Digital camera direct to printer

I'm looking to be able to connect a camera directly to a photo quality printer.

Objective is to take pic, review it either on the camera or the printer if it has a screen and print it - effectively in one fluid process. Any suggestions please?

I tried to answer yesterday but it vanished.

I bought a HP 7660 printer last week, from Argos, at half-price, only 75 pounds!!!

It got 87% in one magazine review, and was given a good value rating in another - at 150 pounds, so I saw it as a real bargain.

It has slots for all the usual memory cards, it prints a proof sheet of thumbnails, and apparently you can tick the proof sheets, and the printer will scan the sheet and print your selection. (I find this hard to believe)

I have printed my all-too-few good photos, and the results are great, even on cheap photo paper. The clincher for me is that you can buy a grey scale ink cartridge that gives very good B & W prints.

It is slow and expensive to run though, the reviews say, so I will use my Epson C42 for text output.
