    HP Photosmart 8050 review

    8  

    Way back in the 1980s, when HP introduced its first DeskJet colourthermal inkjet printer, it came up with the idea of building the printheads into the cartridges and has stuck with the format almost exclusively ever since.

    Canon PIXMA iP6220D review

    Unlike all Canon's previous models, this printer takes an 'HP' approach to print cartridges, using two tri-colour carts to make up its six-ink range, each cartridge having its own built-in print head.

    Canon Selphy CP720 review

    Compared with the Canon PIXMA mini 260, which is also a portable postcard printer, the CP720 is half the size and less than half the weight. However, once you add the paper tray the CP720's footprint is actually larger that the mini 260's

    Built around HP's acclaimed 56, 57 and 58 cartridges, the Photosmart 7450 gives you the choice of four-ink or six-ink printing, by swapping the No 56 mono cartridge for a No 58 photo cartridge

    Epson Stylus Photo R200 review

    The quality of budget digital cameras has advanced massively over the last couple of years and, if you're after a printer that can provide equally high quality in photo output, with a similarly budget-conscious price tag, the R200 is for you...

    We all know about photo inkjet printers, right? You need at least six different colours of ink to get a wide enough colour space for accurate photo reproduction. With only four inks, we almost didn't bother getting the new PIXMA mini 260 in for review

    Apple Mac Mini 1.42 GHz review

    As a home computer for the keen digital photographer, the Mac Mini ishard to fault, and it certainly falls into the 'accessory' category at this price (less than a top-flight compact camera)

    Those lovely people at Hewlett-Packard really do make a big effort when it comes to writing driver software that works really smoothly with a Mac. Take the package that comes with the company's new budget-priced all-in-one device

    HP Business Inkjet 1200d review

    Although the ubiquitous photo inkjet printer is all the rage at the moment, there's still a place in many offices for colour inkjet printers such as HP's Business Inkjet 1200d

    The Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL knocks out beautiful colour images that are virtually indistinguishable from inkjet photos printed on matte papers - we never thought we'd saw the day...

    One step up from HP's entry-level printer is the HP Photosmart 375. Theink technology is identical to that used on its cheaper sibling but youdo get some useful features for your extra £50.

    When you look at the quality of prints coming out from what is athree-ink printer without a black cartridge, the 325's results areastounding. It offers great colour and good sharpness

    You want to be able to print colour photos so you buy an inkjet printer, but you soon realise that it's not very economical forprinting text only documents. So, you think about buying a laser printer as well, because there are quite a few cheap ones

    HiTi 730PS review

    Okay... strictly speaking it's not a mini photo printer - it's more of a midi photo printer. Even so, the HiTi 730PS can print direct from digital camera memory cards and it does includea colour LCD screen for selecting images from.

    Take the printer mechanism of the Epson Stylus Photo R200 and bolt on an LCD panel and a mini colour monitor. Stir in a selection of memory card slots and the result is the Epson Stylus Photo R320

    As Canon printers go, this is the undisputed king of the A4 jungle. There are eight inks to provide a wide colour gamut: Canon's ChromaPLUS system introduces two extra colours to the regular five-colour set-upwith vivid green and red cartridges

    There's almost everything on this stylish printer except the proverbial kitchen sink, including dual paper trays, integral duplexing unit and a CD printing tray. As an all-round office/photo printer it's hard to beat

    Unlike the rest of the Pixma range, the entry-level iP2000 doesn't employ Canon's excellent separate colour inks. That's a shame, as there are fewer colours for photo printing and the running costs are likely to be higher

    Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock review

    We reckon Kodak's got things just about right with the EasyShare Printer Dock. Strictly speaking, this is a printer dock for use with a Kodak EasyShare digital camera, but it can be used with a Mac or a PictBridge compatible camera too.

    The big question for Epson watchers is, who exactly is this printeraimed at? The word from Epson HQ is that it's a replacement for the1280/1290 series. The slightly more upmarket 2100/2200 range willcontinue for now

    When you consider that a paltry three megapixels is all you need forfull A4 printing, you have to wonder why six and even eight-megapixel cameras are so popular.

    At first glance the HP Photosmart C4180 is compact for an MFD, but once you make allowances for the hefty power brick and the paper tray that extends a fair way out of the front, it's actually not that small, although it will fit neatly on a shelf.
