Epson's new Stylus Photo RX510 - billed as a digital photo studio - features memory card slots and index form-printing for digicam owners, and film-scanning of negatives as well as easy photocopying of conventional photographs for analog camera users.Â
This recent addition is an integral component of Epson's photo initiative which promises simple, fast and high-quality digital imaging for everyone. Protected by a one-year limited warranty, the printer retails at Rs 19,795, exclusive of taxes.
The Stylus Photo RX510 can print ultra-sharp border-free photographs directly from memory cards (up to 1440 dpi) or through the PC at up to 5670x1440 optimized dpi resolution. It achieves a top speed of 16ppm in color and 17ppm for black text printing due to its 540 nozzles (90 per color) printhead. It takes 31 seconds to print a 4R(10 x 15 cm) photo.Â
An integrated, 48-bit, high definition MatrixCCD (alternative six lines color CCD with on-chip mircolens) scanner with a 2400dpi resolution converts conventional films and photographs into high-resolution color reproductions. Users can also make photocopies with multiple output options and make reprints by simply scanning in their image selection from an index sheet.Â
