Thanks.  I'm not so sure that the Canon i950 firmware doesn't *always* 
use all six inks (rather than just black), but I'll play around with it 
and see what I can come up with.

I agree with Hartmann on the issue of grain.  I shoot 35mm because I 
like the aesthetics of 35mm.  I don't want my 35mm shots to look like 
large format photographs.  So, maybe I should think twice about 
shelling out $195 on the quadtones...

Here's a bizarre thought: Since the ink cartridges in the i950 are all 
the same (except for the colour inside them), maybe I should replace 
all the colour ones with (Canon) black and then experiment with 
transfer curves in Photoshop until I get smooth tonal changes... ;)
