I am new to photo printing and I plan to purchase a good printer for my photography needs. Some requirements I am looking for:
- can print up to 8R size photos
- Good quality prints - comparable or better than commercial prints
- can print 3R, 4R or 5R prints as well.
- Optional: can print on DVD discs as well.
Also what paper is best to use as well to have photo prints not fade off in time, any suggestions as well will be welcome.
Having provided my requirements, what specs should I be looking for in terms of a good printer. Some say I need to get at least a printer with 6 ink cartridges to have a good color balance. Need some advise, if you can advise the specific printer brand and model the better. Price - hopefully it is not more than $300. Thanks.
