photo printers

anyone have any suggestions for a good photo printer . i went to a local staples the other day , they had 2 kodak printers . one was $109.99 the other was $169.99 . i asked the saleslady whats the difference between these two printers. she looked me right in the eye and said , " the one on the right cost $50.00 more". and walked away .... oh boy. thanks for any advice

Re: photo printers

HP 3310 All In One is what I use and it does everything I need done very well.
My son in law managed a Staples and put me onto it, according to him most of the others are overpriced junk.
I like mine.

Re: photo printers

Most printers will do a good job . I use a Epson 2400 but just as important to get the colors to be an exact match for what you see on computer screen is a good color calibration system such as Spyder 3 . Without it can be frustrating to edit a photo till it looks good only to have it print something different than what you see on your monitor .

Re: photo printers

If you plan on doing a lot of printing, Compare the price of ink for the different brands.. Over the long run you will spend a lot more on ink then the printer.

Re: photo printers

I don't even print my own pictures I just get them done by a professional lab. http://www.nationsphotolab.com/ But I get all different size done I don't want to buy a printer that will print a 20x30 print.

If your just doing small 4x8 then yes I guess you could get away with a printer. I just have a $50 Canon printer but it's just for non pictures.

I would think you are better off buying a good one from the start. Like anything else you get what you pay for!

Like Crappie said if you want your pictures looking like they are on computer screen you may have to buy an calibration system.
