This 100-sheet pack of 8 x 10" Seagull Select VC-FBII Paper from Oriental is a baryta-coated fiber base paper with a smooth glossy finish designed for traditional black & white photo printing. Its variable contrast designation permits working with multigrade filters, from #0 to #5, to adjust contrast to suit printing with different negative densities. The paper has a double weight bright white base and produces a cool tone image characterized by stark black and pure white values. It also responds well to various toning processes to heighten its archival stability or to adjust the print tone.

Oriental 18-FVC8X10-100 reviews

Seagull Select VC-FBII Paper (Glossy, 8 x 10", 100 Sheets) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paper! This is my third or fourth box of Oriental Seagull FB paper. I used to use Ilford MGIV exsclusively, but I'm beginning to think I like this paper better. Gloss surface only, I have not tried the matte in this brand. The Oriental seems to have a heavier base than Ilford Galerie and just feels like quality. Should be more than suitable for for gallery grade presentation prints. Compared to MGIV (not the warmtone) the Oriental seems to have a brighter, whiter base for highlights that just sparkle and glow and a better Dmax for very rich, deep, satisfying blacks. I typically develop this papar in Dektol 1:3, which gives great results but Edwal Ultra Black is capable of delivering the richest, deepest blacks I think I've ever seen in a print.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, affordable price. This is currently my favorite brand and type of paper to make prints on. I first used the 11x14 size and decided to try a box of 8x10. Quality is the same in both sizes, and I'm very satisfied with the prints. There's a certain depth in the finished prints that I cannot put into words. Contrast, tonal range, deep blacks, bright highlights... all around excellent quality at an affordable price. My only complaint would be that the paper seems to scratch/damage more easily than other papers when dried and pressed. Just requires a little extra care when processing, handling and storing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks Im printing using 4x5 negative slide film on this paper. The reason I'm not printing larger is because we are studying techniques involving camera movments and the zone system. To print larger would be unnecessary in such a situation so this is a great size for what I am trying to achieve. This paper has a great range in exposure zones. The only thing I'm not sure I like about this product is the box. I'm always afraid that it is going to open. It hasn't because I'm extra careful but maybe I'm just being concerning when I shouldn't. The box tends to bulge because the paper naturally curves due to the emulsion. I think that is what is causing it. I would still buy this product regardless. Oh and one more thing. This is glossy, but it isn't like an RC glossy or a color paper glossy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A good product, but???? As an experienced black and white photographer with over 30 years of refining my craft I am pleased with the Seagull paper. It has a full range of tones with clean open highlights and deep powerful shadows. It responds very well to D72 developer and ANSCO 130 developer and if it wasn't for the But I would say it is one of the best papers that I ever used. Now the But. I have discovered that the batch that I have purchased has an imperfection like a rust stain in about 50% of the sheets. I am hoping that the other 400 sheets do not exhibit this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse paper and consumer service! I purchased the paper in march from bhphoto of this year. After the first 5 prints my paper were defective and fogging. So I used my friends ilford and printed the same negative. No foggy or lighting where the paper was tampered. I contacted seagull oriental. Sent them my defective print with my own postage. Took them nearly 3/4 months to have a conclusion. They blamed it on me yet I used the paper in the same environment and conditions. Horrible company that does not own up to their mistakes when their product is defective! Never again on this product !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Alternate to Ilford FB MG Cooltone This double weight fibre, MG VC paper compares favourably to it's Ilford counter part producing a nice tonal range. Easy to work with and stands up well during the development "tray" process. Not quite as "brilliant" as Ilford Cooltone but brighter than Ilford Classic FB. It does require more exacting development conditions and it is highly recommended that you adhere to the accompanying data sheet. Ensure your "amber" safelight(s) are a minimum of 47" from the bottom of your trays, DO NOT over develop beyond 90" in the developer as the paper will fog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from as good as it gets I've been using Seagull VC for so many years I can't remember when I bought my first package. I've tried many other papers, and always come back to it for its neutral tone, its sharpness, and its ability to retain highlight and shadow detail, even with difficult negatives. Highly recommended!
