    I just found a HP printer with 4 ink tanks for bottled ink, C - M - Y and K,
    "Deskjet 5820" , available nowhere around here.
    But the ink set is available, C-M-Y named GT52 (the inks which we know and which is tested
    and K named "GT51"
    I'm not sure that it's dye or pigment based (like Canon's pigment "Text Black" beside the dye "Photo Black")
    but I hope it's dye - it could be our missing ink for Canon 5 channel printers...

    for example

    Knowing that this HP ink works relatively good and no photo black is available an idea came to my mind.

    How about mixing C, M and Y to get the black?. To achieve a deeper black adding up a little Photo Black whether it is 3rd party or OEM. Also using an OEM Canon PBK cart is an option.

    mixing CMY to black just gives you a dirty dark brown or similar, but not a very useful black, that is not an option.
    Just use a genuine Canon PBK cartridge, you are already saving on the CMY inks.

    HP is coming out with a new generation of ink tank printers - Smart Tank - in Western Europe oriented to office type applications, the printers are using CMY dye inks and a pigment black
    https://www.druckerchannel.de/artikel.php?ID=4123&t=hp_smart_tank_plus_555_und_655
    The inks of the previous printer generation GT...showed some good stability of the dye inks, I have the new inks - cyan and magenta - Series 31 - on order for a quick test
