Excerpt: I use the DS80 (also the DS40) for event printing. They work very well and produce fast and beautiful prints. The ability to stack them saves a lot of space while being able to reload the ink/paper in seconds. Your first print kit pays for the printer easily.
Pros: Accurate Colors, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Great Contrast, Great Overall Quality, Reliable, Sharp Tones & Colors
Excerpt: Product works as advertised. Had to play with color adjustments to get it printing correct colours as it was not well calibrated out of the box, but otherwise its working really well in the field. Wished that DNP sold ribbons separately as we have a lot of paper left on rolls.
Excerpt: After much research and comparing high end Epson to the Dye-Sub printers I purchased both the DS40 & DS80 for a studio. These have exceeded my expectations in both speed and quality of the photographs.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality
Excerpt: I bought this printer for event printing but I just got it yesterday. I have set it up and have printed a few test prints which seemed to work well. The printer is very heavy and wished I would have bought the travel case for it. Set up was easier when I watched a youtube clip.
Pros: Easy Setup, Fast Print Time, Great Overall Quality, Sharp Tones & Colors
Excerpt: I purchased this printer to use at events. I set up and take photographs and print on the spot using the DNP-DS80. This printer has proven its worth with the high quality prints it produces. Not to mention it prints 8x10s in 35 seconds.
Excerpt: Bought this one after buying two DS40's. Great colour, fast, very robust build, easy to load, all good. The new Mac driver works with OSX 10.8.5 Mountain Lion, but it is a bit finicky. But you can get it to work with Lightroom and other applications. Great product.
