Small photo printers


Does anyone have one?

I am considering buying one but have no idea what to consider as essential and what is nice to have but probably won't use!

Hints, tips, ideas, views and recommendations welcomed.

Max I'd be willing to spend would be around 150.

Re: Small photo printers


150 is a good budget for a photo printer, do you want a mini one tho? I would go for a4 printer at the very smallest.

- my printer is a lexmark and the ink is quite expensive. Works out at about 32p per pic!

Know what you mean, but as above 32p is a bit steep.

As above Matt, the big printer I'd use if I wanted really good or larger prints, but I do a lot of small 6x4 or 7x5 and thought it would be quicker, easier and cheaper!
