Foma Fomaspeed Variant III VC RC Paper is a neutral-tone, medium-weight, variable contrast black & white paper on a pure white, resin coated base.

Fomaspeed is made using silver chlorobromide emulsion that gives a silver image tone shading from neutral to mildly warm. The paper features a very rich halftone scale from a shining white to a saturated black.

This paper features short exposure and developing times, due to the built in developing substances in the emulsion to ensure fast and consistent results.
Its high speed enables to use large lens diaphragm values even at enlarging on large sheet sizes.
Nice cold to warm image tone. Very good grey tonalities in the range of skin tones.
A very uncomplicated portrait-photography paper. Easy to process and easy to dry.
Quality black & white paper manufactured in the Czech Republic and available for the first time in U.S. sizes.
Widely used in over 50 countries around the world.
Process Type Fomaspeed can be processed with usual developers by hand in trays or in developing machines that are suitable for the papers on fiber base. The resulting image tone can be influenced using various types of developers. For a neutral image tone the Fomatol LQN or Fomatol P developers are recommended. Other developers are also recommended such as Polymax (Kodak), Variospeed (Tetenal), PQ Universal (Ilford) or Dektol (Kodak).
