The Epson PictureMate Dash ($153 as of 12/11/09) may be two years old, but it's still at the top of our list. Like Epson's other PictureMate printers, it has a convenient carrying handle, and the optional battery costs $50. The printer features two media slots (compatible with most major formats), a PictBridge-compatible USB port, a 3.6-inch tiltable LCD screen, and labeled buttons.
The PictureMate Dash prints photos at a speed of 1.5 pages per minute (very fast, like the PictureMate Zoom), with good output. Though the palette is universally pale (one of the only drawbacks), images show a lot of detail in dark areas. The pictures could be a tad sharper, as well. Bundled with the Dash is ArcSoft Photo Impression software for managing and manipulating photos. Ink and paper are cheap: A 150-photo ink-and-paper pack costs just $40, or 26 cents per photo.
