I have an epson 2200, gretag i1 and imageprint. I just bought my wife a HiTouch 640PS dye sub and a canon A80 digital camera. I took a test photo, set my white and black points in photoshop and printed on Prem. Luster paper using imageprint. Then I walked over to the HiTouch, stuck the compact flash card into it and pushed print. (My wife, who is lost when it comes to computers, was able to take a picture and print it out without reading any instructions or with any help!)

The HiTouch wins. Better blacks. Better finish. I might be able to get comparable blacks if I laminate my 2200 prints, but I don't want to fuss with that every print.

So, now I am thinking of a bigger dye sub for me! Any suggestions?
I am looking at the Kodak 8550 and the Olympus P440.

But I am also thinking of using Kodak's new Ultima paper and a dye based printer. I haven't heard of too many people thinking of doing this (we all seem to be using the Epson 2200, but I don't really like this printer - seems like the dye-sub and dye based printers give better color - but alas, with the dye subs and dye based printers, going larger than 8x10 is an issue since 1) the only dye sub printer that prints larger than 8x10 is the Fuji - and it needs water. 2) Kodak isn't making their Ultima paper in sizes larger than 8.5x11 3) The fuji printers don't print any larger than the 2200.)

What should I get?
