Technical Support / monitor and printer calibration
« on: December 21, 2014, 10:25:13 PM »
Hi all

I've just read Dylan 777's great post on what printer do you use and it got me thinking about my printer.

I currently have an Epson R2880 and calibrate my monitor using Spyder 4 Express.  I use Ilford Gallerie paper and use the correct profile from the Ilford website.   

I only do prints for myself, friends and family and print mainly A4 or A3 sized paper. My problem is my prints come out way darker than my monitor is showing.

I will look at home at the Lightroom softproofing as I've never done that and generally print direct from CS6.

Any other ideas or help as to why I am printing so dark?

Thanks in advance for any advice


EOS Bodies / 70D or 6D

Hi all, I've been following the site for a while now and just signed up today.

I'm looking at upgrading from my 600D which I have really enjoyed using and learning from.

Without seeing any real hands on reviews and images from the 70D quite yet, I am keen to hear some thoughts on which camera you guys think would be a good upgrade.

I am not interested in the video side of things, only stills photography.  It is not something I do to make money, but I do get a lot of enjoyment from photography.

I like to shoot landscapes, but also with 2 young kids like to photograph them too.

I'm looking at either the 6D or the 70D when it comes out.  I have a friend who shoots with a Nikon D800e and he always recommends the full frame route.

I'm also wondering if the price of the 6D will drop at all when the 70D is released.

I'm just interested in opinions either way.
