    Canon 10s or new epson

    My problem is not jpg or raw it’s a printing problem. My Canon 10s won’t print a panorama ie 16:9 larger than A3. It needs me to pay for photoshop. And even then it’s still restrictive. The Epsom can go much longer in landscape. But do I have to use a certain program (photoshop or other) or is...

    Canon 10s or new epson

    My panoramas are complete but I cannot print them on my Canon 10s in a panorama format ie 16. 9 over A3 unless I join photoshop. Even getting photoshop it’s still very restrictive. Has anyone used the Epsom 7700?. And does it have to be using photoshop? Is it standalone? Mike

    Canon 10s or new epson

    Canon 10x30 IS stabilised binocular sticky covers

    I have had a dispute with canon over this same subject with my 12x36mk2. Although out of warranty they seemed to be implying that they were not aware of any such problems with the coatings. After many emails with some with estimate of £400 to repair or a new replacement pair with 25% discount, I...

    12x36 with glasses

    Sorry I have no experience of wearing glasses whilst using my 12x36mk2. But I have had a bad experience just lately with Canon not accepting that the coating on my bins is going very sticky, and I am sorely disappointed with there customer care, I therefore rejected their offer of a repair...
