I have recently installed a set of K7 neutral inks in my Epson R2400. I am using a hardware-calibrated Eizo CG222W (with Colormunki Photo). I have been experimenting with two different calibrations on the Eizo (5000K, 80cd/m2; 6500K, 80cd/m2)
I am already very impressed by the quality of the output I am getting with the K7 inkset, but I do have a couple of questions:
My print output holds noticeably more detail in the very dark shadows than what I am seeing on the Eizo (irrespective of whether I use the 5000K or the 6500K calibration). It is not a huge difference in the shadows, but it is noticeable. Is this normal or can I expect a better match between the two?
I would also like to generate an ICC profile to enable better soft-proofing on screen. As far as I can work out, I cannot generate a profile with my Colormunki set-up because it is only designed to work with a color inkset. If that is right, am I correct in thinking I will need to get an ICC profile made by a third party?
Many thanks for your help with these questions. I am loving these new inks!
