What's the best affordable home photo printer?
Hey photo friends! Recently I've been pondering the idea of going in on a fairly decent photo printer; something I could keep at home near my desk and use to proof colors/exposures, make tweaks, and eventually maybe even sell prints from. I think I've just been yearning a bit more of a tangible, physical sense to my photographs lately and creating at home prints seems like a cool way to achieve that.
The problem is I don't have much experience with this. I could scour the internet (and likely will go down that rabbit hole soon), but wanted to check with the experts here first. Anyone bought a decent photo printer they liked? How much money do you have to spend to get quality without breaking the bank? Are there solid photo printers less than $500? What should I be looking for and prioritizing?
Any thoughts/help are much appreciated!
