    In years past I used either Ilford firber papers or Arista. Just curious if Kentmere is in the ballpark or not. discuss.

    I like it better. It reminds me more of Oriental. I would not hesitate using it.

    You may want to take a look on the Analog Photography Users Group (www.apug.org) - the forums there have at least 30 threads on Kentmere, and the galleries have 120 scans of members' images printed on various types of Kentmere paper (I just did a search). You have to be a subscriber to see the galleries, but it is worth it.

    Personally I have never liked Kentmere and could never understand why people used it. But it is just a personal view.
    And that is what choice of paper is: personal.
    If we were all the same life would be boring.
