Anyone used online B+W digital printing?

    Due to a CBA developing moment, I'm taking my digital camera out to do
    some B+W shots.
    On screen they look good - true B+W.

    But, if printed, are these likely to have a colour tinge?
    I generally use Photobox for prints, and am very happy with their colour
    service, so may go with them anyway, but has anyone any experience of
    B+W prints from a digi camera?

    Ilford print onto real (silver/gelatin) photo paper, no chance of a
    colour cast with that. I imagine that if a colour printer is used
    and they apply automatic white balance, then grey-scale should be equal
    amounts of each primary colour thus resulting in true b&w. BICBW

    Whenever I have asked Photobox a question, they have answered promptly.
    Why not e-mail them your query?

    In the absence of any real world experience, I'll be doing around 10
    pics to try it out, then going with a bigger order if it works well.

  5. Just to say, I use DSCL <> for much colour
    & B&W work. They use the Fujicolor process. Prices and service are

    I find it especially good for B&W as my colour printer gives a very
    slight magenta tone when I print mono.
