OTOH, 20 years back I had one of epsons better efforts for a 4 color 
inkyet. I shot a couple weddings as the neighbors kids grew up and fled 
the nest. Gutenprints drivers for the epson C82 were way better than 
windows drivers, I actually sold a couple album packages, all 8.5x11 
borderless and printed on that C82. Sadly epsons have gone to the dogs, 
my last one clogged its head and refused to clean after 3 weeks, I thru 
more money at its an bought a brother color laser, and it worked very 
well until the corona wires hi voltage went away, and I could not 
convince brother that was its problem. I am a CET and someday when I 
have clear space on the bench, I'll fix it.  Its a good FAST color 
printer. Expendables are over priced though.

Or if you movie camera is one of the better Sony's using digital hi-8 
metal tape, its interface is firewire, and kino is the editor of choice. 
Why? Because the camera controls are right in the program and they just 

kdenlive in another 10 years with help from the same author has never 
grown those controls. All you need is a firewire card, and kino, and you 
can hand the customer a stack of video cd's or dvd's to put with their 
other memorabilia, and pass out to kinfolks.
