Canson Infinity 206211031 reviews

Platine Fibre Rag Paper (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My all around favorite paper I recently did a head-to-head comparison among papers from Hahnemujle, Canson, Moab, Epson, and Red River. What, I was looking for was a paper that gave good rich blacks, a good tonal range, and did not use optical brighteners. The Canson Platine was my final choice. As someone who generally leans toward matte papers for black and white images I was surprised to rediscover that - just like back in the old darkroom days - semiglossy fiber papers work very well with black and white images. Of course, choice of papers is very subjective and a matter of taste. This paper is definitely worth trying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best Ink Jet papers I bought this after reading an on-line review. I use this paper in my Epson 3880. Quite frankly, I was astonished at the quality of the prints. The paper is heavy (310 gm) with a slightly warm tone. It is considered a gloss finish but it has a texture and acts much more like a luster finish. Its ability to capture fine detail is just astonishing. Overnight this has become my paper of choice in this printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at First Sight I've told my wife that I've fallen totally in love with a paper. I've wanted to shift to a non-OBA paper with reasonable brightness and a touch of warmth to replicate plein air principles of warm light/cool shadows for landscapes on an Epson 3880 in ABW mode. While I'm also a fan of Harman Gloss Baryta, there is just something magical about how everything comes together with this cotton-based Canson Platine paper (I use Eric Chan's ABW ICC profile for this paper). With the right inkjet toning, it just absolutely pops. There's just a hint of structure to the stiple that, if anything, brings out the details even more with the smooth ISO 50 photographs I take with a Sigma DP1. I love the way reflections break up into a thousand points of light when you view the paper off-angle instead of seeing a big light blob. The stiple forces you to look at the paper at just the right angle, but if you go off-angle, it's still a pleasing experience. The depth and richness of the images are just magical. I'm sure there are (slightly) brighter papers, papers with (slightly) higher DMax, papers (slightly) more neutral across the entire spectrum (there is indeed a modest rise in the red for the warmish highlights), (slightly) smoother, (slightly) glossier, maybe (slightly) more detailed under a loupe. I don't care anymore. It just works top to bottom. And I can tone this paper warm or cool, it excels at both. I can make it act like Harman Baryta Warmtone (super cream) or Ilford Gallerie RC (super blue). It tones beautifully with Epson's ABW color wheel and is worth fully exploring with test patches to find the highest contrast points for your preferred tone. For example, try Hor 25 Ver -40 (fairly strong violet with purple/blue bias to complement the very slight yellow/cream cast of the paper) if you want to see the highlights and shadows pop into high relief while opening up the mid tones with just a touch of warmth. Just amazing. No problem with head strikes either, very easy to handle. I'm sold. The only downside is it's expensive, so use for treasured photographs and fine art projects that you want to last for a lifetime (or several).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plating Fibre Rag from Canson is the Black & White ticket Printing with an Epson R2880, the Canson paper is the right texture and look for the black and white image, or photograph. We shoot BW film, scan, and print. We shoot digital as well. While Baryta papers do a good job, the Canson Platine Fibre Rag is probably best for the real photography look. My printer settings are for luster surface, with Photoshop managing the color, with the Platine Fibre Rag profile supplied by Canson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to beat I have been experimenting with several different matte/fine arts, luster and glossy papers from Canson, Hahnemuhle, Museo and Inkpress on my Canon ip8720 printer, seeking alternatives for the excellent Canon Pro Platinum glossy paper I had been using. The conclusion is that: 1) Canon Pro Platinum is really good; 2) in terms of dynamic range, detail, fidelity of tone (using various appropriate default printer profiles), the Canson Platine Fibre Rag is simply in a league of its own. Only the Canon Pro Platinum approaches it, but its glossy finish puts it at a disadvantage in my view, especially if you want to frame your photos. For this paper, I use the default Pro Luster profile and get stunning results. Although I have a Spyder spectrometer to generate custom profiles, I feel no need to do so for this paper. Of course, I will still use other papers for specific needs, but this one will be my go-to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I had only one choice Platine Fibre Rag Paper is the one! Finally a paper that is 100% cotton fiber that doesn't have a warm tone. Photographic images look like photographs with the added benefit of being stable and takes pigment inks well for richness and depth. The surface is perfect and doesn't interfere yielding deep blacks and whites for a wonderful tonal scale. if I had only one choice, Platine Fibre Rag Paper would be it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paper I use this paper mostly for printing black and white film scans and I love how the paper looks. The texture is subtle but gorgeous, and it allows for really nice blacks. It is slightly off-white, which I like. It reminds me of a nicer version of Foma's Velvet darkroom paper, which was my favorite while printing in the wet darkroom. I also have used it for a few color prints but the ones I have printed don't have a wide range of colors and tones - they are more minimal so I can't really speak to how the paper does with color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Surface Ever! For anything I want to have a very long tonal scale, I turn to Platine Fiber Rag. The smooth gradation of color it produces is fantastic. It also has my favorite surface of any paper I have sampled. The thickness (though it means individually feeding the sheets is also a bonus for sending raw prints. All around a great paper.
