I am new to this with not much experience in printing photos.
I have been doing alot of BW photography and would like to create some high quality prints on occasion.
Not looking to large format probably 5X7 would be the largest most of the time.
Looking at using some high quality photopaper (thick stock).

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks
Andy

I am using an Epson with the Quadtone RIP. Great results but without the RIP not quite "fine art".

I have a 4800 which is a bit of overkill for you if you are only printing small, but it is a great printer.
