    I recently purchased a Canon A95 and would now like some info on
    printers. I currently have an HP Photosmart 7350. I think I would like
    something that was very quick and easy to print fairly high quality
    4x6's. Emphasis on quick and easy...for my wife.
    Thanks,
    Josh

  2. I recommend one of Canon's own CP printers, like the CP220 (needs to be
    plugged into 120v power), or the 330, which has a detachable, rechargable
    lithium ion battery pack and and can print anywhere. Both are Pictbridge
    compatible printers, so you can print from any Pictbridge compatible camera
    to them without a computer. You can also of course hook them up to your PC
    to print via USB. I have the CP330, which does an excellent job on credit
    card size, 4x6 size, and 4x8 (which I have never actually tried as of yet).
    It's also relatively fast and quiet (a lot quieter than my former HiTi
    PS-630, which gave up the ghost a few months ago).

    I've printed pics via pictbridge with my A70, Digital Rebel, and Sony
    TRV-460 digital8 camcorder with no problem.

  3. Ease of use - Epson R300. Takes the memory card directly, and will allow
    up to A4 printing (8 x 11-ish) as well as 6 x 4 inch. Can connect to a
    computer as well, if you wish.

    Then you add in the issue of aspect ratio - most cameras take 4:3, some
    take 3:2. None of the papers match either exactly! Standards? So many
    to choose from!

    Cheers,

    Personally, I would not trust such a set of inks.
    Having been down that route over the years, I'm of the belief that
    such really cheap inks are not formulated to a specific family of
    printers, but are simply loaded into the carts from a big vat of
    generic ink.
