Dear Jerry Can we assume you are comparing prints in 4 colors with a 3000 (As the Fotonics are only available in CMYK at present, although Generations is available in 6 colors) Assuming this is the case I am not surprised that results with CIE/Wide Gamut space were lousy. I believe these settings are only intended for printers with a Hi-Fi/Hexachrome-style CMYKOG 6 color set. Also what kind of paper are doing your test printing on?

If so, Do you feel they are identical, or nearly so? OR does one have slightly more brilliant colors than the other? Tonight I have so far made about 20 prints, each printed with a different color space, but otherwise identical settings. I cannot BELIEVE the difference in these spaces! Some make OUTSTANDING quality prints, (NSNTC Space, sRGB space, and some are truly Lousy! (CIE space, and Wide Gamut space). I'm testing Media Streets Pigmented inks against the Fotonics. So far, the Fotonics are a little more brilliant, but using a couple of the above spaces, the pigmented Generation inks are awfully close. And the Pigmented inks are archival to over a hundred years! I still have about 20 to go. Will keep you posted. Jerry - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
