About Adorama

• Adorama VGRC is a high speed, variable contrast, black and white enlarging paper with a medium weight, polyethylene coated base. The paper base is 190 g/m2 coated on both sides with 40 g/m2 of polyethylene giving a base weight of approximately 270 g/m2 and a thickness of approximately 245 microns. The silver halide emulsion has a silver content of approximately 1.5 g/m2.
• Adorama VC RC gives a consistent image tone across all grades, exhibits excellent image sharpness and is available in Glossy & Pearl surfaces. The use of yellow and magenta colored filters permits selection of required contrast from a range of grades similar to that of graded papers. A neutral-cool image tone and clean white base combine to give a high quality paper equally suitable for tray or machine processing.
• Adorama VGRC 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 3.5 have the same speed (ISO P250) and grades 4 and 5 require approximately twice the exposure. For the filter settings of table B, grades 0 to 4 have the same speed (ISO P320). Grades 00 and 5 require more exposure (ISO P250). 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 photographic darkroom illuminated by standard OC or red safelights containing 15 watt bulbs or equivalent. The safelights should be at least 3 feet from the paper at all times and good working practice of keeping exposure to safelights at a minimum should be adopted. Unused paper should be returned to its original packaging for storage.

Super Value - you need some!


Even if you don't do a lot of RC final prints, this stuff is super-handy for… Contact sheets (that can fit in a binder with neg sleeves) Dialing in new processes (say, masking, etc) Basic planning for fiber prints I use this often to dial-in dodging and burning and contrast. Even when my final is 16x20 fiber, this el-cheapo paper has great blacks and tonal range.


Super Good for the Low cost!


I used the papers for my photography class and it was really good. Especially for the price, its totally worth it. I suggest getting the 100 pack if you need more. The quality is really nice like professional grade printed photos. The color tones of black and gray are really pretty. Its a must!


Great product and value


Great paper for doing a lot of prints


same quality paper, much better price


This was a great purchase specially for a student on a tight budget. [...] I will definitely buy from Adorama again.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DALE N  This is a low cost alternative to Ilford products and is used as a starter pack for college students enrolled in photography 101. It produces images every bit the equal to Ilford glossy paper.
Shopper  Does this product have a shelf life?
FADI H  usually there is no expiration date for paper. I used 5 years old RC paper without any problem. However, you may have to increase exposure time or contrast. Fiber based paper on the other hand turns creamy with time and it is better not to leave it on the shelf for over a year or so.
