The 2200 is IMHO, the best all-round printer. I have made very nice
digital negatives on Pictorico, the turn right around and make color
prints; lately I have been trying out an inkset from MIS, Ultratone 7.
It makes beautiful variable tone archival B&W/sepia prints with very
little fuss, and you can swap the color and UT7 inksets back and forth
easily. Actually, I'm thinking of getting another 2200 so I can have one
for MIS and the other for color prints/digital negatives.
