When I upgraded I had an email exchange with Jon and decided to just go with abw.


I've had a few "exchanges" with Jon myself  :icon_wink:  I will probably get back to Piezo strictly for the dig negs and platinum. I've done a couple of platinum workshops with Don Messec, Making Art Safely, and his system is centered around Piezo negs. However... 11 inks is NOT necessary for the Piezo system. In fact, they don't use all of the 11 inks in the 4900. The P600 is definitely something I am considering. At the moment I don't have the room for the printing equipment that I "want" so it's the most likely candidate


Quote
The difference 9vs11 inks may be hard to really perceive but companies like Epson will push for the higher end model. I guess it might also offer bulk inks which can save some cash.
I went with the p600 abw to save some money and can have fun making smaller prints. If there is a reason for a larger print,  I'll just pay Michael to do it for me because I know and trust his attention to quality prints.


I've done too many printing workshops and put too much work into making fine prints to give up on it now. I've lost track of time but it's been at least an 8 year "mission".


No doubt about it, Michael does amazing work. I don't know how he finds the time for it. And, when I really need a couple dozen prints for a show I usually need them at the last minute.

I have no clue what you two are talking about, so maybe it's time to split this off to the Photography Gear and Tips forum?

Awesome! I plan on taking some photos when I get out there in a few weeks. What settings and lens did you use to get that color shot of the mountain range and the moon?

Hey there, oddly enough, you could have taken that picture yourself. It was with my Galaxy S7. I might have decreased exposure but other than that maybe full auto.
Some of the photos in this thread were taken with the S7 and some with my 5D. As far as DSLRs go it's a dinosaur coming in at 11years old. Both are 12mp. I like the S7 for wider shots (I believe the 35mm equivalent is like 27mm) and I love having a 50mm on my 5D. I usually use a 40 year old lens (super takumar 50/1.4) and love the results.
The processing of the color images to black and white is all done in Photoshop. However, that color photo you mentioned was straight out of the phone.
