Single grade vs multi-grade papergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Black_and_White_Photography : One Thread
It seems that the versatility of multi-grade paper has made it extremely popular. I was wondering how everyone feels about the overall quality of each type of paper and if there are any noticeable differences. I have been using nothing but multi-grade paper so I can't really judge for myself.

My preivious question was somewhat vague. What I meant to ask was for peoples opinion on single grade vs. multigrade paper.

I've used Ilford Galerie and Ilford Multigrade IV FB, and the only slight difference I was able to see is in the characteristics of the paper support. It seems to me that the image characteristics are substantially equivalent.
As far as RC paper is concerned, I think that single-graded papers used to be better than multigrade papers until the introduction of Multigrade IV. Now, it seems to me that the result are more or less equivalent.
