After many years of experience, I have the impression that the biggest color eater is Epson. Probably related to the quality, which is the highest, but it goes a lot into money. Canon tastes a little less. In the end, HP appears to be the most usable in terms of price and quality achieved (after calibration, paper type, etc.). I'm talking about a segment with slightly better outputs than basic, with original papers and ink. (Epson Stylus Photo 2400, 1800, Canon Pixma A3 range, or HP DesignJet 30, 120). Can anyone comment on this, from the point of view of a nonprofessional photographer?
Thanks for the insights and reactions.

After seeing the effect of outdoor UV on inks there is no doubt whatsoever that pigmented inks are the only choice. While Epson does a lot of pigmented, both Canon and HP also dabbled.

A list of all past and present taken from here: https://www.redrivercatalog.com/infocenter/tips/list-of-pigment-ink-inkjet-printers.html

EPSON PRINTERS​

CANON PRINTERS

HP PRINTERS​

  • HP B9180 / B8850
  • HP Z-Series
  • NOTE: The B8850 uses Vivera ink which is what the 02 cartridges use. There are about 20 other HP printers that use the 02 cartridges. InkSupply (Image Specialists) made great claims that they had the formulation for this special ink. So I don't know how these printers are not in the HP list.

  • Brother - models using the Inobella ink system
