I'm not a pro, but I do notice that the really exacting folk that I know use Epson. Many of them are so exacting that they won't even use off-brand inks...

I would be VERY cautious about how much stock I put in any article by a 'pro photographer' in an article in a photo magazine.

Pro photographers are working individuals. Their endorsement of a particular printer/scanner in an article in a photo magazine is roughly the same thing to a professional bodybuilder recommending a type of power supplement in a bodybuilding mag.

In other words, just another form of advertisement.

Why don't you check around your local area?

For big stuff everyone I know uses the Epson 7800

for little stuff...labs. most use fuji fontier equipment, stuff you'll never afford, but makes true continous tone photographs.

Just read this article in American Photo Magazine where a pro photog claims these are the best inkjet printers he has used: the HP Designjet 130 (large format) and HP Photosmart 8750 (13x19)

HP also has a new professional printer coming out in a few months which supports individual ink cartridges: Click

I am currently using an older HP Photosmart 7960 and love it (although it only offers 8x10) - I will be getting the new B9180 when it becomes available.

Hey there :) I'm looking to buy a printer/scanner. I'm doing as much research as I can (as I want only the best) and would love some advice/feedback/experiences/opinions.

Thanks in advance!
