If you're interested in printing your own photos rather than sending them to a lab or taking them to your local camera shop, you may be interested in Epson's announcement that it will release a new printer in March.

According to B&H Photo, the Stylus Photo R3000 Inkjet Printer, expected to sell for about $850, is a versatile photo printer, compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems. The printer connects to your system via USB 2.0, or to a network with Ethernet or 802.11n Wi-Fi.

The printer can print on sheet paper up to 13 x 19" in size. It also accepts both sheet and roll paper, supporting prints as large as 13 x 44". It accepts many types of paper, including photographic paper, fine art paper, canvas, art boards, and inkjet printable DVDs and CDs.

The Stylus uses Epson's UltraChrome K3 ink system, which features their exclusive Vivid Magenta pigment-based ink. It also features multiple types of black ink. This allows the printer to reproduce both stunning color and black-and-white images.

The printer uses an individual ink cartridge for each color, allowing you to replace them as needed. Each high-capacity cartridge holds 25.9ml of ink -- more than a standard cartridge -- ensuring that you'll have to change them less often. The Stylus's MicroPiezo AMC print head is 1" wide and features 9-color, 8-channel printing technology. This allows it to place dots with accuracy and precision, and also reduces the need for maintenance.

By the way, I don't print my own photos; I'm too happy with the great job done by Cameras Inc. in Arlington. How about you?

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
