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.

While most photographers spend considerable time mastering techniques for capturing and editing their images, very few are equally concerned with achieving optimum results during the printing process. If that sounds like you, pay attention to the video below, in which a British pro explains how he prints his photographs.

While most of us produce an occasional flurry of snapshot-sized or picture-frameable prints, some photographers are in the business of generating dozens, scores, or hundreds of prints at one go. Part of the package—and fun—of event photography (weddings, bar mitzvahs, trade shows, business meetings, school pageants, costume parties, and so on) is passing out or selling just-shot...

The HP Designjet series packs some powerful photo printing into a sleek and stylish format, and all at very reasonable prices. The original Designjet 130, which prints up to 24" wide, and the Designjet 30, in a more desktop friendly 13" wide size, have now been joined by the new Designjet 90 which brings 16x20" printing to the sub-$1000 price point for the first...

Epson, you have company! For years, serious large format inkjet printing has been owned by Epson with the 7000- and 9000-series printers. The pigment-based printers had a huge advantage in archival life and in the media options available, making fine art printing something that the individual could finally afford to do in-house. In the past year, both Canon and HP have entered the...

The new sweet spot for printer sizes appears to be 13x19”, or A3+/Super B. Large enough to print 11x14” photos, while still fitting on the average desktop.

Every year it seems that print quality gets better while prices come down. Oh, how I wish that applied to the high-end camera market! Pigment printers in the 13x19 desktop size have become the new standard for many photographers. Capable of 11x14 (and obviously larger) prints, they're a perfect match for the needs of most people, and the size and price is within range of...

First announced in February and now becoming available, the new HP Photosmart Pro B9180 is one of two new competitors to the Epson R2400 (the other being the Canon iP9500). Although 13x19 inkjets have been available for some time, including the highly regarded Photosmart 8750, the B9180 is the first pigment ink photo printer from HP, and the first Photosmart printer to bear the...

If you're an instant gratification junkie--by nature or by profession--portable mini printers give new meaning to the word instant. Edwin Land knew what he was doing when he developed Polaroid's instant print technology way back when, but with...
