    Problem printing with Epson SC-P800

    Hi, I'm facing a strange problem trying to print on an A2 paper using my Epson SC-P800. I first tried printing and the print area was reduced to about a two thirds of what I had specified. Here's a picture of the results from this error, which I encountered twice. On a third try, I tried...

    Submitting images to a photo contest

    Thanks everyone for your input! Do you have examples of contests that would exploit participants by taking the rights to the images submitted in the way you mention? Sounds like the organizers in these cases are thinking very short-term as I would guess contests like these would quickly receive...

    Submitting images to a photo contest

    Hi all, I’ve recently become interested in submitting my images to some photo contests and thought it might be good to first ask advice from more experienced photographers in order not to make all the rookie mistakes. I’m not completely new to photography in general, having been an enthusiast...

    Framing an A2 print (from P800) - workflow questions

    Hi all, I've recently started printing my own images with an Epson P800 and am looking to matt & frame them myself, too, as soon as I learn how to do that and acquire the necessary supplies. Having watched hours of tutorial videos on the subject both on Lynda.com and YouTube, I found the...

    Speeding up merging HDR photos and panoramas in Lightroom CC

    Hi, thanks everyone! If Lightroom only uses up to 4Gb of RAM, why is it that it has to use the significantly slower scratch disk, as it does in my case when stitching panoramas? Are there some limitations built into the software? Also, Braineack, why would you reccomend Microsoft Image...

    Speeding up merging HDR photos and panoramas in Lightroom CC

    Hi! As an enthusiast travel photographer I do a lot of HDR, panoramas and HDR panoramas. I merge the photos as an HDR dng file in Lightroom and also stitch the panoramas from the Nikon D800 raw files or from the dng files (in case of HDR panoramas) in Lightroom. The problem currently is that...

    Printing for the first time (Epson P800)

    Thanks for your tips! I'll have a look at the links you posted, KmH. How often would you recommend to print to avoid the ink-wasting cleaning procedures? This is something I've been a little worried about even before buying the printer. Is there an easy, most preferably cheap, solution to...

    Printing for the first time (Epson P800)

    Ysarex: Thanks for you help! I'm a little confused about your suggestion to "calibrate and profile the printer with each paper stock used". I've calibrated my display, as I mentioned, but how do you calibrate and profile the printer? And how is this done specifically for certain paper stocks...

    Printing for the first time (Epson P800)

    I just bought the Epson P800 and am now ready to start trying out with the very first prints of my own as soon I get the printer set up and installed. Even before buying the product I tried to read as much as I could online and watched tens of hours of training videos on the subject. However...

    Battery heated gloves for winter photography

    I’m going to Finnish Lapland for a week in January and it’s probably going to be very cold there, around -10°C (14°F) during daytime. As I generally get my hands cold much quicker than most people, I’m looking for a solution to be able to spend some time shooting outside despite the weather...

    GPS system for D800

    Thanks! After doing some more research and asking around, I think I'll get the Dawntech unit mentioned also in the link joamul posted. I noticed that they are selling this Eco ProSumer M model, too, which would seem to be suitable for the D5200. My girlfriend has this camera body and I thought...

    GPS system for D800

    I’m looking for a GPS system for my D800 to geo tag all of my photos on the go. I have previously never geo tagged any of my shots so I have zero experience in all of this. What is required of the product is simply the ability to record location data on the files themselves. Not making the...

    Buying my first printer

    Thanks again for your input. Now, as I mentioned earlier, I understand that making my own prints will not come cheap and also have considered the trouble I need to go through to learn the color management part and so on. However, I think I'll still pursue this because for me getting the image...

    Buying my first printer

    Thanks for your comments! I recognize the problems related to infrequent printing. However, I think printing my own images might develop to be an important part of my photography and I've been aiming at this for a long time. So I think I'll have to work around the issue somehow. As for the...

    Buying my first printer

    I’m an enthusiast photographer, have owned a DSLR (currently D800) for about three years now and have so far only presented my work online. Recently I’ve found myself more and more interested in printing my pictures and hanging them on the walls at home etc. So, in the near future, I’m looking...
