  • Since this thread has been reopened, thought I would throw this in... Several years back I ran across some rubber "rings" at B&H meant to be used as anti-creep rings.  You put them on the lens ...
  • Read this article: http://ultralightphotography.net/gear/fuji-cameras/everything-you-wanted-to-know-about-np-w126-batteries/ Hope this helps, bob snow
  • Agreed!  Time for Epson support.  That is too bad, but better now than later!! Hope you get it resolved satisfactorily.. bob snow
  • Been thinking about your problem with feed. Have you checked the Epson print driver to see if perhaps the PLATEN GAP or PAPER THICKNESS is set wrong somehow. Just go into the preferences in the ...
  • I have had the p800 since it first came out, and all I can say is that I have never had a paper feed problem.  Dunno what to advise you, except to try some different paper and see if you get the ...
  • NEAT!!!  That really shows it nicely.  I have used QTR with success for a long time, and it does get the job done. bob snow
  • I don't have the newest version, but I do have a couple of versions back. I don't see where anybody has addressed what you can do to customize the program.  As it comes, the default settings for me ...
  • I have the new firmware, and one GREAT improvement:  You can now do a nozzle check and the printout is actually seeable!!  It prints out really dark and easy to read...even the yellow ink. Worth ...
  • I just checked the M6 menus, and the IS is either turned ON or OFF.  No Mr. Inbetween.  The 15-45mm doesn't have an IS switch either.  No wonder the battery life is fairly short. bob snow
  • Replied in Epson P600
    I forgot to mention the other day that, based on my own experience with the P600's predecesor and the 3800 which was the P800 predecesor), the R3000 and the P800, I would definitely say that the ...
  • Replied in Epson P600
    Agree with what the previous poster said... If you print mainly 'glossy' surfaces, you will appreciate the gloss optimizer a lot. One thing in favor of the P600 is that it has larger ink ...
  • Thanks for the reply. I really dislike the CC plan in general.  I am still using CS6 as a result plus the latest version of LR (not cc).  Before I download and try the newest CC version, I think I ...
  • Exactly what I was waiting to hear/see!  If their new selection tool is really 'super', I might finally give in and try the CC version out. Thanks for your sharing... bob snow
  • Replied in A Caution
    This comparison app is by Ernst Dinkla, and I would trust him totally.  He is a long long time contributor over in Luminous Landscape. Just for the record, you can just view it if you don't want to ...
  • Here is a link to a valuable site that will answer your question in spades. When looking at the papers, hover your pointer over the paper, and the Lab value is show in a moment. Of course, *b is ...
  • Using a UV flashlight helps you more plainly see most of the colors...not just the yellow. A few days ago, I was playing around with my P800, and tried running the nozzle check twice on the same ...
  • Wow!  You went back 6 years for this one... I think the 1430 would handle the velvet fineart OK, but I question whether the dye based inks would be archival or not on this paper.  If you are going ...
  • My two cents... I have had one or two clogs in my P800 after only a week without running it. Thus, I now turn it on and run a calibration pattern through QTR which simply prints about a 3/8 inch ...
  • Pretty well agree with that.  I have had both.  I bought the 77D for the lighter weight and a little smaller footprint. First time I went out on a shoot, half my images were back focused enough to ...
  • Yes, that was the culprit.  Don't know why it suddenly occurred to me to check the URL.  I am very tired this evening, so I guess just dumb luck that it popped into my thick skull. bob snow
