Very sharp contrasts
For our two books, we therefore opted for a finish on matte paper. The first is made using silver print, the second contains printed photos. In both cases, the photos are well inserted, and no major problems are detected. Having no smudges, they are very clear, with bright colors and a dive at the rendezvous.
In the case of printed photos, the traces of the printer’s screen are nevertheless detected by scanning them. Particularly visible on large areas of color, it is however difficult to detect with the naked eye. The silver print is quite remarkable, with a high level of sharpness, which is not always the case with silver and in the case of marked contrasts.
In addition, both books offer excellent colorimetry. The average Delta E values recorded by our probe are among the best in our comparison. Thus, on silver prints, we note a Delta E of 5.5. The green shades are particularly well rendered, as are the blue ones. The digital print is doing even better, with an average Delta E of 4.4, very close to the expected value of 3. Several shades are below the 3 mark, while others are close to it. A very good performance.
