On my Z3100, 44, I've been trying to get something like the Kodak Endura Lustre (RA4) paper our Pro Lab uses. I've got the HP Premium Instant Dry Satin Photo Paper (Q7994A) 36inch. It's okay and the prints look good however the HP watermark and also the fact the paper is slightly "transparent" isn't so great.
Would have liked a roll of the HP Pro Satin (not instant dry) but as mentioned, it's only in 24 inch at present and hard to actually get!
The lustre or semi-matte or satin finish (all similar) we require is purely for our portrait style photos. I may try the Epson lustre or even Kodak makes a 260gsm lustre although both are way more expensive than the HP (Q7994A)!
Anyone found any other papers they can recommend that aren't too expensive for , (good but everyday) lab style portrait printing?
I may consider getting the Canson photo satin, Crane silver Rag or the HP premium pro if there are not real alternatives!
