7 Best Photo Printers For Those Amazing Moments

Posted: 20 Jan 2017 10:34 AM PST


When hunting for a printer, a lot of factors need to be kept in mind. The first and most important thing is the cost per sheet, or in simple words, how economical the printer is.

There are some printers which cost a lot and the ink runs out very fast leading to multiple refills in a short span of time. Printer refills and cartridges can burn a hole in your pocket in the long run. This list is for the 7 Best Photo Printers that can churn out quality prints each time you use them. There is one option in every budget and it is up to you to decide which one to get.

HP Envy 5540 Photo Printer

There are only a handful of reliable brands when it comes to printers and HP is one of them. I have an inkjet printer from HP that is still going strong even after 8 years of usage. The HP Envy 5540 Photo Printer is the perfect option for those looking for a budget photo printer. Coming at just around $70, this one can print, scan, copy and even print wirelessly. The printer supports a wide array of photo sizes and can print from end to end for a borderless photo. This is by far one of the 7 Best Photo Printers for those under a budget.

Canon Selphy CP1200 Photo Printer

The Canon Selphy CP1200 is another great option for people looking to get a photo printer under $100. This one also has wireless printing capabilities, but there is no facility to scan. It is compact and can print card size, postcard, L size and square label photos. The CP1200 can either connect to your wireless network through the dedicated Wi-Fi button or print pictures through your iPod, iPad or iPhone.

Canon PIXMA iP2702 Photo Printer

You might notice that this list is dominated by Canon and Epson. It is simply because they are the best when it comes to quality printing. The PIXMA iP2702 can print pictures at a resolution of 4800×1200 pixels resulting in mesmerizing photos. It comes with specially created ink which is also very easy to use and replace. This one from Canon can print a 4"x6" borderless photo in about 55 seconds which is amazing considering the resolution. If you want some amazing photos, then the Canon PIXMA iP2702 is one of the 7 Best Photo Printers that you should definitely get.

Epson Expression Photo XP-960 Photo Printer

The Epson Expression Photo XP-960 is slightly up the ladder in terms of pricing and performance. It comes for a little under $200, but it has all the features that you can possibly ask for. If you thought printing a 4"x6" photo in 55 seconds was amazing, then get ready to be blown away. The Photo XP-960 can print the same size photo in a mind-blowing time of just 11 seconds.  It also supports wireless printing from iPhone, iPad and even Android devices.

Epson Stylus Photo R280 Photo Printer

Things are heating up as we near the end of the list. Epson Stylus Photo R280 can print photos at a resolution of 5760×1440 dpi. The photos are also scratch, smudge, fade, and water resistant for some everlasting memories. Just like the XP-960, the Photo R280 can also print borderless 4"x6" photos in just 11 seconds. It can also print text documents at 38 pages per minute. Epson is proud of the fact that their photos can last for up to 200 years in albums. It is a bold claim and that is why it is on the list of the 7 Best Photo Printers.

Epson Stylus Photo 1500W Photo Printer

This is the last Epson printer on this list and is something that semi-professional and professional photographers use for some vivid photos. You shouldn't get it for printing documents but for the photos. It prints photos at a resolution of 5760×1440 dpi and it takes quite a bit of time. But the end result will surely impress you. The Photo 1500W can print the standard 4"x6" photos as well as larger photos of A3+ sizes as well. If you're serious about the quality of your photos, don't think twice about getting this one. It is no surprise that the Epson Stylus Photo 1500W is featured in the list of the 7 Best Photo Printers.

Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Photo Printer

The last one on the list performs like a beast. It has a slightly lower maximum resolution compared to the two other Epson printer above this one. But there are professional features like an ambient light correction to match specified lighting conditions, 2-way paper feeding and auto photo fix. The PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II can print photos at a resolution of 4800×1200 dpi. An 11"x14" photo can be printed in about 1 minute and 23 seconds which is just great. This photo printer is the costliest on the list of the 7 Best Photo Printers at about $500, but it does its job perfectly.

Physics is fun… to some people. Learning about physics in high school or university isn’t always the most interesting thing in the world, at least to most people. It doesn’t just sound boring to those who have no clue about Physics. It can be quite dull to those in class as well. However, everything complicated becomes simple and cool through the right kind of visualization. So through these 27 jaw dropping gifs that display something that sounds complicated from the world of physics, we hope to make you appreciate the laws and theories behind what makes everything on this planet function.

This is an example of the Magnus effect, in which a spinning ball curves away from its flight path.

Turns out burning candles can create vacuums: The higher air pressure outside the glass pushes the water inside and up.

The Levitron toy helps display something known as spin-stabilized magnetic levitation, where the pull of gravity is equal to the magnetic repulsion.

Simply put, this is an awesome explanation of how a Laser works.

Turbine convection, with the rising heat helping the spin motion, sorta lika a fan.

Baseball can teach you about physics too. For example, the trajectory and behavior of an object in motion.

Fans of Queen can be seen moving when they hear the music, hence a demonstration of the speed of sound.

A self balancing stick.
