Well, I bought a slightly used IP8500 on Ebay, and LOVE IT! I've been testing on Kodak Ultima Colorlast, trying all the printer settings, even tried the icm for Pro paper.
Only thing I'm finding is some of my water shots and sky are printing lighter blue than I want. I've tried both OEM and after market cartridges. I don't know how to build an ICM, so...
What color "sliders" do I play with to make Blues deeper? Do I just bump up black, or and other colors to it?
All my other colors look pretty dead on. In fact I'm not use to seeing such clarity. I reprinted some pics I have and didn't even realize there were green trees in the background! Truly amazing printer!
