Pro-100 and Canson-Infinity Baryta Photographique

Anyone have success with this combination? I read many good things about this paper and bought a full pack along with a Canson Sampler. I should have bought the sampler first.


The weird thing is Baryta Photographique is the only paper in the entire sampler pack that gives lousy results. It's as if there is a milky white coating sitting over the picture. I'm getting richer blacks and more saturated colors from Rag Photographique - a matte paper! It's so bad, I was certain at first, I must be doing something wrong... but I've double-checked everything.


The good news is that I've found both Platine Fibre Rag and Baryta Prestige yield superior colors, saturation, and blacks -- though at a significantly greater cost that BP. (The resin coated papers in the sampler had fantastic color, but that's a very different look, of course.)

I have used it and gotten very good results.


Standard recommendstion - verify correct media type, ICC profile and be sure paper is loaded correctly. It is very hard to tell front from back with that paper. You can use the wet finger tip test - print side will be tacky to the touch.

I only recently purchased a Pro-100.


I'm currently using Canon papers.  I know Canson papers are highly regarded.  I've ordered some samplers to try.

@jrhoffman75 is one of the Pro-100 experts here in my opinon.



Edit...  I had walked away to take a call, and John already posted
