Dave, I'm thinking of getting one myself. What did you end up buying and why? How's it working out? Thanks!

I've had a P-10 for several months. The print quality is excellent. I'm always impressed with thespeed and quality and I've taken it on location to give out prints during events. I use it with my Canon 10D and Canon G5. PictBridge works good. However, there is one downside. Photos are cropped a lot! My opinion - this is a 3 x 5 printer that also prints 4 x 6. When you print a 4 x 6 image from Photoshop you get the equivelant of what you'd see if you make the picture 3 x 5.; dittofrom PictBridge. This means you have to be careful when taking group shots.I give ithigh markson quality, but feel cheated it's not a ture 4 x 6. For that reason I have not purchased a P440 or Kodak 8500 for 8 x 10. still trying to find out if the same issue exists for those printers.

I print from Camedia to get full 4x6's
Also will print borderless prints in Qimage but instead of selecting a 4x6 print you have to select a 5x7 .
