Review Epson Stylus Pro 3880

Ernesto Santos (esantos)

When I first heard that Epson was about to introduce a desktop printer in the 17 inch-wide category and after reviewing the specifications I was a little puzzled. At the time I owned Epson’s other 17 inch printer, the 4000 Stylus Pro. What made me skeptical was that the 4000 was the first and only (at the time) pro-line printer in the Epson line that allowed for both matte black and photo black inks to be installed simultaneously.

Frequently Asked Questions on what film to use

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

Once again, this is one of the most common questions we see at photography forums. Both by beginners and even advanced amateurs. It is not easy to keep up with all the film offerings, even now. Yet, infrequently there is a site that offers a thorough, easy-to-follow, complete guide to select among the more than 115 possible choices we fortunately still have for 35 mm photography. This is our contribution in that direction in the hope it proves itself useful to fellow Nikonians. Read more...

After using for long a white card with a rubber, various solutions came to market and I have successively used most of them. Read more...

Review: Think Tank Modulus Belt System & Airport Addicted Bag

Jason Odell (DrJay32)

Most of the Nikonians I have met have a “dirty little secret”. We are bag junkies. While we can go on ad nauseum as to why a certain lens or camera is superior for a given application, we become baffled when confronted with how to store and transport our gear. Let’s face it, if there were a “perfect” bag solution out there, we’d all own it by now. Read more...
