The new breed of 4x6-inch printers cut the computer umbilical cord, but are they worth it?
It's surprising how many pros and advanced photographers make their own prints and enlargements on inkjet printers. And why not? The image quality, print durability, and performance of these units have gone way up, while the prices keep falling. So why would anyone spend $150-$300 on a printer that can pop out only 4x6 snapshots instead of a desktop printer that prints documents, charts, and even 8x44-inch photo-quality enlargements?
