Pixel Perfect still uses the Durst Lambda 131 as our primary digital photo printer, alongside our colour managed Noritsu Minilab printer. These machines are regarded as the benchmark for ultimate quality in digital photo printing.
Large format digital photo (silver halide) printing
Our large digital photo prints are created with our high-speed 50-inch wide Durst Lambda printer, and processed through our Kreonite RA-4 chemical processor.
We are one of the last Prolabs in Australia still using a Lambda digital laser printer, we currently print on a selection of premium long-life, photographic media from Kodak and Fuji. In producing digital prints onto light sensitive papers using lasers, all Lambda prints are chemically processed. For more information on our Durst Lambda check out this link
Pixel Perfect Prolab produces Silver Halide or C-Type photo prints in both large and small formats. We use only the highest quality level Kodak and Fuji professional products and the best processes for our photo printing, and all papers are rated as archival. So bring in your digital files and let’s show you what we can do.
Our Photo paper Types include…
Our most our popular paper finishes and the best all-rounder, Fuji Lustre has a semi-gloss satin finish, which is more forgiving of fingerprints. Rich colour reproduction, great skin tones and deep blacks make this the natural choice for many photographers.
The matte finish from Kodak features our most delicate semi-matte texture, a great all round performer displaying great skin tones with the added benefit of reduced reflections on the paper surface compared to our other Lambda papers.
Kodak Endura Gloss brings excellent depth and richness to any image with intense blacks and punchy colours. As with all glossy papers, this paper needs to be handled with care as the surface is easy to scratch or mark with fingerprints.
Fuji Pearl paper is our metallic gloss Lambda paper. An imperceptible extra layer above the print dyes causes iridescence which adds an extra dimension to both colour and black and white images, particularly visible in highlights and in reflections on the paper surface.
Pixel Perfect is one of the only labs in Australia to print on this stock, Fuji Flex (sometimes called super or hyper gloss) is noticeably different in feel from our other Lambda papers.
Fuji Flex uses a plastic rather than paper base material, which enables its surface to be completely free of texture, the mirror smooth surface gives sharp details and the warmer white gives rich colours.
Small Format Digital Photo Printing
With no compromise in quality, our Noritsu mini-lab produces true photographic prints. The workflow is the same in that the printer is colour managed and profiles for this printer are available from our Support section. Our Noritsu prints are exposed digitally, and processed in the same way as Lambda prints. Only available in set photographic sizes, the end results are premium colour accurate prints that already trimmed to size.
- Digital photo prints are printed with our Noritsu OSS 3202 printer.
- Printed on long-life Kodak Endura Lustre paper.
- Economical way to print large orders of small prints
Kodak Lustre is the only type of paper on offer for the Minilab and has a semi-gloss, satin finish which is forgiving of fingerprints. It also features the same rich colour characteristics, great skin tones and deep blacks that makes Lustre one of the most popular paper choices for photographers
