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

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. -- ------------------------------------------------------ Chris McMahon Email=net.au Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia GMT:+10:00 -------------- REMOVE "VIRUS" TO REPLY ---------------...

    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
    printers.

    I think I'll stick to Canon.

    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)

    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...

    Cheers,
    Stuart

    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.

    Went looking for an Australian source for ilford and game upon this:
    http://www.madsens.com.au/cat2001/03.ilford.htm

    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.

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

    http://www.ilford.com/html/us_english/prod_html/galerie/htm/prod/cgp.htm
    http://www.ilford.com/html/us_english/prod_html/galerie/htm/prod/cpp.htm

     

    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.

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