This is hard to demonstrate because my screen images are good, its the print that is sub-standard and I don't have a high end scanner to work with.

I bought a Canon Pixma 9000 not to long ago and have been having issues with good color rendition. I'm using a Huey to calibrate the monitor a new HP 22 inch. I've been careful to ensure I am not double profiling, I've been using Canon papers (just to level the field somewhat). Canon inks and I've never refill.

I have tried both Photoshop (CS3) managing the colors and picking the paper/icc, and I have allowed the printer to control.

I'm still getting an orangish over saturation, and occasionally when the shadow is a light shadow (shadow line on the neck or the hairline, today the underside of a rose petal that had the sun illuminating it) it has a greenish tint to it. Desaturation turns into a guessing game since I am not getting what I see to begin with.

To date I have tried the US Default, a Custom default using RGB, a Huey default, and sRGB.

I keep the camera pretty much flat line. I shoot in RAW, usually with S or A priority. I've used a grey target in some shots as well.

Anyone else using this printer to satisfaction? What kind of settings are you using. Mind you I cannot afford the high end calibration equipment and software the pro's use, I am doing this for the love of it. That one beautiful moment when the shutter drops and you capture that take your breath away shot is still eluding me.

Thanks, this is probably an inappropriate request, but it's another channel.
