In the past, I always thought no printer could match the price / performance from commercial printing companies. And I think they still can't. However, since I've joined a camera club, I tend to print single photo's much more than I used to. Up to now, I usually saved up a batch, sent that to the printer and the next day *presto* the prints fell on my doormat). Single photo print jobs tip the scale to printing at home it seems.
Anyway, I'm a sucker for B/W photography. According to printerinfo.com, the Canon Pixma Pro 9500 mark II offers the best dynamic range by far. Okay, the thing is slow as a snail but I don't care about that. What does worry me a bit though is they talk about the deep blue colors not being very good. Now, that could depend on ink / paper combination or just the printer they tested with.
Anyone here has any experience with the Canon Pro 9500II? Does it show problems with deep blue and if so, how serious are these problems?
