I was particularly interested the Epson SureColor P807 printer (Asian version of the P800). It has the same set of colors of 3880 but it has a reformulated pigment technology for an increased density range.
Making a black and white print is easy, but how good is your black and white print is another question.
I have never seen a person refine faster in the craft of photography than a person who just started to print their work.
Aside from what printer to purchase, one of the most common questions I get to be asked is what paper to choose.
