Hi,

 

looking to buy a good photo printer as a lot of the shops nearby print shit prints.

 

It's only for family use. Been looking at Epson Stylus Photo R3000. Anybody used it? Experience with it?

 

Do anyone have any other suggestions for a good printer. Price range up to $500,00.

 

Thanks

Thanks Eric,

 

I've read that Canon's printers have a built beef up of colors so it's a more saturated look. So the printed image won't be 100% identical to the original photo from Photoshop. Do you know anything about this?

I've have no complaints with this printer, can't say the same about the Epsons I've had. As for color not matching, just profile the printer and your monitor
