i hope so...although I am hoping it is user error too!, I print via PS, selecting box indicating same profile, using canon pro paper, when the new box opens showing printer I select all the corresponding media types and enable colour management, ticking the box to say using icc profile.. hit the tit and get very frustrated!!

Agree, the S9000 canon is a very good printer. Despite the fact that I have stopped using desktop printers, the canon was a real workhorse. Fitted with the Lyson external ink system it becomes even better, both on cost and quality.

Gary, I've just read a couple of reviews of the i9100 (including one on Steve's Digicams which is a site I rate) and they rave about the printer.

One thing it points out is the settings helper, which recommends the configuration for a given job and paper type. Have you had a look to see what this says?

Also, have you tried it without the ICC management enabled?

I thought I might add that I have the 2100, had it for about a year now and it is such a wonderful printer...I like to use ilford printazia, fine art matt paper for special greetings cards 1 a sheet approx and ilford printazia, photo pearl paper for prints....don't get the glossy! It just doesn't dry! I made an expensive mistake with that one!

As for the ink, nobody has mentioned this place
I always get my ink from them....they range in price from 8.99 to 9.99 per cartridge...they do take about a week to deliver though....come from Guernsey no less!

Marianne - what glossy paper are you using? I've used Fuji, Ilford and Olmec and not had a problem with any of them drying instantly - it is the 'premium' equivalent in each case.

Ilford Classic Glossy and Pearl doesn't work propErly with the 2100. If you want to use Ilford paper then make sure it's the Smooth Glossy or Pearl.

I see are doing the 2100 for 449 now.
