A fl ink only print from a gray scale image file is then limited to just the number of ink drops which can be applied from the fl ink, approximately by 1/6 of those available to make a full color print.
Unfortunately, even though the printer driver sends commands to the printer to lay down equal amounts of each color of ink to produce a range of neutral grays, there is enough variation in these mass produced machines that the amounts of each color of ink are not "exactly" applied to the paper.

 The Canon i960 Ink-Jet Printer
            The ink-jet printer was introduced to the consumer market in the late 1980s despite having been invented by Siemens in 1977; other companies such as Canon and Epson trailed by only a few years in their own developments.
  While the ability of consumers to purchase the ink-jet printer was not always strong, the demand for these printers certainly was not weak; dot-matrix printers, ones that used ink-ribbons, were used by all for printing in the 1980s, but they were never well-liked due to their slow speeds and poor quality.

 Invisible Ink for Ink-jet Printers   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The UB physicists have proven a theoretical concept and a design for a potential ink-jet printer that could make ink drops as much as 100 times smaller than the size that is possible with today's best ink-jet printers, making them invisible to the naked eye.
But because the printers use a nozzle to spray ink drops onto the paper, the drops can only be as small as the size of that nozzle.
Technology based on this research would also allow drops of ink to come out of a printer at variable speeds, eliminating the need for expensive, specially coated papers that are necessary with current ink-jet printers.

Although other printers in this group might print slightly crisper text or cleaner graphics, the i850 was good at printing both types of documents, and it produces amazing photo prints, even with its limited four-ink palette.

But on matte paper, this printer does a very fine job, so if you prefer a matte finish, the C82 is a great choice.
