Default CANONI860 PHOTO PAPER SELECTION

CANON PHOTO PAPER PLUS GLOSSY CAME WITH MY PRINTER ^ PRODUCES VERY HIGH QUALITY PRINTS - SLIGHTLY YELLOW CAST?
ANYONE ELSE SEE THAT? COMMENTS


THE PHOTO PRO PAPER IS TWICE THE PRICE

IS THE HIGHER QUALITY THAT NOTICEABLE?

SOME SAY IT PRODUCES BRIGHTER MORE ATTRACTIVE IMAGE

Don't shout!

Photo Paper Pro is excellent on Canon printers, try a small pack and see how you get on.

Frankly I loved the quality of High Gloss Film - it was flimsy so not good for handing around, but if you are going to frame it - fabulous. Canon appear to have discontinued it.

Never had a problem with the Plus Glossy paper.. but I was printing similar images out on the Plus and the Pro paper this weekend... The Pro is just amazing. A step up from the Plus. I would say to definately try a bit of it.

It's pricer, but the results are worth it.

I TOOK YOUR ADVICE WENT AHEAD & ORDERED THE PRO PAPER FROM BUY.COM TO TEST AGAINST THE PLUS PAPER

$11.00 15 SHEETS $0.73 EA NO SHIPPING OR TAX

BECAUSE OF THE HIGH SHIPPING COST THE TOTAL PRICE AT AMAZON WAS ALMOST TWICE AS MCU

$20 15SHEETS $1.33 EA


FOR SOME REASON IT SAID ON THE CARTON THAT IT AS FOR ANOTHER PRINTER - A CANNON BUBLEJET _____ I FORGOT THE NUMBER
MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?

The paper package tries to list the printers it works with but as Canon have made many printers over the years that becomes a long list. So long as you are using a paper the printer driver knows about, it will work. Photo Paper Pro definitly works with all the current printers!

Photo paper plus definitely good stuff.

Kodak 190gsm glossy I haven't had good experience with - skin tones came out muddy and yucky.

Any infor on Australian or international sources of good priced Canon paper appreciated ($A30 for 20 A4 sheet ain't exactly good value to me).
