Kodak EasyShare 500
Kodak was the most expensive thermal printer manufacturer in terms of consumables last year. They now have made 180° turn and are the cheapest. From 75 cents per print a year ago they descended to 29 cents. If you often print pictures and are equipped with an older model, you might well save money by throwing it out. Sharpness has also been improved, as well as color quality, but unfortunately not necessarily in a good way. Kodak tried to make the pictures very contrasted and vivid and pushed the gamma a little too far. The result is burned out lighter shades and dark shades that are too deep.
Finally, if the print rate is good and "giant" monitor very appreciable, we feel it’s is a little too noisy. It’s less so than the Sony but more than average.
