First LED prints from new X20

Recommended Posts

The first prints arrived back from the lab yesterday and I was happy that they were as expected. The largest being a 12" x 8" B&W showing the more than adequate qualities of the 28-112 mm lens. Taken at ISO 100 in RAW and with the lens wide open. I had several tiny macro's printed on a gang sheet as well. A shot of a local bridge structure to see how the lens DOF and sharpness performed at near and far distances.Paul Broome Photography on Facebook

LED is an alternative to laser printing in the desktop printer market (Brother and OKI printers use LED) but I have never heard of that technology being used for photo reproduction. LEDs are used to do the fusing of the toner rather than the traditional laser. The advantages are cost and lower peak power consumption.

If my Brother LED printer is anything to go by I wouldn't be holding my breath to see the results. It's fine for colour business documents but a long way from photo quality.

I'd be very keen to hear more about this particularly if its the same basic technology taken to a new level.

I am not aware of the techinical properties associated with what my lab have termed LED for many years. However the process is outlined here:

You are not misinterpreting "Design Led, Technology Driven, People Powered" by any chance?

They look like a really switched on Photo Lab and it looks like they have an Australian branch as well so I will make some inquires. Thanks for the lead.
