Did not have a good experience. Product was packed poorly and came damaged. This has happened more than once. The first time I was on a deadline and worked around the bent edge and printed smaller. This time I am returning.
This is very good quality paper - the images are clear, and compared to a digital print of the same image, much more crisp and colorful (in a good way). The only problem is that the paper itself is very thin and flimsy - dents way too easily.
I'm not sure what the other reviewers here are getting at, because this paper has a rich and vibrant dynamic range. Also, acquiring color shifts in the highlights is NEVER a result of the paper, but rather is entirely user or lab error. As most who have worked with C prints before know, color shifts are natural occurrences in the process to achieving a perfect print, and can be corrected by adding red. Needless to say, this paper delivers excellent results along with a nice, bright white base. One of my favorite RA-4 papers.
This product works well with Fujifilm, you get solid results. If printing with Kodak film, you may need to adjust for the temperature of the paper-cool-but the end product is still good, pending experience and technical knowledge. Highly recommended.
The paper works very well. especially with fuji film
I am in a color photography class and have used only Fuji papers. This paper is great for beginners to professionals. The lustre paper is the perfect middle ground, not too glossy and not too matte. The only problem I had was printing in the darkroom, I started a new box of paper and the filter combination was a little off from the previous box of paper. I had to change the filters by around 7 points or so and then it was no problem. Other than that, great product! Also I'm glad I started with Fuji paper since as of recently Kodak doesn't make photo paper anymore.
I have started printing in color this year and have been using the Fuji paper. It is consistent within a box of paper. A new box would require a slight adjustment but that is normal. I like the saturation and the look I get with Fuji. I use their film as well but that is not necessary when printing with their paper.
i was using kodak paper, but my film is fujifilm, which is my favorite brand. one of my favorites bought it first, and he allowed me to use some. i fell in love. the outcome was so smooth and the colors were vibrant (along with my wonderful printing of course haha). i really enjoy this paper
Excellent paper for enlarging or contact printing. I used it for conventional color, printing cross-processed negatives, and printing warm black and white images (I got close to sepia).
