    Mike asks:
    Canon's CP200 and CP300 were just announced. I'd guess there are others. Do a
    google search on "dye sub printers" with or without the quotes.

    Is there a 4x6 Dye Sub printer out there that will accept CF card
    input as well as USB input?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    The CP-200/300 series can be connected to a computer or camera with
    USB, it cannot accept a any kind of card. They've been out for half a
    year or more. I think the Hi-Ti printers will.

    Just out of curiosity, why would you want to print uneditted digital
    on expensive media? If you are going to go to the trouble to print
    a digital photo on a dye sub printer, it makes sense to modify the
    photo first to bring out the contrast and the colors in the image,
    even if the photo is black&white.

    The Sony DPP-EX50 has both CF and Memory Stick (and USB).

    Just out of curiosity, why would you want to print uneditted digital
    To replace the Polaroid (in a party for example). Personally I think
    for light duty use, it's much cheaper to use a commercial development
    service.

    Wet prints from a real photo lab are the best way to go.

    I wanted to add that not only will wet prints last longer, but they are
    usually cheaper per print too.

    Dye-sub output is good enough for even rather picky types, and is
    supposed to last well. What is 'best' depends on the user and his
    needs/wants.

    Sony has a couple of models that take a pc-caef adaptor. I use on for the
    cf-card I have and it works fine. (my Sony is the DPP-EX7).

    I saw a page from "Wilhelm" that rated the dye subs from Kodaks "printer
    docks" at 40 years, but only rated the dye subs from Sonys printers at a
    couple of years.

    Both types use dye-sub with clear-coat, so I dont know why this should be so.
