Are there any generic inks that truly match OEM?

there just aren't any ink sets that match the Canon OEM, all 3rd party ink sets that I have tested shift the gamut. IS was the closest to OEM. Otherwise you need to generate custom print profiles.

I think that this has been brought up countless times here on DPR that if you are extremely serious about photo printing you definitely need to buy profiling equipment for the monitor and printer, and great editing software. The ColorMunki profiles both the monitor and printer for about $350.

Even if you use OEM inks and papers there is a difference if you cutom profile them, the gradients are better.
