Hi, any recommendations on the best printers for printing photo's? A4 size is good but if it can print A3 size then that would be great but not important. I don't want something where the ink does not last long and costs a fortune. I don't intend on using the printer regularly but maybe a couple of times every few months. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.

even the budget ones now print great pictures at A4 so really it's more to do with what features you want like Wi-Fi or scanner built in and cost of ink.
Epson's are normally the ones where you can pick up cheap ink which print quite well (not as well as genuine ones though)

canon

To be honest I'm not too fussed about extra features. I have a mono laser printer to use for printing my documents so just really want one for printing photos. A scanner might be useful for scanning old photos but not a necessity. I have searched on google for best the best photo printers but they all have different opinions and there is not a specific one which is recommended on any site and i am usually sceptical when it comes to top ten lists. Price is not a big factor though I would like to pay under £100 or a little over.

Thanks for the Epson tip will look at a few of those.

My advice don't buy one especially with the amount of printouts you say you will do there terrible at maintaining blocked nozzles lines in the ink after it's been standing a while.

I've had many different ink jets and find them to be money sinks just use asda or online services to print colour photos and buy a laser printer for documents. This is just my experience.

Quality= Epson P50 5 cartridges for best quality
Price= HP with instant ink, upto 50 full colour borderless prints for £1.99 per month.
(my P50 is for sale £100 inc postage only one set of inks through it)

just installed Canon PIXMA MG7150 i find the canon printers dont need flushing if you dont use them for a few weeks this printer takes 6 carts and i can get four sets (24 carts in total ) for £30
but if you doing such a little ammount of printing not worth buying a printer imo

These days it's more about how cheap the ink cartriges are - most printers do a 'Jessops' quality photo print, make sure you have good
photo quality paper though.

I confirm Canon have been the best for me.
Epsons waste ink deliberately by doing needless cleaning cycles every 4 prints or so.
They also refuse to print if the chip reports it is empty. (Though the cartridges are cheap to buy)
I also find epsons do clog up frequently even with the repetitive cleaning cycles.
Ive been through 3 epsons and i used to swear by them (a Stylus colour 400, a stylus C62 then a Stylus R300)
Bought my 1st canon years ago (Pixma ip6700D) when the R300 broke and what a difference.
It rarely clogs and rarely does a cleaning cycle. Im now on my 2nd Canon MG6450
The carts are cheap and the print quality is good (around £11 for 4x sets on eBay)

I wont ever go back to epson now.
