Thanks all for your feedback
From several online reviews I read, it seems Epson photo printers are very good but expensive to use (the ink is).
The best photo printer seems to be the new Canon S900/9000 Photo which is cheap to use with 6 individual ink tanks.
The printer is very expensive though!
There is a long review about it at http://www.steves-digicams.com/2002_...non_s9000.html
I have an "old" Olympus Camedia C920 Zoom (1.3 megapixel) and a Canon PowerShot Pro 90 (2.6 megapixels) that has a 10x optical zoom great for taking pictures of birds.
