Kodak Premium Picture Paper at 50c/ A4 sheet - good deal?

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Chris McMahon, Nov 10, 2003.

  1. I noticed in the current Officeworks catalog that they have Kodak
    Premium Picture Paper A4 50 sheet packs for $49.98, with a buy 1 get 1
    free offer. So 100 sheets / $50, or 50c/sheet.

    I normally use Canon paper with my S750/i865 so was wondering if it's as
    good a deal as it sounds.

  2. After a visit to google it seems that Kodak and Canon are like oil and
    water. A lot of people seem to have trouble with Kodak's paper on Canon

    I think I'll stick to Canon.

  3. yep, unfortunately kodak and canon "do not mix". i tried with my s9000, and
    the results were *not* pretty. the best value for money IMO is ilford
    galerie classic- either gloss or satin. heavyweight, sharp, colourful, fast
    drying, long print life apparently, for about 83c per sheet (pack of 30
    costs $25)

  4. You'll find the kodak paper is passable for colour on the S750, and
    not good at all with the i865... print B&W to it and you'll have a
    definite blue colour cast in a few days...

    If you want dependable results, PR101 is the way to go, with PP101 a
    good close second...

    I initially had terrible results with Kodak on my s9000 - the ink would form
    globs in areas with large total ink percentages. However, I had 100 or so
    sheets of the damn stuff, so I've been using it for the odd non-critical
    print and with the settings on High Gloss Photo Film I get fairly good
    results, unless the picture is overly saturated.

  6. Any one tried Kodak on the Hewlett Packards ??

  7. Went looking for an Australian source for ilford and game upon this:

    Opposite ilford galerie classic;
    "Colour stability with a traditional finish, 240gsm
    Designed for demanding high speed dye based inkjet printers (not
    compatible with pigment inks)."

    Since Canon used pigment based inks for their 3eC/M/Y (s750) and
    6C/M/Y/Bk (i865) cartridges, wouldn't this be a problem?

    Is this from Madsens or Ilford?

    The Ilford paper looks good much better than Epson (prints off the Epson
    1270 and 1290)

    I would try the combinations and don't believe all what's written.

  9. Both. Ilford themselves also warn that it's not suitable for pigment


    Pigment ink?
    Like your reply? :)

    Unless they offer a sample pack, I don't think I'll be buying multiple
    $30 packs just to try it out.

    Have read what Jens, (this is typical of him), has to say about filters
    - on his filter site? If you went into his shop to buy a particular
    item he will show you everything else. Don't expect to leave within the
    parking limit time. Bit of a local legend down here.

    Hence the comment.

  11. Kodak works like a dream on an HP DJ 3820... that's as far as I tested
    it on HP...
