I just set up....

An Epson C86 with thw MIS EZ ink set (warm tone)....all I can say is WOW !......it was painless and very very easy to use.

My first print was on Epson Enhanced Matte paper and looked awesome.

I sent a RGB (yes ...RGB...no B&W conversion needed) file ...just had to adjust the brightness to MY liking by using the sliders in the Epson driver...that was it.

My favorite fine art paper is Cranes Mueso cotton rag...but I have that on order as I'm out of it now....

It has been quite a few months ago, but I followed one thread that
discussed purchasing an Epson C84 or C86 and using the MIS inks. I
would certainly like to hear if that is still a good alternative. I
have not done anything yet. Like you, I am a bit color challanged.
Well, actully quite a bit. I have what is known as a red-green
color deficiency. But I love B&W!

The very last thing you do.... release the shutter.
