No one should jump to the conclusion that Epson's new Stylus Photo R800 is just a smaller Photo 2200, although at first glance it would seem to be. It is logical to assume that not all photographers who want to make fine digital prints want to also...

In one sense ink jet photo printers are very much like 35mm SLR cameras. There are a number of mass-produced, relatively inexpensive models that target the amateur and enthusiast photographers, and then there is a high-performance model specifically designed...

For quite a few years now digital photography enthusiasts have looked to flat-bed scanners as a way to serve all of their scanning needs in one device. Technology improvements and the "natural" drop in cost relative to performance has resulted in substantial consumer enthusiasm, which fuels ever more research and development. The latest result of that progress is...

Scanning is most effective when hardware and software work together. It’s a bit like some black-and-white film developers that mix Metol and hydroquinone for a super-additive outcome.

The new Epson V700 Photo/V750-M Pro Perfection scanners remind me of the very first Epson professional scanner I got to know over 10 years ago. The resemblance, however, is largely superficial. Even though the new V700 and V750 have a shape similar to the Expression of over a decade ago, these new Perfection scanners reflect an entirely different era of scanning performance. While...

I always find it a nice icebreaker to show my pictures to people I meet on my travels. I also make it a habit of giving a small print to people I befriend. And the small print costs me pennies. Plus, 4x6 prints are so much easier to tote around than 8x10s. The problem is producing these minilab-size prints. I've wasted numerous 4x6 sheets because of a wrong setting in my...

The Epson Stylus Photo 1280 has been going strong for almost six years now, and you'd think that Epson's replacement model, the Stylus Photo 1400, must be exceptional to be worthy of replacing such a venerable printer. While the idea has merit, the fact is that Epson's letter-sized, dye-ink photo printers, such as the R380, already have new inks; the 1280 was the...

Epson has been a very active company over the last few years, offering an abundance of new printer models that I am sure has been both confusing and a welcome support for photographers doing digital darkroom work. One of the great benefits for many has been the introduction and refinement of pigment inks, which provided much greater print longevity than dye inks. This was...

Challenge is good, and Epson's new 13" Stylus Photo R1900 presents a challenge to those who want it all--great color and great black and white printing. Its color output equals anything in the Epson line-up, while black and white is less advanced, perhaps because its target is the photo enthusiast seeking colorful, high-quality, long-lasting prints.

Three years ago, Epson brought out a solid 13x19” printer using the new UltraChrome K3 inks. This model, the R2400, was a major improvement over the 2200 it replaced, thanks to the additional gray inks and a new Advanced Black and White mode in the printer driver. Three years is nearly forever in the digital market, and people have been wondering when a replacement would come and what...

There are lots of letter-size inkjet printers on the market, but you'd be hard-pressed to find one with this much functionality and at a price of $129.

· Dye-based, letter-size inkjet printer
· Six ink colors in individual tanks

The kitchen sink mentality these days is called a "convergence device," something that does many things wrapped up in one unit. With their Stylus Photo RX620 Epson has made such a device that can be used as a family photo printing, copying, downloading, photo restoring, scanning device, etc. In short, it does just about anything you'd like with photos and prints...

Having worked with and tested the Epson Stylus Pro 4800 (Shutterbug, November 2005 issue, or type Epson 4800 in the Search box on our homepage at www.shutterbug.com) I can attest to the fidelity and quality of the Epson UltraChrome K3 inks and to the reliability of this wide format, 17" wide printer. But there were two complaints I had about the printer, which I believe were...
