    Hi all

    Can anyone recommend some nice quality photo paper at a decent price for my canon iP4200?

    I bought some cheapo 260g stuff off ebay but the quality is pretty poor with the paper causing bubbles in the ink.

    many thanks :)

    Depends what you're looking for. The absolute best I have come across are Hahnemulle fine art papers. These are all textured to some extent and might not be exactly what you're looking for. They give a painting kind of finish, and they are also a bit expensive, though worth every penny when you print that gorgeous landscape.

    For a more standard look (and price), my favourite is Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl. Its a semi-gloss really good quality paper. Most people printing digitally in my camera club use this one.

    Yep Ilford is a good choice. I also use Fujifilm paper, which seems to be better than Epson, Canon stuff etc.
