Stopped by an old-style camera shop after work today, you know the kind that does not even have ONE digital camera in the store.

In their paper area, they had a box of this paper for $33. It's probably 15 years old, maybe more! If anyone's interested in it let me know and I'll hook you up. Hurry or I may buy it myself.

I've got 6 boxes of 11x14 grade 3 Brovira and everyone of them is fogged. They have been stored well and even with tricks like benzo, KBr and overexposure/underdevelope they won't give a clean white. I don't think this type of paper lives very long. So...I'm not sure I would trust it for much.

Second the aging problem. My experience was the same.

now if you come across any old Oriental let me know. I still have some from back before they left and then came back. It is still good.
