In the weeks before I requested the loan of their newest top of the line photo printer, I'd been hearing good things about Canon's photo ink jet printing from possibly the most critical of sources, my contacts in the color management business.

When I read this press release headline, "Canon launches world's first film scanning capable, bus-powered 2400x4800dpi CIS scanner," I was intrigued. Then learning that the CanoScan LiDE 80 also features 48-bit color depth, only requires...

Canon's new EOS 5D full-frame sensor digital SLR with 12.8-megapixel resolution set off a lot of speculation and opining in the electronic ether, which was to be expected. What was surprising was that it launched an argument as to what is affordable for a professional-grade digital camera. Since I got into photography in 1952, automobiles have increased in price about 10...

About a year ago Canon announced new pigment ink professional wide format printers for the US market.

It has been well over a year since Canon announced the Canon PIXMA Pro9500. In fact, I was so impatient that I requested the opportunity to try out the professional Canon imagePROGRAF iPF5000 17" 12-color ink model (report published in the March 2007 issue of Shutterbug, and now online at www.shutterbug.com). So now the question is: does the consumer-oriented 13" Canon...

For all of you still not into computers, some of digital photography's many advantages are available without one. Although I had some doubts coming into what I am about to propose: to use a digital camera and then print directly from it without a computer in between; I can assure you that...
