    Hi, I'm after a good quality printer to print hundred(s) of pictures. I own a digital camera and XD memory card, so I would like the printer to be able to handle this. I was hoping somebody could recommend a printer, and whether certain printers / cartridges can print MANY good quality pictures (?).
    Thank you..

    If you have 100's i'd save some money and use an online printer like photobox or ophoto. It will cost you a good bit more in ink and paper then it would to simply have someone like jessops do 50 for £5 or then it will to do it at home

    But if you want to go down that the route the epson RX300 is a good priced quailty printer

    Thanks,
    I couldnt find the epson RX300, but I did see a few R300 's.
    Also, sorry to be ignorant, but what do you mean by online printers like photobox and ophoto ?
    Thanks

    Online printer where you upload your photos and and order them to be printted. www.photobox.co.uk you should get ten free prints and 50mb of free space to have an online album to share when you reg

    i got a r300 for my birthday in april.

    It prints really well, even though i havent yet managed to configure my screen with it yet.

    Though after only about twenty prints at high res. and about A4 size, it seems my black may be running out. not sure if this is about right for printer inks or not.

    But quality wise it is excellent.

    I think that just echo's what Seany already stated. For hundreds of photo's you are much better of using an online print service. It is just false economy to think that you can do it cheaper yourself, especially when you start taking time into account as well.

    I think a good quality home photoprinter perfectly compliments the online services. Online services I tend to use for bulk printing and my wife puts them in an album...Individual copies can then easily be made from the computer for friends and family.
