Buying a Printer for a Trip to Uganda - Help please
Hello, I am posting because I need some advice.
In may I will be traveling to Uganda for three weeks. One of the projects I hope to work on is taking and distributing pictures. My plan is to take pictures of families, or whatever people want pictures of, and printing it out on photo paper (4 pictures per page).
We will be traveling with a laptop and a generator. It would be very convenient if we could print without running the generator (just by hooking the printer to the laptop)
I am looking for a color printer that is reliable and durable. In the end, I only plan on printing a few hundred pages of colored photos but cant really afford it breaking. Im less worried about finding photo paper, since I dont think that quality varies that much, but I am open to any recommendations.
The printer cant be too large, but size isn't a great concern. The budget for the project is around two hundred dollars, including the paper, ink and printer.
Any ideas or tips? It would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know of a suggestion right off the bat, but you might want to post this question in the Raw, Post Processing and Printing sub-forum:
Alternatively, you could request a Mod to move this thread there by clicking the little red triangle "Report" icon at the bottom of your User ID panel and putting in a request...
