Yes, Elizabeth. Thanks for your comments.
I'd like to commission one of the LL forum members to make a custom ICC profile for the 4900/Photo Rag Satin combination. The Epson canned profile is not at all correct on our 4900, in either MK or PK instances. Using the Epson 9900 profile instead, again on our 4900, is 1000 miles better. So something is not right.
If anyone experienced in profiling is interested, I'd like to pursue some profiles. PM or email is fine. To keep postage costs in line, it may make most sense to deal with a consultant in the continental US, although I do recognize and admire the deeply eminent knowledge of LL forum members who are not in the US.
I'll say that the 4900 results for a few other Hahnemüle MK papers are just spectacular, to my eyes. I'm using only the canned Hahnemüle profiles, so better results may be possible, but the prints on William Turner, German Etching and Photo Rag 308 are great. Turner and German really driver the painterly look, but are not undetailed in my mind. Museo Max is also good, and very vivid. Canson BFK Rives, my historic favorite MK paper on the Z3200, is giving horrible results with the Canson canned profile, so I'll pursue a custom profile for the BFK Rives/4900 combo as well.
Thanks for the interest.
