My Girlfriend will be happy, I will have to keep my two printers ^^Your ET8550 will shoot the Pro 10 down on glossy paper
I can not compare it to something else however I do agree that I did struggle a lot to have a usable profile. Now I have the technique how to make them and it works perfectly (again I don't have a i1 pro to compare). My custom profiles on Fotospeed paper give a much more pleasing look on Fotospeed paper than the generic ones they make.Custom profiles made with Spyderprint ... Caveat emptor. !
One day I will do a video how to make them.
I use colorsync on my mac to see if the shape of the profile is nice and smooth, I also check carefully the patch reading. But I don't have more knowledge how to check them properly.I only can confirm that profiles made with Spyderprint can be totally wrong, and the user does not have any tools to verify a profile for consistency.
I would recommend to get larger cartridges of Canon OEM inks and use them for refill your Pro1/Pro 10 cartidges.
This is something that I am interested in. I see that precision colors sell OEM ink for the canon pro 1000 and above, unfortunately, that's not cheap to get them in Europe. Do you know if there is someone selling a bottle of OEM ink for the pro-1000+.
Did anyone tested the pro 10 with inks of the pro 1000? will it be as good as pro 10 OEM ink?
then another crasy question, I saw that the canon GX7050 uses pigment inks, maybe we can use those inks to fill the pro 10 cartridges and still have good results?
