Ten... inkjet photo printers
Kodak hero 9.1
At the high end of Kodak’s hero range, this machine has a duplex ADF on its scanner and a touch panel for control. It has memory card slots and twin paper trays, including a generous, powered, 40-sheet photo tray. As with other hero machines, you can print remotely, through Google Cloud print but, somewhat surprisingly, the print engine is the same as in all hero printers. It managed a 15 x 10cm photo in 35s and photos are bright and well rendered. Running costs are low, though at this machine price, there’s more competition in consumables pricing.

Lexmark Pinnacle Pro 901
Although this is the latest Professional range inkjet Lexmark has released, it’s still looking a bit long in the tooth, compared with its rivals. It uses the same print engine as all Lexmark’s range of inkjet all-in-ones, with the company relying on feature sets to distinguish between models. On this machine, there’s a large touch-screen, memory card slots, duplex print and the option of a second paper tray. It takes around 50s to produce a 15 x 10cm print and while colour gradations are smooth, dark tones tend to merge to black. Discounted, you should be able to pick one up for around £100.
