    Hello all. I need some advice on buying a photo printer.

    I need a printer that prints only 4x6 stills and has compact flash input. It must be able to be independant from a computer and must print fast with relatively good quality. I am inputing 4 megapixel images, so I will see if the printer does a crappy job.

    Anyone have any suggestions or experience with these types of printers?

    No, I don't

    Are you a school photographer?

    I take my photography seriously. And, althouugh I love my Oly C-3040, taking my images through Photoshop and then printing to my trusty Epson 6 color SP 780 has kept me very happy for the last two years. If you are using Mac, I would shop Epson first though.

    What about the Sony personal dye-sub printer?

    Sony photo printer

    Seems like the quality and the life of the print would both be better than an inkjet, but I'm asking because I don't really know. I'd like to buy a photo printer, too, and I wasn't impressed with the HP prints. Has anyone used the Sony?
