Did anyone get a chance to see (in person) the release of ImagePrint for the ipf5000? Look good?
Michael, any ideas as to when you might be reviewing the software?
I'm waiting to see if an ipf5000 with ImagePrint is going to be a worthwhile trade off in size and price over an HP Z3100 24".
As I understand it, ImagePrint will not only give you a RIP, but access to profiles, negatting the need for sending out targets or doing it yourself (with the added cost and learning curve). The HP will give you built in profiling, but A) will it be good enough, and B ) will the HP software do enough to negate the need for a RIP?
With the ipf5000's now getting dropped by $500 it should be a good $1500 (that's with the RIP) less than the Z3100 24". Is a 7" difference going to be worth the $1500? That's certainly going to be a different equation for each individual.
I'm on the sidelines until ImagePrint for the ipf5000 and the Z3100 are both knowns. Can hardly wait!!!!!!
