    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.
