Best gloss paper IP 5200?

Discussion in 'Australia Photography' started by Robert Wilson, Oct 30, 2005.

  1. Can anyone recommend a good source of quality gloss paper for my Canon
    IP5200?

    The paper supplied with the printer was excellent, but a bit pricey.

    I prefer a bright rather than soft look. I am printing 6x9 size.

    Thanks for any advice.

    the canon paper has a very nice, but also a very fragile surface and as you
    say is amoung the more expensive papers.


    by FAR the nicest paper of all though is the Ilford high gloss media
    <http://www.ilford.com/html/us_english/prod_html/galerie/htm/prod/shg.htm>
    and is surprisingly cheap given it's a polyester base material and not
    paper.. given the relative cost of the old cibachrome over RA4 papers it
    *should* be 4 times the price but it's only fractionally more expensive
    than the rest of the ilford range

    the next best paper I've found for a clean gloss is the Konica QP paper, but
    it's not widely distributed in aus (perth at least) and continued attempts
    to glean info about it's distribution from the Koni rep proved futile.

    It'd be work buying the ilford paper and cutting it down to size with a
    rotary trimmer if it's not available in small sizes.
