Keith Cooper's recent activity

  • Yes, quite a bit of experience with it... ;-) https://www.northlight-images.co.uk/epson-et-8550-printer-review/
  • What concerned many when decimalisation happened, was that apart from a few specific values there were assorted 'rounding errors' which of course made for plentiful opportunities for slight price ...
  • The Schilling was as I recall the currency in Austria before the Euro? There were twelve pence in a shilling The new 5p piece (1/20th of a pound so the same as the shilling) was made up of 5 'New ...
  • Yes, but I don't know the measurements. It's not shiftable at the moment to measure...
  • Certainly If you have any specific questions, email me at Northlight? The main review was some time ago, so I'll be going over a wider range of functions than I'd normally use. It will be a while ...
  • Thanks! I deeply dislike lightroom, so I only print from Photoshop or the Epson software You've just given me another reason to avoid lightroom I'm afraid ;-) I do have a copy of Mirage to test - I ...
  • Yes - as long as the printer is properly supported, the table size just has to fit. The extra gap round the edge does not have to be table...  I can easily move a pro-200 about the house, the ...
  • Ventilation and airflow for the paper vacuum system. I'd not do that -  I'd want 100mm for airflow - this is not your small desktop printer ;-) Also, printers are designed to move a bit as part of ...
  • As you can see, the official space is quite big. I have the front slightly overhanging the table it's on. The really important distance is clearance at the back if you want to use the straight ...
  • The tin-foil hat stuff about "add more anti-consumer lockdown measures" Your printer, so do what you like, but I still think your conclusions are essentially wrong - i.e. if a firmware update ...
  • Yes - for me, if a paper doesn't work well, it's out I don't care what name is on the box or how many people 'recommend' it ;-) IMHO, you get the printer first and then see which papers work.
  • Your opinion, but simply wrong IMHO
  • It's something I've actually discussed with them in the past, but it doesn't fit their current direction... I'm getting on with emptying my office* to start doing some more printing videos, once ...
  • Replied in iShoot
    Thanks - careful you don't assign too much capacity for getting apparent DOF out of using tilt ;-) Remember that the tilted plane of focus is a wedge and can be very thin near the camera at strong ...
  • Replied in iShoot
    Looks a nice simple design - I've not seen one though. I'm curious as to what uses can be found for tilt with such a device - maybe downward tilt and panning the camera to get stitch-able panoramas ...
  • Created discussion thread Epson P7500 [P7570 etc.] review FYI
    It went back... :-( Anyway, here's my [written] review https://www.northlight-images.co.uk/epson-surecolor-p7500-printer-review/ There are links in it to all the videos I've created for the P7500 T ...
  • Created discussion thread Lustre vs art paper for a B&W image
    As part of the stuff I've produced covering the P7500 (which goes back tomorrow), I took a look at printing a particular (24" x 36") B&W image on two different papers. Hope it's of some interest, ...
  • Another one - this time looking at some glossy canvas Unfortunately, It goes back on Monday
  • Replied in A big printer?
    Yes, those were two of my main aims ;-) For people who have the money and space such printers can be great fun to use. However I still come across too many people who see the idea of such a large ...
  • Looking at why some images just need to be printed big [22mins] I'll be coming back to this in a further look at print detail The lens I'm using is the new Laowa RF mount 90mm f/2.8 2x In the video ...
