  3. Can you translate any of it? What types of paper are these? Graded?
    Variable contrast?

  6. Paper's there. It's all color. No BW.

  7. I saw that, it doesn't count. Color B&W paper is an Oxymoron ;-)

  9. So, who said anything about "Color B&W paper"?

  10. Looking at the US site, there is nothing about Fujibromide. Am I
    correct in assuming that what you posted is a translation of what
    appeared on the Japanese site?

  11. I also did a site search using "Fujibromide" and got nothing.

    Apparently they don't want to sell it outside of Japan. That was how
    it was several years back with Neopan.

    I guess Tsutomo was translating from the Japanese site.

  12. I'm very interested in pursuing Fuji B&W papers, to see what they look
    like. Ilford's on the ropes, as we know...

  13. Not necessarily -- though I don't recall which company makes this, I
    seem to recall a B&W RA-4 paper that is specifically intended for use in
    producing B&W prints from C-41 negatives, either color or B&W. Not much
    market for it now that almost all commercial printing is done digitally,
    but it was basically a paper version of XP-2/BW400CN, a chromogenic
    paper with one layer of black dye couplers instead of three color layers
    and a filter layer.

  14. Like I said its an Oxymoron, with probably 1/4 the life expectancy
    of real "live" silver paper.

  15. No arguments on the archival properties -- I was just commenting that
    such a product exists.

  16. Kodak makes it. It's intended to produce B&W prints using RA-4.
