Its variable contrast designation permits working with multigrade filters, from #0 to #5, to adjust contrast to suit printing with different negative densities.

It also responds well to various toning processes to heighten its archival stability or to adjust the print tone.

Oriental 18-FVC16X20-50 reviews

Seagull Select VC-FBII Paper (Glossy, 16 x 20", 50 Sheets) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Paper Its hard to find good silver gelatin paper these days, as many already know. I tested this paper against others and found the tonalities richer and the blacks better than most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased! I bought this paper instead of the Ilford paper because of the B&H student discount and I must say I am very pleased!! It is just as good or even better than Ilford in many ways. I feel like it is a little less contrasty and the whites are not as bright but it is still a VERY beautiful paper. I cannot wait to finish printing my portfolio on the 16x20 paper. I also bought 8x10 and 11x14 and they are all very consistant with each other. Nice deep blacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great alternative to ilford! I love this paper! I first bought it because it was a little cheaper than Ilford and I had read a lot of really great reviews on it. It's a little different that Ilford.. but it is the same quality. The highlights are a little different, they are not as stark white as Ilford but I actually like the Oriental better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!!! This paper is great! Fifty sheets each one was in good condition. Aside from the paper, which was obviously good, ... And the package was nice and secure. There is nothing worse than receiving a damaged box when there is light sensitive material inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paper Oriental Seagull VC-FB DW glossy paper is capable of producing intense whites and the deepest of blacks. A beautiful paper that makes the most elegant of prints... Archival and heirloom quality... Yes, lovely stuff that works well for most subjects...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Very Best. Exceptional prints come easily with this paper. With a great range of print color available through changes in development and toning one isn't stuck with any one thing from this paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paper If you're already looking at this, I guess you're ready to lay down the money. The price of silver gelatin paper has gone through the roof! Seagull VC FB is one of the best, comparable with Ilford. It used to be a bit less expensive, but not anymore. To my taste, it's better than Ilford. The base seems heavier, the blacks deeper, the highlights more brilliant. It's probably all in the process though. I develop in LPD 1:3, which renders a neutral tone that I find lovely. It's up to you though. That's why we're still in the darkroom!
