Anyone tried it yet?
I bought a box with 10 A4.
I have a Z3000. Enough for the calibration, but too small for the profile. I used Ilford profile and I made a profile with PrintFixPro too.
I'm note sure I used the best calibration parameters and I didn't had enough paper to try different calibration.
I used the black and white test print from Keith Cooper. The Ilford and PrintFixPro profile were about the same (PrintFixPro is a bit warmer). Not bad, but too much ink in the dark areas. I just change a bit the PrintFixPro profile and I have something quiet good.
I like the feeling you have when you touch the paper. Does it really look like an old silver halide paper, at least you have the feeling when you touch the paper.
I made 2 prints with real black and white photographs. Both of them had a very light gray as background. Looking carefully, on an angle I can notice some vertical marks. I don't know if it's the ink or the gloss, and I didn't have any longer paper to make an other test.
Writing my post with the print next to me, I realize I have marks (obviously gloss) on the back of the print. Time to clean the printer.
A strange thing to notice, I'm very used to print A4 with the Z3100 and I don't have trouble usually. But with this paper it's really a pain in the ass. I must do 6 or 7 try before succeeding in the loading process.
