Default photo printers vs. others

Are photo printers such as the Canon I850 worth the extra bucks over other recommended printers such as the Canon I550?

Hey Eddie, yes, the photo printers are much better at printing 'photos' than the typical inkjet printer, which is aimed at text and graphics. The I850 you mentioned is not a photoprinter, it has only 4 ink cartridges and excels at text . The Canon S820 is a true photo printer, it uses 6 ink cartridges and produces images as good as the latest I950, to the naked eye. The S820 can be had at Amazon.com or Buy.com for $120 w/free shipping...blessings, Johnny
