Re: filmscanners: OT-ish Epson 1270, was Repro house..
Regarding output prints from Epson printers for consideration as
material for color separations, today I took a closer look at some
samples of the same image printed on Epson Glossy film versus Premium
Glossy Photo Paper and Photo Glossy Paper. Although the difference is
not huge, the glossy film did provide better detail and deeper, less
posterized, color. (the samples were printed with Photo 700/750 models).
Although the glossy film does cost a minor arm and leg, for repro
purposes, it might just be worth it. I wonder if some of this increased
resolution is because it is so thin that the heads are a bit further
away from the "paper" surface, allowing for less splatter or "velocity
related dot gain" (my terms)? If not, I would be nice if Epson could
take this film with its coatings and adhere it to a heavier bases, since
it is vulnerable to kinks. It is a pretty amazing product in terms of
print quality, but inappropriate for most applications due to its flimsy
nature and cost.
