Question about Pentax Cameras
I have problems printing what I see on my monitor screen, or in my camera screen. I have calibrated my computer monitor, and I have tried 3 different printers.
It doesn't happen all the time.
Could this be a camera problem?
It's not likely to be a camera problem, in fact it's highly unlikely.
The big issue with printing colour is (as you've found) matching what you see on your monitor to what comes out on the paper. If you are serious about printing then you need to profile your system. I'm guessing that when you say you calibrated your monitor you just did a simple grey point adjustment to set the gamma. That's all very well but the printer is a completely separate item. It doesn't know that you adjusted the grey point and so it carries on as before (nor is there any way of it knowing). Your printer has to be set up as well - and it has to be set for whatever ink and paper combination you are using - and it will be different for each different type of paper.
If you look in the small ads in the more serious photo mags you should find adverts for companies who will provide you with profiling services.
There is a system called 'Colorsync' which is supposed to automatically do this for you. It works for some but not for others.
