Elite paper

Discussion in 'Darkroom Developing and Printing' started by Michael Scarpitti, Sep 15, 2003.

  1. I have some Kodak Elite paper unopened from about five years ago. I
    hope it's still good. Anybody use much of it?

  2. It was my favorite paper until Kodak discontinued it. It tended to fog
    after a few years, though.

  4. It had a very deep Dmax and crisp white. The only paper I found that I liked better is the Old "Brilliant"
    paper sold by Calumet, the new Brilliant I believe is Ilford MG? The old Brilliant has become Bergger paper
    and is quite good, although pricey. Oh and I also really liked Bromofort grade 2 & 3 when I could still get them.

    I like grade three I might add for 16x20 size images as it lends a little kick sometimes to images
    that typically print well on grade two at sizes up to 11x14. (from 4x5)

    Greg,

    Try the Fomabrom, normal contrast paper. You can get this from J&C. My
    choice as the #1 graded paper made today.
