View Full Version : Photo Quality Printers

I am looking to upgrade my printer to suit digital photography. I am attracted to the Dye-sublimation type printer for permanance and quality but put off by initial cost and cost of consumables. While I can just live with the cost, I am concerned that this type of printer may be the equivalent of the Beta video recorder ie technicaly superior but a dog in the market. I am interested in feedback and recomendations on Photo printers.

The chap at the local Kodak outlet (Victoria St, Hamilton) tells me his printer is a Dye-sub type - a snip at only $200,000!! Most modern photo quality ink jets seem pretty good, but if you want good quality dye-sub prints, the Kodak man will print the files for you if you email them or take them in on disk for about $14 for an A4 page of prints (no - I don't work for Kodak, but it sounds like a good deal to me).
Regards,
Ray A.

They specialise in Digital cameras, digital photgraphy etc and they have die sub printers although I am not sure of the pricing..I don't think that it is that expensive though..
