What's going to happen to 17"+ printers with Canikon 36MP DSLRs?
Feb 21, 2012

What do you think is going to happen to printer prices for 17 inch and larger printers now that 36MP DSLRs for under $9000 are becoming a reality? Epson sells their bigger printers about $200 below cost to vendors but makes it back in ink sales. I don't think that model's going to change so therefore I believe the prices will remain the same. However I think there will be some serious innovation in the 17" and larger segment causing for some competition between manufacturers.

I'm sure Epson/Canon & HP are thinking of all the 36MP DSLR owners as a "penetration rate" similar to cellular carriers thinking of the percentage of the population with cell phones. I think there's going to be some great innovation in the large format print industry soon.
