    Hi nt!

    The third hit on a google search tells us that:

    "A c-type print, such as Ektachrome, is a colour print in which the
    print material has at least three emulsion layers of light
    sensitive silver salts. Each layer is sensitised to a different
    primary colour - either red, blue or green - and so records
    different information about the colour make-up of the image.
    During printing, chemicals are added which form dyes of the
    appropriate colour in the emulsion layers. It is the most
    common type of colour photograph"

    Yeah i was surprised to find that it's normal too - can you imagine the size
    of the enlarger you'd need?
    Perhaps he uses some kind of scanning-enlarger which doesn't do the whole
    image at once, but I've never read about such a thing.
    Was also surprised they were all taken on MF, the grain and res are amazing
    for photos that size - I first thought they must have been either LF or
    digital.

    so, judging from what is written in the link, its just a regular optical
    colour print on RC paper?? is that what that jargon is supposed to mean??

    From the olden days:

    A type C print is a regular color print made directly from a color
    negative.

    A type R print was a color print made directly from a color slide. In
    other words, type R paper was a color paper that was reversal processed to
    give a print from a slide without having to use an internegative.
