  • This is exactly what we've been considering - but we have 12' ceilings so we might want two rails.  It seems that if we just use the mats and adhere them directly to the wall, we wouldn't even ...
  • I'm concerned about how the wall will look after hundreds of hangings...hence leaning towards removable adhesive backing...
  • Does Gatorboard protect the edges? Where do you store it after displaying?  I'll be swapping out exhibits once a month or so, so thickness is a major consideration.  Thanks!
  • Excellent idea. Where do you store the foamcore-mounted photos after you display them? I'm expecting to do monthly exhibits of 30+ photos.
  • Good points, thanks. We just don't have the place to put each photo into preservation frames. Though we could 'show' one or two in frames that could he included with any photos that we actually sell
  • Yes we are probably looking at a similar solution. The problem with velcro on the print is, it will be difficult to store the print after it has been shown. One option we are considering is to ...
  • Interesting ideas. I definitely don't want glass.  I've got a 24" printer so that will handle most of my needs. What I'm looking for is a light solution to take prints, hang them temporarily, then ...
  • Yes I've been looking at the HP's because they seem to have a much better form factor which would work in my tiny gallery/office. But of course that alone should not be the reason to purchase a ...
  • Hi David, Thanks for the info, much appreciated.  Does the new Epson perform nozzle checks automatically, like the HP and Canon do?
  • Thanks. Excellent advice.
  • Is there a reason why those initial repairs were not covered by the initial warranty? My understanding is that extended warranties normally extend beyond the first year.
  • Hi Mark, Thanks for your thoughtful comments. Can you explain a bit more about what you mean by lightfastness?  Is that lightfastness over time?  And have you used Epson and Canon for comparisons? ...
  • Hi Gesture, Would you recommend the extended warranty that some manufacturers offer?
  • HI Joe, As a photographer I travel often for 2~3 weeks at a time. You mentioned automatic timed cleaning cycles.  Can this be done automatically while I am away?  If not, I wonder if there is a ...
  • Created discussion thread Help! 17" or 24" Printer?
    I've got a small gallery. I'll be showing about 25 new pictures each month.  Some of those will be very large (30"x40" or more - but I will have those done by the local pro shop).   I'm looking to ...
  • Rumor has it, Nikon will release a high res mirrorless camera next year. I wrote a short review of the A9 on my blog last month .  In a nutshell, there are only two downsides to this camera.  1) ...
  • Sounds like 105 and less is probably better for indoors photography unless you are shooting in theaters. I have the Batis 85 and absolutely love it but for candids and street photos I prefer ...
  • There is a rumor about a 135mm f/1.8  Sony lens coming "later this summer."  I'm waiting for that, then for comparisons between this and the Zeiss Batis 135 f/2.8.
  • Here is a link to the article. Would be interested to hear from you, how your 105/1.4 worked? https://blog.qamera.com/blog/2017/5/28/a9-and-action
  • By shadow mounting, do you mean that you have them offset from the wall in order to create a shadow? Also, how do you handle the constant change of photos?  Do you have a fixed system? Thanks again ...
