New Sony Picturestation
Sony has announced two new PictureStation dye-sublimation photo printers. The FP90 features a flip-up 3.6-inch LCD and the FP70 is equipped with a fixed 2.5-inch LCD. Both models can print up to 4x6 inch images and are said to be light enough to be truly portable, even incorporating their own carry handles. Common to both are a variety of filters for emphasizing lights, specific colors or creating a canvas-effect texture, in addition to a superimpose mode to overlay a message over an image and automatic photo correction. The USB-enabled FP90 and FP70 have 20 sheet paper trays and are compatible with any PictBridge-enabled USB camera as well as Memory Stick media. The FP70 will be priced at $150, while the FP90 will be priced at $200. Sony expects both printers to be available in March.
