    I have a Canon 5200F scanner and a Canon i560 printer.

    In the driver for the scanner - ScanGear - under Preferences, there's a page
    for Colour Settings. The main choices are:

    - Recommended
    - Canon ColorGear
    - None

    Under Canon ColorGear, you can choose what appear to be colour profiles for
    the scanner and the printer.

    I'm wondering whether I would get the best colour fidelity if I explicitly
    choose a profile for the scanner and the printer - especially because
    they're both from the same manufacturer.

    The manual is useless, and so is Canon online support. I asked them about
    this, and their reply amounted to, 'we don't know enough to answer your

    Is anyone familiar with ScanGear and/or ColorGear?
