One thing that hasn't been mentioned is photo quality.
I have an HP camera & Canon printer that are both a little older. No matter how I tried enhancing the photos & no matter kind of paper, even with a photo cartridge, the picture quality just wasn't that great. Of course, the best pics were with the most premium paper, which gets rather costly. But none compared to the quality of the ones I got from the one-hour lab at Wal-mart (or Costco, Sam's Club, etc). And if you're not in a hurry for the prints, wait till one of the chains runs a sale. So it may not only be cheaper to get them developed, you may get better prints as well. I could probably get better prints at home with a newer printer, but that would make it really expensive, considering I don't really NEED a new printer. My Canon still works fine for all my other printing needs.
