Thanks! I love working in the darkroom. I mostly do Lith prints but I haven't had it set up for about a year now because I moved. I also do wetplate collodion which is a lot of fun. But there again I haven't done it in awhile. I have the whole mobile darkbox,etc setup. I would love to take it out to big bend.Printing is getting to be really nice. I'm all set up with the latest round of tech to make them the way I want. I haven't really had anyone want one though....haha. If you need a printer profile, my friend Michael Gordon makes great printer profiles and shows you his workflow which is excellent and I've adopted myself. http://www.michael-gordon.com/page/customRGBprofile/
I never did get into platinum printing but wanted to. I also wanted to make digital negatives for lith work but never got around to it! Last summer I bought a p600 and I'm satisfied with using abw. I used to have piezo inks and a 2200 but decided to move away from them on my next iteration. Here's one from oso/tapado canyon
You'll have to look into the differences but the p800 does 17" rolls. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1264154-REG/epson_scp800des_surecolor_p800_designer_edition.html
When I upgraded I had an email exchange with Jon and decided to just go with abw.
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.
