Fun with S1/s1r

Hi Peter. I generally use the Epson printer driver with the P800 (and with my 3880 and other Epson printers in the past). I like the Epson ABW (Advanced Black and White) functionality. Occasionally I will use QTR (Quadtone RIP) if I'm not getting results I like with ABW on particular images/prints.

Two of the regular particpants in monthly color and B&W print exchanges I've been part of since April 2002 use Imageprint 10 to make their prints with a P800 and P5000. The prints do look very good.

My only complaint with the P800 is that when printing on 17 inch wide paper I sometimes get a slight paper skew as the paper feeds thru the printer. I've found ways to minimize it, but it does require some extra care.

Thanks Gary I might look into this printer it gets pretty good reviews..

It might be worth checking out the Canon Pro-1000 too.

Canon PRO-1000 printer review - Northlight Images

While I have mostly used Epson photo printers for the last 20+ years, I've also owned/used the Canon Pro-10 and Pro-100 with good results. The Pro-1000 looks very good.

Thanks for the link Gary. My benchmark is actually cost of outsourcing to pro labs V the amenity of knocking off smaller sized stuff at home. My typical print size starts at 3X2 or 4X3 feet and I wont ever buy a large printer as I'm just not interested. However for smaller sized print runs - maybe...tbh I've hung a 75inch LCD screen on a wall at home and use that for personal display...but I do want to print some small stuff around the place. books/albums are definitely imo left to outsourcing

Processed one more of the few images I took with the S1R a couple weeks ago, before the "stay at home" order kicked in. I may try to get out this weekend for little while. Get some fresh air, exercise and take a few photos. Lots of space here in Alaska to be outdoors and far away from anyone else.

Went to one of the hunting preserves a couple days ago to socially distance myself and do some shooting... of my S1R + 24-105/4.

Given the S1R is an outstanding camera in my view, we need some more image action here on this board. S1r, 16-35mm f4, F/10. Cornwall, England,
I agree Quentin. The S1R is an excellent camera with rock solid build and very good performance. I finally traded off most of my remaining Sony and Canon gear (except for some of the EF lenses) for a like new S1R and Lumix S 24-105 lens. I also have two Sigma MC-21 converters that work perfectly with the Canon EF lenses that I held back and a couple of Sigma SA mount lenses (50/1.4 and 100-400). Very pleased with the performance of the S1R with all of the native and adapted lenses. A few sample images from the new kit below.

Still exploring options with the S1R.

Laowa 14/4 Zero-D lens in L mount. Looks like this one will need a flat field DNG profile for correcting corner color casts.



First try with High-Res mode using the 24-105. Cropped to a 135 MP image and resampled 50% for posting to Flickr.
