Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who are either professional photographers or serious amateurs, some with decades of experience, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Here is how to proceed and what to expect:

I am in the market for epson claria hd ink cartridges for my epson stylus r260 color printer. (tO78 series) Should i stick to original epson inks(cartridges) which are expensive or should i try remanufactured ink cartriges for this printer. If someone has used remanufactured ink cartrides what co have they purchased them from and is the print quality the same as with the original epson ones.

I have the workhorse 500,and my ink cost is about $70 for a round of 4 cartridges, so I know your pain. I have tried the remanufactured inks 3 different times, alwAys with the same dissasterous results. Either the printer didn't recognize the cartridge,or ink was disbursed everywhere except on the paper. I will forever more stay with EPson inks.

Check this out. This is where I buy my Epson inks from. It is a cool website and it explains a whole lot of things about ink that I bet you did not know. It surprised me! Very reasonable cost and the results are excellent. No problems whatsoever.

If you deviate from Epson Ink and Epson papers, you are likely to run into problems. If you have the equipment to produce ink/paper specific profiles you should be Ok. If the ink or paper manufacturer provides profiles for the ink/paper combination, you should be Ok.

Other than that, take the pain!

I've personally had disastrous results from aftermarket ink in 3 previous Epson printers. Shortly after using cheap ink the printer head clogged up or some similar malfunction. Plus the ink faded.
I WILL NOT use anything but original Epson. My CX9400 is 6 years old and is used constantly. It is still printing great on Epson ink like it is new. My new R3000 photo printer will only use Epson(9 cartridges times $31. ea.)

Don't risk it. Occasionally you can find deals on Epson ink and paper on Ebay.

There are many inkjet printer ink suppliers to choose from. However, some are better than others. I prefer the known good type of refill inks. I have several types printers. I have tried many types of inks, suppliers, head cleaners and supply systems. At present, I have the outside tanks on my Artisan 1430, refillable type in my XP-600, replaceable tanks in my NX230. And others also. Each one is available at instant use. I use nothing but ink supplied from IZZY, at CCSDIGITAL.COM. I recommend his services very high. For several years, I have used his type of inks and replacement units with excellent results. Since I changed to his service, I have had very little problems compared to others I was using.
This in not a commercial for his services but just a recommendation for my good service in the past few years.
