For those who were at the pub Tuesday before last where I took some prints in for scrutiny from DSCL and the colours were found to be wrong, I just picked some up from CC Imaging and there wasn`t much difference to be honest maybe just slightly brighter but it was hardly noticeable in very good light.  It wasn`t really worth the price difference so will probably increase the contrast slightly and use DSCL.  The only other option I can think of is buy a printer and print my own!!  HMMMM.

Interesting info Ian. Pity we can't have a "Club" pro printer. Could all chip in for usage/ink/paper etc. Not quite as simple as that though.........

Hi Ian 
 Have you compared your old prints from CC with the ones you have just had 
 done, if so how do the new ones hold up against the old .They may have always
 been the same quality. We were comparing prints to tablet in the Pub,Maybe
 that as some bearing on quality.

It`s difficult to say really Steve as the images were different.  One thing I will say is that as soon as I collected them I looked at the Reed Bunting image that I also had done at DSCL and I thought the one printed at CC looked way better than the other from memory, but when I got the prints home I had real trouble telling them apart.  Either I didn`t pick the right image to compare or I have just got it into my head that DSCL are worse, for no good reason!  I`m going to order a few more images from DSCL and I may try another comparison.

As a side issue I downloaded DSCL`s profiles on a previous order and have been working to them ever since so in theory they should be a match.  Further investigation needed I think.
