Well, I just put an order in for a K7 Neutral system and you shipped it out yesterday.
I understand the advantage that Pro offers with its ability to tone the print and produce the desired results no matter what paper is used. And the advantage of one pass gloss.
But at the same time I have been told by Jon himself that K7 delivers the best tonality, when printing big and for the past 10-15 years the mantra has been 7 is better than 4.
I guess the question is how much better is 7 than 4 inks? And will it only show up if you’re printing something like a 40x40 inch portrait that predominantly features delicate whites or highly detailed shadows? Seems to make sense to me that having more shades of gray would give an advantage in either case. You may not see it at 11x14, but you probably will at 36x36 or larger.
Judging by the chatter on the forums am not alone in finding a lot of this K6/K7 vs Piezo Pro information confusing and at times contradicting itself.
I am fine to be limited to one or two glossy papers, as long as K7 NEU comes out neutral and the paper is similar in character to a traditional fiber silver print.
I understand that you formulated K7 NEU to be neutral on matte Hahnemuhle Photo Rag. Can you please tell me what glossy paper it will print neutral on?
If there is no glossy paper that K7 NEU will print neutral on then I guess I’ll just ship the K7 NEU system back to you and exchange it for a Piezo Pro system, but I need this question finally settled.
