  • I used to have an Epson R1800 and now own the Epson 800. In between I had an Epson 4800 which clogged if you looked at it the wrong way.  The ink usage of the 800 is hands down better than the ...
  • Really, alright let's just say any full frame camera. Again I exaggerate to make a point but absolutely went over your head. Actually not invisible and one can do a test in photoshop to see the ...
  • A question one could ask about any number of gadgets.  I use a 10-bit workflow and enjoy it.  As to whether it is necessary well is a full frame camera with 42 megapixels needed by most ...
  • After going thru 4 BenQ SW2700PT's I bought the Eizo CS2730 which is miles beyond the BenQ.  Color uniformity was the issue with the BenQ's.  BTW if you use any other calibration software than ...
  • I just use a large plastic garbage bag.
  • Though I don't own a Fujifilm Camera as a cyclist really enjoyed the video. Going to try photographing my bike against the landscape using the same technique. The quality of the video was very...

  • My experience with the SW2700 was not good and after 4 units decided to bite the bullet and get an Eizo.  Don't know about the SW271.  If you're after 10-bit color though the video card you now ...
  • This book is an excellent source, i use it, although it doesn't cover the additional functions added by upgrading the firmware. Link: ...
  • The 'horrible' images thing may have been true even two years ago but it's not  something I notice often now.  As far as 'thorough understanding' it's not as they say rocket science and the ...
  • No using RAW doesn't require a wide gamut monitor just like a Ferrari doesn't require high octane fuel!  The car of course will run much better with it and if someone gets a car like that I'm ...
  • Replied in Color space
    1. Don't know 2. If you shoot RAW setting an sRGB space would not show the full color range 3. Epson 4900 has more inks and bigger color space 4. Lot of work and expense 5. A wide gamut monitor is ...
  • I used an Epson R1800 for years running the waste ink into a bottle.  It finally gave up the ghost and I moved to a 4800 which was an ink clog nightmare but it did have a waste tank that I ...
  • You're going to Italy so I suppose quality of the photos is going to be very important!  I had the 14-150 and would never even consider taking it over the 12-100 even with the added size and ...
  • Yes I get paid for images and it's enough to cover my expenditures on photography.  I must admit though at least some of my purchases are purely to satisfy the new toy syndrome!
  • In answer to your original question: I spent over $3000 on camera body and lenses, $1700 to build a computer, $800 on a printer and $1200 on a wide gamut monitor (all prices USD).  Not to mention ...
  • Even though the 5000 has anti-clog technology it's still meant to be used frequently. The 800 on the other hand is consumer friendly that can be left inactive for a couple of weeks with no ...
  • I use the Hawking WIFI Printer Server which has connections for four usb printers. It supports multi-function printers and will let you use any printer even non wifi printers on your wifi network. ...
  • I have the M5 MKII and the Olympus 12-100 lives on it and find it is the perfect travel combo.  How much more would this setup be in Australia?
  • Owned the P800 for several months. 1. Never use the printer for settings always use the software to adjust. 2. After reading your post I did a head alignment 3. After owning the Epson 4800 which ...
  • I have the Eizo CS2730 and am very happy with it. It is a native 10-bit screen (some have mistakenly said it isn't). If you want the 10-bit in photoshop you'll also need a Nvidia Quadro, AMD ...
