24" Wide Printers - 01/09 Canon or Epson purchase
Sep 4, 2008

I am starting my research for getting a 24" printer that I plan on purchasing around January '09. I am looking primarily at the Epson R7880(maybe even the Colorburst edition) and the the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6100(I've heard rumors of a replacement?).

I will be printing primarily on Moab Entrada Bright and Moab Anasazi Canvas, though I will pribably do some B&W on a yet to be decided Lustre type paper.

The subject matter is mostly mountain shots, landscapes and cityscapes. Throw in the occasional flower, bird, animal or people shot and that is what the printer will be used for. No studio work.

I need input on usability and ink costs, and over all quality on these media. I know both would do an excellent job, but I need to find some distinguishing features that will sway me to part with the $$$ for one of these fine printers.

Thanks,
