Every year it seems that print quality gets better while prices come down. Oh, how I wish that applied to the high-end camera market! Pigment printers in the 13x19 desktop size have become the new standard for many photographers. Capable of 11x14 (and obviously larger) prints, they're a perfect match for the needs of most people, and the size and price is within range of...

First announced in February and now becoming available, the new HP Photosmart Pro B9180 is one of two new competitors to the Epson R2400 (the other being the Canon iP9500). Although 13x19 inkjets have been available for some time, including the highly regarded Photosmart 8750, the B9180 is the first pigment ink photo printer from HP, and the first Photosmart printer to bear the...

If you're an instant gratification junkie--by nature or by profession--portable mini printers give new meaning to the word instant. Edwin Land knew what he was doing when he developed Polaroid's instant print technology way back when, but with...

There's a mantra attributed to event photographer Michael Weeks:

• If you don't take it, you can't sell it

• If you don't show it, you can't sell it

• If you can't print it, you can't sell it

• If you can't take payment, you can't sell it

Many photographers love printing their images and displaying their best photos at home or at work. Beautiful prints also make great gifts for family and friends, and they’re also a great way to closely evaluate your work.

As part of our coverage each of our reporters were asked to pick out what they considered the Best of Show product, service, or idea. In most cases it is the item that caused them to reconsider how they worked or that sparked their imagination. While each reporter had their beat, this category was open game for all, and most "crossed lines" to find their pick.

It used to be that manufacturers and even us press types hailed every tiny improvement in printer technology as a major achievement. Now the honeymoon is over. We expect these devices to produce impressive color and monochrome output and do so at an inexpensive price--except for the inks, of course. As a result, photo-quality printers, except for pricy laser and dye...

The Epson Stylus Photo R1800 has been a popular choice for digital photographers needing a 13x19 format but not willing or able to spend the additional money for the R2400. Add to that exceptional gloss printing thanks to a special Gloss Optimizer, and you have an excellent option for high-quality printing at an attractive price.

But, as usual, the market...

Here’s one of the better photo deals we’ve seen recently. B&H Photo is offering a sweet $250 rebate on the Canon Pixma Pro-100 wireless professional printer, which has a retail price of $380. So, you’re essentially getting this 13-inch, 8-ink pro-level printer for $130, which is something of a steal.

Our show report this year is an amalgam of product news and trend spotting, which pretty much reflects what photokina has stood for in our minds. The sense of a United Nations of photography still prevails at this increasingly European-directed show, but the image and its uses is still the universal tie that binds.

Photokina 2014 in Germany has been covered widely on the Internet already—including our own extensive reporting on the show on Shutterbug.com—so there’s no need for me to rehash the major announcements from the event, such as the latest full-frame cameras from Canon and Nikon and the like. My photo report here is aimed at sharing some wider ranging thoughts and perspectives on this important biennial show and what it told us about photography today and where it might be heading tomorrow.
