Fine Art Photo or Glicee Products at FESPA DIGITAL 2014 EXPO in Munich, Germany

Ten years ago Photokina had a dozen brands of printers exhibited (in addition to cameras and lots of scanners). Now 90% of the printer brands no longer have a booth at Photokina: they exhibit in Europe only at FESPA Digital (or Sign Istanbul).

A decade ago Drupa and other printer expos had lots of products for fine art photography and giclee workflow: Heidelberg even offered medium format digital camera backs! How times have changed.

At ISA 2014 in Orlando, you could find plenty of after-market inks for giclee and fine art printers, plus you could inspect all the latest Canon and Epson printers. HP exhibited primarily latex rather than their entire series of nice Z-series Designjet printers.

So at FESPA Digital 2014 in Munich, we had curiousity to see what products were on exhibit, appropriate for giclee and fine art photography digitization, printing and finishing.

We saw between four and five booths of media for giclee and fine art photography. But didn't had the chance to see whatever remains of "Ilford." Sadly that company fell faster and further than Kodak. Of the original brands of the era of Leica and Hasselblad, only Fujifilm was able to evolve into the world of digital imaging (but not in cameras, only in wide-format printers and inks).

Four of us from FLAAR Reports assisted at FESPA (and at least two of us will be at Photokina). Since this is a "Photokina year" we will probably skip PhotoEast in New York.
