photo friendly printers


11 Feb 2007 9:14PM
This afternoon I witnessed a Canon photo friendly printer in action. The experience got me thinking.

Can you recommend a great printer or at least a reliable source?


Thanks in advance

by a dye sub printer more expensive to run but much better picture quality

Paul .. I wouldnt agree that the picture quality is necessarily better .. however the prints are tougher. A properly set up Inkjet can produce formidable prints too.

a good pigment based epson for example does take some beating but a degree of skill is needed to set up and get the best out of the paper and ink combination, for a plug and go approach where a lot of people only want a fixed size 6x4 inchs then a dyesub does the job.
for continous tone unless you go for a print from a lab then the dye sub is good enough for 99% of the people

I use an Epson Stylus Photo R2400. This uses eight inks which are called by Epson Ultra chrome...! Not sure what that means but the print quality up to A3+ is fantastic.It has user friendly pre-sets and good advanced settings with fine tuning for monochrome. it also has a roll feed facility if you are into mass printing.
