Re: UPDATE4! Revenge? + question regarding tray

My suggestion for you is to choose a couple of papers that seem to "Play Well" with your R3000 and stick to those. I would rather be a master of a few paper / printer combinations that I know work 100%.

Seems most of you HMuhle papers do not seem to get along well with the R3000

I would also sugest you move your printer to position where you can use the rear sheet feeder and try it out. You will love it. I have feed thick Canson regular thick ( don't even know the thickness ) Water color paper meant for actual WC painting on both my PRO3800 and R2000 via the rear sheet feeder. Perfect results.

There some papers I have tried that simply allow the pigment ink to float right on top even more than others, then add to that the more textured surface of most baryta papers and you have a condition of raised hills and valleys. The High spots can very easily be scratched either from the head itself or from rough handling.

My R2000 allows me to feed ANY papers either from the top feeder or rear sheet feeder which I teld to use more than any other method of paper feeding. Everytime I have attempted to feed anything less that 250 gram paper through the front tray I end up with a blurry and somewhat semared edges. When I feed poster board thorugh the front feeder I get perfectly sharp graphics and images.
