Hi, the image from the Canon looked a little brighter on screen but I expected that although the monitor (NEC) is calibrated with Xrite i1 pro.
The Epson looks really dark on the paper (both the PPD paper and Epsons own Gloss)
The ICC profiles are according to the supplier (Photo Paper Direct UK based) are Ilford as there claim is that there papers are coated and I quote 'We use Ilford coatings on our papers'.
The ink is from Marrut.
I was looking at buying a set of original Epson inks just to see what output I get from them.
Thanks for the reply.
PS. while I was typing you asked more info.
The drivers are set on the R1900 as per the video's I have watched (many times
The paper was two fresh sheets in each printer although it looks joined on the image I just pinned them to a board to take the photo to post here.
The paper is Premium Glossy Photo Paper and to be honest I didn't realise there would be that bigger difference with that profile so back to the drawing board on that one.
