  • Amazon UK - https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=epson+archival+matte+paper+a3&crid=3J5JHW2UKGTW0&sprefix=epson+archival+matte%2Caps%2C117&ref=nb_sb_ss_ts-doa-p_2_20 Curiously it seems to have gone up ...
  • I proof print pretty much everything I do on Epson Archival Matte paper on an SC-P5000 and have never had any problems whether printing MK or PK at 1400 or 2800 (MK inks definitely look better). ...
  • I've had my X1D cleaned by Hasselblad technicians a couple of times when they were offering a free clean during a promotional demonstration.  Both times they used Eclipse. Different sensors on the ...
  • I have an old Samsung laser printer which I used daily when I was working, Now retired I don't have much use for a laser printer until now - so I got it out of storage. The printer is at least 10 ...
  • Replied in Back-up drives
    You say that you need at least 5-6GB for the photo drive.  I assume you really meant 5-6TB.  If you really meant 5-6GB then just buy a 1TB SSD.  But I will respond on the basis that you really ...
  • Have a look at this - the Luna Display. I haven't used it but there are a few reviews and videos on YouTube and it does seem to work. https://astropad.com/product/lunadisplay/
  • I just bought a MacBook Air M2 with 16GB RAM and 516GB storage.  I am impressed with the responsiveness and speed of the M2 chip but need an external SSD. I use this or will use it for Lightroom ...
  • Thanks for all the suggestions.  Unfortunately I have become so used to iView Media Pro that it has become second nature in my workflow.  Ultimately I guess I will have to buy a reconditioned iMac ...
  • I have kept an old Mac going with Mojave so that I can continue to use iView Media Pro, but the time is coming when that will come to the end of its life. Is there any alternative or substitute for ...
  • When my 3880 died (the ink switching mechanism gave up) I replaced it with the P5000.  That cost me about the same as the then new P900 with the roll option.  It is huge but built like a tank (and ...
  • I have a Yongnuo YN200 which I think is a knock off from the Godox AD200.  It came with a very basic diffuser - a reflector with an opaque plastic cover/filter.  I don't use flash very often but ...
  • Well I bought a matte cutter once - lots of errors and ruined mattes and lots of hard work and lots of time.  Making my own frames is way beyond my ability.  So I print everything I do in standard ...
  • I am not particularly concerned about the idea that memory swapping will destroy the internal SSD.  But I was wondering if it is possible to force the MBA to swap to an external SSD.  I have a ...
  • Thanks.  This does look like the way to go.  But just to be clear, for relatively light work in Lightroom is 8GB of the unified memory sufficient?  I was a bit surprised to find that my old (2.2 ...
  • I have been travelling with an old 11 inch MacBook Air with 8GB of Memory and that has been fine for transferring photos, putting them into a Lightroom Catalog, doing very minor exposure ...
  • I have never used Capture 1 but understand that there are many people who depend and indeed swear upon it as the best processor.  I have alerted Hasselblad to the problems I found but if you ...
  • I would avoid DNGs.  Out of curiosity I tried a couple of exports and at least with my version of Phocus -3.7.4 there is a bug in that on export to DNG Phocus resets the temperature and tint ...
  • The X2D captures in 3FR format.  These are over 200mb but if you import them into Phocus they are converted to 3fff files.  These tend to be between 140mb and 155mb depending on the information ...
