russian films & paper : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

I was looking all over the web for some info regarding russian B&W films & paper to no avail. The reason is that my local supplier has some material that neither him nor me know nothing about! (some are labled only in russian). Any of the russians here can help?

Why in the world would you want to waste your time and money on this stuff??? Especially when there are proven, truly excellent materials readily avaible? Although not as risky as a Russian-built nuclear reactor, the materials in question certainly will never acheive the quality of Ilford or other mainstream materials.

Russian paper? It's not really black and white. It's gray, there is no blacks, no whites. Garbage. I'd lived there and tried to print for over 10 years. Just forget it.
