Epson Stylus Photo RX700
today announced its Stylus Photo RX700 six-color inkjet all-in-one for the photo enthusiast. The Stylus Photo RX700 offers 48-bit 3200 x 6400 dpi resolution and the capability to print on ink jet printable CDs and DVDs without a computer. The dye-based, front-loading photo inks, with variable-sized ink droplets as small as 1.5 pico liters and up to 5760 x 1440 optimized dpi provide true photographic lab-quality prints. The Stylus Photo RX700 also creates "BorderFree" 4"x 6", 5"x 7", 8"x 10", letter-size prints and copies with no perforations or edges to trim. The 2.5-inch premium photo viewer with Epson Photo Fine LCD technology provides the ability to view, select, crop, and enhance photos without using a PC. It is available for $400 and is backed by Epson's one-year limited warranty.
The Stylus Photo RX700 offers Epson Photo Fine technology, plus the ability to make reprints and enlargements from slides, negatives and photos, in addition to providing one-step color restoration with Epson Easy Photo Fix scanning technology. Dual paper trays and built-in card slots allow printing directly from all memory card formats.
The Stylus Photo RX700 prints photos by connecting PictBridge-enabled cameras or external CD-R, Zip or flash memory drives as well as print from Bluetooth devices with an optional adapter ($70). Sharing and selecting images is possible without using a computer by creating a photo proof sheet that displays thumbnail images of photos that can be marked, placed on the scanner bed and printed automatically.
