Keith Cooper's recent activity

  • 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 ...
  • Here's a look at printing a pano image, including some of how I address related colour management issues [17mins]
  • Since I've had the P7500 here, I've had several people ask if a large printer like this (or P7000 or Canon PRO-2100) was a a good idea to buy. Well, it depends... You need to have enough use for it ...
  • Replied in Yes, update...
    Unfortunately, there is rarely any specific info provided about the content of such updates Me too ;-) I've asked contacts at Canon and Epson, and the local branches  (such as the US, or here in ...
  • My iPF 8300 decided to eat heads for no good reason - carted off for scrap. My SP9600 lasted for years and years with hardly a clog... Just one example ;-) As you might imagine I get a steady ...
  • A quick [ok, ~33mins] look at using a custom media for a very thick stiff paper It's 440um but the mfr. says to use 'PremiumSemiGloss' - I don't think so... ;-) The vacuum may yet need increasing ...
  • Replied in Firmware update
    Thanks - I'll check this. I may already have it, since part of my setup of a new review machine is to check firmware. In my 'stock' [from past printer reviews] I found a whole 24" roll of Fotospeed ...
  • It's my contribution to keeping people's mental arithmetic skills alert... ;-) I'm old enough to still guesstimate things in feet and inches, but only use metric for calculations. I'm in the UK, ...
  • My suspicion is that given the markets the P5000 is aimed at, it does not attract those worried about ink costs. Personally I'd never consider refills etc, but you could try the forums at: https:// ...
  • A look at using my test image to test for B&W print linearity and shadow detail Used here for fine tuning ABW print output For print quality, this printer is rapidly becoming the best I've tested ...
  • Now the P7500 has settled down from its journey, I've a second video looking at roll paper, initial profiling and a first test print. I'm just starting off on a 16" roll of Premium Luster I have ...
  • No, but I've just been printing my ABW test prints on the P7500 at all three quality setting, with and without  the BE setting I'm curious to see if B&W on the P7500 is better than the P900/700 - ...
  • Not any current ones (AFAIK) - Epson ink formulations take a different approach. I have wondered about the benefits of such a clear coat when testing the P700/900 ABW mode and finding an unwelcome ...
  • Thanks The sheet feed improvement had me at dropping A4 plain sheets into it when doing some nozzle checks :-) I have a box of A2 Epson poster board somewhere...
  • Canon have quite a different ink composition and ink feed system, so you don't get the agitation process with Epsons There is accounting software, but it is windoze only so I won't be looking at it ...
  • Thanks - this is the sort of stuff I do usually look at, but generally only after I've been using the printer a bit. However, whilst I'll happily suggest due diligence and research to anyone ...
  • All info here https://www.epson.co.uk/en_GB/products/printers/large-format/surecolor-sc-p7500/p/29731
  • Well, it's here. It did need tipping on its end to get through a doorway - something it is OK with (screen end down) fully loaded with ink ...unlike Canon printers. It's resting, after its 70 mile ...
  • I do get this done for some of my commercial prints Typically large ones in board rooms and the like, where I gan get a custom size frame to drop them in - any good picture framer can knock these ...
  • The PRO-2000,2100 paper feed is designed in such a way that you cannot get small end margins with a small sheet like A4. The paper is not fed in a way that allows it If you want small margins use a ...
