Simply photocopy, decent photo, wireless printer up to £130ish

Hiya folks,

As per the title, I'm looking for a wireless printer that has a very basic photocopy mode so dad can use it for his lawn bowls league sheets etc.

And by basic, I really do mean open the lid, put the original on the glass, close the lid, hit how many copies and then press a button to copy.

Photo-wise, as good as can be had for the moment, preferably with the ability to print from the SD/camera direct if possible. Is not strictly necessary as mum can use the laptop to a degree, but a reasonable picture quality would be nice.

Many thanks for any linkies, oh, one last requirement, needs to be one that Comet stock (need to use my Edge store card to buy it).

cheers :)
