Photoprinters for users

      Usual ink-jet printers, probably will somewhen print photos better than now, but while there is a visible difference in quality. While quality of standard ink-jet printers comes nearer to photographic, photoprinters quality often coincides with the photographic. If you wish to have the photos with usual quality, the photoprinter is necessary for you.

    Not all the photoprinters are represented as universal devices. For example, printers with ink thermo transfer (sometimes incorrectly named “sublimation”) aren’t universal because they are not able to print on a usual paper. Besides, there can be prints size restrictions , e.g. maximum 10x15 or 13x18 cm.

    And some photoprinters work too slowly to be considered as universal. Here we’ll consider the universal models only.

   The majority of photoprinters have got the price 100 to 500 dollars. As a rule, they print different types of documents more slowly, than standard ink-jet printers with the similar price, but print the photos much faster. The main difference between expensive and cheaper photoprinters is a printing speed. Among printer models  from 400 dollars you can meet also printers which work with a paper size to 33x48 cm.

    Even among universal photoprinters there are many different types of models. Many of them work with more than four colours. Generally it means addition colour as light blue and light magenta to traditional blue, yellow, magenta and black. At least in one model are added dark blue and red dyes (this colour is closer to orange).

    Complementary ink colours allows to expand the colour scale reproduced by printer, and to facilitate reproduction of hard reproducing colours, such as corporal tone or the blue sky. But complementary colours using does not guarantee better quality, and some printers provide real photo-quality without them.

    There are also the printers which have grey ink or the pigmentary black in addition to usual black dye. In both cases the purpose of additional ink application is black-and-white photos improvement. If you prefer black-and-white photos, it is necessary to have printers with such ink.

    There are also photoprinters which print directly from camera or a flash card. Most cases printers with the direct  printing option have basically the same possibilities, as the miniphotolaboratories. Many of them have small colour liquig crystal display with an appropriate menu  which help to see and modify pictures. Models without the liquig crystal display print index-list that lets to choose which pictures to print.

    If you want to print without the computer, search for the printer with flash cards, and PictBridge cameras owners should choose the compatible printers. Then it is possible to connect camera to printer without  taking out a flash card. Even if you haven’t got PictBridge in your camera now, you shouldn’t neglect this printer’s function because your next camera, likelihood, will correspond to this standard.
