    are you aware of any special difficulties which may arise when
    using Multigrade RC paper for making prints from a BW400CN film ?
    As recommended by Kodak, the filter shall be n° 4 or 4 1/2.
    thanks for any advise.

    I've had no real problems printing Kodak's chromogenic film on multigrade
    RC papers (mostly Agfa MCP 310 RC), except for one frame that was badly
    underexposed and probably wouldn't have printed well if I'd used a
    conventional B&W film. I had to max out the contrast on that one. Most
    frames seem to print well with an effective contrast of 2.5-3, in my
    experience. Of course, your preferences might differ or you might need
    different settings with your enlarger/filters or paper.

    the 4 or 4.5 is correct. ive found the exposure also needs to be longer
    when printing through C41 film.
