Print straight from your camera

Epson links directly to next-gen cameras

Epson's American arm has developed an inkjet printer that prints directly from digital cameras, and includes technology designed to match the output specifically to the nuances of the type of camera that took the pictures.

The Epson Stylus Photo 785EPX inkjet printer is scheduled to ship in June with an estimated street price of $249. If things go according to normal behaviour, the UK should see it by the end of the year, or perhaps as late as the beginning of 2002.

The printer supports up to 2880x720 dpi resolution and uses a six colour photo ink printing system.

Epson's camera-specific technology is called Print Image Matching, designed to help the printer work in tune with the digital camera that captured the images. The camera and printer use shared settings for colour, contrast, brightness, balance, and other functions.

However, the camera used must support Epson's Print Image Matching technology; cameras that support this specification are also expected to ship this summer, according to Epson.
