Sup, some time ago, i posted a question about digital cameras. I finally purchased a Canon Powershot G3 (4mp). I currently have a lexmark z52 wich is 2400x1200 resolution. It does print VERY well. However, i was thinking about getting another. I was also considering getting an "all in one" printer. (fax, scan & print) But i want great print for photos. Wich is priority. I also considered a lemark p707. Anyone have any tips or input? thanks

I have a Canon i550 and the prints are great. The fact that each color tank can be replaced when it's low is a big help also. Printed many pics before I had to replace just the yellow tank. Software is pretty good.

I have an older Epson Stylus Photo 1200 (I think the current incarnation is the 1280). It'll print really large stuff; however, most of my pic printing is about 8x10 or smaller. It does great work and I presume the 1280 would be even better. If you don't want the ability to print up past "B" size paper (11x17), then a smaller printer should do ya fine. (Remember, you may want to print some 11x17 targets some day.[:)]) (Actually, the 12xx series will do "Super B" and roll-feed paper also.) If you really get into it, paper will become an interest. I highly recommend Red River Paper [url]www.redriverpaper.com[/url]. Click on "Ink Jet Papers" when you get to their homepage and you're good to go. Some of the best printer prices I've ran into are at Multiwave [url]www.mwave.com[/url]. Kevin

The local radio show gurus claim Canons are the best right now. Canon i950, I believe is what they are touting. Here's a review, priced in the low $200 range. [url]http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,916063,00.asp[/url]

I have a canon Powershot G2..and i use it for 90% of the time to print out pictures(travel alot to europe)..And one of the best photo printers at that time and that i own is the canon S9000 not the 900 the 9000.It comes with really cool programs,and photoshop to put text on your pics and touch them up. trust me if u already spent alot on your camera such as your 4mp,You should spent a quite abit on your printer.You wont regret it

Not to be a wise guy or anything, but I thought this post judging by the title, was going to be some sort of joke. The reason is because the "G3" is also the main-battle rifle for Germany, before the 556-guns.
