    Re: Color of large prints

    Sorry I but I have not been keeping up with this post. The bottom line is that when it works your Epson printer is a decent printer. When it doesn’t it’s a near useless except to burn ink and paper,...

    I have had nothing but problems with Espon 9800 series printers. I have had massive color shifts that would drive me nuts. I finally just powered the printer off and back on and it fixed it. Kind of...

    I finished my thesis this year and printed it on my Canon PF9400 printer (60" wide). So they were not darkroom prints but what I am going to describe could be used in a digital or wet environment. If...

    The picture you posted is for a Sinar P2 system, not a Sinar Norma. You will need a 18x24cm Norma back, not the P series you posted.
