Look at any printer supported by the Lyson Quad Blank inks.

B&W isn't supported as well as i'd like in inkjets. While there are
epson solutions... The new HP photosmart is nice... but also check out

http://www.mediastreet.com/cgi-bin/tame/mediastreet/qua...
Someone already linked you to lyson inks which are another option...
i've not tried either. I have seriously considered picking up an old
canon i960 and using it with various black inks.. but I have to say the
epsons are more supported than canon when it comes to odd ball
solutions like gray scale inks.

I'm looking into a printer for B&W also. Anyone have comments about the
HP 8450? All the reviews I've seen were very positive, specifically
mentioning the neutral B&W prints using the No. 100 grey cart.

www.permajet.com. Look at the Monochrome Pro inks.

Incidentally, if you want a professional camera, and a Nikon, a D70
isn't it.

I believe that MIS has gray scale inks for some Epson printers.

and I assume that the photographers still get paid. Look at features,

The 4800 will provide you with a print up to 17" wide. It's a
professional printer using large cartridges 110-220 ml, and it uses 3
levels of black (dark black, middle black and light black) which will
help to produce very neutral B&W prints of darkroom quality, if used
correctly.

Mark Leung was paid for photos taken with a polycarbonate camera.
A photographer can be professional but camera can't - it's just a tool.

Dead right :)  I know of one "professional" photographer, who shall

use it ;-)

Now I understand why some people want photographers to have provable
qualifications :)

Proven results are the best qualifications, in my opinion. A software
company I worked for, many years ago, employed a guy with a degree in
computer science. During his three month probationary period he produced
200 lines of code, about what I (a self-taught programmer with no formal
qualifications at all) was producing in a day.

I did point out to my wife that it might have been a good idea to ask to
see some of his previous work before committing to a session. It didn't go
down too well.

Oh, I agree, but I've seen some of the EU proposals for Photography
and cross EU qualification. I can understand why they want them when
you get idiots like that.

You have a death wish? ;-)

Would have been sensible though - but I can see why she didn't - a
shop front often conveys legitimacy and the best con men (which is
what he is) are good and giving an air of professionalism.

I wasn't aware of them. Are they online anywhere?

As with many EU proposals, they're no doubt well intentioned but will
probably just make things harder for the jobbing photographer. It's
already becoming difficult for good professionals to earn a decent living
because people aren't prepared to pay what the job's really worth. Most
people can't tell the difference between a mediocre photograph and a good
one, anyway.

I was at a wedding yesterday and there was no official photographer. The
couple saved ~£1,500 or so by asking friends to take photographs. They'll
probably be happy with the majority of the snaps that people took with
compacts and even phones! Especially as they'll almost certainly just make
a computer slideshow with them, so resolution won't be such an issue. They
probably haven't even thought about their g-g-grandchildren not being able
to see them if the CD/DVD they store them on gets damaged and they lose
the lot.

Not that I know of, but you're welcome to try and find them on the EU
site if you have a couple of years spare ;-)

The proposals were about a range of arts/crafts and, for instance,
would mean that you supposedly had transferable skills across the EU.
The other side of that coin was that you couldn't set up as a
photographer anywhere in the EU *without* those qualifications except
insofar as your home country allows you to - so, for example, if you
wanted to go and be a photographer in Germany without the
"professional" qualification, you couldn't.

Generally true unfortunately, though if you put a lot of mediocre ones
next to a good one, people often go "wow" when they get to the good
one :)

This is sad.
No doubt in the usual manner of nanny-state regimes, the decision making
process would be delegated to a committee made up of consumer rights
zealots with axes to grind, and experts from within the industry who
would favour protectionism to both reduce competition in the market, and
provide them with career opportunities in the burgeoning "jobs for sale"
education and certification sector.
The whole idea is based on the insulting assumption that all individuals
are too stupid to make a decision themselves, and too apathetic to take
action already available through existing consumer protection laws when
they have been clearly fleeced. If there is a non-legislative
free-market model, then something like the "Michelin Star" rating for
restaurants might be workable. The viability of this idea relies on the
possibility that private sector inspectors - for whom credibility is
based on performance - might be less inclined to respond to "incentives"
than state employees, for whom credibility is protected by legislation.

Actually, it would be down to a qualification for which you sit an
exam.

Doesn't make it any more useful of course - I know a fair number of
people who have no trouble passing exams but a lot of trouble putting
the knowledge to practical use.
