    Upgraded our old oce

    Posted by Williamsob on Dec 20th 2018

    We upgraded our old blakc and white oce to this model. I'm not in love with the warm up time from a cold start but I love the quality of the prints. We are going to print our walk-through prints half size with the second roll.
