ID-11plus is non allergenic, their Delta 400 has as fine grain (maybe?) at TMax 100. Delta 100 is phenomenal. I sometimes wish I was still doing black and white at least part of the time. The exhibit I have hanging is almost half black and white, hand-enlarged, and sure makes me wistful for the "good old days." All but one of my prints is from a dye-sub printer, but everyone there couldn't tell the difference between them and the one C print. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch My Karma ran over my Dogma..
