Anyone using this paper? Good or not so good? This is the only decent stocked paper in my city aside from Canon paper for my pro 100 and Canon inks. I will use Ilford icc profiles.


A photograph is worth a thousand words, but Photoshop can produce a thousand lies. Photo editing allowed. I need all the help I can get.

Quite some time ago I tried Ilford Galerie Classic Gloss on my HP printer (with proper profiles) and the depth of blacks was lacking compared to HP Premium Plus Photo Paper as well as to Canon Glossy paper, used by my son on his Canon 9000.

Will check for that when I get a small 4x6 pack for testing. Thanks

Look at the blacks at a bit of an angle.

This is how I discovered the issue - walking past the print displayed on the mantelpiece.

There are many types of Ilford paper. Which one in particular are you talking about?

I use the Gold Fibre Silk and Gold Mono Silk. Both of them are very good. GMS is a great paper for B&W work.

I thought that Ilford had left the digital imaging market, and were now only producing their range of traditional B&W silver halide products. Or has that changed again? I seem to recall that the traditional B&W film/darkroom part of the business was subject to a management buyout, which saw them retain the trademarks while the digital side of the business eventually went bust. I even recall several people bemoaning the fact that their favorite Ilford digital papers were no more, and what would they do when they ran out on the very forum.

I am about to test as many papers to see what does what.
