    Having the [[Artnid:301474|perfect digital camera for your mum|Top 10 digital cameras for Mother's Day]] is all well and good, but without some way to easily share the memories you capture with friends and family, things can seem a little empty. Photo printers are a great way to remedy this, and the Epson Picturemate PM270 is a fantastic example. Providing impressive colour quality in a portable package, the PM270 photo printer is a quick and easy way to get images from your digital camera to photo paper, and it lets you conduct some basic photo editing too. An optional battery is available, so the Picturemate PM270 can become your portable (if slightly bulky) Polaroid alternative.
