Default Canon I960

Received my Canon i960 photo printer on Thursday. This printer makes spectacular photo's....... that is if I use Canon paper. I have tried 2 types of paper on the identical photo.

1. Canon photo pro- like I said, spectacular.

2. Kodak Ultima - unbelievable how bad this photo came out, the ink just didn't apply correctly. The photo is spotty, looks like very large grain in the picture. I have read that the makers of camera;s and paper tailor the inks the paper together, now I believe it.

I will be trying some other papers soon.

You can not see the canon i960 on the list, but you migh try canon i950 setup.

I have had the same experiences. It takes a bit of effort to get good results out of the Kodak paper and Canon inks. The default driver settings tend use more ink than it looks like is necessary for the Kodak paper to absorb so you you usually just get a nasty pooling effect.

Yes, it does have a pooling effect, I will try some of the suggested settings. Thanks

mnmike:

THE KODAK SETTINGS ON THE WEBSITE ARE WRONG!!!

I've tried these settings and even called Kodak: These published settings do NOT work: the results are terrible.

INSTEAD: Use the "High Gloss Photo Film" setting in the Canon printer driver, and do not use ANY of the KODAK settings at all (eg DONT add intensity etc etc).

The results with the HGPF paper setting are VERY VERY GOOD!!!

Please let us know your experience too!

I too have been trying Kodak Ultima Paper on my Epson 785 EPX. Seems the only way I am able to is by importing pics that are PIM II . Using any other colour profiled pic results in anything from dull, muddy to pinkified grainy trash. Have also tried the Kodak recommended setting to no avail.

S.O.S

Try using Kodak's ICC profiles available at:
http://www.kodak.com/global/en/profe...14.27.12&lc=en

Let me know how it works out. I don't have any Kodak brand paper to test out on (I use Epson with great success).

Thanks for the linc. But I have been there with no luck. Mostly due to the fact that my printer is not on the list of supported printers. Which I guess should have been a tip off. Through e-mail to thier "help" people I acquired a profile for my Stylus 785EPX, with the same results. I have since given up on Kodak paper, I will stick with what I know works. Epson Papers for Epson printers and inks...only makes sense. If you think about it.
