Epson Launches New Compact Photo Printer
Posted by Jim Ottewill
Epson has announced the launch of a new printer in its range of PictureMate devices.
According to the manufacturer, the Epson PictureMate Charm will offer users long-lasting prints, value-for-money printing costs and "powerful tools" with which to enhance images.
Stacey Tieu, associate product manager of consumer ink jets at Epson America, said that the majority of Photo Labs do not provide great quality images.
"Epson's PictureMate Charm is the best alternative because it delivers the features that are important to consumers - uncompromised quality and ultimate convenience," she explained.
Ms Tieu added that the printer offers "amazing" detail and sharpness in less than 37 seconds.
Features with the PictureMate Charm include a 2.5 inch LCD screen in which images can be cropped and red eye reduced.
The device can print wirelessly or from digital camera cells using Bluetooth technology and also built-in memory cards.
Figures from Epson claim that images will last for up to 96 years when covered by glass and more than 200 in a dark album.
