Though we (the millennial generation) don’t seem to care about the print that much, I can tell you from experience that seeing one in person creates magic in a person’s eyes. I’m not just talking about a print from a printer–although you should note before going on that this is fully a review of the Epson Surecolor P600 printer, but you should understand the background here.
Shoot an instant photo and someone will become mesmerized. Then hand it to them and they’ll be awestruck though may not necessarily know what to do with it. And that’s where I’m guilty.
Admittedly, this printer review took significantly longer for me to do than any other unit that I’ve reviewed. Why? It’s very easy for people like my and my generation to get caught up with the digital universe and stop being curious about the tangible things. It’s not that readers here don’t care about printers, we’ve found that you genuinely do in our experiments with the site. But instead, it has to do with the setup, finding space in a small NYC apartment, and getting it going. And like many people, we’re all afraid or put off by that very first initial step.
We barely print anymore: go get tickets to a concert and someone can scan your phone’s screen. But the Epson Surecolor P600 isn’t about that kind of print. It’s about art–and art is what keep that magic held in our eyes every time ink goes onto canvas and matte paper. And for a price point significantly lower than some cameras and lenses, you can’t go wrong.
