Re: filmscanners: OT: Epson C-80
I have had one for about 3-4 weeks and I am impressed with it (and I just
bought another for my son). Colors are very good with Epson's stock
profile. Prints are excellent on Red River Matte, very good on Epson Photo
Paper S041141, but faded on my Red River Premium High Gloss (I had bought it
for my hp Photosmart with which it worked well - I guess Epson's pigment ink
doesn't work well with it).
I just received a new sample pack from Red River and am waiting for the
Lysonic sample pack to see how other papers fare.
If you like I would be pleased to print out the Photodisc target or other
image on such paper as I have and mail it to you - just provide me with your

Subject: filmscanners: OT: Epson C-80
| I know this is OT, but I was wondering if anyone has yet worked with the
| Epson C-80 printer?
| Back at Comdex here last March, Epson asked me for a list of things I
| was looking for in a printer.
| I told them my wish list was a 4 color, 3 picolitre printer which used
| pigmented inks and separate cartridges, that didn't used the "chip" and
| had a 16-20" carriage.
| Well, I suppose four out of six ain't bad...
| The C-80 is only an 8"-8.5" wide printer and it does have chips in each
| cartridge, but otherwise it is just what I asked for.
| I saw one today, and it is not very costly (under $300 CAN, which should
| mean well under $200 US), but I'm just wondering if anyone has run it
| through the paces yet?
| Hopefully, this is a precursor to a new 3000 model...
