  • I may indeed be lucky with this printer. I am willing to accept  the  ocassional (weekly) cleaning cycle for the beautiful  prints it produces along  with its  roll capabilities. Maybe  someday  I ...
  • I realize I am the odd man out here but....I love this printer! Yes, I am all too familiar with the head issues posted in this forum about the 4900. Call me lucky. My 4900 is going on 2 years as ...
  • I own a 180mm with the plastic  barrel. It is an awesome lens if you don't  need  fast  auto focus. I have read that it is the same  design  as the new ones. Anyway, sharp glass.
  • I would definitely need to look at this more closely. A co-worker bought this printer a week ago and decided he did not want it after all. He has taken the printhead out and declared this is the ...
  • Thanks for your comments Steve. I definitely need to consider what you mention. I used to be a technician installing, training, and repairing wide format inkjet printers including solvent and UV ...
  • Hello, I have an opportunity to purchase an Epson 7900 printer for $100. Other than needing a new printhead it seems to be in great condition (wipers, ink lines) no errors. I have seen a video ...
  • Thank you for your thoughts and insights. Either way, it is an expensive purchase. In the past I have either purchased locally (new or used) or else purchased from B&H or Adorama. I have also ...
  • Created discussions Nikon Gray Market Lenses
    I am planning to "bite the bullet" and purchase a Nikon 14-24mm zoom. The fair trade price seems to be just under 2K. I have noticed several vendors on ebay selling these new for a little over ...
  • I own this same excellent lens and do not get images as saturated as yours. I shoot raw and usually convert to dng. I also cannot imagine that it is the lens but I do not have an answer as well. ...
  • Noticed the 30 second exposure...I used to try to use various IR filters on a D700 and D600. Between the long exposures, lack of viewing visibility, light leaks, etc., I became discouraged. I had ...
  • For those who are shooting with Nikon IR modified cameras and shooting RAW, getting a proper white balance has been kind of a pain. The new NX-D software allows you to load adjustments into ...
  • Nice photos! I guess I am suprised that such a small, light, and (in my case) somewhat forgotten lens has plenty of life left in it. As I mentioned in the first post, I have no problem with the ...
  • Created discussions Old 24mm 2.8 AF still has life
    After not using it in over 10 years, I pulled out an old 24mm 2.8 AF (non D) lens out of a bag that I purchased in the late 80s. I thought to myself that this lens doesn't "have a chance" on my ...
  • I live in Utah, where it is also dry. I find that if I do a nozzle check on my 4900 printer weekly it stays happy. Much longer than that and a cleaning (1 or 2) will be required. I also keep a ...
  • I didn't know they sold this without the VR version..11 elements vs 7 elements. All I can say is the relatively inexpensive VR version surprises me in it's sharpness.
  • I own both lenses and have found "my" use for each. I shoot landscapes and use an FX body for the planned, tripod mounted shots. This is where I would reach for the 70-200 - it has all be said - ...
  • I have owned mine for years and never thought twice about the rear element...Great Lens!
  • If you are new to DSLRs and video as well, may I suggest you simply stick with the 18-55 lens that probably came with the camera? This will give you a variety of focal lengths to experiment with ...
  • I know you said under 1k, but I have to say that I love my 16-35 f4. I also own a 24 2.8 and an older 20-35 f2.8 zoom, yet my 16-35 is the one I grab. Super sharp, and covers at least 3 primes. ...
