I've asked similar question earlier, but as some time has passed I hoping to get some new information. So, does anyone of you own new Epson Stylus C82 and have you tried to print photos with it ? If you have how do you compare results with true 6/7 inks photo printers ? I'm just curious as the printer is supposed to give 5760 dpi output with pigment inks which lasts for 70 years. Any information appreciated. Thanks.

The C82 is quick, cheap, and pigment based, but the photo print quality can't compare to the 6-color photo printers or Ultrachrome 7 color. 4 colors limits your printing color gamut and ability to render pale tones, pigment inks further reduce the color gamut. This is a nice printer for scrapbooking, but it's not the best choice if you want high quality photo prints:
When you read the above reviews, keep in mind the class of printers that they are comparing. As PC Magazine says, "Photos printed on photo paper fell just short of true photo quality—admirable for an ink jet printer."
