finish when working with black and white.

                                                As a photography teacher at the Children's School of Science in Woods Hole, MA. I have used Ilford pearl surface B&W RC paper for over 20 years and it remains my favorite paper. Our school building is very old and our darkroom facilities are basic and punctuated with holes of light here and there and yet using this quick drying,easy to spot tone, good contrast paper (even without filtration) our students continue to produce excellent photos. The 11 x 14" size is used as a reward for producing a particularly good composition,well exposed and properly developed.In this digital age, our 13-16 year old students continue to love film photography, developing their film and printing B&W images. Your Ilford paper and their talents helped us win 12 first place ribbons at the Barnstable County Fair. Their student work looked better than the adult photos in the exhibit!!I am so glad to still have your paper available to us for one more year of film photography.

                                                I used this product to print images of 14 different models of all skin tones and in different lighting situations. Every image I got was cool and widely toned. The pearl finish helped hide fingerprints on the page, and showed much more detail than a matte paper. The only problem I found was that the because of the size, the paper is more susceptible to bending when I remove it from the chemicals with tongs.

                                                    This paper is awesome for the home darkroom. Heavy enough so it doesn't wrinkle, easy to expose correctly with the split filter technique and the short wash time really saves water. Also the pearl finish is very forgiving.
