It took me 15 minutes to get the cis ink system installed and it worked right away with no problems. occasionally I have to reset the cartridges with the reset button that comes installed on the ink cartridges.

You will definitely need to spend some time learning this stuff inside and out so you are prepared for any hiccups that may come up, but it's pretty easy to use.

If I were printing thousands of photos in few days I would definitely go with dye subs, but doing a couple hundred prints at a few events a year it's just not cost effective for me to spend $2k on printers.

With this software I can focus on posing and shooting the picture and my 11 year old daughter can run the printer...which involves removing the photo from the printer and stuffing it into an envelope and handing it to the customer.
I just tested the demo version and you are right...it's that fast but....

I couldn't get it to do a 5 x 7 without squishing my aspect ratio because the camera aspect ratio is 4 x 3.

Do you print 5 x 7 aspect ratio or 4 x 3 ratios?

I think you may have to create a blank template to do 5x7's, I've only used it to print 4x6's

Ok...but 4 x 6 is also a different aspect ratio than the native camera aspect ratio...right?

shouldn't that squish also?

It is a different aspect ratio, that may be something they've accounted for in the software..
