    I'm shooting an event in april and my client wants the pictures printed out there.

    I know nothing about printers, I was wondering if there was a good printer for this situation. It's pretty much going to be 4x5's & 5x7's.

    Thanks for the helpz!

    no idea here... but if you're printing 4x5s and 5x7s then i'm sure you can find something cheap and good. I use a canon i9900 and love it (prints up to 13x19

    Wouldn't something like a small HP Photosmart printer work :dunno:

    The ink is rated for 200yrs now and the print speed is just a few seconds for 4x6's on the newest ones and they cost something like a 1/10th of those linked above.

    I'd say for during event printing and likely very little editing no one should be expecting spectacular prints, but it could boost larger print sales later which is always a good thing.

    probably, but it won't be ideal. And I highly doubt you'd get a quality photo in a couple seconds.
