Ilford 2002454 reviews

GALERIE Prestige Gold Mono Silk Paper (5 x 7", 100 Sheets) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Similar, but not exactly like Canson Baryta Love this for 5x7 b&w. Close in detail and tone to Canson Baryta, but just slightly cooler. (Much warmer than Epson UltraPremium Glossy, if that helps.) Also a slightly smoother, glossier surface. On my Epson 3880 I just add a little warmth through printer settings. The LR CC soft-proofing is accurate. Hard to find a 5x7 better for b&w; however, I dinged a star because it is not easy for me to use for color, especially with flesh tones. I'm certainly no master printer, but I've used quite a few Moab and Epson products for both color and b&w, but this one continues to be tricky for color. Definitely an important paper for times when 8.5 x 11 Canson Baryta is just too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous B&W Admitedly, I'm making a judgment based on a few prints: 1) a test print from the Nortlight Images web site 2) a couple of my favorite black and white pictures of my daughter. However, I can say with some confidence that this is my favorite paper so far for B&W. I have tried Inkpress Luster and Moab Entrada Rag Natural. Of the three, the Ilford paper presented the best with the Northlight Images B&W test image - with the standard, Ilford provided, profile. The pictures of my daughter were equally impressive - but in that respect there is some parental bias. This is my new favorite papter! The other is Inkpress Luster - which is about 40% less expensive, but does not perform nearly as well with B&W images; at least not with out of the box profiles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this paper for B&W I use this paper for my fine art black and white photography. It is very close to the old fiber based wet dark room paper in feel and how it dries after being printed. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for the traditional darkroom look and feel with their photography

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll be buying more. My teacher recommended this for b&w work prints for our class. Great quality for a reasonable price.
