I'm looking for a photo printer whether a PC one that uses ink jet
technology that will allow bigger than the 6x4 prints or a stand alone unit
that is specific for Digital cameras which use Dye sublimation technology
and only allow 6x4 max prints.

I've been looking at the Sony DPP-EX50 for no specific reason other than it
looks good uses Dye sub technology and has a image display panel.

I do not want to spend the earth on the unit and was thinking of a max of
£200... less if poss.

I currently own a Canon 300D and A60 so I don't know if photo printers are
capable of showing up the differences between the two, more so if I went
further up the ladder.

Seems from a Article posted in the Printer news group that Dye Sub Prints only
have a 7 year life span, when I got my Panasonic I was under the impression
they last longer the Ink Jet Prints

And inkjet pictures last longer than 7 years no way. Besides dye sub is the
way to go I have read they can last 100-200 years.

Where be that link? From what I gather Dye sub is a superior way of printing
as it does not use miniscule dots to make up an image instead uses some
other technology which prints out individual colours in one stroke... guess
I need to read up on the technology a bit more eh?
