Rich -

I agree totally with the choice of the Nikon LS-4000 and 
Piezography.  Nothing is better for getting everything out of every 
negative and printing it with carbon pigment on beautiful papers.   I don't 
understand why anyone would go with a smaller printer like the 1280 and put 
up with the potential problems of CIS when you can get a refurbished 3000 
with huge ink cartridges that last forever and the ability to print larger 
prints on thicker papers.

Some 3000's had a banding problem which was fixed with the latest driver 
from Jon Cone.  My two refurbished 3000's and many more have never had any 
problems of any kind - no clogs, no banding, no CIS, and inks that last 

Your ultimate start up set is almost perfect.  You just need to include the 
3000 as the ultimate printer.
