I shoot mostly wildlife and a few (very few) family shots.
I shoot with 10D & 20D cameras and profile the monitor and paper. I have very few problems printing what I see on the monitor.
I had a problem after period of not using the printer for several weeks. The problem was solved by replacing ink cartridges and reprofiling everything.
I print on Epson Premium Luster and Enhanced Matte. I prefer the Premium Luster and use it for 8 1/2 X 11 and 13 X 19 prints.
I'd buy this baby again in a heart beat.
