I have an Artisan 800.  It is a great printer but useless for Alt-photo.  It
will not print on transparent material. The sensors do not pick it up.
If you fool them by taping a solid piece of paper to the back of the
transperency material, the ink runs all over the place.
I have a very artistic rendition of the skyline of Montreal but no negative
to work with.

Subject: [alt-photo] Replacing Epson 1270

After almost 10 years, my 1270 has quit on me. I am looking for a  
simple, inexpensive printer that offers the same features as the

The local electronics shop that sells something close to my needs is  
the Epson Artisan 50 Inkjet Printer - C11CA45202 (~$100).

Has anyone used this and how did they find it? Is there a better  
equivalent printer available?

TIA for any input and/or suggestions.  Rajul
