Epson Stylus Photo R3000
The R3000 includes a roll feeder for large-format panoramic printing, giving you the ability to supersize images. The nine pigment-based inks (26ml cartridges) include photo black, matte black and two greys, for good-quality mono and colour prints. However, the photo black and matte black inks share a channel in the print head, which needs to be purged when you swap between glossy and matte media, wasting ink and time. An A3+ print takes just under 11 minutes in top quality mode and, despite lacking a gloss optimiser cartridge, output looks smooth on glossy paper.
