What's going to happen to 17"+ printers with Canikon 36MP DSLRs?
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.
