The Stylus Photo R2000 model from printer and ink cartridge maker Epson could be a good choice for photography enthusiasts looking to make professional-quality printouts.

It is capable of printing on sheets up to 13 inches wide and can hold a range of types, including rolls of specialist photo paper and canvas.

The device also uses Epson's Ultrachrome Hi-Gloss inks that are water, fade and smudge resistant, while the large cartridge size will mean they need replacing less often than standard packs.

One reviewer to be impressed with the Stylus Photo R2000 was PC World's Campbell Simpson, who stated he was "entirely happy with the detail and quality of the printouts", which he said are on a par with the best professional-quality photo printers available.

He also noted that replacement ink cartridges for the device are good value for a model of this type, while he suggested the Wi-Fi connectivity could be an advantage for users looking to hook the machine up to a home network.

Another A3-capable device said to be a good choice for images is the Canon Pixma iX6550, which was recently described by CNet's Niall Magennis as being excellent at producing photos.
