I have an Epson 2100 and am very happy with it except for the bronzing effect. If I were to upgrade what A3 printer would you recommend please?
I have heard the Epson 2400 is very good, any advice very welcome. Thanks Folks x

The new Canon A3's are awesome, and their new inks are great. Not that the Epson 2400 is not, But I think you'll find the cost of running a Canon more economic.

Quote:bronzing effect

I think this effect can be reduced in the printer setting`s by setting the print speed slower.

Everything else being correct a sneaky way that was recommended to me to reduce the bronzing effect was to add a Levels adjustment layer and to shift the left slider in the Output levels to between 5 and 10.

Epson 3800 well worth a look. The footprint is a bit larger than 2100 but I have had an Epson 3800 (A2) printer since January and am very pleased with the results. Even the "canned" profiles work well, although I currently use the Imageprint rip in conjuction with it.

I use the Epson R1800 and have never had a problem with bronzing. The R2400 comes out very highly rated in reviews.

Seeing the 3800 mentioned ... a friend bought this printer, not because he wants to produce A2 prints but because he believes the running costs are lower than for the R2400 on account of the larger capacity ink cartridges. The purchase price is higher, but his comment was that you get so much more ink supplied when you buy it that it doesn't cost that much more than a R2400 and equivalent amount of ink. He is very happy with the results.
