    Are there news groups dedicated to discussing photo printers only or is this
    the best place?

    And is anyone using the Canon i950 or i960 for Black & White printing? How
    sharp and continuous grain are the images? And do the prints still appear
    green or an actual true grayscale?

    thanks

    conventional wisdom says 6-color is not good for B&W. The printer has
    to mix colors to get gray, and people report getting color casts.

    Epson 2200 and the new HPs add a seventh color (gray), and people
    report good results.

    The BEST for B&W is "Qaud-tone", "Hex-tone", "reduced gamut" and
    various other monikers. The common idea is putting gray inks into the
    color positions.

    A good way to start learning more is to rummage around at any of the
    following (Google for the URL):

    comp.periphs.printers for a newsgroup. Quite active.
    I've had very good results on an i9100, which has much in common with
    its smaller brothers, using Ilford Galerie paper. The pearl range. No
    cast at all.
