Kwick1: Pretty sure that "Up to 1.1M panorama" is a myth, considering what this proper reviewer just printed: http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/reviews/printer/epson-sc_p800_review.html

Just printed an even bigger image with a 3.2m custom page length

Details in the thread in the printing forum...

The panos were actually printed fairly easily :-) No way was this complicated ;-)

The 10 foot one required a bit more work because I was using 10 inch wide paper. The black and white pano (~2m) was using 17" paper.

The images were only resized to fit the paper, since they were originally printed at much bigger sizes (47 feet for the colour one)

I've just been sent a 16" roll of Epson PGPP, so I'll be doing a few more experiments yet. Time to see some more big prints!

The custom paper size setting would suggest that 129" is the maximum.

If anyone has any direct questions, please let me know - there is a thread about the review in the printing forum.

Perhaps one of Canon's more informative examples of this type of interview.

Not that there was a lot of concrete information, just a bit more than usual ;-)

Very good overview given the inherent difficulties of comparative reviews. Also a subject that some have strong, but not necessarily well researched views on, so never going to please a few ;-)

Avoids going into minutiae that would likely lose a lot of readers - for people complaining about lack of detail, just get the demo versions and try your own comparisons.

As someone who writes reviews, including some of what's here, it's a brief I'd not have liked to see land on my desk ;-)
