Re: HP D7260 printer opinions?
Hellena--NO!!! The R1800 can be made to work with diginegs, but the inks I used were just marginally UV blockers. The OEM inks were not much, if any, better but were a LOT more expensive. The R1800 did, however, make color photos that are impressive, even with my cheap inks.
For negs I had to desaturate the images--obviously giving me black and white--and use the highest ink setting (RPM, whatever that stands for). No color blocked UV enought to get paper white. If alt printing is your main goal, stick to another printer.

I gather from this mail that you would recommend the Epson R1800 for photo-alt work with UV light? Hellena
