A versatile paper for general black and white enlargements, this box of 100 sheets of 5 x 7" Multigrade IV RC DeLuxe Paper from Ilford features a pearl 44M surface finish that has a more textured appearance than glossy paper to help reduce overwhelming surface reflections, yet still retains some reflectivity to achieve deeper black values for a longer apparent tonal scale. Its bright white base tint delivers a cool-to-neutral image color, and it responds well to select toners, especially selenium, for increasing the effective print lifespan. As a variable contrast paper, it responds to seven full grades of contrast during printing, when using multigrade filters, and it is suitable for printing both conventional black and white negatives as well as chromogenic black and white negative films. Additionally, the paper can be processed using standard black and white chemistry in either trays or using machine processors.

Multigrade IV RC DeLuxe Paper (Pearl, 5 x 7", 100 Sheets) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent, excellent tonal grading Ilford IV RC Deluxe is an easy to use, reliably reproducible, photo paper. The pearl finish has a slightly textured semi-gloss appearance, less reflective than glossy, and one that I personally find attractive. Tonal range is very good and brings out, with a good quality negative and the appropriate multigrade contrast filter in the enlarger, a beautiful image. Gelatin silver papers do have a different look to black and white dye or pigment ink jet prints and it's one to relish. This paper is standard weight, entirely adequate but lacking that elusive quality of substance that heavier weight papers provide. Cheaper though, and in being so it encourages experimentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a new find i usually work with fiber-glossy finished photo paper but i wanted to make many amounts of prints for reference. i read about resin coated pearl paper and i must say the finish is very good. i am still able to do my split filtering printing and get pretty good contrast. the blacks get very deep (which is my preference) and the whites are easy to work with. i am satisfied with the product. this product is a great option for my work prints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in Class For RC paper, Ilford's Multigrade Pearl is pretty much the favorite of students, instructors, professionals, hobbyists, and labs that still offer traditional black and white services. The paper works flawlessly every time, shows extremely consistent batch-to-batch manufacturing, responds very well to contrast filter adjustments, and dries perfectly when properly squeegeed and heat dried. It is an excellent paper, and a great choice for anyone in the market for RC papers. I would highly recommend this paper in any size to photographers of all skill levels. For those looking for a bit of gloss to their prints, this is perfect. The Ilford RC gloss is extremely plastic-y looking, embodying the 'RC look' some have come to hold against all RC papers. The pearl finds an excellent middle ground, providing enough gloss to yield improved contrast while not looking too synthetic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine, Consistent RC Paper As black and white papers become scarcer, it's nice to have Ilford's quality RC paper available in my favorite pearl surface. The 5x7 size is good for both initial prints to evaluate if a negative is worth making into a serious final print, and for giving away as thank-yous to subjects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable I've been printing for forty years, and Ilford's MG IV is my standard RC paper. It is consistent and dependable, with appealing tonality. I do all my proofing and general printing on this paper, though the very best images get printed on Ilford's fiber-based papers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Ilford paper is by far my favorite. My only complaint is that I should have bought a larger box because I ran out half way through my project! I didn't realize how many negatives I had to work with, but the consistanecy in the print quality is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paper at a great price. This is the classic, go-to paper for black and white printing. Excellent tones, and I love the pearl finish. The 5x7 size matches the 35mm aspect ration and let's your print to the whole size of the paper without cropping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Resin Coated Paper! I took a black and white chemical photography class this semester and used this paper for all of my enlarged prints. Fine grain, good contrast, and the pearl finish is a great compromise between matte and glossy.
