I love all that you can do with the Silhouette and love the fact that no cartridges are needed and was wondering for those that own one if you'd consider the new Portrait or if you like the 12" capacity. I think that is the only difference other than it's smaller and lighter than the Cameo. Thank you for your opinions....

The only difference is that one cuts 12" wide and the other cuts 8" wide. I have a Cameo and I like being able to cut large backgrounds when I want to. It's really a personal choice.

Go for the cameo. You can always use smaller paper.

i had the wishblade which is similar to the original silhouette and now i have the cameo and i love it! i love not having to cut down my paper and i really love cutting a wider vinyl and not having to piece things together.

The Cameo has more features than the portrait like Print and cut. You have more options with the Cameo, you can use 12 x 12 or smaller.

Cariad, I'm pretty sure you can still do p&c with the portrait. After all, it's not like the cameo is printing. Only cutting based in registration marks, and there's no reason the portrait can't do that.

Silhouette Cameo lover!!

I just got my cameo 2 weeks ago and love it I was tossing up between the 2 but I'm really happy I went with the 12x12. Oh and by the way, The cameo isn't very heavy at all either would be great though!

I used to own the silhouette SD, but wanted the ability to cut out larger sized designs; so I bought the cameo. I have not regretted it one bit. Go with the cameo!

I'm considering the Cameo. I am keeping my Baby Bug, so it will be nice to have the option to do the larger sizes. (I don't have an Expression.)

Go for the Cameo. I had the SD and didn't think I needed the larger cutting size, but with all the hype over the Cameo last year, I jumped in with two feet, sold my SD and bought the Cameo. I have never looked back. I love not being restricted to the smaller cutting size. But then again, I create 12x12 pages so having the 12" capacity is something that I DO tend to use more than I ever thought I would!
