New Epson Printer

05_Eps_Thumb_560x340_shEpson has rolled out their next photography and fine art printer in the SureColor P-Series—the P800.  This is a 17-inch wide model that looks to be the long-awaited Stylus Pro 3880 replacement.  Using the same UltraChrome HD pigment inkset as the previously announced 13-inch P600 (except with 80ml cartridges), one can expect the deepest blacks in the industry and superior longevity.

The 3800/3880 models have had a loyal following for years, representing the most compact of 17-inch professional models.  The P800 is an evolution, with improved inkset and connectivity, and also now offers an optional roll paper feeder for panoramas or serial printing.  More information can be found at Epson’s site, and Keith Cooper has a thorough review of a preproduction unit.  Availability—June 2015.
