    HP Advanced Profiler any good

    I have a HP Z2100 photo printer and I use the onboard spectrophotometer for making icc profiles. It seems though that this profiles have problems with gradation quality. Possibly the 475 patch is quite good for serious work.

    Does anyone has it and do you believe that it makes oa difference in quality or should i Buy i1 Photo Pro when it comes out in stores?

    it works perfect..

    the big disadvantage is the enormous size of the patches!.. waist of paper and ink.

    i1 uses only half!

    I used to use HP Advanced Profiler with a couple of z6100's and never really cared for the results either. The process was slow and the patches were large. I had better results using more, smaller patches for an iSis in ProfileMaker. HP's was neat in that I could upload the profile into the printer so "it just worked" but I think the results were really limited by the crummy on-board spectro.

    funny thing tho.. i just printed an atkinson target thru APS.. then saved the data.. and calculated 2 profiles with profilemaker, croma and classic.. and one with APS..

    and APS got smoother transitions then profilemaker..

    Well I thought so.

    The results that APS gave me in profiling Professional Mat Canvas where smoother than PM5.0.10.
    And also it gave me better results through soft proof.

    blues

    pay attention to the blues on canvas. usually they turn out purple.
    look for bright red as well. usually they turns out dull.
    gradations are easy when blues are purple and reds dull...
