i guess my sentiments do not differ from jasphotography's.
Btw, i haven't received the soft copies yet.
True matte will have no reflections on it at all. Lustre still has some sheen on it.CaeSiuM said:ckiang is right. At least for the Singapore labs, they use the lustre paper in place of the true matte finish. Not sure how different they are but I think the lustre paper is fantastic itself.
When u choose the type of paper (kodak/fuji/konica/etc), besides considering its resistance to fingerprints, etc, don't you consider whether or not the prints can last a long time without fading?LiOnElLiN said:although i prefer matte, its only because of it's resistance to fingerprints!
...found that konica's golden dragon glossy paper is actually quite resistant too...
...anyone knows of a reputable printing shop which uses such paper?
Ahh so that's the difference. To me it seems a negligible thing but it may matter to others.ckiang said:True matte will have no reflections on it at all. Lustre still has some sheen on it.
