Foma Retrobrom is a very nice paper but i find it doesn't lith in the usual way. I don't get the same infectious development in the shadow areas so it doesn't give a traditionally 'gritty' lith look....

I've used both Ian's versions (standard and conc) of ID78 and they're excellent - nice tones, good capacity and long tray life. My standard developing time is 3 minutes at 20 degC.
