I have been using the OEM color inks for B/W prints on my 1270. After slight tweaking using color and contrast adjustment layers in PS 5.5, I get acceptable prints (to my eye), with hardly any discernible color casts. I use both EAM and Premium Luster. Only about 5% of all my printing is B/W, and all of it is for personal use. I have heard great raves for quads and hexs, yet have never seen a single print made with these inks. I am thinking strongly of getting another 1270 or 1280 to dedicate for hextone printing, but only if the differences are truly worth it. Longevity of 10 or so years is important but 100 year archival is not. So do I get a hextone system? I would like to exchange high resolution images I have printed, along with my OEM ink prints on EAM and Luster papers with people using hextones. Anyone interested into getting into a project of helping convince me of the image superiority of hextone for B/W. Please leave me a message off-list if interested. Anyone doing hextones live in the Memphis, TN area? Shilesh - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
