    PRO-200 review info

    Less steel girders - not as obviously as Epson have done with the 700/900 It still feels very solid, but I've not taken any of the printers apart. That would be my sofa - hers is across the room ;-) The prints usually end up reappearing up in my office...

    PRO-200 review info

    no idea really - I don't have any profiles from when I tested the pro-100 several years ago. Personally, my best reasons to ditch a 100 are its paper/margin limits and usability - of all printers I've tested in the last 10 years it's the one I disliked the most ;-) That made my 200 testing much...

    PRO-200 review info

    I've now finished my main PRO-200 review http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/canon-pro-200-printer-review/ and made a video to go with it. I've still got the PRO-200 and 300 here if anyone has any questions I might have missed in the review? I've a few more articles and videos to go with...

    Starting with PRO-200

    Too late - it went into the printer a few moments after I took the photo :-)

    Starting with PRO-200

    I've started testing the PRO-200 for a review and remebered how interested people were with the 300 and the print head serial/part numbers ;-) This is the PRO-200 head The full review is unlikely until after Christmas, but any specific questions, just let me know?

    A look at the P900

    OK, since I get asked a lot, I've broken my normal habit of never doing comparative reviews ;-) A shorter (8m30s) look at the P900 vs. P700 https://youtu.be/-8Un8lqjwuE Shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who knows my like of large prints ;-)

    A look at the P900

    I wish - I only started doing them properly in August for the PRO-300. YT might eventually pay a small amount, but I'm not expecting it to fund more than the odd lens cap ;-)

    A look at the P900

    It's been a tough one with my original P900 being stuck at Epson after needing repair (a shipping related problem) Actually a significant difficulty was that the P700 and 900 are so similar to each other that I had to keep checking that I'd not missed things that I thought I might have already...

    A look at the P900

    After a while with a P900 here (and a P700) I've finally finished a review, if anyone's thinking of getting one http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/epson-sc-p900-printer-review/ I've also a video (~20mins) which covers most of the features https://youtu.be/lhQxfFrJoSc Both are still here, so...

    Looking at the P700

    Indeed, I realised a while ago that people who actually buy prints don't get the magnifying glass out. I think it's also important to go through the range of 'quality' settings with a new printer and see what actual differences there are, as opposed to any that marketing might 'suggest' ;-)...

    Looking at the P700

    The density values are the usual standards, (status T etc) https://xritephoto.com/documents/literature/en/L7-093_Understand_Dens_en.pdf Of course just how useful Dmax values are for most people printing their images is a vastly different matter ;-)

    Looking at the P700

    It uses some colours. The effect is distinctly different to what I've thought of as 'bronzing' over the years. The clue for me is the range of colours, which look like interference colours from very thin layers. It looks very much like the effect you'll get heating a sheet of steel from...

    Canon PRO-200

    On a less contentious issue... It's being introduced on a market by market basis, so whilst Australia has it, other Canon regions will be introducing it in due course (I have no dates or any official comment). I hope to have one at some time to look at in detail ;-)

    Looking at the P700

    One thing I'd note is the chromatic variation of the (ABW) bronzing I see with the P700 - they look like interference colours, subtly different from what I've called 'bronzing' in the past. The nearest I'd suggest is the sort of oxidation colours you someitimes see on steel where some heat has...

    Looking at the P700

    It cannot be refuted - but I can say it's an irrelevance to many people :-) The P700 replaces the P600 Glad to see I was 'completely wrong' about the tanks rather than just mistaken :-) As to your assorted conjectures about Epson and Canon's motivations, I can't really comment, other than...
