    I use this paper for my best framable subjects and
    prints for others. It has a great color and tonal
    range for color AND black and white. The surface is viewable from so many angles without shine. It's quite consistant. I really can't find anything about it to criticize. I have prints from
    the 290 gsm 11 years old and they look great.

    Prestige what?

    I use this paper as a cheap alternative to my ilford gold fibre silk or canson baryta. I usually use this paper for roll prints because its cheaper, the weight never really bothered me...Read complete review

    I use this paper as a cheap alternative to my ilford gold fibre silk or canson baryta. I usually use this paper for roll prints because its cheaper, the weight never really bothered me (cause roll prints are usually mounted or framed) and color gamut is descent (not great). I'm just disappointed cause once ilford changed the name to "prestige", not only do they charge more and force you to buy more stock, they also advertised that the paper is heavier. The paper is exactly the same as the older version.

            This is one of my very favorite papers!
            As a portrait and wedding photographer, color and skin tone accuracy as well as even saturation are paramount.
            This paper delivers flawlessly.
            I like the texture a lot, as do my clients.
            In anything, prints come out a tad bright, making this an ideal choice for darker color values.

                I printed a bunch of photos using Kodak paper and wasn't happy with the quality. Printed them again using the Ilford paper and not only was the paper a heavier weight, but more importantly, the colors really popped.

                      I like the satin finish with just a hint of a pebbled texture. The 310 weight has the feel of old photo paper. I can't speak of longevity yet, only time will tell.

                      Using it with a Canon Pixma Pro 9000 MKII and the Ilford ICC profiles, the color and exposure is spot on when printing thru CS5.
