What Paul said. The 9900 is a production machine, and although not as clog prone as the 4900, it likes to be used and used often.  However, the other thing to consider with costs is the ink. If you produce enough prints, you can get 700ml cartridges for the 9900 which brings the cost down considerably from the smaller units with smaller cartridges. I'm sitting quite comfortable with 350ml cartridges for most colours and they'll last me about a year (even though Epson recommends you use them up in 6 months). But then again, I print quite a bit, every week.

Diglloyd. Overpriced for what you get. Nasty attitude to go with it.

I go back to some familiar places regularly for several reasons.  They are close and don't require a lot of effort in travel and other arrangements.  I have specific knowledge of these places and can shoot under different conditions and know what to expect.  There's always the chance the place and conditions will align and you're able to craft an image far better than what you already have.  There is a sense of serenity that comes from familiarity with a natural area.

I used to love to go to Cripple Creek before gambling took over.  The stories of the Gold Rush days are really interesting.  My grandfather's second cousin was the Sheriff of Teller County during part of the gold rush times.  I haven't been to Cripple Creek for years now.  Maybe I shouldn't go back?

I have merged panoramas shooting both ways and the result is different.  IMOP the horizontal looks closer to reality, and the vertical looks like the Rt and LT  have been squished towards the middle_- the results are definitely different.  Do the comparison and judge for yourself.  I seem to prefer the horizontal merge, even though it results in  smaller file-- but still big enough for large print considering that many files are used.

I keep hearing these ads on the radio that Epson is doing, promoting their dye-sublimation printers that cater to the fashion industry. Print your own textile designs from home, be your own designer. You don't hear ads on the radio from Epson or Canon talking about printing your own high-longevity photographs for galleries and museums, collections, and portfolios, that's old fashioned, like many of us old timers.

Wow. What radio station do you listen to?

the colormunki photo arrived. perhaps a good point to mention for newbs is that with preconditioning, one has to copy and paste the .icc file from the spool\drivers\color (win) folder into the bin folder of argyll Smiley 

Here's a similar article I wrote when testing out Argyll for printer profiling. I also got very good results.

The Hp Vivera MK ink that was developed about 8 years ago has a dmax of about 1.8, so what Epson has done with a "blacker" black isn't even catching up to the innovations HP figured out almost a decade ago.

1.8? or did you mean 2.8? 1.8 sounds like black on matt paper.

I am in Northern California and your mention of these Roland printers is something I'm going to look into.  Thanks for the tip. I always enjoyed seeing work made on the Rolands.  The output seemed closest to the old 9000, 9600 and 9800 printers I've owned.  Mat black dmax upgrade from the 9600 to 9800 a big improvement.
Interesting that my 9800 and 4800 are now a decade old.  No service or major nozzle problems during that time.  Guess it matters that these printers are used regularly.  Seems the temperature and humidity in Larkspur, CA a good match for these printers.
Paper improvement over the years has taken a big leap forward along with canvas and silk substrates.  These older printers handle this work well.  Nice to have  friendly digital tools that are still working well a decade from purchase.  Can't say that about many other areas in the digital world.  No complaints since most digital purchases based on significant improvements to camera megapixel count these days from Sony and Canon.  A perfect match for those of us who regularly print 20x30 prints and larger.  I do enjoy my 30x40 prints but hate the thought of paying for framing them.  Framing the business to be in!

I'd be interested in pointers to the various "confidential" manuals and threads that you have found useful in how to maintain the 9900.

The manuals can be found via an Internet search engine:

You'll have to search the forum yourself.
