Hi all,

I have just bought the R800 a couple of days ago, updating my old C70 which I was very happy with, but stopped working. The R800 seems a very complex machine and certainly came with a lot of software.

My reason for buying this particular printer was the print quality and the cd printing capability.

In May I will be taking part in a photocompetion at a local Show, mainly plant photos and the last few years I often ended up with second price :sad:
I hope my new printer can change that :-)

Any advice on which settings to use for outdoor plant photography would be very much appriciated.
I am planning to use Epson photo paper, which one would I best use there?

At the moment I am trying my leftover Kodak paper to see how things work. The very first photo came awful, looking red and blue, but the second wasn't too bad, just not really the same colours as my computer screen, is there a possibility to make them work together better?

It seemed to me the photo was very pale and the green not as vibrant as in photos from the old C70.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Greetings from

I just stumbled upon this post, sorry it is so late. After reading your problem, I feel it may be the paper. I've used Kodak paper with my Canon printer and the prints came out awful. I would stick with Epson paper for the best results.
