Re: filmscanners: [OT] Epson printers (Was: Olympus P-400 printer ???)
The 2880 printing uses smaller steps by the stepper motor and actually
does provide smoother tones in the mid to highlight end. The
difference in 2880 and 1440 is really only visible under a loupe or if
you regularly sniff prints, as I have been known to do.<g> At normal
viewing distances the difference is not visible. 2880 printing will
slow down the print speed considerably and probably uses a tiny bit
more ink. I would use it for my Best work, for show or sale, but not
for most of what I print on a daily basis.
