Use QuadBlack ink from Lyson. Website: " lyson.com "
It is possible to switch between the color cardridges and the B&W cardridges with a lot of cleaning between.
I have converted my Epson 890 in to B&W and use a different printer for colors.
The results are phantastic. This is a real MUST for professional B&W prints.
: I have just purchased the Canoscan 4000. I have been scanning black & white negs and printing on an Epson 1280. All my prints have a green cast to them. Does anyone have any tips on how to remedy this. Thanks.
: This is a result of the Epson printer printing black and white using color inks. You can profile your printer and the cast may go away, though on mine it just shifted twords red. You can also use only black ink to print, though the detail will not be as good as using all the colors. If you use black ink only, make sure you print at 2880.
