Tested and confirmed working
Vintage analog photographic paper. Manufactured in Germany by AGFA, tested and confirmed working by BromideOxides Studio.
Expired, no info about expiration date on box but estimated for around 1990.
Carton, paper is very heavy and this way I like it §very very much, so I'm using it often recently.
Exact size: 12,7 x 17,8 cm (5 x 7 inch)
Box of Portriga Rapid vintage analog 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). Box was opened and tested by me in Dec 2020, then confirmed working with D166 developer (please see notes below) - packed in light-proof box that contains 17 (or 37) sheets each, and again stored in cool and dry place.
BONUS: each of first 4 packages contains early-access-bonus: suggestions based on my experience about exposition and developing time, D166 developer formula and one printed example.
- Eukobrom or W14 developer causing blue tint smoke on whole paper, including even not exposed areas, you need to use D166 developer or by other methods (see READ MORE below)
- no cracked gelatin found
- very rare random spots of bacteria (white undeveloped spots). I've found it on one per 10-15 sheets, this way I'm adding extra 2 sheets to each box that gives 17 (or 37) and 2 free.
