You have to provide a price range to say more. The Epson R2400 is highly praised by photographers these days, uses separate cartridges (about $13 apiece), uses pigment based inks that have a long life, and has a lot of support from third party vendors. However, it costs about $800 which is probably more than you want to pay. Epson does have several lower priced printers.
I need a photo printer for my home. I want something very good, but I am not a professional photographer. Need to be able to develop good pictures that will survive the next 30 years. It is very important that the cost per picture is not excessive and that the cartriges for each color are seperate. I am completely at a loss what to buy. I would greatly appreciate some advice. Thanks!
