  • Replied in Replace UPS
    I went through the same kind of  'replacement' process a few years ago and ended up with an APC 650 UPS - which I've been very satisfied with. Before you make a decision, I suggest that you ...
  • Oh drat! :-( From the photography you describe that you do, it sounds like you really need to suppress moire for quite a lot of your shots. Perhaps the D850 - with (I'm assuming) a higher pixel ...
  • I take it you've been burned? soloryb
  • I can see why you would miss a pop-up, since you say you use it in almost all of your photos. The SB400 takes conventional AA batteries - just carry 2 extra. The whole unit doesn't weigh too much ...
  • Agree. I can't use the pop-up on my D800E with long lenses - especially with a hood. The pop-up is not very powerful in the first place. You can't angle the pop-up, so it often produces images that ...
  • Did you mean $.33 per minute? Still, I'm sure $20/Hr is expensive compared to whatever is paid to non-USA tech workers and could wipe out the profit margin, especially for lower priced products ...
  • Apple? - Their tech support is in a class by itself, according to Consumer Mag and my own experience with them (My wife only uses Mac and i* stuff and I've had to deal with their tech support from ...
  • That I don't know. You can obviously not know this just from talking with tech since support guys/gals can be of any nationality or from anywhere on earth. Call customer service for each company ...
  • My printer experience: Epson, Canon, HP, Brother, Dell My tech help experience with each - in order of best to worst HP : I've owned a number of HP printers and have had good experience with ...
  • Can't you cut the 12"/24" with more accuracy than +-3mm? I believe the ipf6400 will print with a minimum border of 3mm, unless you print borderless. If you mean that the cut roll will vary in width ...
  • I had the same idea that you did re small light 600mm package using the 2X TCIII. Did the 1.4 and the 2.0 with the 300 f4 PF on a D800E. The 1.4 was OK. The 2.0 combo was not. A Nikkor 70-200 @ 200 ...
  • Replied in HP ink hog!!!!
    I guess the saddest part of it is that we've now come to expect this sort of bad behavior from just about all companies. As to why; the bottom line is profit. If a corporation fails to show ever ...
  • Replied in HP ink hog!!!!
    Of the more than 15 printers I've owned - including Canon, Brother, HP, Epson and Dell - only the Canons never failed (I've had 4 Canons). Do you do much medium or large format photo printing? Whic ...
  • Replied in HP ink hog!!!!
    Thanks for the article link. It confirms what I thought regarding ink sales. In fairness to HP, all the other printer manufacturers do the same thing to a greater or lesser extent. The workaround ...
  • Replied in HP ink hog!!!!
    We have 2 HP Envy 4520 printers and at the price point these little things are marketed at and the limited use we put them through, we don't worry about excessive ink use. The Envy has rather tiny ...
  • Sky, I currently own a Canon ipf6400 and a Pro-1000. More than one of Canon's techs (and my own experience) have told me that nozzle checks should be done periodically - if for nothing else than to ...
  • I've owned several Canon printers and have had many occasions to call their tech support. Your experience with a less than knowledgeable tech is par for the course - matching my own experiences. ...
  • It's like running a car without ever changing the oil. If you dump it every few years, it becomes the next owner's problem. Or if you're unlucky, the engine just seizes up before you get a chance ...
  • Joe, I recently aquired a Pro-1000 and read that the print optimizer is used by the machine during the cleaning cycle to clean the platen (not sure if it was regular or deep cleaning). It was from ...
  • I have printed borderless with a few medium format printers (Hp b9180, Epson 3880) but saw no residue with the HP and some residue with the 3880. However, I didn't print borderless prints most of ...
