  • Yes. When you don't understand a job it seems trivial. There is actually art that goes into typesetting. When you justify a paragraph, you can sometimes adjust the space between words in the first ...
  • Replied in re: dunkin
    There were 35mm SLR cameras that did not have a moving mirror. Instead it had a pellicle mirror (partially transparent mirror).   These SLR cameras had optical viewfinders, no viewfinder blackout, ...
  • I absolutely agree that from a marketing perspective, it makes a difference how you label your art. In terms of the technology for printing, a digital image is a digital image, no matter where ...
  • My understanding is that it is relatively easy to use third party inks in the 3800. The Cone Color inks available from Ink Jet Mall , have a very good reputation. Third party inks in the 3800 ...
  • From a technical perspective, isn't " Modern art and the medium is printed pigment on fine art paper " and " Digital photograph, pigment printed on fine art paper " the same thing? Perhaps I am ...
  • Yes.   A good dry mounting job would be better than a poor spray adhesive job. Of course, a good spray adhesive job might be better than a poor dry mounting job. . I do suspect that a good dry ...
  • I agree. However, it is not surprising that there is overlap in what the printers can produce.  It is not at all surprising that it is possible to make some prints that look the same from both. Con ...
  • My experience that Super 77 properly applied lasts for many years.  But you are correct in that it is not a good choice for archival fine art prints. But then neither is dry mounting.
  • Being able to get matching prints from two different printers doesn't tell us much.  If that's your goal, then it is easy to find images within the color gamut of both printers, and that won't ...
  • It's all about what compromises you want to make. What are you doing with the printer?  How will you be using it? Do you need archival prints?  Do you need low cost per print?  Do prints need to be ...
  • Replied in Replace.
    I recommend replacement. The failed ink valve is problematic. There are two common ways of addressing this: (1) Replace an entire assembly (reasonable labor, but high parts cost, and lots of ink to ...
  • Do you care about speed or cost? Do you need a variety of sizes, or is a printer dedicated to one size acceptable?  What is your definition of "portable"? Often, when people are talking about ...
  • It's actually more complicated than that. There are three resolutions at play, the image resolution, the printer driver's resolution, and the hardware resolution. Let's take a look at something ...
  • If you are hanging a print on a wall, you typically would have it framed and matted behind glass. If you want the print to be "floating" without a frame, you typically would have it printed on the ...
  • 3150 pixels x 2100 pixels is about 6.5 megapixels. How many pixels you need for a print depends on print size and viewing distance. Subject matter also plays a role, but we will ignore that as we ...
  • Dry mounting presses are expensive. If you only have an occasional need, it may be less expensive to pay a professional. A typical dry mounting press is open on three sides. According to the ...
  • Nikon, Canon and Sony each use their own proprietary protocols for HSS and TTL flash operation. Some third party manufacturers have reversed engineered the protocols, and produce flashes that are ...
  • Yes, there are situations where you can get the maximum exposure the camera will tolerate, and situations where you are light limited. . Let's look at the situation where you can get the maximum ...
  • Replied in Read my lips:
    Sorry. it seems I misunderstood you.   When you said compare at various ISO values, I thought you meant to do multiple comparisons where each camera was set to the same ISO value.   For instance, ...
  • Why would you compare a crop body to a full frame at the same ISO? The better comparison is at the same total light captured.   If you compare at the same ISO you are merely showing that at the ...
