    actually the best print will be from a properly calibrated epson photo printer on epson photo matt paper.
    but the general fuji lab prints are also ok.
    sigh.

    I saw those photographers' work in exhibition which are framed up, are those usually photolab prints or printer photo? They have very good saturation and colour and usually glossy to give the colour look more vivid. Anyone knows?

    nothing beats a lambda print or lightjet print. A few photogs have now gone the inkjet route for exhibits and they look swell as well, but thats when u use the top epson/hp printers. I personally prefer lightjet for exhibitions.

    check the yellow pages for instant digital. Fotohub does it too at its Raffles Place branch. Instant digital is my preference for their friendly service.

    Default printing/processing technique

    Lightjet is using red/green/blue lasers for imaging on photographic paper. Hence the final images must be chemical processed, right?

    Fujifim digital print is in fact chemically processed, is the exposure method different from Lightjet?

    How is Kodak digital print? Using Dye-sublimation technique?

    Any comment?

    Cheers

    The lightjet is just another Lambda type setup, both use 36 bit colour space and RGB laser heads on to real photographic paper etc, so for that matter does the Kodak Pegasus and a few others.

    The Fuji Pictography system creates a dye image via colour laserjet which is then transferred to the paper and then chemically exposed on the paper. Unlike the direct laser writing of the Lambda, Pegasus, Lightjet and others.

    Kodak offer direct printing (Pegasus, 20P etc) that are damn near impossible to tell from a Lambda print for most smaller sizes. Dye-Sub produces a superior colour transition to inkjets as there are no dots in Dye-Sub. It's main drawback however is cost and lack of choice of papers.

    I guess those prints from beautiful memories are usually Fujifim digital print and not lightjet prints, even though they use crystal Archive Pape? Can we really tell from a lightjet and pro photo lab prints?
