I had raised this query before...
Could anyone suggest a good photo printer?
Costco 1 hour digital mini-lab $0.20of 4x6 and $1.99 for 8x12, cant beat that
wow....on what paper do they do that??
Costco doesn't do a great jopb at developing so I would not suggest them for that. I am not sure how good their quality is for printing from your negatives. Remember that lower cost isn't always better.
Epson photo printers are hard to beat.
Generally speaking, there is a wide selection and cost factor, so figure out what you can and can't live without, and compare prices of similar features on different models. Then shop around.
Thanks, but I do not have a film camera! Are they good with the digital prints?
Good.. I have heard good stuff about Epson as well.
Lately Canon has been promoting couple of new models. Is it a healthy competitor?
Canon and Epson are very close in quality. Both better than HP and Lexmark.
Just one more q;
can we do 'normal' printing, (i.e., on a normal 8"x11" printing paper ) with a photo printer?
Or is it strictly dedicated for flossy/matt photo paper?
Depends on what you want to do. I have read great reviews of Costco printing of digital images. Well only if you can get the color management profile for the local Costco printer from www.drycreekphoto.com . I will be testing this out myself this weekend.
I have heard great things about the Espon 2200 as well. I kind of boils down to the color management.
I'll wait for your test review!
