Fast, six-colour wide formats coming from Epson
Epson Australia has announced availability sometime later this year of a couple of new high-speed wide for at printers ‘for high-volume photo fulfillment, retail photo labs, poster and graphic art production’. So ‘photo quality’ but perhaps not professional photographer/prolab quality.
First off the rank at some time in 2021 is the SureColor P8560D 44-inch dual roll printer (pictured right). Then comes the 24-inch model which is appears doesn’t yet have a name. Then comes another version of the P8560 with a 1.6L ink pack. The range uses a 6-colour UltraChrome PRO6 pigment inkset, which includes a light grey and according to Epson rivals comparable eight-colour printers.
Canon RF 14-35mm f4L IS USM
Canon Australia has announced the RF 14-35mm f4L IS USM, its widest RF lens thus far, will be available from late August, and with no local RRP ‘as yet’ we must look overseas for pricing. In the US pricing is set at US$1700, or roughly $2261.
The lens has ‘quiet autofocus’ thanks to a Nano USM focus motor, 5.5-stop Optical Image Stabilizer and three aspherical and three UD elements. It weighs 540 grams, has a minimum focus distance of 0.2m and a 0.38x manification due to a rear focusing system.
