Dear All,
I imagine that the question has been partially addressed earlier but forgive me and let me ask this:
I recently consider to use transparency film (pictorico OHP) to print my negs with K3 ultrachrome inks from epson. I had a test wedge chart printed on a 9600 epson printer. The setting used were 1440 dpi. I was very dissapointed by the resulting visible ink dropplets in almost every shade. I doubt that the use of the 2800 dpi print setting would solve it ?
Is the 9600 Epson printer of an older technology than the "recent" R2400 or R1800 ?
I would love to go for digital negs only if there are no visible inkjet artifacts like uneven ink drying or visible ink dropplets or any sort of banding. Can anybody give an input on this ?
Many thanks,
