Re: Which Printer?

I think that the answer to print head blocking is to turn the printer on and off on a regular basis, say every couple of days. This cycles ink through the heads.
I am keen to get a new A+ printer after the demise of my 1290 a few years ago. It would be the R2880 and I would use it a lot for camera club and other competitions. I like the control of the image but on the other hand there are some great commercial print houses out there - DS Colour Labs are really good, and inexpensive.

E-M1 Mk2, Pen F, HLD-9, 17, 25, 45, 60 macro, 12-40 Pro, 40-150 Pro, 12-50, 40-150, 75-300, MC-14, MMF-3 (all micro 4/3rds), 7-14 (4/3rds), 50, 135 (OM), GoPro Hero 3, Novo/Giottos/ Manfrotto supports. Lowepro, Tamrac and Billingham bags.
