  4. Re: Tips for digital negatives using dye based inks?

    You can probably get refillable carts and use the cape fear inks with that printer. Get my pro digital negative system and you’ll be on your way in no time. Doing it with the OEM will be more trouble...

    Re: Best Drum Scanning Service?

    I am sorry, I personally think you need to show how you came to that conclusion. There is no way in the world the epson is remotely close to the drum scan. When I was scanning 8x10s on the 750, the...
