Epson 7900 Canon 8100 ink usage comparison
Dec 12, 2009

Can someone please point me in the right direction to learn which of these printers will have a lower running cost?

It's such a major part of the cost of ownership and I find my brain starting to hurt when I look into the consumable cost. Is there a good online resource?

We use a Wasatch RIP so I guess this affects ink usage by reducing it.

It seems that for general photographic printing Canon and Epson are indistinguishable for output, so the ink usage is a very important differentiator.

I found a comparison on Canon's website of an independent test by Buyers' Lab, but it wasn't the 7900 (it was the 7880). Again, they weren't using a Wasatch RIP.

Is the cost per ml about the same for Canon and Epson inks?
