Lexmark ships P350 printer
Lexmark has introduced the Lexmark P350 4 x 6-inch photo printer designed to produce borderless photos that print in as little as 75 seconds with up to 4,800 x 1,200 dpi resolution. The new model is the first to feature Lexmark's new Evercolor II pigmented ink system designed for use with the company's new PerfectFinish Photo Paper -- a micro-porous photo paper that quickly absorbs the inks. Lexmark's Evercolor II inks and PerfectFinish Photo Paper provide photos that last up to 100 years in a frame and up to 200 years in an album, according to Lexmark. The printer can operate as a standalone unit to view, edit, print, save, organize, and share digital photos without a connection to a computer. The Lexmark P350 is available for $100.
Users can print directly from memory cards, PictBridge-compatible digital cameras, a USB flash drive, or from a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone using a separate adapter.
An adjustable 2.4-inch color display eases the process of editing photos via one-touch color fix and red eye reduction. Users can also apply sepia, antique gray, antique brown, and black and white effects. The Lexmark P350 features Lexmark's Fast Pics software to help users enhance, print and manage photos.
