Bought some Canson Baryta for my 3880. I have read in a couple places (not n this forum) that the paper thickness should be set to 0.4mm and Gap to "wide".
I have measured the paper with a micrometer and its almost exactly 0.3 mm thick, not 0.4. So wondering if the correct setting is really 0.3 mm and left at Auto??
It is much stiffer than Epson's Premium semi-gloss, even though they both measure 0.3mm. Manual feeding would seem the correct way to go.
A couple other questions: is the platen gap setting universal across the Epson printer line up? ie "wide" or "wider" is the same on a 3880, a 4900 and a 7900?
And, is there a downside to setting the gap wider than it needs to be by one setting, say "wide" instead of "auto"?
Adding another question: Comparing test prints of the Printer Evaluation Image V2 one on Canson Baryta and the other on Platine some startling differences (and similarities)
show clearly. Reds and greens on the test patches are very different but the section of the strawberries does not look that strikingly different. Seems strange?
How much are the color differences impacted by using the stock ICC profiles from Canson's web site? I guess what I am asking is to what extent am I comparing
the papers? Or, am I really looking at the differences in the respective profiles Canson provides for each paper on the 3880??
