About Adorama

• Adorama VGFB Gloss is a high speed variable contrast black and white enlarging paper with a double weight fiber base. The use of color filters permits selection of required contrast from a range of grades similar to that of graded papers, with the advantage to the user of reduced paper stock. A neutral image tone and a clean white base combine to give a high quality paper equally suitable for dish processing. The paper gives a consistent image tone across the grades and exhibits good sharpness.
• This paper is designed for use with tungsten or tungsten halogen light sources. Other light sources may give different contrast values. Exposure of the paper is straight forward, depending on which filter system is in use. For Ilford Multigrade filters, grades 00 to 3 have the same speed (ISO P 250) and grades 4 and 5 require approximately twice the exposure. For the filter settings, grades 0 to 4 have the same speed (ISO P 320). Grades 00 and 5 require more exposure (ISO P 250). When no filter is used, the paper has a contrast of approximately grade 2 and a speed of ISO P 640.
• Open only in a darkroom illuminated by safelights Ilford 904 or Kodak OC containing 15W bulbs or equivalent; red safelights may also be used. The safelights should be at least one metre from the paper at all times and good working practice of keeping exposure to safelight at a minimum should be adopted. Unused paper should be returned to its original packaging for storage.

Great results for less money


from New York, NY  -  Casual Photographer

Adorama's fiber paper produces a great range of tones in your black & white photos for much less cost than Ilford's fiber papers. My only gripe is that I had to order it on-line and wasn't able to buy it at the store the three times I visited. But it's so worth being able to make beautiful prints filled with varying tones of gray.


Excellent exhibition quality paper!


from Boston, MA  -  Pro Photographer

I use Adorama paper almost exclusively and recommend it to my students. I've worked with most papers out there now and prefer the results I get with this product.


I keep using this paper


from Texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Even big name photographers in the art photography world can't tell the difference between "MAJOR PHOTOGRAPHIC PAPERS" and the Adorama papers


good paper for the price


from Martinez,CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Having only made a few prints so far, the only thing I find worth noting is that it's not as thick as Ilford fb. Overall this paper is great for the price.
