I’ve been using the 3800 for a while
– I found I had to calibrate it to get the soft colours out that I use
I’m now using it for negatives for
platinum and it is quite magical
The trick though is in the settings –
I use Quadtone RIP and get some excellent results – but need to adjust
each negative a little using curves
It is also excellent for overprinting with
the pigment ink – though again the issue is colour – too bright and
it looks as though the kids have been at it with felt-tipped pens!

I am so excited that the black only option works on this printer. That is all I
used on my old 2200. I am printing my step tablets on Ultrafine as I write this
Thanks all for advice

Congratulations! You'll have a lot of fun with the printer.
It appears to be such an improvement over the 2200.
I load both the Ultrafine and Pictorico on the top with no
problem. No pizza wheel marks unless I keep feeding the same sheet through
By the way, using black-ink-only works great on it - much
more smooth than on the 2200.

My Epson 3800 just came in and it is a beauty. My first color print came out
just perfect. No calibration, a supplied Epson profile, no messing around. My
question now is where should I feed the trensparency for printing negatives. I
want to print both pictorico and ultrafine. I know pictorico should be no
problem. Anybody printing ultrafine transparencied on this printer?
