Not sure if this has been previously addressed.

My Epson 1200 is not long for this world anymore. Thank God!!!

Now looking at both the Canon i9900 and the Epson 2200. Anything that prints up to 11X17 will do.

My major concern is not price, and not ink costs. All though those always enter the equation. My main concern is finding the easiest printer to attach that will come the closest to printing what I see on the screen, with the least amount of chasing around. Thats right, color management, ICC's all that confuses the hell out of me. I have color calibration for my monitor, so I just need a printer that comes with the necessary software to calibrate it to my monitor..

Am I still dreaming???????????????

Thanks
Shadow

Yes....u r dreaming..........actually, I've had very good results with the epson or Bill Atkinson profiles you can get from the epson site. My friend has a Greytag-Macbeth calibrator(the $1500 one) that does your monitor, scanner, printer, etc. I profiled my printer and the results were better. Not by much though. I think the printer profiler is great if you are using different types of papers and you can then make your own custom profiles. I would stick with epson.

I don't personally have any experience with the Canon printer but I have 2 Epson 2200s and they kick ass as far as I'm concerned.. Investing in a bulk ink system isn't a bad idea either. At $12 a pop those 7 cartridges will put a hole in your wallet quick...

The Epson R800 is perhaps somewhat superior to the 2200 - it solves the "bronzing" issue that is apparent when gloss prints are made on the 2200. Letter size and smaller prints are absolutely stunning.

I read somewhere within the last day or so that Epson was introducing a 13x19 printer with the same technology.

I would investigate that printer if you are serious. I think that the 2200 is at the end of its product life cycle.

Good Luck, Steve

Epson just announced the R4000. Wide format and inks that last forever.

I have a Canon i9900 and A Epson 2200s the i9900 has a cover on it to keep the dust out and off it!
Go Epson or that how I call it! I just don’t care for the Canon. The print quality is not there at lest for me!

I have the Canon i9900 and to me, the print quality is AMAZING!
I don't use any of the profiles, and the prints still come darned close to matching. I did notice that it varies depending on the paper choices, but once you find a paper you like, just stick with that one. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
I use Ilford Smooth Pearl...the prints come out dry, and match very close to my monitor with no special ICC settings.

I am by no means an expert, but I am VERY, VERY happy with my Canon i9900.
