    I did a search and didnt find too much on this topic.

    Can you guys recommend some good paper?

    Just picked up a Canon 9000 MkII and need to get some paper :naughty:

    Don't need the best of the best, but what have you guys had good experiences with that's not going to break the bank?

    Thanks!:x:

    what finish do you prefer?

    coated or not coated? (or can your printer do both?)

    Ive found Ilford Semi-gloss to be good for the price. I used Hahnemuhle back in the day but its too damn expensive and not worth it, imo.

    for your everyday printing, use Ilford Smooth Pearl. red box. It's really nice across the board. fingerprint/smudge resistant, not a huge amount of glare, minimal metamerism, and it's fairly cheap.

    For the reeaaly good prints, i'd use Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk. It's ridiculous. Looks like chemical darkroom paper. Just gorgeous. feels good too. you almost don't want to frame it, because you'll want people to touch it.

    and i'm not an ilford junkie either... There are lots of other amazing papers out there, but ilford is really good, and really cheap.

    lemme know if you have questions, managing high level printers is part of my job

    Ilford Gallerie Smooth Pearl

    I buy it in rolls, but theres a super B option. Amazing stuff, similar to a luster or semigloss
