  • Punch cards were more-or-less gone before my day, but I did build an overscale / crude punch-card reader for a school (seventh or eighth grade?) science project. It worked and had display lights ...
  • It appears to me that you, jpegman, may have misunderstood what Lothman is asking / proposing. It appears to be a variant of what the OP is asking / proposing: have the ColorMunki print the first ...
  • That is certainly a reasonable option. I've heard lots of good things about ArgyllCMS But the big knock seems to be lack of user-friendliness. My guess is that anyone who has to ask how to make a ...
  • It sounds like your printer with its special UV printing software will not print from anything other than its special software, so the ColorMunki Photo software can't print (or at least print ...
  • Unless your image is exactly 300 ppi (or maybe 600 ppi if you're using a super-high-resolution mode), then you ought to resize it to exactly 300 ppi (or 600) before sending it to the printer. By ...
  • Mark, I'm sure you know far more about much of this than I do, but inviting your further comment, and FWIW: My notes (guaranteed to be worth what you're paying for them!) say that the Pro-1 was ...
  • Thanks, that seems logical, and I'd surely defer to your expertise. However, FWIW, John Hoffman showed us what appears to be a Canon recommendation for "Other Glossy Paper (wide margins)" (at https ...
  • Got, it media types--I see what you're saying. The N versus non-N would seem the same as with the ICC profiles, but the A versus non-A is a bit more of a mystery, except this: especially among ...
  • I got this Impact Heavy-Duty Air-Cushioned Light Stand (Black, 9.5') for $55: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1274797-REG/impact_ls_96habi_9_5_heavy_duty_air.html It is rated to hold 22 lb ...
  • Do you mean media types, or ICC profiles, when you're discussing the suffice A? I have not seen media types with these suffixes. I do see Canon ICC profiles with the suffices A and N. I asked ...
  • That is just another paper-based medium, not a polyester film. Pictorico Pro Hi-Gloss White Film and FujiFlex SuperGloss are the (nearly) unique products they are mostly due to the base, the ...
  • Mark, what media setting did you use / do you recommend? Even if one can make, or would have made, a custom ICC profile, it seems like starting with the most appropriate media setting is a ...
  • You are (1) citing generalized claims (2) in marketing materials--not published detailed test data. This is especially problematic because Canon clearly cherry-picks which of the tests it ...
  • Dahle makes three different lines of rotary trimmers. The aforementioned 558 is from the "Professional" line, even the smallest one of which (the model 550) would cost you £92 ( https://www.amazon. ...
  • That may all be correct. However, I have not seen any test data from Wilhelm, Aardenburg, or anyone comparably authoritative that supports these claims. Perhaps it is there and I missed it; by all ...
  • I already explained in some detail here-- https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61352516 --why I think it is not crazy to hope that Sony might sell an E 16-50mm f/2.8 for $900. I also acknowledged ...
  • Replied in Ink costs
    That is partially true. In the U.S. at least, last I priced ink the Pro-100's cost about $1.05/ml and the Pro-1000's cost about $0.70/ml. So that would be a 33% savings--not huge, but not trivial. ...
  • Oh I think 6 ink colors can produce quite nice prints, but e.g. with my little R280, I have 5760x1440 dpi so that's 64 ink-dot spaces per pixel, versus 8 on the SL-D700. Obviously this is a ...
  • Replied in Monitor PPI
    No, because probably not too many monitors these days are as low as 72 PPI. Even my 'only full HD' monitor here of 25 inches is about 88 ppi. If you go to, say, an UHD* monitor of 32 inches, ...
  • I realize LR has multiple different ways to export, even including through the Print module. I realize that LR has output sharpening options. What I did not know was that LR output sharpening can ...
