No kidding. Then I shouldn't have to worry about clogging with the 3880. Or be less concerned. I guess if I leave it unused for too many (4-5) months the nozzles will still eventually begin to clog. ...

Thanks for the link. Will read it tonight.

I won't be printing like a maniac either. Which is why I was considering the R1900. Though, I could wait between print jobs and do one or two mass print...

Good to know. Thanks.

Actually, the salesman at our local camera shop Vistek, recommended the 3880 over the 2880 or 1900 too. :) I wonder if the 3880 doesn't out sell the other two.

Any how...

I'm guessing the AMD Phenom™ II X6 1055T would be the 6-core Athlon. And as I said I doubt I'd notice the difference between it and an Intel i7 equipped desktop (Dell 9000 or iMac). Unless I had the...

I think, being that I'm printing mainly for me, I should be happy with the results using a calibrated iMac & Epson photo printer (R1900 or R3880). As long as the difference in color between what I...

Thanks for the suggestions Peripatetic. I know it can be done. If I'm willing to go for a 24" monitor vs a 27". A lesser Dell desktop...etc. But I do want the largest screen I am willing to pay for...

I know some good photographers who haven't spent any money on a wide gamut monitor, a hi-end printer or colorimeter. Seen their prints. Looks very good to me. And I know they don't try to color match...

Yes, it does in the end depend on how accurate a match am I looking for. I've read in other threads how iMac owners defend that they can get a good match with the printed photo. Though that is...

Thanks TCav. Guess I might just buy that 27" iMac after all and save some coin (vs. buying a Dell studio xps desktop outfitted to my liking and a 27" NEC multisync). I was wondering about that. Have...

Calibrating monitors & photo printers

If you can't also calibrate your camera (I'm not spending $1800.00 for a colorimeter/software that can...I know it's possible) then will the print not look slightly different from what you saw...
