Now Sold: Epson 1290 Printer
« on: August 20, 2016, 18:51:03 »
I haven't used my printer for a while, so it's available to anyone interested.
Because of the size it probably makes most sense to people here in the UK.

It works, but will need new cartridges & a good flush through and clean.
In return, it should give you great A3+ prints, plus the option to use roll paper and produce panoramic shots
(I've done one over 5 feet long from it!).

Because it's old, it's available for the price of a good bottle of Malt Whisky, plus carriage.

And just to confirm, this printer will work from normal A4 sized paper, normal A3 size and the unusual A3+ size.

It's quite useful if you want to proof something before sending a file off to a full professional printer. However the quality is also good enough for many purposes. Whilst doing a tidy up of my office, I found several prints I'd done 7-8 years ago and their still in perfect condition.

This is to confirm this item has now been sold.
In true eBay style I'd like to give some sellers feedback:

Ease of doing business with Rosko?           - Faultless
Was delivery/collection straightforward? - 10/10 (Rosko came to collect)
Any problems with handover?                    - Straightforward: We also discussed many other photographic matters
                                                                           and discovered a mutual interest in macros & wine

Just to add, I'd much rather pass gear on to a fellow enthusiast on Nikongear, than sell blindly on the internet
Thanks again to Bjorn, Andrea, Jakov, Eric, Janne & others for keeping the wheels turning here

Colin: I can confirm that Francis is just wonderful. We cooked together, traveled together ate together, had a great hiking day, ....
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

High Five. That's us. No more, no less.

Don't worry, we'll forgive you - already have.

Back on topic, glad to learn your printer found a nice NG home.
