Digital Printing Viability for Commercial Offset Printers

Black and White photography is not an isolated flare-up in a space where color is considered tendentious. I foster the genre for its classic looks, its ability to transport the viewer to another space and time and for the illusion of an experience sans pareil. Yet the gray matter of the medium is elsewhere. In the final unveiling- The Print.
Black and White printing has had its terrible cataclysmic resurgence when the digital format prints came into being with the insinuations de trop a la ‘purposeful’ monochrome grading that could not be wished away. Desktop printers did justice to a great extent provided one knew where to tweak.
The Canon DreamLabo 5000 has changed the perceptions of the commercial justice to print seekers like me who were reeling under the subcurrent of inexplicable tonal overkills when a supposedly Black and White file was subjected to ink matter. The results under the default settings of this printer– I must add here–only if you know your Blacks and the Whites— can produce some strikingly dramatic seamless integration of grays- hitherto unseen on printers of such a ranking. I had the pleasure to see in print some selected frames from my Black and White work that I had cataloged up during the past two decades and more – shot with the film cameras, the humble 5 megas of the early days to the current super-resolution medium format. And the footprints have been telling. It takes some insight to shoot in color with a Black and White archival spin-off in mind. And I for one trust that in Black and White, be it the shoot or the print- there is no place to hide. If you are looking for that despotic blacks and the 10th zone in your print, the Canon DreamLabo 5000 is the true stress buster. Trust me.
