The Societies have confirmed they will be hosting a free prize draw to win a Fujifilm Frontier-S DX100 printer and a copy of CARBON software worth £3,000.

Fujifilm is leading the way in drylab technology as proved by the success of the newly launched Frontier-S DX100. With print sizes from 5×3.5 to 8×39 and paper finishes in gloss, lustre, satin and fine art matte the Frontier-S DX100 boasts a huge range of print options. The VIVIDIA 6-ink system and superior image processing software means that you can be assured of quality prints every time. And at 360 6×4 prints an hour it’s speedy as well.

To compliment the diversity of print options the Frontier-S DX100 comes bundled with the Shiraz CARBON ‘One click printing solution’, a modern and innovative RIP application that Fujifilm have tailored to suit the studio, commercial or event photography market.

Last year’s winner Kels Noades says, ”I have two studios – one in Surrey and a new launch based in Hampshire – so I needed a portable printing solution and was looking at the DX100 after it was recommended by other photographers. As well as my baby and family portraits, I’m often asked to photograph celebrity golf days and school events, such as proms. I’m looking forward to using this printer for ‘reveal walls’ and to use it to offer a higher quality print at my events.”
