I'm just about to purchase the Epson 4000 printer but have been hearing rumors that Epson may be coming out with a replacement soon. Does anyone have any info on this. Epson is offering a rebate on the 4000 so that usually means something is in the works.
The rumors are correct. More to come after release date next week.
I saw the new Epson 4800 a week ago in Brisbane Australia, where the entire Epson range of products was demonstrated. I have no experience in digital - just moving into it - and have not seen prints from the 4000 but the quality of the 4800, 2400 were superb in B/W which is my interest. The quality of the R1800 in tonality and sharpness was outstanding too but I only saw colour prints. The price premium of the 2400 over the R1800 was about 45%. Naturally the 7800 and 9600 were as impressive as you'd imagine huge prints would be!
I read the article on the Epson 4800 in Shutterbug and went to the Epson website. They are saying they will be shipping eary June but, so far, so one has it. Does anyone have any information?
