    I would never insult a collector by showing a print made on RC plastic (it is not paper).

    Re: paper choice for sales and shows

    A photog friend of mine insists that he'd rather have an improperly processed RC print than an improperly processed paper print, meaning it is easier to screw-up fiber. Personally, I can't make much of a print on RC. They just seem to miss range, depth, and detail. The one quality not mentioned here is the feel of RC vs paper. I like handling loose prints: the feel, the tooth, the shine. RC is just slippery while the papers have something special for me. YMMV. Happy snaps.

    Regardless of whether it's better or worse, RC paper has a reputation of being cheap and inferior. That inertia is hard to overcome.

    I wish we had had RC when I worked for the newspaper. Newspaper reproduction is so bad, who would know? We had a process I think was called a photo stabilizer. It used a special paper and a special processor. It made a pretty nice print that was soggy, but instant.
