ConsHigh price for an inkjet printer

Having finally converted from 35mm to digital photography a few years ago the EPSON 2100 inkjet printer is probably the final piece of my jigsaw. At last the high quality images produced by my Olympus E10 camera can be matched by prints that jump out from the page with their colour and clarity...

Product Information : Epson Stylus Photo 2100

Manufacturer's product description

Epson continues to set the standards in inkjet printing. With the Stylus Photo 2100, a new level of excellence is achieved. Fulfilling the creative needs of professional photographers, the Stylus Photo 2100 is a complete photo finishing solution, offering the most exceptional print quality ever. Immensely versatile and flexible, it produces long-lasting photo-quality prints suitable for both display and resale use. Epson has worked hard to meet the exacting requirements of professional and semi-professional photographers. Its recent groundbreaking advances in inkjet print head technology give photographers the quality to create their work in the versatile digital environment. Minute details are recreated with astonishing clarity at high speeds due to Epson's Variable-Sized Droplet Technology, combined with a new Micro Piezo print head. Epson's Stylus Photo 2100 uniquely offers two varieties of black ink that can be interchanged to offer consistent quality and finishes between media types. The professional user can now match output between various grades of media. The standard "Photo Black" ink cartridge is suitable for all media types including glossy surfaces, whilst the optional "Matte Black" cartridge offers superior output on matte coated media such as fine art media. Further enhancements include an additional light black cartridge as standard. This improves gradations to both color and black and white images, widening the color gamut to enhance grayscale and color tonal gradations. Epson's "Gray Balancer" software is designed to calibrate and customize the grayscales used in black and white photo reproduction. It gives you the flexibility to adjust the application of ink according to the conditions in which prints will be stored or displayed. The results are perfectly balanced, smooth-toned, vibrant black and white photos. Whatever photography style is employed, the Stylus Photo 2100 has the flexibility to match the output requirements. 7 individual ink cartridges with re-sealable valves allow for flexible and efficient ink usage as partially used cartridges can be stored for use at a later date. In addition, the Direct CD printing function and software enable personalization of CD faces without the need of special media so cataloging digital images has never been simpler. Processing bottlenecks are eliminated due to the extensive high-speed connectivity options.
