I tried it this way and I must say I am really pleased with the results. The quality is far better than I had expected! I have printed a lot of black and white photographs and I must say the cartridges dont run out so fast as some people are saying.

I love my 2400 print quality. Main reasons for upgrading are 1) Print size larger and 2) local store that sold me explained the Huge savings because of inc price difference. He explained that the 2400 cartridges had about 6ML at about 13$ and the 4800 Inc Casste are 110 Ml at about $88. Coming back home I looked at the 2400 ink cartridges and could not find the quantity of ML included in each cartrdige. Been searching the web to no avail does anyone know what i sthe amount of ink in 2400 cartridges?? I just upgraded from 2400 to 4800 that I will receieve in two days and am very excited about it.

I have seen the 7800's example. Looked pretty good. Most of the info here is for B&W prints which I have no interest in. I will be printing art work on 140# watercolor paper. I have heard a lot about K3, ultra etc. Is there an artist doing this and do you have any advice for me as far as the machine and the ink? Will it feed a dekle edge through. I would like to print 5X7 and 15X22. Also can you print on waterslide decal transfers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If so, any suggestions please what to do? I bought my first R2400 last December. I have been using Hahnemuhle papers (mainly matt, 220-290g/m, A4 up to A3+). When the printer began to misfeed a couple of weeks ago, my local Epson repairer replaced it with a "new" (possibly reconditioned) one. This second machine has also started to play up. I've tried various papers - Epson and non-Epson and various sizes and the printer does not grab the paper in the sheet feeder. It clicks and clangs, seems to pick up the top sheet and then just leaves the sheet sitting on the stack. Grateful any suggestions before I throw it out the window! Love the machine, get great images, but don't want this frustration! Has anyone had problems with the R2400 misfeeding paper? If so, any suggestions please what to do?

Trouble is I'm now totally confused - I'm just an amateur photgrapher who loves printing off photos to albums. I have the new iMac and print through iPhoto or Photoshop elements usually onto Premium glossy photo paper. Up to now I've only printed colour but with my new Nikon D200 I want to experiment with black and white as well. I would prefer a printer that works magically out of the box! The R2400 looked like the one to get but there seem to be issues with compatibility on a Mac. Any recommendations? What a great site!

I just picked it up 3 days ago and printed one test print. I find it exiting and can't wait to re-print all of the work I have hanging in the house. I've been using athe epson 1280 and the 2400 is my 5th Epson printer I've purchased in several years. My system is calibrated throughout and I always use the print with preview option in photoshop and the proper paper profiles for what i'm printing. I'm on a Dual GIG G4 running system 10.4.5 with no problems. My printer was easy to set up and worked immediately from plug in. If anyone is having problems connecting the printer drop a line and i'll see if I can help. Thanks again Jeff and good luck to all. p.s. Here is a link to a Black and white Print group if anyone is interested. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DigitalBlackandWhiteThePrint/ Hey Jeff,

Then click on the black and Update. This seems to get the printer to recognize that the inks have been changed, when it forgets!

I just got an Epson R2400 and have been very happy with my first B&W print on a glossy espon paper. A little be disapointed with the lack of good deep black on the velevet one. Anyway, not being a professional myself, my A to Z color calibration is not great, my laptop screen beeing very flashy..I would like to find a way to sort of sampling various brightness/contrasts on small size paper before printing on A3 as I was used to do with my wet dark room. I thought I found it with the "Epson darkroom print" software provided with the printer, but apparently it doens't link with the advanced B&W facilities. Is there a way to do it with Photoshop or with an other printing prepapartion software? Thanks to all in advance, Michel from Paris. Thank you very much for this great non review.
