Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique
Just like Fotospeed’s Platinum Baryta media, Canson Infinity’s Baryta Photographique paper features a barium-sulphate coating to give it the look and aesthetics of an original darkroom print. The paper is acid-free to avoid degradation from its surroundings and is also internally buffered to resist gas fading and maximise the longevity of your work. Adding to this, it features optical brightening agents to increase the whiteness of the media and is optimised for pigmented inks.
The big advantage is the speed at which ink dries on the surface. Prints are ready to touch as soon as they land on the print tray, so there’s no frustrating waiting period before you can frame or mount your work. With impressive control in the darkest shadows of our test prints, it’s complementary to black and white photography, as well as colour. Thicker than Fotospeed’s Baryta paper, it comes in sizes from A4 to A2 and rolls for large format printers. A box of A3+ (25 sheets) will set you back £65 (£2.60 a sheet) and an ICC profile is available to download.
A4 x 20 sheets: £23
A3 x 20 sheets: £44
A3+ x 25 sheets: £65
