HP’s new range of 24- and 44-inch photo printers bring some innovative ideas to the large format market and are capable of producing some cracking prints.
The flagship Z3100 model boasts a 12-ink system: 11 colours and a ‘gloss enhancer’. An eight-ink model – the Z2100 – is available for users with more modest demands. Both printers are available as moderately-sized 22-inch models or as studio-dominating 44-inch behemoths.
