I use the 2000P for making digital negatives for carbon but have no
experience with the Epson 1280. I am told that Keith Schreiber uses
the 1280 and make pyro-colored negatives that block a lot of UV light
and work as spectral negatives for UV processes. I have no idea what
settings he uses in Photoshop to set the color.
