Hello John and Neil,
Thanks for your thoughts. We can only hope that Canon releases the Media Edit Tool, or at least publishes the ink settings for each media type. What, for instance, is the difference between Special 5, and PPP-SG?
Neil, I think that Canon DID mean high end papers, and not plain paper or such, but they do list matte papers among those that can be used for calibration.
I gather from your post that the calibration routine is something less than a linearization, but then, what is it? If it is checking densities, won't these be different with different papers? Suppose I use Lumijet Ultragloss to do a calibration, and then a year and 5 liters of ink later, I decide to do another: must I use the Ultragloss to make my original profiles good again? Or would the Harman do? If the calibration is less than a linearization, what then is being set?
