    palladium and platinum metals.

    People have discussed the possibility that it would be possible to load a printer with the proper solutions to get a print using very small quantities of solutions. I don't think anyone has tried it, though, or at least I have not seen any prints done that way.

    yeh, the amount of chems required to fill up the printer cart to get a good print is a heap of $$$ - and you still only get the printer resolution ...

    Interesting idea though

    Sure it's expensive to initially fill the print cartridge, but question is will the printer use the solution more efficiently and produce more prints?

    Printer resolution .. How we can improve it ? I have some ideas , there are two technologies at printer business if i m not wrong
    First , pixel technology , if i m not wrong , printer can print a dot with different shades and sizes. I am understanding different dot size but it is hard to understand how printer print different shades ? if i m not wrong , it uses different amount of ink per same size dot and this makes the shades.
    And there are four different tones black and white inks.
    There are 3 necessary things
    First , tone of the grey ink could be controlled
    This can be done with multipass for each prepared ink tone , maybe 20 times or more , with a fast printer its easy.
    Second , sharpness or blur of the dot could be controlled.
    This can be done with printing different size microlenses on printed paper with for example transparent silicon polymer with uv cured formula.
    This invention is interesting , For example you have nikon lens and you want to have leica , with microlenses on nikon printing , you are closing to leica.
    This is similar to holography , zone plate , or phase plate technology but easier ?
    Third , ink spectrum might be equivalent of pt or pd.
    This is chemists business but may be researched before.
    For color , inks could be transparent and one color could be printed with different layers of transparent pantone colors.
    I will write more ,

    If it is not broke then why fix it? What's wrong with the way PT/Pd prints are being produced now. Just go buy the size camera that will shoot the size you want to print. Hell the price it will cost to fill the cartidges for Pt/Pd printing just one time will probably pay for a really nice ULF camera. Plus it contributes to keeping film alive. Nothing like forking out the big bucks for ULF film to make a nice contribution to the cause.
