Hi shooters, I've recently had some large (60" * 40") photos printed on canvas and have been impressed with results. Although not overly impressed with the inks ability to stay stuck to the canvas, one of the shots recieved a small drop of water and the ink ran all over the place. Some www research and I realize that my results would be radically improved by using an Epson Stylus Pro 9800, with K3 ink and some waterproof canvas - all sold for an absolute fortune by our mates at Epson.
Prior to investing in such a beast - I was wondering whether any of my fellow shooters would be interested in using it as well so I could defray some of the investment cost over time.
So my question is - how many people would be interested in printing that size shots (on Canvas or any other media) and willing to use my new printer (obviosly some commercial terms would need to be sorted out)?
If I knew another pro or two looking to do similar work then I'm willing to make the investment, but going it alone on an $8k bit of kit that I would use only every now and then would be a waste.
FYI - I'm using a Canon 1Ds MII and the results on large format are amazing, notwithstanding the 600Meg file size....
