Thick fine art sheet stock. No Longer Available Update Location close. Against It’s a thirsty beast. I’ve only been using it for a year, so I’m not really sure what the duty cycle will turn out to be, but in that year I’ve made thousands of prints from 4X6 to 13X To date I have not tried the black and white capability. What a great printer!!!!!!

All in all, a great printer thus far, notwithstanding the high cost of the ink and the rapidity with which it is depleted. And with a maximum resolution of x optimized dpi, the Epson Stylus Photo R reproduces the most intricate detail.

I’ve been using this printer for just a couple of weeks, and it has changed the way I approach working in the digital darkroom. The R manages to do all that’s asked of it and more. Previous Equivalent Items Owned: In truth, you can be up and printing in as little as 10 minutes.

The R lacks a support in the back for the paper, which I guess makes sense for thick, stiff stock, but I’d feel a lot more secure if there were at least a piece of plastic back there.

The secret is to realize that there can be a curl in very thick sheet paper that keeps it from sliding through the front load slot during initial insertion by hand, also to be sure that manual front feed is selected even if the printer driver screams otherwise.


Epson Stylus Photo R – Epson

Epson inks have been developed to work flawlessly with Epson printers to deliver crisp, smudge-proof text and vibrant photographic images that will last for generations. Your email address or other details will never be shared with any 3rd parties and you will receive only the type of content for which you signed up.

The printer is easy to use right out of the box, and I found the software easy to install on my Windows XP home computer. The R not only gives me the same clarity and sharpness I was getting at the photo lab but, I no longer have to worry that some of the gray tones look as if they want to jump off the sheet. It also can optimize each photo, depending on the paper type, with interchangeable photo black and matte black inks. You still have to physically swap the matte- and photo-black cartridges, however, which is a major pain.

Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. I’ve only been using it for a year, so I’m not really sure what the duty cycle will turn out to be, but in that year I’ve made thousands of prints from 4X6 to 13X The Epson Stylus Photo R’s ink-carrier design works like those of most printers: As I learned more about the printer I started printing 8x10s.

Having trained 40 years ago in intense dark room technique I have turned a critical eye to digital printing and I can enthusiastically recommend this affordable and high quality tool.

To validate the quality of what I was getting I sent two photos of to Kodak for printing to verify that we were both getting the same results.

Mechanical dependability–ease of operation and no glitches to speak of contribute to my opinion concerning this excellant instrument.

I still haven’t forgiven Epson for integrating the monochrome-challenged Ultrachrome ink set into the R and excluding the R’s red and blue inks from the UltrachromeK3 set in order to create an artificial distinction between the two: Yes with optional or third party RIP.

Like clowns in a Volkswagen, the number of paper-handling accessories you pull out of prihter Epson Stylus Photo R’s box during setup seems endless. But when your images mean everything to you–especially if they’re black-and-white–then the R is the printer to own.

Just so you know, I am a big Epson fan.
