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.

What a bargain!

I got this paper for a class I'm taking. At this price point, I expected the super thin student grade paper, and I really didn't need more than that for regular assignments. I thought I'd just buy some Ilford when I needed a better quality print. Boy was I surprised when I pulled it out and it was just as thick as Ilford. The pearl sheen is very nice and it's easy to discern the emulsion side under the safe light. Try this paper out, you won't be disappointed!

Good Quality - Higher Light Sensativity

This paper does not act like Illford paper. It requires its own timings for exposure. You can not use this paper for test prints and then print on another paper. This Adorama paper works well but reuires very short exposures or use of contrast filters to slow exposure. Must Stop down when enlarging. Very high contrast by deault. Contact prints exposed very dark on every inch of paper.

Excellent, Consistent Photo Paper

By

Used for 8X10 photographic prints. This is an excellent, consistent paper. In addition, it is relatively inexpensive, which is very important to me because I have a limited budget.

Great Price for amount of paper

By

This was the cheapest paper I could find. As a student I cannot afford the name brand papers so this is a good alternative.

Comparable to more expensive brands.

Price was a major factor.

Shopper  It has been alway now since this paper is out of stock, but are you going to carry any more of this type of paper ? If so, is there a way you let me know? Thanks
Andrew R  Per the estimates from the manufacturer, the item should be available after 11/26/12.
Susan C  How much longer will this paper be on backorder?
ELIZABETH D  Hi, I teach photography and recommend this for my students. It always seems to be on backorder! The backorder can go on for months. I would recommend buying glossy or matte paper in the meantime, or unfortunately, go elsewhere.
