Hump Day Hardware: Photo Printers

May 13, 2009

Last week I discussed desktop inkjet printers. Today I’m going to focus on a specific subset of inkjet printers designed for printing snapshots.

Canon released a new model a couple of months ago that gives you good pictures and a very small form factor. The Canon Selphy CP780 (shown at right) would make a perfect companion to take on trips if you need to print photos on the go.

The Epson PictureMate Dash PM260 costs a bit more, but is also a very popular solution in a compact package. If you also have the need to print on CDs or DVDs, check out the Epson PictureMate Zoom PM290. It has an even higher cost, but the ability to print on discs could be worth the extra dollars.

For those who want the best looking screen to preview the photos before printing, check out the HP A826 Photo Printer (shown at left). The 7″ touch screen gives you a great view of your images along with controls to easily select and correct the photos before printing.

Any of these four printers will give you good looking pictures. It just depends what other features you desire in a printer that will determine the best choice for you.
