I started a few years ago with photo printing and own several printers for different purposes. The high end model is a Canon Pro-1000 only used with OEM inks followed by a Pro-100s. The second one is better to transport to others for demonstrations, but still an incredible printer. I use it with with OEM inks and inks from Precision Colors. For my family , friends and children I often repair clogged printers. Mostly after use with cheap inks. So I can also make tests with other printers with different inks and papers. Therefore I know also a lot of Epson Printers. Some of them stay longer in my "printer hospital". As an engineer and hobby mechanic sometimes I try longer to repair as useful, but so one gets a lot of informations. I hate to throw away things, which may still work.
I am hobby photographer, but sometimes I sell prints which I all make with the Pro-1000 on different papers.
I also have a i1pro 2 and make all profiles for printing myself.
