I own an Epson Stylus Photo R300. I have had it for about a monthand have found it's photos to be excellent, far more superior than an HP I have had in the last 8 years.

I am considering upgrade to s Stylus 2200 for it's wide-format capabilities. It has a lower resolution. Will I see a difference in output? Also, will there be a difference in how vibrant the colors are from my dye based ink to the pigment based ink. I love this printer becuase of how vibrant the prints look. Thanks! I appreciate any advice.

R2200 is a nice printer, Canon i9900 is better.

The R2200 makes very very good prints, but a little less "pop" than the R300. Not bad just different.

The i9900 will amaze you with its speed and colors.

Look at it this way Epson Borderless 13x19- 27:05
Canon i9900 13x19 ... 2:40

The Canon can print aboutthree 13x19 in the time it takes for the R300 to print one 8x10.

The money you save on the printer/ink will allow you to buy Kodak Ultima paper that will give you picture life very similar to the Epson ink.

Now to be fair:

The Epson does allow roll paper handling which is not supported by Canon. The Epson does do better B&W pictures. The Canon is not bad butEpson does win for monochrome pictures.
