Though I was raised and grazed on film I have no qualms admitting I haven’t shot a roll of the stuff since August 2001 (with a Nikon N90 and Fujifilm Astia in case you’re curious). I appreciate film, respect film and certainly miss the disciplined aspects of shooting film, but at the end of the day I’m perfectly happy with digital imaging, warts and all.

While the name “DNP” may not ring familiar to you when thinking photo printers, the name “Sony” most certainly does. When Sony decided to spin off its popular dye-sublimation printer business, DNP Photo Imaging America took the ball, changed its name, and ran with it.

With the arrival Epson’s Stylus Photo R3000, Epson has narrowed the gap between their prosumer photo-quality desktop inkjet printers and their larger-format, Professional Imaging inkjet printers. In terms of physical size and technology, the Stylus Photo R3000 (aka the SP R3000) is both larger and technologically more advanced than the Epson Stylus Photo R2880, which it supplants as the top gun of Epson’s prosumer desktop line-up.*

The earliest recorded evidence of migration of data from one media format to another goes back to ancient Greece, when shortages of papyrus forced the Greeks to seek an alternative medium, in this case parchment, which in addition to being both readily available and inexpensive, was far more durable than papyrus.

The most common file formats used today for photographic applications include JPEG, TIFF, DNG and an assortment of proprietary RAW formats. There are others including PNG, GIF, BMP, PSD, PSP and a few more, but for archiving purposes it’s more sensible to stick with JPEG, TIFF, DNG and RAW.

Your choice of storage media is an equally important part of the archiving-process equation, and here too there are choices to be made. Among the options currently available are CDs/DVDs, portable hard drives, larger-capacity flash drives, RAID systems, and your computer’s hard drive, which should be viewed as a short-term solution.

The first three chapters of this series had to do with storing and archiving digital image files, which aside from a collection of electronic “ones,” “zeros” and whatever form of storage device they’re housed in, are intangible.

That being the case, Konica Minolta has introduced a new lineup of laser printers designed to address a variety of office-based needs.

If your photographic prowess pre-dates digital and you were serious about image quality, there’s a good chance you have a cache of chromes that hasn’t seen the light of day (or your light box) in quite some time, which is a shame because aside from occasional private showing in your living room, you probably have a number of celluloid treasures and no practical way of sharing them with others.

If you’ve been taking photographs regularly over time, chances are you’ve amassed an appreciable number of photographs that when asked, you gladly share with others. The trouble starts when you haul out a cubit-thick pile of unedited prints, which even for the staunchest of family and friends, can be as agonizing as a trip to the dentist.
