    Depends on what filetypes the printer can handle. PDF is the most common (and among the best) types, for vector graphics. TIFF is a standard for bitmap images for print.

    Some printers want the Corel CDR format...

    All my printers want to have printdata in a pdf file CMYK (most of them x3 without transparency)! You need that to have a vector rendering of the text and line graphics.
    Only when I bring photos for printing they usually demand tiff with RGB color....

    A general rule of thumb ive learned at school is that TIFF is the industry standard for print work, best quality and great for going back and re editing without sacrificing the quality of the image. I could be completely off by this so if i am please let me know!

    For books, magazines, adverts, etc.:

    PDF is the expected delivery method when handing off to a service bureau (printing press). But it does not stop there. A PDF must meet certain requirements depending on the provider and press used.

    I see no reason why TIFF or EPS would be superior to PDF for delivering materials for print. Quite the opposite. Editing and preflighting a TIFF or EPS, once it leaves your hands, would be a nightmare, while it is comparably much easier with a PDF.

    For strictly photowork, any lossless format that supports color profiles will do. Though, if you use photoshop, then .PSD is probably the smartest choice since it supports absolutely everything you do in the program.

    TIFFS are mainly for lossless high quality images and scans

    TIFF is container format so it will can apply any algorithm of compression, type of color and etc. So it will be good for raw/lossless source from scan something. EPS or PDF both are good for distribution/printed format.

    but is depend on your usage ;)

    I've always used PDF for vector based art - as requested by most of my vendors and TIFF for stand alone/linked/embedded photos

    Generally if I am saving from Photoshop, it will always be saved out as a tif.. if its vector based then I wont be using photoshop, i'll be in illustrator.. so it will be saved as a pdf.

    Any printer that is worth its weight will be able to convert if needed.

    PDF is my standar for printing, unless you need stand alone photos in photo paper and photo quality professional printers, in that case you need a .tiff file for optimal results, for al the other things PDF file are the best. Especially if your files have any kind of vector objects or layers.

    Personally I prefer eps for vector arts and tiff for photos.
