  • I am sure there are studio photographers using manual settings.  Maybe even an occasional landscape photographer.  Manual works poorly for many other styles including sports, wildlife, kids, ...
  • You can buy a cable that attaches to the hot shoe and the remote flash.  You can also buy a separate flash trigger that uses IR to communicate with the flash. I find these options unnecessary.  ...
  • Check with experienced pros.  You will find the vast majority use Aperture priority almost exclusively.  Next would be Shutter priority often used for wildlife to control motion blur.  If you ...
  • I doubt you are going to be satisfied with metallic papers.  You want that neon glow.  There are two choices.  You will have some success with prints on aluminum and the correct lighting.  Acrylic ...
  • If you need 50 mats of different sizes, I recommend you spend about $100 for a very serviceable Logan mat cutter.  Cutting your own mats is simple, quick and will save you a lot of money. You can ...
  • Since you already know Photoshop, you are miles down the road.  Since you are shooting Canon, you might want to try the Canon DPP4 software.  It is sort of a Lite version of Lightroom.  I use it ...
  • That should help a lot.  The club I joined as a new photographer met weekly and did competitions with critiques, offered workshops and lectures from pros and in addition provided opportunities to ...
  • You are asking the impossible.   Modern cameras are great but that doesn't mean you will instantly become a great photographer or even master the camera settings. You can learn a lot on your own ...
  • I have been using Cone inks for the 5 years I have owned my 3880.  I have never had any issues with magenta or yellow inks or with any other of the Cone inks.  I do have some OEM inks harvested ...
  • I have the 18-135 .  I also have the 15-85.  I prefer both the wider angle and slightly better image quality.
  • Good papers at good prices.  I also really like the 17×25 sheets.  Why don't other manufacturers get it? I don't want to do a big crop so I can print on 17x22 paper.
  • Where in the world did you come up with this silly argument?  Do you even have a hint as to the "solvents" used in 3880 ink? Personally I have no idea where Epson got their 5 year life estimate or ...
  • I am hoping to extend the life of my 3880 for many more years. I use Cone inks and print about 24 16x24 prints and 50 or so 8 1/2 x11 prints per year. I try to print at least something once a ...
  • I am curious why you want a "protective" spray.  What are you trying to protect against?  Sprays do little to protect against handling, airborne contaminants or scuffing.  With modern inks, UV ...
  • You do not need to wonder. RR discusses OBAs on their webpages: http://www.redrivercatalog.com/infocenter/articles/optical-brighteners-in-your-inkjet-paper-2.html The bottom line is that customers ...
  • I see it is now available on the RR webpage.  I like metallic paper for some prints, especially for sunsets and images of water with lots of silvery  colors.  I have quite a bit of the old ...
  • It would help if we knew what size prints  you are trying to hang.  I can let you know what I do and perhaps something similar would work. I make a lot of 8 1/2 x 11 proofs.  When I get back from a ...
  • I like Nielson 15 aluminum channel frames with a black matte finish.  I get mine from Frame Destinations.  You are going to be in range of about $45 for acrylic, frame, mat and backer.   For just ...
  • For most cameras the standard aspect ratio is equivalent to 8x12.  I print on 8 1/2 x 11 paper and never print borderless.  My final print size is about 7.2 x 10.75.  For a matted print, the ...
  • I think you are right that we are likely to hear from people who have had an issue or are trying to resolve an issue.  I know someone who has used a 3880 for 10 years.  She has done no special ...
