I think that inkjet gives a darker positive, but that's just me.
thanx, which brand? approx price? I need A3 size
Ive got an epson 3000, I picked it up on craigslist for 40 bucks. i just needed to pull the ink heads and clean em . But after that..... wow very nice prints.

Good for half tones also.
I use an Epson 7800. Great films, I have had it for about 8 months. Last year I went through 3 epson R1800's. I print about 15 to 20 films a day. If you buy an ink jet you need a good rip software.
I use Epson R1800's with AccuRip software. They will print really opaque halftones.
Epsons are the best for A2 or above, Canon ix4000/5000 does a good job as well at A3.
