Well, I just tried some grade 2 Azo and I can't make up my mind if it's the grea test thing since sunlight or just another paper. My negs, which generally print well on grade 2 Portriga rapid, look as if they might be a tad flat on the Azo p aper. They look OK, they're just not knock-your-socks-off wonderful. In my case, the negatives that printed best on it were the ones that I had mistakenly over- developed. With Azo, is it best to go for a fully-developed, dense negative? Also, Michael Smith has written that a 300 watt bulb works best with Azo. I trie d that and fried the paper black. I wound up going with a 60 watt bulb, but my t ypical exposures were still around 3 to 5 seconds (each bulb was about 3 to 4 fo ur feet from the paper). I plan to power down to a 25 watt bulb next time. I do like the look of the prints -- there is more shadow detail and highlight de tail, but there is (to my eye) that touch of flatness. But, maybe my negs just a ren't suited to Azo. Sorry to go on and on like this, but just wanted to share my Azo experiences. Th anks. Ben Calwell
