All these, printers, plus larger dot printers like the 3000, use the same dithering resolution of 720 x 1440. So, as the dots get smaller, the space between them gets larger, and actually blending the dots on many tones ceases, causing the visible (or magnifiable) bands. Improved dithering patterns helps with this, but as you point out, it is clearly visible in magnified prints, on many papers. Printhead problems can increase this problem to the point it becomes visible to the naked eye. C. David Tobie Design Cooperative CDTobie@designcoop.com - Turn off HTML mail features.
