Are other 2000P users encountering this? I'm a wildly enthusiastic 2000p user!!! And I print primarily black-and-white prints!!! Yes, yes, I've heard about the metamerism, I've even seen fantastically depressing examples of such; however, I've only ever gotten my digital studio to produce one of those monsters. I am now becoming convinced that the metamersim (isn't it just too cool that the word itself isn't even in my spell-check? ;-) I love modern technology.) is the combined product of: original image, system, software and digital darkroom technician method. Unfortunately, for you lot, I haven't been able to spend the time necessary to compile really useful data from which to extrapolate parameters - there are quite a few variables, aren't there? I will tell you that the green tinted print I got came from a 35mm neg of Kodak's T400CN (process C-41), scanned under the "color" option and corrected with both levels and curves formulas specifically designed to eliminate colorcast. However, when I re-scanned the same neg as "grayscale" and corrected it after converting to monochrome with a custom channel mixer formula it printed a gorgeous black-and-white. Go figure. Of course I realize that the ink is part of the equation, but I now believe that there are very functional workarounds. Honestly, both my clients and I love the finished prints.
