  • Epson R2880 Photo Printer Does Color and Black and White

    Posted on October 14th, 2008 Staff Writer

    We all know that sharing digital image captures is easy through email, blogs, and photo sharing websites such as Flickr! However, printing your images to share with family, or stick into a photo album, can prove to be a bit more difficult of a task. Either you need a good printer, or you need to spend a little extra to have them printed professionally.

    If you’re one of those that likes to have a lot of pictures to pass around, you may want to think about investing in the Epson R2880. Not only does Epson have a good reputation, but their hardware is consistantly improving. The R2880 does photo printing right, which is due in large part to the 8 cartridges of UltraChrome K3 inks. In other words, the transitions between colors on most printers can change from matte to shiny in appearance, especially in blacks – but the R2880 maintains consistancy between shades.

    In addition to the improvement in the ink, the particular algorithm used to translate the colors from screen to print was developed in conjunction with the Rochester Institute of Technology. This translation is known as Radiance technology, which is unique to Epson. When compared to other inkjet printers, the difference is as noticable as the bands that others will create between colors. Also, black and white prints come out astoundingly close to the appearance of traditionally developed black and white photography.
