Photo Printers
The Power to Print Your Photos

Photo Printers come in many types and sizes, and target different printing needs. There are printers that can print photos but still offers general document printing and even scanning, copying, and faxing due to the presence of all-in-one printers. However, these days, as more and more people get themselves a digital camera, the idea of printing your own pictures instantly has become quite tempting, and that’s what some photo printers, especially the portable ones, offer.

So if you want the power to be printing your own digital shots without having to go to a lab, get yourself a photo printer you can use at home.

You can choose from a photo printer that can also print documents so you get two benefits from one package, or you can choose to invest in a trusty portable photo printer that you can even bring around.

Photo Printers: The Winners

The best photo printers available in the market are:

  • Canon Pixma Wins Best in Technology
  • Epson PictureMate Wins Best in Portability
  • HP Photosmart Wins Best in Professional Photo Printing

1. Canon Pixma Wins Best in Technology

The award for the best technology when it comes to photo printers goes straight to Canon for its line of Pixma printers. The Canon Pixma line became rather popular when it was first released, mainly due to the advanced print technology it employs. First, it uses the ChromaLife 100+ ink system with up to 6 color inks in individual ink tanks. This can achieve a maximum print resolution of 9600x2400 dpi. To make this possible and to capture the finest details of your photos, Canon Pixma printers use the FINE patented print head technology which uses 1-picoliter ink droplets to create your photos. This advanced printing technology makes for meticulous and precise printing.

One of the best Canon Pixma printers is the MP980, which offers the complete Pixma package for home or office use: excellent photo printing technology, high-res scanning, camera and memory card connectivity, and an LCD display to review your photos in. With the MP980, you can conveniently print photos that will last a good long time.

2. Epson PictureMate Wins Best in Portability

Sporting fun and inviting looks, Epson’s PictureMate printers offer solid high-class printing despite their compact sizes. These printers are equipped with camera and camera phone connectors so you can conveniently print photos wherever and whenever. Most models come with a built-in LCD for easy navigation, and various print settings such as enlargements, black and white, and sepia.

One of the best in the series is the Epson PictureMate 500, which comes with a convenient handle so you can easily carry the printer around. It can print 10x15 cm borderless prints that will look every bit like lab-quality output. When used with the right Epson photo papers, you will end up with vibrant photos that will last a lifetime.

3. HP Photosmart Wins Best in Professional Photo Printing

There is another type of photo printing that needs to be met: professional photo printing. Photo printing for graphic artists and designers are definitely more meticulous than home or basic office photo printing. These customers have higher standards and can be scrupulous when it comes to print quality. They also require larger print sizes.

To meet these needs, HP came out with several professional-grade photo printers under its famous Photosmart series. These large-format professional printers can achieve borderless photo printing of up to 13x19 inches in size. Printing is achieved at maximum resolution of 1200x1200 dpi for black printing and 4800x1200 dpi for optimized color printing. Most of the printers are also networkable via Ethernet and some models also offer wireless connectivity as well as USB interfaces.

Such is the HP Photosmart 8750, which is equipped with 9 different HP Vivera inks to meet the very thorough standards of fine art and serious photographers when it comes to color capture. And to help you showcase your achievements, the photos printed by the Photosmart 8750 can last up to 100 years under glass and 200 years in an album.

Photo Printers: Why Connectivity Matters

In buying a photo printer, don’t forget to consider connectivity features. Since you will be printing photos which can be taken from digital cameras or camera phones and saved on memory cards or USB drives, you need a photo printer that supports all these sources so you get convenient photo printing that does not even require a PC. Connectivity features will help you make the most out of your photo printers.
