This news is generally for photographers and fine art and graphic designers who run their own business. But I suggest all the people reading it to imagine that they are photographers or graphic designers willing to choose a new device to their own photography studio which will best match their needs. So, recently, Epson has launched its new SureColor P5000 professional inkjet printer.
What do we have here?
1. The printer uses 10 different ink colors including two new (comparing with the predecessor models) green and orange cartridges. It offers the widest contrast ratio (thanks as well to the black color which is 1.5 times denser now) and produces optically sharper images. Even if it’s my first pro printer the above mentioned sounds respectable.
2. The hardware improvement allows to solve common problems and enhance productivity. I mean a new ink-repellant coating and dust resistant design of the new machine together with a new resin encapsulation technology of the printer’s nozzles providing a better gloss uniformity. Not bad.
3. The widest choice of media sizes and weight and auto switch from standard to rolled media loading broad capabilities of the printing process. Sounds reasonable.
The Epson SureColor P5000 is already available under $1,995 … I’m going to call my accountant to calculate the budget!
