  • The whole point is that such images are specially created to show problems in printing - yours (and mine) are not. They often come with a guide as what to look for in the different parts of the ...
  • I'd still suggest using a known test image and the Epson profile - it's a different printer, so settings are unlikely to be similar. Just trying adjustments is a great way of using up paper/ink ;-)
  • Replied in Wrong, but how?
    Have you used a known good test image to test your print setup and settings? Most people have great difficulty in meaningfully describing what's 'wrong' in a print, when it's not an obvious fault. ...
  • Replied in Scanning
    For smaller artwork 50MP 5Ds + TS-E90 Stitched multi shot shifted images for higher res. For really high res I'll use longer focal length and take a series of shots to stitch. Resolution is rarely ...
  • Ah, I should have mentioned in my reply that I was only speaking for my experience of the UK market - like many, I sometimes forget this is an international list and practices vary. That said, if a ...
  • In general I won't put text of any sort on prints.  That goes for commercial sales to companies, such as large prints for foyers/boardrooms etc and also to private sales (in someone's house). Where ...
  • Then enjoy the experience! if not bellows then a few cheap extension tubes? Here's a 28mm M43 lens (£2.50 at a charity shop) reversed, and stuck to some extension tubes with hot melt glue This from ...
  • The camera method is fast - although shooting tethered is absolutely vital. Other advantages  I've seen mentioned are being able to view the results in processing software (with adjustment presets) ...
  • Have you checked other epson sites round the world? I know from talking to people here that each region handles its own software support. I looked at Epson.co.uk and there was newer Mac software ...
  • I did look at the V850 a while ago and used the Epson software for testing, but for serious use I'd pick Vuescan (over the silverscanSE software it also came wit) http://www.northlight-images.co.uk ...
  • Ah, that could make things problematic. Much of the advice in this thread is aimed at reducing uncertainty and variability in a workflow. Follow the various suggestions here, but do be aware that ...
  • Is this the original iSis model? I did wonder if they introduced license management in the Mk2 version? My (very) old one needs either the dongle or an i1Pro plugging in.
  • Whilst that's a very valid observation, by far and away the largest proportion of people who've asked me about this over the years have got an improvement by turning the monitor down a bit. Of ...
  • None for 15 years I'm afraid... I usually enjoy seeing their pitch at Focus/TPS which always reminds me of a market stall ;-)
  • The simplest (and most common) cause of this is having your monitor set too bright. The ideal way to approach this is to calibrate your monitor to a lower light level. If upon lowering your monitor ...
  • If you can wait until The Photography Show at the NEC, Marrutt are a regular feature ;-) Here's a bunch of willing punters wanting to hand over cash at Focus 2010 They've been in the replacement ...
  • These people made all the frames for several exhibitions of mine https://www.pmtrading.co.uk They are in Leicester - I visited them directly to see what they could do. Worth checking if you want ...
  • Some good questions that all too often are not given enough attention. In terms of suitable source material, it does depend on what size prints you want to produce. If I was limited to 13"x19" then ...
  • Replied in Gloss or matt
    "Similar ... without the need to re-profile" Something I'm minded to think I'd only hear from someone selling inks ;-) Nope, personally I wouldn't use non OEM inks. I'd have to reprofile everything ...
  • That's a fascinating project - I look forward to hearing how it goes. I've spoken to several suppliers here in the UK and whilst the import costs are regularly mentioned as a problem, the real ...
