This is what I use and I must say the photos are gorgeous!!!!!
I am addicted to the 13x19 photos. You can also print on the fine art papers as well. It has a top loader and a bottom loader, in case you want to print art quality prints. It has 10 ink cartridges, and it prints photo lab quality prints. There is also a 9000 and it is $300.00 cheaper. It also does the above operations)

How long does your ink tend to last in that?

It last longer than my regular printer and I hardly ever use that printer!! I can say it goes alot quicker when you are printing 13x19 one after another,but usually it is just one tank at a time that runs low, so it isn't usually doesnt cost that much at one time. When I printed a ton of the 13x19s like crazy it still only made 3 tanks go low, so I would say it is a rather good printer as far as ink. (Thank goodness its not a Lexmark) I printed all of those 13x19s for a family memeber. They turned out great.

What sort of price is it for the individual tanks then?

I them at staples for 15.00 each. They also have really nice photo paper that they have buy one get one free all of the time (this is the way that I buy it) I used to spend more taking my pics to get them developed and even then ...if they do not calibrate their machines, you have a chance of getting horrible photos.

Hmmmm Thanks, I may well look into one of them then.
Sounds like a good investment.

Yeah its amazing. I know a professional photographer that uses the 9000. He loves it also.It doesn't matter how nice of a camera you have if you have your photos developed by a lab that doesn't take excellent care of the equipment. You know what I mean?

Cheapest price I can see the printers for at the moment is £392 so it will have to wait until after Santa but certainly worth looking at.

I can honestly say they have awesome color. For someone that isn't into photography it would be pointless to buy it, but for people such as ourselves...GREAT!

Do you know if you can fit one of those ink tank devices onto this so that you have a continuous supply of ink, much cheaper than buying cartridges all the time.

I dont know. I never checked into it. What is it exactly?

It is similar to this.
Basically, you have large tanks which you put your ink in, (Which is brought in bulk) and then these tanks feed your printer.
I saw them when i was looking into printing mugs etc, and they seemed a good idea at the time.
