iPF6450 with optional SU-21 Spectrophotometer unit
Canon iPFx4xx printers – the 6400/6450
After a lot of testing, I’ve published a whole series of reviews connected with the Canon iPF6450 24″ wide format printer.
The iPF6450 is essentially the same as the iPF6400, but with an internal hard disk.

One of the nice things about the many printer reviews I get to do, is that I get to try out a lot of different papers for my prints.
However, when I was recently at one of our client’s I was shown a printable polypropylene film that worked with [...]
The SU-21 spectrophotometer attached to the front of an iPF6450
I’m currently testing the Canon iPF6450 24 inch wide format printer, which came with the optional SU-21 spectrophotometer unit.
I’ve documented the full set-up procedure for the SU-21 spectro, since for our printer review, I initially started off looking at just the basic iPF6450.
Moonrise – only one part of this image needed -any- sharpening
Why images from your camera need sharpening
An awful lot of uninformed comment about the need for and desirability of image sharpening clutters up forums. Myths and misunderstanding spread far and wide, and the temptation to ignore image sharpening, because it’s contentious, is [...]
Epson R2000 producing a wide panoramic print
We’ve been testing Epson’s R2000 A3+ printer with a range of paper types and images.
For what is a printer at the lower end of Epson’s larger pigment ink based printers, I have to say that I was very impressed by its print quality, particularly when matched [...]
The Canon PRO-10 A3+ printer is the second in the new PRO printer range, and supersedes the 9500 mk2. I’ve had one here a few weeks and have written a longish review.

How much better are cameras and printers getting?
Future modular camera
Are the reasons to upgrade your camera kit getting less and less?
I’m very lucky to have a job that I enjoy, as a professional photographer, and via the articles I write here, having the opportunity to try out new equipment and software.
I’ve been using DxO Optics Pro for some of my RAW processing for several years – It’s what I’ve chosen for many of my images that I produce as large prints.
The latest version (V8) offers a range of improvements to image quality and overall workflow, and I’ve written a detailed review, looking at [...]
After lots of testing, I’ve finished one of our longer printer reviews.
Review Link: Canon Pixma PRO-1 printer
For an A3+ printer, it’s pretty huge, weighing in at around 60 pounds. This makes for one of the quietest printers I’ve looked at, and one that isn’t going to jump around your desk.
Quality wise, [...]
