Please help me understand the differences between an Oce Lightjet and an Epson printer. How do they compare in terms of: I am asking because a photographer friend tells me that the Oce Lightjet creates “true photographic prints” which are superior to the Epson I’m having a hard time finding much online about the Oce Lightjet printers.

A rather limited range of inks According to the Oce site – the machines print out at 6 – 42 picoliters droplet size. Pretty large compared to the Epson R’s 1. And the inks look like commercial offerings offered in large bags drums. Check 3rd-party media suppliers Moab, Hahnemuhle etc. I’m sure you’ll find far more ones with ICC profiles for the than for the Lightjet.

Don’t confuse the printers that Oce currently offers with the LightJet line of printers. Oce printers are inkjets that undergo a UV treatment after printing that allows printing on pretty much anything that will fit in the printer plastic signage, doors, etc.

Lightjet printers are chromogenic printers that use a laser to create an image on photo-sensitive paper – which are then developed using traditional developer chemistry – within the confines of the printer loading rolls of liightjet must be done in complete darkness. They are continuous tone printers no dots and provide exceptional image quality. Oce no longer sales this printers but info still lingers on their website – but used machines are available – and former employees of Cymbolic Sciences did start up a company to support the LightJet printers.

Check out this link for more information: Fuji Frontier Printers also use this type of printing process but on a smaller scale – and can be found at many high volume print shops. A popular paper used for printing includes Fuji Chrystal Archive – which I noticed was lighrjet paper of choice for Christmas cards I received this year.

The others did not. It is a “true” photographic process in that the light-sensitive material is activated by lighhjet laser not my old omega enlarger. Ink is Not applied to the surface. Lightjrt has an Oce flatbed too.

The big drum system cost more than a million new. For clarity it blows Every inkjet i’ve ever seen even yours out of the water. It is Not for advertising, it’s for fine art. Expensive material; we’ve been hanging “RL” So do all our other installations For the big details, like your specialty, I might prefer the droplets on canvas or watercolor paper, but for walk-into-it scenes, I don’t think the uber-realism of our prints can be surpassed.

The ultimate way to decide between the Oce and the Epson prints has to come down to which one you prefer. However the prints made with the Oce Lightjet and the Epson have important qualities that can be measured. Which has the wides possible range of colors Color Gamut? Which has the deepest black tone D-Max?

Which shows the finest detail? Which lasts the longest before showing signs of sides of fading?

Longevity Which has the greatest choice of media to print on? To fairly compare both printers I think you must consider both the the technical specifications as well as your or your clients personal preference. By now I don’t see any serious quality differences between contone on Crystal Archive paper and inkjet on a variety of media, it’s all personal preference territory for me Galen Rowell’s prints are done on the lightjet.

Several artists work on inkjets. Either way you’ll get long-lasting, beautiful prints that you should be very happy with. Probably Epson but depends on paper, this is very close, Lightjet would beat matte prints on the Epson. But there are prejudices here, many photographers feel only the light process is valid for printing their images. In a way I can understand this if you are shooting film, but if you are already using pixels there is no “purity” to worry about.

One big plus on the Lightjet is the cost of printing is much less than inkjet printing, though you are working off the initial cost. Also you will generally find shops that use Lightjets generally have highly trained personnel, which is a big plus. Basically a Oce is a photographic laser imaging process Lightjet commercial category printer around K and the Epson is a high tollerance inkjet is around 10K. Both have potential to produce amazing images but the cost difference sets them far apart.

I think the Oce can hit dpi for very large output and the Epson is 6 picolitre so both have amazing capacity to deliver cutting edge fine resolution but are very different devices. The Oce and the Epson provide amazing prints both. In the end its up to the photographer to judge the final results. Oce is made by Canon Inc. Is it enough of a refresh to keep up with the times? The Nikon Z6 may not offer the incredible resolution of its sibling, the Z7, but its 24MP resolution is more than enough for most people, and the money saved can buy a lot of glass.

Wacom’s latest pro tablet can help take your editing workflow — and most importantly, the final image results — to the next level. Many cameras today include built-in image stabilization systems, but when it comes to video that’s still no substitute for a proper camera stabilization rig.


The SiOnyx Aurora is a compact camera designed to shoot stills and video in color under low light conditions, so we put it to the test under the northern lights and against a Nikon D5.

It may not be a replacement for a DSLR, but it can complement one well for some uses.
