    Kodak Royal really lasts. I was just flipping through some of my old albums (~10yrs).
    They all look brand new to me. Some konica papers already faded.

    I just switched Fuji recently, very nice colours but dunno if it lasts.

    hmmmmm
    which one more lasting, i ain't sure.
    but if you are talking about colours, no doubt those printed on fuji papers have more vibrant colours!
    had personally tried fuji, kodak, konica b4.
    love the colours of a fuji!
    kodak's are a bit too yellow for my liking!

    Fuji and Kodak both good. Still prefer Fuji.
    Definitely no Konica.

    I prefer Fuji Crystal Archive papers. Use KT at Hong Lim Complex. They use Fuji Crystal Archive Supreme paper. Discounts avaliable for Clubsnap members.

    Personally, I think that most Kodak prints are a tad too yellowish.

    Heard that some shops charge abit higher because they will glace through your photos first and edit the contrast and brightness of the whole load of your pictures before developing them out. Is this true?

    I'd try the Koday express outlet at Far East Plaza, 3rd floor, near the overhead bridge. 1 hour + can collect liao. 100pcs 4R onwards for 30cent each.

    Quality not bad... that's why I started this thread to gather feedback from Bros here,.. which paper is better. Anyway, seems like Fuji a major win here

    Obviously you had not used Konica's Golden Dragon Paper before . Anyway, Both Fuji and Kodak also comes with 2nd and 3rd Grade papers, as much as Konica having 1st Grade papers.

    I normally prefered Kodak Royal Paper and will not Reject Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper Supreme. But I try hard to avoid Fujicolour Archive Paper.

    But then that is also own preference. Basically, it boils down to whether the printer can calibrate their machine to print on the paper properly, getting the right colour tone.

    cute man the name.. ahah so cheena.. now i know konica's top grade paper. but why is so poorly publicised?

    There was a photo competition last year and my friend took part in it. They said you had to print it on Konica paper for some reason (forgot what lah..) then the colours turned out.. really bad.. if only I knew of the golden dragon back then...
