          Comments about Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe MGD.44M B&W Paper (8 x 10", Pearl, 35 Sheets):

          As a student I'm very excited to try new products and experiment how each of them work of different kinds of work. My favorite Ilford B&W paper was matte but since they no longer make it (I can't find it) I was set out to look for the next best thing. Ilford's Pearl was just what I wanted as far as RC goes. Since RC is more plastic than paper I didn't want to over do the gloss. Pearl gives me the slight hint of shine. I would get it in a bigger size (8x10 is very constricting) 16x20 would probably be the size I would order. If you're a student the 8x10 works great though!

            Used this paper for my photography class. Especially to experiment in the darkroom (make examples of different contrast, etc); it dries easily and flat, and even I don't used for my final product... I love the finish of it!

                I tried this paper to test it out before my final prints and have really loved it. Very good quality as most Ilford i. I always use this brand for my final work.

                  I use this product for my pinhole camera and my holga photography. I really have no complaints about it, but I do like the pearl paper. This is a high quality paper, and the prints are crisp and fine.

                      Paper is sealed within a box, inside that box is a black sleeve that further protects the photo sensitive paper from light. This paper is great!

                          I love it, it works really well on prints.
                          If I could change something about it i'd create a snap-able case so you don't have to worry about the box opening if it were in a backpack.

                            This is exactly what you are looking for if you need paper for use with pinhole cameras and have access to a dark room for processing. I did both for my intro to black and white photography course and my photos came out great! Really prefer the pearl over the glossy, will definitaly be buying again.

                                    the pearl is the perfect solution between "OMG too shiny!" and flat. All the paper is securely protected from accidental light exposure and all the prints I've made with it have turned out beautifully.

                                      Ilford paper is always high quality, and this particular product is excellent since you get an extra 10 sheets of paper. Also, the pearl sheen is lovely to print on, not as glaring as glossy but doesn't dry down as much as matte. I use it primarily for black and white prints.

                                          I used this Ilford RC pearl paper to develope 35mm film, for Christmas gifts. The tonal range of this paper is great, as well as the quality and finish. Pearl paper looks better framed than glossy in my opinion. The ten extra sheets of paper really make the price unbeatable!

                                            As a photography 101 student I go through a lot of paper. I bought this pack because it was very inexpensive which allowed me to try out different types of paper. So if you want to try matte, glossy or pearl for the first time this is a good paper to buy to try it out. :)
