    Lexmark P6350 review

    Canon, Epson and HP aren't the only players around in the photo printing market. The Lexmark P6350 all-in-one meets them head-on with a very similar set of features.

    How many times have you complained that what you see on your Mac's monitor isn't what comes out on your printer, in terms of colour? That's all of us. Now that digital photography is such a popular hobby

    The pleasantly curvaceous shape of the Canon i9950 makes it look quitesmall for an A3 printer, if that's possible for a machine that outputs13x19-inch photos. It's Canon's top of the range inkjet printer anduses the same...

    A3 printers are designed for comparatively low throughput and domesticor small office environments. Put them in a busy studio and you'llspend half your time swapping ink tanks.

    The i6500's designed as a super-fast do-it-all A3 printer for bothphotographic and office use. It uses four separate inks rather than the six, seven, eight or nine inks of dedicated photo printers, but thequality difference is less than you might think

    Yep, the Photosmart 8750 is a pricey beggar. But then again, the photosit produces can be huge - up to 13x19 inches. This lets you to make themost of the latest digital cameras, with 8MP pictures that could doubleas wall hangings

    The 1290s is a bit of an old campaigner now, and that's reflected inits price, making it an attractive option if you're strapped for cash.The combined five-colour ink tank (the black's in a separate cartridge)is a bit of an anachronism in this day and age

    Okay, in your own time and when you're ready! No rush... Some three and a half minutes later, the HP Scanjet wheezes its way to the end of our test scan like a fell walker who's just smoked 40 Capstan Full-Strength before tackling Mount Everest.

    Epson Perfection 4180 Photo review

    8  

    For an extra £120 on the price of an Epson 2480 scanner, you can get a far better-built model for your cash. The Epson Perfection 4180 is a chunkier scanner than the 2480, and has a larger-format film adapter as standard.

    There's a lot of scanner in this small and unassuming grey box from Epson. For starters, you get a competent scanner with 2,400 x 4,800dpi resolution and a film adapter for scanning slides and negatives.

    Unlike the other scanners on test here, Canon's budget-priced LIDE series uses LEDs to provide illumination for a contact image sensor (CIS) mechanism, rather than conventional CCDs. LEDs uses much less power that conventional CCDs...

    The CanoScan 8400F is the flagship of Canon's consumer flatbed scanning fleet - a rather imposing, bulbous-looking device that offers 3,200x6,400dpi of superb optical resolution. The scan area is a full A4 glass platen...

    Despite the fact that this mid-range scanner has been out for some time, the 3200F really is something of a speed demon. It can preview a full page of A4 colour in under four seconds, and will scan a full 300dpi A4 colour document in 13s.

    These days, office workers don't seem to want to buy separate scanners, printers or photocopiers. All-in-ones are now all the rage, because buying three peripherals in one can save a small fortune and free up workspace for other things.

    The PhotoSmart 8450 has recently been reduced considerably in price, which makes its unusual approach all the more interesting. First, you get memory card slots for all current card formats. Second you get not two but three three-colour ink tanks.

    The R200 uses newer, longer-lasting Epson inks and, unusually for a printer in this price bracket, you can replace the six ink colours individually. Resolution is quoted as up to 5760dpi 'optimised' on the appropriate media

    The Pixma iP1500 isn't specifically a photo printer, but Canon says it's fine for this as well as everyday jobs like printing letters and documents. It has a resolution of 4800 x 1200dpi and a Canon FINE head, which delivers 2-picolitre drops
