Who said anything about Ilfochromes? I was comparing the 3000's output to the 1200's output.

Once again, who said anything about an Ilfochrome or an LJ print? The comparison was with a 1200. And I stand by my original opinion. If a 6 ink 3000 that utilized the same print technology as the 1200 were available, it wouldn't buy you much in most 16x20 inch applications. -- Mike Greer Explore potential income opportunities with Greer and Associates at http://www.ibocity.com/greeraa.
