Re: Inkjet vs chemical prints

heres my take, i sell around 1000 portraits a year and have always got them professionally printed. 4 months ago i bought a canon pro 10s printer. picked up some ilford gallery smooth pearl the other day and just printed an identical image ,the image i printed was a very hard print to print but the pro10s just knocked the socks off the pro lab print. the reds and skin tones are vibrant and the black costume detail is first class. so this year i will be printing my own prints, and i can print them for the same price as the lab. i have had a print in the car in direct sunlight for 4 months now using epson paper and the print is as good as the day it was printed. the life of the canon pigments should last 100 years.
