    These folks have the first of a multi-part review of the Kodak 5300
    printer;

    http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRINT/K5300/K5300.HTM


    All the 5xxx series printers include a scanner. It's sold as an
    all-in-one. The scanner bit wasn't significant to me but that review
    has this as one step in the setup;


    Calibrating the Printer. The LCD will tell you the printer has to be
    calibrated and what to do about it (press the Start button). Oddly,
    the calibration image is printed on 4x6 photo paper.

    Once printed, you place it face down aligned to the front right
    corner of the scanner glass and lower the scanner lid. Then press
    Start again to scan the target and calibrate the scanner.

    (this is done before teh prnter is connected to a compuer, so it's all
    internal logic.)

    Does this mean that the printer can effectively make adjust for paper
    and ink to make it's photoshop profile dead-on? I assume it has, or
    will have a PS profile.
