Technical Support / Re: What kind of photo printer do you use?
« on: December 10, 2014, 01:31:47 AM »
I have always printed photographs[in my sixties]so when I went digital I began the whole story again from wet deck to ink jet. I have kept the canon workflow/DNA intact by using Canon printers,I currently have a Pro1 and before that   a 9000 mkII, wish I had kept the 9000.I am currently on my second Pro 1,the first was replaced by Canon under warranty,head probs and tracking marks thru print,unfortunately I would not be able to recommend the Pro 1 as my replacement copy suffers the same probs[haven't even used the initial ink tanks completely yet]most unimpressed,am trying to find money for a large format/roll feed Epson as I print a lot of B/W and at least you can change the head for a full mono one.

Thanks Eldar for your work.I have just finished watching DPR interview with US Sigma Rep, he claims all lenses ,that is All lenses are checked for sharpness before despatch,from reading prev posts it would seem the testers need their eyes tested  8) 8)

Ah you lucky Nth Americans,so many places to buy from,cheap prices,[7DII will be AUS$2300-2500]no firm date for distribution,Victoria will get it first followed by New South Wales[that's Melbourne and Sydney to you Northeners]with poor old Queensland after the others are supplied,this is if other releases are anything to go by,oh for parity with US $.

Joining photography forums for me was abou improving my knowledge and interacting with like minded people.

 Seems what I didn't realize is the immense amount of negative sentiment that gets pushed on here. The constant, rabid want for suspicion and failure is becoming super stale.

Time to move on maybe. +1

Have to agree with Sabaki,it does get a little tedious reading the attacks that get posted, no harm was caused by Ivan and I enjoyed his musings,so what if it is in a new thread....

Tried shooting my 600LII handheld,I am in my sixties and after a hard life mI just don't have the strength to hand hold for longer than a couple of minutes,please remember all photogs aren't weightlifters,more power to you who don't use a tripod,  unfortunately I need to.

Bought a Kenko for use on 7D with 70-300L worked fine ,I use it on my 6D as well,same result,expect the results to reflect that you are using a TC which will have some effect on IQ and have fun.Want 500 to 600 quality you must work hard and buy a prime :-\
