Star Trek Museum is in FOrt Ticonderoga NY.
You can see videos made there when the sets were used for Star Trek Phase2 and Star Trek New Voyages.

princecody: I thought Epson was photo printer King??

I have a 44" z3200ps since 2012, do low volume orinting,
I have replaced the heads once. when I had my X-axis belt replaced last year.
Heads were still usable, but were slower because of nozzle reassignments.
I bought a set of heads on EBay for uder $100.00
I also replaced the pads in the service station, that was more necessary.
A few $100 tweaked the printer back to like new.
I keep my printer in a temperature controlled area and run it usually once a month for a few prints, with a few bigger jobs sctattered throughout the year.

On article Leaked Panasonic firmware update is made official (53 comments in total)

I was hoping the fz2500 would get some of the same updates.
I guess not....

If DPreview needs some one to review a Z9+.
I will happily compare it to my z3200ps or provide test prints for comparison.

I have a Z3200Ps I printed a 32megapixel CGI renderng (8k Video format) of the USS Enterpise for the Star Trek Museum from an uncompressed TIFF. Pixel for pixel it was printed at 200ppi(1200dpi) 44x66"

The Detail was amazing you could put your eyeball on the page and see furniture in the rooms in focus. The Deflector dish looked almost 3d.

HP's Z3200ps is very high quality and works better in low volume situations.
The heads clog less than the Epson.

An error in the press report it is 9 vs 11 ink, or 10 vs 12 since one of the z3200's ink slots is gloss enhancer.

Curious what the vertical cutter does, does it ust trim margins, or can you cut out fatheads and odd shaped photos and stickers?

For My use, I am likely to stick my z3200ps 44". I will have to see if the print quality is really noticeable for the stuff I print.

It will be a prop in a Star Wars Movie, next to C3-PO!

Sony A7III should get replaced by GH5 for video events over 30 minutes. or if you need 4k60p.
I use an FZ2500 because I can't have a gap in the video 4k30p recording.

A slightly used / refurbished (4 year old )Panasonic FZ1000 is still the best value ....$650 !

.

I get shots using the Full zoom of the FZ1000, you would need a much longer lens than the 85 and possibly a Tripod to get the shots I am taking with a FF camera. I am able to Take shots s=zooming in in Steps so you can see the everything from distance to closeup.

I shoot events where the other Photographers are using either full frame or APS-C using a FZ1000. The Long Zoom lets me get pictures that the other photographers can't shoot without changing lenses, and would miss because of the time the lense change takes.

On article Hands-on with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 IV (321 comments in total)

I would have hoped for 4k60p at that price point, but whether it i worth the money will be the still/video Quality. I am Happy with my FZ1000, for 1K less right now.

When they patent a flexible curved sensor that adjusts to the lense installed they will have something...

fabulousrice: Not everyone:
1-likes the possibility of shooting unlimited amounts of photos
2-likes carrying around batteries, charging, having batteries die on them
3-likes having to renew their equipment every other year to entertain the financial needs of the digital industry
4-likes the idea that your digital photos will disappear when you die and / or a few years later when your hard drives do
5-likes absolute control, absolute sharpness, absolute mainstream looks
6-likes spending hours getting their eyes damaged by computer light to "retouch" photos
7-agrees with the idea that "hey the world is moving on everything is digital deal with it". Actual artists and creative people create things in the physical world
8-has a definition of photography that is "pressing a button and effing around at the stuff on a computer until your butt falls off"

I shoot both film and digital, I have seen how they age, and I do not have as much faith in digital

you can create 200 year archival prints from digital images, you need to use pigment inks not dye inks for archival prints especially if you are not putting them behind glass.

I work in aerospace, so no complaints, but you could find out what cameras and lenses they used.

On article Dell announces 4K HDR10 monitor (88 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThrillaMozilla: With a 27 inch monitor the pixel size is around 0.3 mm. Years ago, 300 dpi (0.08 mm) became hopelessly obsolete for laser printers because everyone could see the jaggies.

Now I find that I often go to my 4K TV instead of my very good 2K computer monitor to see how my prints will look. I very much welcome 4K in spite of the cost.

I bought a 4k tv so I could get a better previews of posters for plotter.
On a 1080p screen a poster could look fine but would have unwanted thin lines left in the image.

In reply to:

Guimar: I may have missed it, but the review left out the biggest advantage for video this camera has for video, it allows recording until you fill up the memory card or the battery runs out, the others have time cutoff limits.
It doesn't matter how good the image quality is, if it shuts of 30 minutes into a 1 hr shoot.

Stop restart takes more than 2 sec on my FZ1000, many cases speaking is done by a panel of people, when someone wants a drink of water they have another person speak. Time limit is a killer for me.

I shoot conferences with hour long lectures, 30 min time limit is a fatal flaw.
