    Hey folks, I am looking for a printer that is capable of printing panoramic images. I would prefer an A3 with paper roll capabillity and I was hoping for high quality prints. I am looking to pay in the region of £350-£400 ($700-$800) a used one is fine
    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Thanks Geoff, do you use this printer yourself? If so can you tell me is it pretty fast?
     
  4. Yes, I do use it but the speed is a relative thing and I don't know about that. All I can say is it's fast enough for me. A friend has worn out two of these doing thousands of prints including plenty of panoramas.

    Hi Geoff, is the printing length unlimited (depending on paper roll length)
    if so it would seem this is perfect for me as I can get it for £250 in the Uk.
    Thanks again
     
  6. I don't think so but you could google for info.
    How long do you want to go??

    Hi geoff, Well my last panorama was 8x vertical shots from the D2X.
    Resized to 42cm height I am guessing it was pretty long :)

    HP DesignJet 90. 18"x whatever length you require. Dye based, archival on HP papers. Low initial cost, very economical per print cost. If you need wider than 18", research the DJ130, the printer I have. 24" x whatever you need.
