A Printing and Scanning Day

March 21, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Today I'm going to be scanning old slides and printing out new images for a showing I'm doing this coming Wednesday at the F-Stop Group at the Minneapolis Photo Center. This will be a short post mainly filled with plugs for products and organizations I am happy with. First, I'll start with my printer, the Epson Stylus Pro 3880.

I've been using this printer for quite some time now and I've got to say, this is one incredible printer. I can print up to 17" x 22" paper on a tabletop printer. With my Nikon D800, I'm able to print 13" x 19" prints at 360 dpi resolution with no need for upping the resolution of the files. The output from this printer is stunning. Since day one, I've had to do no tweaking at all to get outstanding prints. So there you have it. If you're looking for a tabletop pigment-based ink printer that will handle up to 17" x 22" paper, I don't believe there is anything else on the market that can touch it.

Now on to the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i film scanner. I recently purchased this unit after my Nikon film scanner gave up the ghost. I'm just starting to use it, but so far I'm quite pleased. I really like the fact that I can load up four slides at once in the tray.

Today I'm working on scanning the slides of my parents 1978 trip to Greece. With all the slide trays stored at our house, I've got plenty of slide scanning work to keep me busy for some time to come.

Okay, this is my last plug, and that's for the Minneapolis Photo Center. I've belonged there for a number of years now. Orie and Abby do a terrific job providing the best resource center for photography that a person could ask for. This Wednesday I'm one of the folks showing their work at the F-Stop Group, one of the groups that meets monthly at the Photo Center. Tom Arndt and Sally Mars are the two co-hosts. It's a daunting proposition to show your work to these two and the assembled group of photographers that usually runs 75-100. I'm midway through my Minnesota SNAs project, so I thought now would be a good time for a checkup. I'll let you know how it goes.
