I can’t tell what is causing white and dark edges on high contrast areas on my newly converted R3000.They look like over sharpening artifacts, but I do not apply any additional sharpening out of camera. No sharpening adjustments in Lightroom and no sharpening is applied on TIFF output. Here is an example print along with the original file. This is at 100% and you can see the white highlights on the thumb.
I looked back at my images and do not see this effect on ABW prints before the conversion. The printer has been cleaned with piezoflush and there are no gaps in the nozzle pattern. Solid patches print fine, all channels are working. When printing in portrait orientation, the highlights mostly appear on the top side. When printing in landscape, the artifacts rotate with the image and appear on the left side. I can reproduce this on all prints, but can’t figure out the cause. The print head alignment has been done several times and I get solid boxes without stripes in the 5-7 boxes. Has anyone seen this before? Is it a hardware problem?
