I was wondering if anyone has used Hahnemuhle's 310 gsm Photo Rag Satin paper ? Is it good for color and B&W exhibition prints?

Are Hahnemuhle's IOCC profiles for this paper any good?

To me, the paper has a weird sheen. I much prefer the Photo Rag Baryta. Hahnemuhle's profiles are terrible--really bad. With a custom profile the results are spectacular. Beware that I've experienced four rolls for Fine Art Baryta and PRB with black specks on the paper. I've wasted a lot of ink and paper reprinting. I'm going to try Ilford's GFS soon.

hassiman,

I'ts not a favourite of mine either, and I speak as a big fan of their Torchon and Bamboo papers.

Its not a brilliant white even though it contains optical brighteners, but nor is it off white, it has a texture and a sheen, but there again comes across as neither fish nor fowl.

For exhibition prints, I'd suggest having a look at Torchon, a mat paper with a strong texture; Photo Rag, a mat paper with a smooth finish, great for subtle misty shots; Bamboo, a cream mat paper that produces beautiful warm monochromes. When I want a highgloss paper, I tend to stick to Epson Premium Glossy.

Museum Etching and Albrecht Durer can be good, but it depends on the image. unlike yogibear, I have found their profiles very good on my R2880.

Here in the UK, Hahnemuhle sent me a free A4 pack of their full range, including two Canvas's. See if they will do the same for you.
