I think only Hahnemühle has more than one, but then I have a feeble memory...
Still, there are a lot of variations and usually a given brand may make more than one type of Baryta paper.
From the comparisons I read so far, they all are variations of the semigloss type and one would need to do a personal comparison to see the exact differences.
Yes, that article was sort of the trigger for me to try it. Plus, an outlet from boesner.com (artist supply) is close to my home and stocks Canson and my experience with Hahnemühle has been mixed so far.
After my reading, especially in Luminous Landscape, I came to Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique as the paper I would try first.
Hmm, Chris Wahl has a 2200 bought in Germany. And he never complained about bronzing. (His comparison prints made me buy the R3000 and use Museo textured rag for BW)
All the reviews say that the Epson 2200 (2100 in Europe) has massive amounts of bronzing when printing on glossy paper.
Most glossies are less than 1GBP per A4 page in a 10 pack. So a few experiments are pretty much affordable.
I've never tried myself - could not find a reason to invest money to prove that it would not work well, as trusted reviewers state.
One of the key reasons that I obtained a pinter was to see the effect of different papers myself. So I try quite a few papers just for kicks.
Right now I am discovering uses for a TECOO metallic paper, which only fits a small number of subjects, but for those where it fits, it is quite pleasing. Definitely more interesting than regular glossy which I rarely use.
Hmm, I don''t have a 1.1 comparison. I discovered it through a series of test prints that Chris sent me and its blacks felt deeper than on the Barytas in that series.
I might try the Museo Textured Rag if I can find it at a reasonable price. What other papers could it be said to be similar to?
This is what I did and was blown away by the colors. Much more vibrant than I was used to from other matte papers.
The Canson BFK maybe is a bit out of the price range I would consider for most print work, but maybe I could try some small sizes just for the sake of trying and then if it is really so good use it on "special" prints.
But yes, it is in a non trivial price range.
The manual feed is for cut paper from the front (works very well).I thought that the R3000 could use manual feed from the back to avoid this problem with thick papers?
The spindles on the R3000 are very small, so you will have to deal with a heavy curl. The main reason why I did not even look for roll paper for my R3000.
The roll paper curl issue comes from thin diameter of the roll. The rolls for the R3000 are thinner than for the bigger printers.
Recheck. Basically all of them have profiles for the R2200.
PS: I forgot to mention when I said that the 2200 is old, that none of the baryta papers have profiles for it. All these papers came out when the 2200 has already been superseded by newer models and the paper manufacturers have not bothered.
After all, the R2200 was only discontinued within the last year and the Barytas have been out for several years.
In addition, it takes only three A3+ sheets to generate a very good profile with ArgyllCMS and the ColorMunki (the Xrite software is a joke though).
