I see this as a good deal. A set of 3 fixed length tubes from Nikon is over $270, a similar set of 3 fixed length tubes from Kenco is $129, and a "Savage" variable length tube is $198, all from B&H. None of them have tripod mounts. A flat Arca style plate alone is over $50 from Kirk or RRS, so considering the complexity I'm surprised it's so cheap!

I don't do a tremendous amount of closeup or macro work and when I do it is usually with the Nikon 5T and 6T diopters on the 70-200mm f/2.8.  I really enjoy having both the zoom (variability) and the rotating tripod mount.  I own the Kenko tubes and an old PN-11.  I just think if you are going to have a 50mm tube, then a rotating tripod mound should come with it.

Which matte canvas are you using?

If you've never seen it, the attached is pretty darn handy. Pages 7+ gives you ink limits, black ink type, etc of various HP media types. Pretty helpful when starting the process to decide for new 3rd party media.

You can see from the tables that all three of these canvas media types have identical ink limits, rendering and printing resolutions, # of passes, and carriage travel settings. In other words, it shouldn't much matter which of those you select, according to this HP doc.

Good luck.

Maybe some screen shots of the printer dialog boxes and your Lightroom panel?  I print on 13x19, 17x22, and 24x30 sheets all the time without any issues like this.

Yep, I print everything from US letter to US ARCH D (24" x 36"), without anything but the occasional skewing problem.

There is longstanding use of ipf Canons printing on cottons, linen and silk, all using the standard Canon aqueous pigment inks.  You can wash them and iron them and get a good image using "Special 10" and the color sliders in the driver.  Search the Forum for relevant posts.

Hi, I'm not sure if you can do that in the main view of the develop mode. However, using the second monitor function (which will display a new window if you don't have two monitors) you may compare to a different image without exiting the develop mode

From the develop module

- Click on the second screen icon or F11 (Windows, don't know if it is the same in Mac)

- In the second monitor you can select "Grid" and choose the images to compare
- Select "Compare" in the second monitor

Any edit you perform in the develop module will show in the second monitor
If you have only one monitor, toggle between windows with F11

The lens was the Oly 40150/2.8. Very handy close-focusing capability, which I put to work here.

Antonio, how do you like that zoom?  I've heard great things about it.  I'm just about to order one from Hartblei that comes as a tilt/shift kit for the Sony.

I'm surprised how often I'm asked to make an enlargement of another photographer's print, even a print that's in a published book! Few knew that it was wrong to do so, or even that it was illegal. Such is the thinking in the Internet Age that is awash in billions of images so easy to copy. One individual told me that an employee of Kinkos turned down that copy job for that same reason so he thought he's see if I would do it. ??!! Maybe I'm too shifty looking.

John, it makes total sense to me that Epson would expect to be paid for the next incremental step in their research and development. Yes, they want to sell ink, but you can be certain that they would like to sell more equipment as well. There have been many passionate complaints about Epson's shortcomings in these pages but I'm still amazed at what I can produce on my old 3800. Smiley Blows my mind. Epson deserves the praise (and the profits).

The P600 can be purchased in the US for $799 while a single P600 ink cartridge is $31.99 with, as you know, probably very little dealer markup. X 9 cartridges = $288 for just one new set of ink cartridges. I lost 5% of my ink this past week on my brand new P600 printer due to "auto cleaning" cycles with very few actual prints to show for it. So, approximately $15 in the first week just wasting ink (this is 750 per year for wasted ink irrespective of the actual ink cost used in making prints at this current very low volume amateur printmaking rate). Pretty much any one can do the math on where the money is being made and why amateur home photo printing is not a growth market.

GM owned 46% of the American car market in the 1970s. Complacency took its toll.. The new Epson printers appear to be doing nothing to fix the chronic complaints.. just sayin...

kind regards,
