New Olympus Printer Claims Photo Realistic Quality
Press release from the issuing company
2/5/01 - According to the company, “Olympus offers its new P-400 High Speed Photo Quality Printer which produces results very comparable to the image quality of actual photographs, delivering continuous-tone, dye-sublimation printing in approximately 90 seconds...all for under $1,000!
“The P-400 can connect via USB port to any USB-compatible PC or Mac, or via parallel port to Windows machines without USB port for viewing and printing from a computer. Or, you can choose to print your images through the printer's SmartMedia Card slot to print DCF, JFIF/JPEG or TIFF photos taken with your filmless digital camera. There's also the option of utilizing the PC Card slot for printing PCMCIA cards, or PC Card adapters for CompactFlash Type I and II and Memory Stick products.
“The P-400 contains an LCD information display panel so you can take a look at your images and decide which ones you'd like to print. The user has the option of choosing the size of the print as well as the number of copies he/she would like. The various sizes include a full-size image, a single-sheet photo album, a postcard or an index sheet with up to 260 pictures depending on your specific needs. The P-400 doesn't limit your printing capability either, allowing up to 50 copies at a time for one print selection.”
With the ability to produce images in 16.7 million different colors and with such quick turnaround, the P-400 is a choice solution for a wide variety of both professional and personal applications. But whatever your preference is for this revolutionary new printer, business or personal, its low cost and high image quality make it a virtual "must-have" for anyone involved in digital photography.
