Experimenting with a wide variety of monochrome laser printers documents that certain models can produce photo quality prints.

Leica R5, Leitz 100 mm lens, scanned on a Nikon LS-2000 slide scanner, printed on a QMS 2060 FX monochrome laser. Abandoned shed on a farm in the Missouri Ozark Mountains, Bald Eagle.

This print, at 13 x 19 inches, is exhibit quality if printed on a quality paper. You cannot print this quality on normal laser printers because their 1200 dpi is feigned. Those other laser printers are made just for offices and corporations, for printing correspondence, pie charts, and bar charts.

To print photographs, to bring brochures, to print reports, it takes a printer of the quality of a QMS to do a proper job.

To see what we mean by quality, take a look at this close-up view of the detail of carving on a 7th century Maya vase from the Popol Vuh Museum in Guatemala City. The detail is extraordinary and worth the download time of this large file.
