Sealed but tested and confirmed working.
Vintage analog photographic paper. Manufactured in UK by Kodak
Expired date guessing 2001.
Carton, paper is heavy and with amazing vintage surface, this way I like it very very much, so I've used one box of 9x14 and I'm very happy of the results, read below.
Boxes of Kodak Bromide vintage photographic paper was collected by me in winter 2020/21 and since then stored in cool and dry place (5-10°C . 55-65% humidity).
Boxes are sealed, this way surprise is yours! I'm not able to explain printing results on this particular box and explain exact problems like smoke, cracked gelatin or other damage caused by years since expiration date. But! I'm
- not collecting boxes that smells like moldy cellar, looks flooded or having package damaged - if I found it, trash it
- actively and successfully using papers from the same origin, same supply and same previous owner, thus I'm almost sure, sealed boxes behave similar to the one I've used. You can find printing examples on related products listings.
- guide you for tips and tricks on exposing and developing vintage analog photographic papers, as some problems with vintage photographic papers could be solved by chemistry or could be additional lucre if used correctly.
- looking forward to get your feedback as I'm vintage photography passionate and I love to bring back those old papers back to life. Do not hesitate to contact me for advice or to share the results.
PLEASE NOTE: One of the box from the same supply was opened and tested by me in March 2021, then confirmed working with D166 developer (please see notes below and images attached).
- Eukobrom or W14 developer causing a very little blue/grey tint smoke on whole paper, including even not exposed areas, please use D166 developer to reduce it or by other methods (see READ MORE below)
- no cracked gelatin found
- no spots of bacteria (white undeveloped spots) or any other problems
