    Has anyone started using the new Photo Rag Matt Baryta, Photo Silk Baryta and the Bamboo Gloss Baryta?

    I am particularly interested in the Photo Rag Matt Baryta..

     

    If so, it would be interesting to know your thoughts and impressions.

    Thanks!

    William

    I’m looking into the feasibility of testing them. If anything happens I’ll advise.

    I put in a notification request for a test sized roll of the 24″ Silk with B&H (16 foot vs the normal 50 foot).  They have 17″ rolls in stock and 24″ for the Matt.  I’m not a tester in any shape or form though, just a casual user so I’ll also be looking forward to any testing Mark is able to do.

    Great news, Mark! Would be interesting to see how the new Matte Baryta from Hahnemühle compares to the already tested Canson Baryta Photographique Matt and if this is more than a marketing gimmick.

    The review process is underway. It’s a lot of work evaluating 4 papers at a go, so it will take a while. Hahnemuhle and Canson are two independent competitor companies operating in two different countries, so no, there is no marketing gimmick that I would expect or am aware of. That said, there are only a few coating facilities in Europe; while the recipes and possibly quality for the different surfaces vary, from a user perspective there can be a lot of similarity for a particular paper type from one manufacturer to the next without there being “gimmicks”. Choice can boil down to price. Anyhow, work is underway, let’s see what emerges.
