Tips On Digital Camera Printers
OK, so you've taken tons of pictures, and unless you plan on looking at them forever on your PC you'll eventually will want to print them out. I know you're asking "can't I just take it to the local one hour photo store?" The answer to that question is an absolute "Yes!" But there are other options should you desire. One of those options is to get yourself a digital camera printer. And just like every other product that I cover on this web-site, you are bound to have a multitude of choices at your local electronics store. Some of the more common brands include HP, Cannon, and Epson. I also personally believe that they are some of the better printers as well.
You need to know that digital camera printers come in three types; 4-color printers, 6-color printers, and 8-color printers. As you may have guessed already the high the number of colors, the higher quality your prints will turn out! Not surprisingly, the higher the number the higher the price usually goes. The next thing you need to understand is the method by that digital camera printer uses to create the photos. Right now on the market there are two methods, ink-jet, and thermal. Ink-jet is used for a variety of purposes in general printing.
So if you're a novice photographer then this is probably the way to go. However, if you want something that is more professional then thermal is the choice. The largest difference between the two options is that thermal adds waterproof coat to the image which ensures that the photos will not fade for a very long time. The final think that you need to know about digital camera printers is the quality of paper that you will be using. This is where I say that even for a novice photographer, you really need to invest in some good quality paper. Get some think glossy paper that you can use. You can buy this at just about any office store like an Office Depot or Staples. Finally printers in general can be sometimes tough to work with. I invite you to play around with your digital camera printer to educate yourself as to how the thing works. Breakdowns are common I'm afraid, so make sure that you get your printer from a reputable store and even think about getting yourself an extended warranty if the printer doesn't already have a good standard warranty.
