Prints a tad dark on 3800 and HFA Pearl paper
Jul 9, 2007

Hi,

I get excellent results out of my Epson 3800 with the Hahnemuele Photorag 308 paper. You can see my workflow here:

Recently I moved, for a different project, to the new Fine Art Pearl paper (285gr). I tried to use the Hahnemuele profiles and the Booksmartstudio ones. Results are NOT good in the dark zones. To be clear: there is no difference in the printout btw an RGB black 0,0,0 and a RGB 15,15,15. These differences are clearly displayed on my monitor... I tried also to print using Colorbyte Imageprint RIP (demo version) without any significative differences. Only way to obtain some variation btw the blaks on the print is to adjust the Color Density around -25% / -30%. Is this behavior normal on the Hahnemule Fine Art Pearl? Any experiences as this one?
