I recently bought a Canon Pixma Pro 9500 to print B+W images. So far, I've tried Ilford papers, in particular, the Ilford Galerie Gold Fibre Silk which has gotten high marks from some people.
My prints are turning out to be darker than what is seen on screen. I've gone and bought a ColorMunki and profiled my screen and printer, but the prints are still dark.
I contacted Ilford and they suggested dimming screen luminance using a third party app such as Shades.
I'm just wondering if other people have more success in getting screen matched prints with their Pro 9500. What papers are you using? I've heard that Ilford tends to produce darker prints. I haven't tried the Canon Fine Art papers and I'm about to get some.
