I'm getting ready to fire up my darkroom after being "out of it" for a year, and I notice that paper choices have narrowed a bit. And maybe the cost is up a little? I'm being sarcastic. But looking at my choices, I'm wondering what's best. I have always printed with Ilford MG FB papers, cold and warm tone. They now seem to be the priciest by far, and I now need to make a major purchase to last for a good long time. I've had good luck with Oriental cold tone papers... anyone have experience with their warmtone product?

The rumor mill had it that Adox was soon releasing Agfa MCC-111 under their label. I keep watching for something along those lines, but have not seen it yet. If that happens, a marvelous paper will be once again available to us. It has warm blacks with neutral whites.

If you like warmer white as well, try Kentmere FIneprint Warmtone.

See this thread on Oriental Warmtone:

If you like a cream base Fomatone MG Classic warmtone is very nice.
