I used my new Epson 7900 yesterday for the first time! WOW! 24x30 prints are great!
I had no problem to install and configure everything, except I still have to fine-tune colors (using the right ICC, the soft-proof on in NX2 is less reliable than soft-proof off; it wasn't the case with my 2880). I still have to experiment.
For now, my question is this: how many 24x36 color landscape photos can one expect from a new set of 350ml ink cartridges? I print on Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper and on Breathing Color Lyve canvas.
In other words, is it worth to buy the set of 700ml cartridges for someone who prints the equivalent (in 24x30 size) of 50-100 prints/year ?
The control panel on the 7900 has just the information that you are looking for! Go to the Menu>>Printer Status>>Job History. It gives the total ink usage for the last ten jobs you have printed. It reports ml of ink used including cleaning and cm2 print area. Remember, that you can mix 350 and 700 cartridges in the 7900.
