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

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.

Colin, thank you for your kind words.

It was nice to meet you. I am glad to know one more NG member. :)

I hope you will find soon a buyer for your R1 C1 flash package. Regarding its condition, I confirm that is a real bargain indeed.
