4-0 out of 5 stars Great for what it is supposed to do
First let me say, I have a real 13" printer by Epson and do all of the color matching and correction when using it.

Problem is that the workflow on the larger printer really doesn't meet the workflow needs of the wife.

My wife has been using the picturemate for a year now and we have gone through probably 600 prints.It has been well worth it.The photos are exceptional.

My ONLY complaint is the cropping it automatically does to fill the entire 4x6 when doing borderless.There really is no fit option on this printer to get it to print the entire original image for images that don't match the aspect ration of 4x6.But, it only bothers me and doesn't bother my wife.

Looking at the user manual for the new version of the picturemate with the picture viewer, it looks like they have solved this problem on the new version.Because of this I would recommend getting the version with the picture viewer display.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good prints for 48 hours then Black fades
Ok I bought this for the supposedly long life of the ink. Then my dream were shattered by all the disclaimers. I have to live in a glass bubble to get those results.
Then I noticed that the black when first printed looks absulotely great compared to my Canon 5000 but after 48 hours the black faded? I'm using Epson ink? Whats up Epson you optimize your ink for store sales?
Now I know why there are so many lawsuits to you over yoru claims.
Very Disatisfied!

4-0 out of 5 stars A Little Dynamo
I now have no excuse not to take pictures.The Epson Picture Mate is easy to use and the finished product is as good as or better than any photo lab.The one complaint that I hear and read about is the lack of a monitor.Since I review most of my pictures in the camera's monitor (Nikon coolpix 995) or enhance them with my computer, I hardly miss the monitor at all. If it prints too slowly for anyone, I suggest that you press the print button and go about your business.When you return, you wil have some of the finest quality (use the epson paper) longest lasting prints that you can obtain anywhere.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Prints, Beautiful price
I love this handy little printer! I bought it a couple of weeks ago after shopping in quite a few stores looking at various photo printing machines, this one had the right price, and the right quality of print.

The prints come out beautifully, very crisp. It has taken me a little time to learn my way around the software that came with the machine but it seems to be doing the job. The main reason I didn't give it 5 stars is it seems to print a slight bit crooked if the paper isn't in there perfectly every time. Yet it isn't enough to ruin a print either.... and the software does take a little time to learn and I wish there would of been a booklet with some quick info in it on how to use the software to its max. I adore quick cheat sheets.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT PHOTOS--NO CROPPING PROBLEMS
I just purchased this PictureMate printer for my wife's birthday and what an excellent gift it is!!Photos come out lab quality perfect..brilliant colors!Everything you could want in a personal printer. As for the problem many people have had with the printer cropping the picture when printing from a computer....if you have a scanner hooked up to your computer...bring your pictures up on the scanner program, select printpreview, then normal tile, then fit your picture to the entire tile square and print.....NO CROPPING....I get a beautiful complete UNCROPPED photo every time. If starting with a larger shot, simply resize the photo first OR center the oversized photo on the tile and whatever is inside the tile lines will print on the entire 4x6 photo. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great little printer, but....
I like that it's compact and has good features built in, especially the battery, but the image quality don't quite live up to it being a true photo printer.To those who have this printer, tilt the picture a bit under the light, and you'll see the colors are not smooth, making it appear the subjects or objects are pasted on the paper, including obvious showing of dithering.At least it is true when printed on HP paper; however, looks more realistic and looks like a true photo when printed on my leftover Canon glossy paper.Ink smears are also another problem area for this printer.I have HP 2710 and and has same problems with photo print outs on that printer.HP375B was strictly for the photos and is going back and will be exchanged with just released Epson Picturemate Deluxe, which appears to not have these shortcomings.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good value & performance
Easy to setup and use. Good quality pictures (hard to tell from regular prints). It takes about 1 minute per print. I haven't made enough pictures to know how long the cartridge will last. For taking digital photos and making 4x6" prints, its a great product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Results
Works as advertised.I had it out of the box and printing beautiful pictures in 10 minutes.This was the perfect gift for my non-technical wife who just wanted to push a button and get a picture.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible service
My wife and I wasted hours and hours trying to get HP service. HP has outsourced customer service to several developing countries, and each time we called, the representatives were unable to locate the record of our previous call.We were told time and again that we would be contacted by a "case manager" but that never happened. After weeks of trying, it became obvious that we need to discard the product (still under warrantee) and buy a new (non-HP) product ourselves.

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome!!
I decided I wanted a photo printer just for printing photos. Consumer Reports gave this printer the highest marks for photo quality so it caught my interest. When I looked closer I saw this model has the large-size photo preview screen and it accepts memory cards from all digital cameras. Now my friends and family can come to my house and print photos during parties and other events. It is so great to get the photos instantly from my camera and into my hands. This little printer sits on my kitchen counter at all times. The photo quality is amazing and it is so easy to use. What a winner! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely great portable printer!
I've returned the HP375b printer for this one, and what an amazing printer.No more going to a photo lab or uploading to online photo labs, this 6 color ink printer produces stunning pictures everytime.I got a battery with this printer, and it is amazing how convenient it is to just take the printer and the camera whereever I want to be, then just sit and print.As they've indicated, the pictures are smudge and waterproof, making it easier to handle right after printing them.The 6 color ink cartridge is a single unit, and it is a cinch to change them when needed.

The printer has a USB port in the back that can be used to connect to a PC or other USB devices for backup or from which to read the pictures to print.I've never had the chance to backup the pictures from memory cards to a CD-writer, as my memory cards are at least 1GB each and have found the CD writers to be past its time.However, the printer did not have any problem reading from other USB flash cards or from my 60Gig portable hard drive.A support to write to a DVD writer would be a plus with possibly from next firmware release of this printer.

Only inconvenient thing the others may find is that the Pict Bridge connection is located on the back of the printer, rather than the front, where it is more convenient to handle the wires.I, however, found that it is more convenient to just take the memory card out of the camera and plug it into the printer cardreader.

I don't like wires, and all my devices, including my laptops, are portable, so this printer is a great addition to my overall system.This is a must have item if you love taking pictures, and a battery is a must have accessory.

5-0 out of 5 stars A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
This product is incredible.I know photography, and I'm fussy about quality- these pictures honestly look like they were professionally developed.Plus, with the new color screen on the delux model, it is SO easy to look through your pictures and decide which to print.It's also incredibly easy to zoom in and crop the pictures before you print them! If you have a digital camera, you NEED this printer so that your pictures dont just sit in a folder on your computer, yet you dont have to go out to print them. A must buy! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not work out of the box
I am an IT professional (BSIT) and I bought this product because it is rated #1 by Consumer Reports and I own several HP printers that I really enjoy. However, I had the same experience as several other reviewers of this product. This printer simply does not work out of the box. After trying for 1 day I gave up and called HP customer service and they diagnosed the problem as a defective chip in the printer. They wanted to replace the printer with a refurbished one; I refused and threatened to return it back to Amazon. I was placed on hold and then told that I would receive a firmware upgrade via FedEx overnight. If this upgrade does not work I will be forced to return the printer to Amazon.

Deeply disappointed,

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of Garbage
I had the same experience as another reviewer of the product. this printer does not work out of the box. After trying for 2 days I gave up and called HP customer service and they diagnosed the problem as a defective chip in the printer. They wanted to replace the printer with a refurbised one; I refused and returned it back to Amazon.

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Work Out Of The Box
I bought an HP Photosmart 375B from a major reseller.I spent hours trying to get my HP computer to recognize the 375B including uninstalling my all-in-one HP printer.I called HP Customer Service and they told me the firmware within the printer is defective.They promised to send a relpacement printer within 10 days.At 10 days, I got a call stating the 375's are backordered.At 19 days, I got my printer.Clearly labelled on the box is "REFURBISHED / REPAIRED".I called HP Customer Service and told them how if I wanted a refurb I would have bought one and can I please have a new printer since that is what I paid for and I never was able to use the defective one anyway.They said no, that is our policy.I can't return the printer to where I bought it either because the 30 day return period expired because of the HP backorder delay.I believe HP knowingly released to the market defective product to meet their sales goals and am disgusted that I am forced to settle for used when I paid for new.

5-0 out of 5 stars More fun with digital photography!
This great little printer brings the magic of Polaroid pictures to the world of digital photography. I got it shortly before Christmas and then when we had the great day with the kids and grandchildren we found that we could easily print pictures from each of three different cameras and share them on the spot. Needless to say, the grandchildren were the most 'shot'. Everyone went home to their faraway places with current pictures in hand - not in the camera! My daughter-in-law, who is heavy into scrapbooking, decided she had to have one.

I bought this printer on the basis of a comparison study in The Wall Street Journal and have been more than satisfied. The editing is easy and thorough, the color rendition is excellent and the printing easy to set up for a series of pictures and more than acceptably fast. One word of caution - the color rendition is honest and will show you if your camera is lacking - my old camera was. With a new Nikon D70, the color comes out accurate and truly vivid. I cannot wait to take this little machine to our next family gathering or to the next wedding we are invited to attend. Imagine, being able to send the couple away on their honeymoon with a nice set of wedding pictures in hand!

Buy this printer and you will never regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Portable Photo Print Shop Made EASY!
Imagine printing photos where ever you are with this Photo Printer. It comes with a power cord to use it in a powered setup and that allows you to charge the re-chargeable battery.Unplugged and with the battery installed, prepare to get over 70 photos from a single charge... about the same number of photos from the tri-color ink cartridge that comes in the box. It's compact design makes it easy to carry along with you to get the instant results from taking photos.

After looking at some of the other brands of 4 x 6 printers, I decided that this was the most flexible, easy-to-use and versatile printer among Epson's Picturemate (too bulky, very difficult to decipher screen instructions, no way to see your photos before printing, and leaky ink cartridge), Lexmark's 4 x 6 printer --- (also bulky, confusing menus on the screen and misleading "count-down" clock when it begins to print a photo)and Canon's you-need-a-television-to-see-your-photos dye-sub printer or "battery-wasting" pict-bridge connection

Not only can you see the photo you're going to print on the HP PhotoSmart 375, you can edit (without a computer)it in ways that are impossible on the others mentioned above. Zoom all over the photo image from 1.0x to5.0x ... the printer actually warns you if the image may not have enough file behind it to produce a quality photo. It allows you to print either with borders at 4 x 6 or borderless -- a single 4 x 6 or two 4 x 3 photos or four 2 x 3 photos on a single sheet of photo paper...The results are great and allow you to print your own postcards to send to the folks back home when you take this little gem on your next vacation.

I brought this HP PhotoSmart printer along with me to a friend's house for Thanksgiving dinner. The festivities were captured on my digital camera and then printed on the spot.Everyone left with fond memories of Thanksgiving 2004... no waiting for developing or sending files via email.


Need a passport photo?The PhotoSmart 375 also will print various sizes of two on a page photos.

Want your color photos in black & white or sepia? just toggle a setting and hit the print key.

It also has 6 pre-installed "borders"/ frames that you can select from 16 colors.

Buy TWO... one for you and give one to your best friend!And make sure you get the one with the rechargeable battery, 'cause you'll be taking this wherever you bring your camera. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Why wait for the family to email photos to each other when you can print them instantly? The Sony DPP-FP30 pops out professional-quality photos quickly and easily, and it's compatible with both Windows-based PCs and PictBridge digital cameras. Speeds are a little faster when you're printing from your PC--you can expect 4-by-6-inch photo in about 90 seconds, compared to approximately 120 seconds from a digital camera's memory card. It'll only take a few clicks to make your photos look their best, thanks to the included imaging optimization software--reduce red eye, improve colors, or crop the edges.

The dye-sublimation print process incorporates special laminated paper with snap-off edges, which is available in 4-by-6 and 3.5-by-5-inch sizes. This technology allows dye-sub printers to produce great looking photos even though they're rated at lower resolution than comparably priced inkjet models. The DPP-FP30 offers 8-bit color and 300 dpi resolution, producing borderless prints that are resistant to sticky fingerprints, ink smudges, and moisture. The 20-sheet paper tray stocks just enough to make sure everyone at your party gets a print to take home. Sony includes a one-year warranty covering parts and service.

5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING
I got this printer in December but then in January IT STOPPED WORKING! I was bummed because I was so happy with it. I tried to get it to work everyday for about a week or two then I gave up. Now in April I decided to get another one, but before I did I wanted to see if it would work one last time and guess what?! It came to life!!!! It healed itself!!! I have no idea how?! I am so happy with it!!!!!!! It's the best thing ever!!!! NO NEED FOR THE COMPUTER!!!! But if you want to edit the pictures so they come out looking great then it comes with a stellar program!!! I JUST LOVE IT!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Little Printer
Printer has proven to be EXCELLENT as far as I have used it.Won it in a contest, so I'm not complaining. ;)

I have printed out some pictures and find the quality to be EXCELLENT.The speed of printing is also fast and the printer prints BORDERLESS photos (which is a handy feature).

As with any product there are a few cons.
1) Printer is a PHOTO printer.That means you won't be printing out an 8X10s; you can only print 4X6 photos (but I'm expecting you know this already..)

2)Cable to hook to PC is *not* included.If you want to transfer pictures from your computer, don't expect to get a cable with your printer.The cable is sold separately.However, a flash/USB drive will work perfectly.. Just plug the USB drive into your computer, stick the pictures on it, then plug the USB drive into your printer.

---------
The printer can recognize MANY different formats, SD cards, USB input devices (photo iPod, flash drive, etc..)Which is very convenient.It can also view the pictures straight from your camera (make sure it's compatible, most are..)

If you're looking to just print photos and want a light-weight and portable printer, this is the item for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product
I got an hp325 for Christmas. I took pictures of the family opening presents with my Canon A70 and printed them out before breakfast. Quality is great. Took camera and printer to a meeting, took pictures and printed them. Everybody was amazed at the quality and very idea that I could print pictures right at the table. Haven't tried installing in computer. Why bother? I can download from card to computer with card reader. Love the portability. Getting our son one for his birthday.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome photo lab for $149
I highly recommend this printer. I did plenty of research and came to the conclusion that this printer offers the best features for the price. The other HP model (HP 375) offers a photo preview screen but costs more. I saw a retail store rep print the same image on HP and Epson printers and the HP printers usually were faster with equal or better photo quality.My family has used this printer for a month now and it is so much fun. Great job HP!

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing at first but HP resolved the issue
I was frustrated when I first bought the printer.It creates great pictures from my memory card but it would not install on my computer.After reading someone's previous review I thought I should just return it.I contacted HP and one of the customer service reps told me that a certain batch of those printers have a defect that will not allow it to be installed on your computer.I had received advice from other HP reps and it did not work. The only solution was to exchange the printer through Hewlett Packard not the store I bought it from. HP sent me another printer and my computer was able to recognize that printer.Now I can print from my computer and my memory card. ... Read more

Great little photo printer. Prints like a photo lab. Get your ink online from Costco for 1/2 price.

2-0 out of 5 stars SHOCKED
DS700 PRINTED GOOD PICTURES TILL THE INK TANK RAN OUT AFTER 25 PICTURES. CANON ESTORE WAS THE ONLY PLACE TO FIND THESE VERY EXPENSIVE LITTLE TANKS (22.95 PLUS 7.99 SHIPPING) WISHED I BOUGHT THE HP PRINTER INSTEAD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 4x6 photo printer
My friend got the Canon Selphy photo printer for Christmas.We were set up and printing in 5 minutes.The photos print right to the edge (no borders) and are crisp and beautiful.Also, I loved hooking it up to the front of the TV - so easy to scan through and print!Makes printing less of an "event."If you're looking for a printer that prints different sizes (i.e. 5x7 or 8x10), this isn't the printer for you.I like it because it prints out "normal sized" prints (4x6) with ease. I liked it so much, I'm going to buy one for myself today. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Kodak's EasyShare Printer Dock 6000 is the easiest way to create Kodak-quality photos with your EasyShare camera. Simply dock your camera, press print, and you’ll have a 4 x 6-inch photo with the brilliance and durability you expect from Kodak. You can even hook up the Printer Dock 6000 to your TV for easy slide show viewing. Just like the convenient EasyShare camera dock, the Printer Dock 6000 transfers pictures to your PC in just one touch and charges your Kodak camera's battery.

The Printer Dock 6000 is compatible with Windows PCs and Macs, but a computer is not required. It's compact enough to take anywhere, so you don’t have to wait until you’re back home to start printing.

The Printer Dock 6000 uses Kodak color cartridges and photo paper (with Kodak XtraLife laminate coating) to produce prints that are highly durable, waterproof, and tear resistant to last a lifetime. The quantity of paper exactly matches the quantity of archival dye with the EasyShare color cartridge and photo paper kit. It all works together so you'll always know how many more pictures you can print. And because the printer dock is based on Kodak's continuous tone thermal dye transfer process, you can count on getting stunning photos with vivid color.

This package contains the Printer Dock 6000, 10-piece sample photo paper kit, Kodak color cartridge, NiMH rechargeable battery pack for Kodak 6000 series digital cameras, AC adapter, Kodak printer driver software, and cleaning tool. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for printing high quality pics if you're not in a rush
I got this for my birthday from my boyfriend. I had already had gotten a Kodak easyshare camera from him so this was a great little gadget for me to own. I tried it out the first time months ago and it worked great. It printed out high-quality pictures. Even today, it is still working great and I couldn't believe how easy it was to print pictures from the computer. The only bad thing about it is that it takes a looong time to print. You'll be sitting watching the paper feed through at least 4 times before it completes printing. And buying the printer cartridge and paper can add up after a while.

Here's a tip: if you haven't used it in a while, make sure to get any dust off of the paper because some of it is still exposed to the air.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cool little machine!
I wanted a digital camera, but I don't have a computer, nor do I plan on getting one any time soon.Also, I'm lazy, so taking my camera to a store to develope pictures seemed like alot of hassle.So, this little gadget has worked out pretty well for me so far.

I only have 2 bad things to say about it. The first one is about paper loading.Mine seems to not like a full tray of paper.If I load the tray full (but not too full) the printer tells me it's out of paper and to load more.It took a while of hand feeding the pages until I figured this out.To have it feed itself effetively, give it small bites (fill the tray to half).

The other negative thing about it is it may take 90 seconds to print out a picture....unless it's printing out 50-60 pictures (week long vacation).After about the 20th picture it gets a little warm and takes about 4-5 minutes a picture.

So you do the math....5 minutes a picture, 50 pictures, handfeeding the printer....took a couple days to get my pics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Enjoying a "printing lab" in my room
Yesterday I purchased the Kodak printer dock 6000 to go along with my Kodak Cx6330 digital camera. So far I am very pleased. The first thing I noticed about this printer dock is the size. It's small enough to sit on my little desk with extra room. Secondly, it was a breeze to set up. It took, at most, 10 minutes. Make sure you have you custom insert handy in case the universal insert is not to your liking.

The price for this printer dock is great. Having a "printing lab" in your room for under $150? That's pretty cool. Luckily, I received a 256 MB MC with this purchase free (about a $100 value). This printer comes with a sample pack of 10 4 x 6's. It has a sample printer cartridge. It's definitely a sample. It printed out about 10 photos before telling me I need to replace the cartridge. That being said, I recommend buying a set of 4 X 6's and color cartridge.

Speaking of which, this printer dock only prints 4 X 6 photographs. Not a problem for me, but may be for others. The Kodak printer dock 6000 prints beautiful photographs quickly. First it prints the yellows, then reds, and finally, the blues. The photo quality is superb.

Using this printer dock with my computer is a great option. I am able to print off photographs stored on my computer or edit all photographs before printing. I am not sure if this can be done without the computer, but I can also center the photographs. This way I do not lose any of the photograph while removing the perforated edges. This may not matter to some, but to me it is a very important aspect in making the images look their best.

I do not see any reason to not rate the Kodak Printer Dock 6000 less than 5 stars. If there is, I will edit my review. :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality
I love the quality of the pictures I get with the 6000.I have the DX6340 camera as well and the two of them together are the best electronic purchases I have ever made.The camera is a snap to use, and combine that with this great printer and you've got a match made in heaven. We'd take forever to get a roll of film to the store and then to pick it up would be months and months.By the time we'd get the pictures back, they'd be a year old!Having a printer at home that prints store developed quality pictures is priceless.Plus, I don't have to pay to have a whole roll of film developed, when I really only needed 3 or 4 of the pictures printed to begin with.Very easy to use (set up was 5 minutes), and a snap to clean and change the paper.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cheaper printing carts
The 40-pack w/ink is $18.99 at Costco, which is about the cheapest I've found it--this comes to about 50 cents a print with sales tax. This is 20 cents more per print than taking your picture card into the store for finishing, so as other reviewers have said, you need to weigh the convenience factor. As for the price of entry, don't be afraid to save $30-$50 by buying a refurbished model--you get the same 1-year warranty. Plus keep in mind that the printer includes a 10-pack cartridge (about a $5 value) and an extra camera battery (a $20 value), so the price of entry may not be as high as you think. (A refurb unit goes for aroud $120, which makes it less than $100 after you consider the extras.)

There's another benefit if your Kodak easy share camera didn't come with a recharging dock; if it did, you can probably sell it on eBay for $30 or so. One nice thing about having the camera docked for recharging is that you always know where it is. I have a DX6490 and have yet to have to resort to swapping batteries in a day's use.

Also be aware that a new model is coming out in June that offers a couple extra, though for most of us minor features (check www.kodak.com for details); this will likely drive prices on the current version even lower. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars KODAK Easy Share Printer Dock CX/DX 3000/4000
It is 03/10/2004 A.D. now and thismagnificent machine is working well still and not a flaw. Ease, usages, portability, working with Windows 98 First Editon on a 266 MHZ work horse were contibuting factors. Buying this andDX 4530 Made in China designed in Japan cameras was important in choosing this One-Touch photo printer.

Cost is always a factoring in any purchase. Buying here helped by the reviews, knowledge and cost comparisons worked.

The packets of photo paper and rolls for the media of inks (included in each package)was a major factor why I used this here to buy it. The cost was lower than anywhere else I found.

So far after many hours of usages this is still working and no glitches.

The Windows 98 First Edition works with this well so other people in the world which are not swayed by getting a new non workingerrror prone and unstable operating system. Some people may not be able to get those either ( they are very lucky in my opinion too )

Kodak (EK+NYSE) has a winner here in the long term and probably may have interchangeable brackets for different camera models also .

5-0 out of 5 stars DX400 Kodak Printer Dock
A marvelous piece of equipment. Affording it is vital for a purchase too. So use price comparisons here then compare them.

Read all you are able to help you decide . This has many a=advantages as one is ease of usage. A touch of a buttongives you linkage, printage or more.

The cost basis for paper as in any printer can be lowered if you compare it.

We did here and saved immensely.Being an American Kodak named product does have many advantages.

The desk top size is great. Fit and finish is well.

We purchased this with a DX4539 and are estataic about these.

Afford it then try it. We like it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Very Economical
The quality of the photographs generated by the Printer Dock 4000 are superb.The pictures are super.Figuring the costs associated with the Printer Dock, the user will find out each photo costs about $.63 using the dock.Several photo shops and even the common drug stores will produce outstanding photographs from your digital camera for just $.29 per photo.Some online photo services will also provide this service.My opinion is that the Printer Dock 4000 should not be purchased.It is not an economically sound decision, but the convenience is great.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not very computer compatible
I bought the Easy Share 4530 and the Printer Dock 4000. The camera is great and takes beautiful pictures. The prints look very nice when printed directly from the camera to the dock. But the dock and it's software doesn't communicate with computers at all. Nothing will transfer to the computer from dock. I called tech support twice, when I got done doing all of the steps they put me through my computer wouldn't even restart. Too much trouble!! All in all, not really worth the money if you have a good printer with your computer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great set-up
I think this set-up, offered only by Kodak (though there is a similar system from Canon that's pricier), is outstanding on so many levels.For those of us who aren't big on picture-taking (and then don't want half of the pictures that we DID take on a traditional 35mm film roll), this saves money on printing photos in the long run, and you can print as many copies as you want without special-ordering at the photo counter or just having to get doubles and hope you can force all of your copies on someone else.Plus there's the immediate gratification factor - no need to run to the store to print pictures from your digital.In the end, I don't think it's any more expensive than if you buy glossy print paper and use the ink in your regular computer printer; in addition, it's a lot easier.I'm a big fan. ...

13. Olympus Camedia P-400 Digital Color Photo Printer

Amazon.com Review

The Olympus Camedia P-400 uses advanced dye-sublimation technology toprint an extremely sharp image on high-quality photo paper. The result looks andfeels like a traditional photograph. The P-400 also accepts a digital camera'sSmartMedia or PC Card directly, and it has USB and parallel interfaces for easyPC connectivity.

Weighing over 30 pounds, constructed of heavy plastic, and accented with metalcontrols, the Camedia P-400 impressed us with its sturdy design right out of thebox. To test the printer, we captured photos on a 16 MB CompactFlash card,placed the card in a CompactFlash-to-PCMCIA adapter (not included), and insertedthe adapter in the printer. (Our evaluation model came with the P-RBN photo inkcartridge already installed, but it is easily replaced through the front accesspanel. Also, our unit did not include driver software, so we were unable to testPC functionality.) Using the menu-driven LCD, jog dial, and arrow keys, wespecified our paper type (A4), input source (PC Card), and output photo size (8by 10 inches). We pressed the Print button, and after 2 minutes and 58 secondsthe P-400 rewarded us with a beautiful 8-by-10-inch photograph.

The Camedia P-400's color was very natural, not neon bright or oversaturated,and its tinting was slightly cool (more blue than red). Resolution was only 314dpi, but the dye-sublimation technology showed no visible grain. The resultswere better than many we've seen from 1,200 dpi ink-jet printers. We alsoprinted a slightly soft photograph and then used the printer's sharpeningfunction in an attempt to improve it. Unfortunately, unwanted pixelationincreased along with any positive sharpening affects. Printing speed was slowbut steady at 2:58 for each 8-by-10 print. Several minutes were required toprint one index/proof sheet of 20 photos, with nearly all of that time spentprocessing the CompactFlash card's data, not actually printing.

With only a casual glance, we could have easily mistaken the P-400's output ascoming from a photo lab. Only close scrutiny revealed minor pixelation, whichreflected the limit of our digital photo more than that of the printer. Theinitial cost is high, and the dye-sublimation ink cartridges and photo paper areexpensive; but if you can afford it, the P-400 Camedia makes a fine companionfor your digital camera. --Mike Brown

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing!
Got this printer for $199 new (plus tax).This is the only printer I have ever used that literally is plug and play.No tweaks or fiddling with settings (though the option to do that is available).Right out of the box it prints so good you'd think you were in a Kodak or Fuji lab.I've shot photos with Lumix LC5 and Lumix FZ20 and the prints are spectacular.The trickiest part was loading in the new film, after using up the sample film that came pre-loaded.It took a couple minutes to read the directions.Someone else commented about this and gave the printer a "1" rating.Big deal.After you install the film once, you've got the idea.

I ordered supplies on Amazon.com and the per print cost goes down to $1.58 total.Ya can't do better than that at Costco or Sam's club.Think about it.An 8x10 in 90 seconds for $1.58.Best deal on the market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Only the best will do.
Nestled upon my desk between a new Brother HP-1440 laser and a recently purchased Epson 960 CD printer, is a three year old Olympus P-400. Fast high quality text print-outs are routed to the laser printer, and the Epson is used for the specialty printing of card stock, CDs, and DVDs, but all photographs are created from the P-400, whether in color or black and white.

I originally purchased the P-400 for one simple reason; I wanted the highest quality prints possible of family members and for my wedding video service. The Olympus P-400 has never disappointed my highest expectations.

Most of us are familiar with how bubble-jet printers create dotted print-outs, which from a distance may look OK, but when viewed up-close the actual quality is not as good as hoped for. I have used a magnifying glass on print-outs from the P-400, and not only are there no dots, I actually do believe I prefer the P-400 print-outs over normal photographs. The P-400 print quality *is* that good. In my region of the world, film developing businesses on occasion ruin whole rolls of film, and so rather than my investing time and money into developing equipment to ensure quality photos, I can now get the prints I want, the size I want, and the quantity I want at any time I want.

The paper used in the P-400 is thick, very similar to normal photographs, and instead of the photographs having a brand name on the back side such as "Kodak", it reads "Olympus". The finished photograph also automatically receives a clear protective high gloss coating that does make the print feel and appear to be a developed photo. Unless a person has considerable experience with photography, they will not be able to tell the difference between a regular photo and one printed from the P-400. The actual cost per print-out is around $2.00 (paper and ribbon costs combined), which is not bad at all for an 8x10 or four 4x5 photographs. Advertised life of prints is about the same as regular photographs, around 50 years or more, which is far better than just a year or two with bubble-jet printers.

Changing the ribbon and paper is fast, clean, and very easy. Software installation is also quick and uncomplicated. The user friendly printer actually is a `plug and play'.

Though the P-400 has a normal printer parallel port, I highly recommend only using the USB port. The time required to transfer data from the computer to the printer usually only takes several seconds per photograph while using the USB, but it may take minutes through the LPT1 cable. With about two minutes from clicking "print" to receiving a finished 8x10 photograph, the speed is more than pleasing. The printer is fast enough and simple enough that I have not yet found a need to use the Smart Card slot nor even any of the other console controls. Through use of most any photo or graphics program, print-outs are as easy as `view and print'.

The only problem I have encountered was when the printer was new and the plastic ribbon roll rod would occasionally bind in the ribbon holder slot (caused by too tight of tolerances). I was able to trim off the holder's excess plastic to allow the ribbon to turn more freely, and after speaking to the Olympus technical support describing the problem and remedy (of which they were appreciative for the information), surely the new models will no longer have similar minor problems.

Three years ago I paid over one thousand dollars for the P-400 on sale, and I have never regretted the cost. Recently I was able to print-out numerous specially-formatted 8x10 copies of my daughter's college graduation, which if done through a photographer would have cost me more than the price of the printer. Today's prices are very reasonable, enough that my wife has begun saying she wants one for herself. In our high-tech low-cost society, not many items produce true quality results, but the Olympus P-400 is one product that actually does live up to our best expectations. Highly recommended, I know of no better desk-top photo printer than the Olympus P series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great photo printer for the commited digital photographer
I've been printing 3.2 megapixel images on this and they're virtually indistinguishable from a "real" photo, even at the 7.64x10" full size (7.7 megapixel as advertised in the printer information) resolution. Don't believe the inkjet monkeys who tell you that an inkjet can produce comparable prints - they can't.

I chose this printer over the others available because of the size it is capable of printing, the better color-handling (for instance, the sony dye-subs tend to skew towards overly bright and red tones), and the recommendations of hard-core photo people.

Things you should know about this printer: when all is said and done, you can find this printer for under three hundred, and 100 prints are going to run you about a buck sixty five each (for a single 8x10) if you shop around. If you want smaller, cheaper photos, just print two or four up on a sheet, get 4 prints out of it on a sheet for about 40 cents each. Get out the scissors, and enjoy. Horray.

The printer has been having EXTREME difficulty printing directly from a smart media card - I don't like printing two-dollar blank pages - I've only had consistent success printing via USB connection to my 'puter, but it's a lot faster than printing from the smart media card anyway, so no real loss there - just something to keep in mind.

Reviewers have noted that the ink ribbon can be difficult to install. I don't really agree - olumpus' packaging makes this a straight forward procedure - it's just a little more work than the plug-in-the-inkjet-cartridge laziness we've all become accustomed to.

The printer is rather large and heavy, but you have to understand this was really initially intended as a professional's printer. It is solidly built, has a real feeling of quality construction. Just make sure if your living space is small that you've hollowed out a suitably sized location - think of it like a 16" monitor and you're working along the right lines size and space-wise.

For those with a mac (like me - running OS X 10.3), Olympus is seriously lagging on making a compatible driver. I wrote them and got a swift but lackluster response (no deadline for producing a driver). After printing several blank pages directly from my memory card and freaking out, I found the solution: do a google search for "Gimp-print," an open source & free driver bundle for the mac that runs under 10.3, and powers this printer just fine (so far - haven't tested with photoshop yet - only iPhoto, but I suspect it'll do just fine). It's free. Yay. Problem solved, no thanks to Olympus.

For those of you looking at this printer vs the P-440, the newer version of this printer, the differences are relatively minor (though the 440 does do TRUE 8x10 prints). They use the same paper and ink ribbons, so presumably olympus has a vested interest in continuing to make consumeables for this hardware.

Driver bitterness aside, the quality coming out of this printer had me jumping up & down once the photos started coming out. I'm really pleased, and the overall quality of the prints is enough to let me overlook the negatives, which have all been temporary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quality images at home
I spent the big bucks when this machine first hit the market. The only problem is through Photoshop -- the ppd doesn't print the picture as you see it on screen. In Mac, I've tweaked through Photoshop, then import into IPhoto then print out for picture perfect images through the computer. Otherwise, dumping them back on to the digital camera media then inserting into the printer was the second best way to go.

Prints faster through IPhoto on Mac than through the digital cards.

For 8x10 size photos, still love my P400, even with the cost of film/paper and supplies. Even though prints can be ordered cheaper on some sites through the web, the quality of this printer HANDS DOWN beats anything I've ever gotten back from photo houses on or off line.

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional Quality at a Great Price!
If you want a printer that prints the closest to professional quality as you can get at an affordable price, this printer is for you.The only negative I have is the ink ribbon.I would rather use a cartridge, because it is simpler, but that aside, it prints excellent photos! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for novices and travellers
The printer is highly suitable for non-PC environments and for those on the go. The HP Photosmart 130's affordable price, support for the main digicam storage media, "no-brainer" operation and quality output also make it a good buy for novice and intermediate digital camera users who are looking for a photo printer.

Pros: Portable, no PC required, quality output.
Cons: Printing costs can get expensive, takes 2.5 minutes to produce a 4R print.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Printer for the Price
Considering that this is an older model from HP (HP discontinued this model and suggest to buy Photosmart 145 as an alternative), this is a good printer. It does pretty well what it promises to do - print quality 4x6 photos. The printer is easy to set up and easy to use. It accepts different types of digital memory cards and is pretty fast in printing - less than 30 seconds to print one photo. The quality of the prints is as good as regular camera prints - your friends wouldn't tell the difference unless you tell them. The one inconvenience with this printer is the non-availability of print preview facility on the printer - you have to note down the serial number of the image (by viewing on the camera) before inserting the digital memory card into the printer. Overall, this is a good printer for the price you get it.

I was never one to get into photography but with the gift of a sony digital and this HP130I am in buisness. I take a whole bunch of photos and when I get the one I like I give copies to the folks I think will appreciate it.No waste of money to develope just to see if I got a good Picture....The people around me especialy like my picture of "grumpy" from disneyland last march...they say he is my patron saint...

5-0 out of 5 stars the best little photo printer for your money
The hp photosmart 130 has the quality of a photoshop. I got it for 150 dollars thinking what the heck. But when I tried it out it was more like wow, this thing is tight. It prints fast, crisp, clean pictures off your memory card. It's very simple. You stick your card in the correct slot, and the printer will read the images. The only bad thing is that the pictures are numbered by the order that they are on the memory card. So you have to know that. BUT, there is an alteritive. You can select a range of pictures that you think the picture might be in, ex:(1-27) and then it will print out little thumbnails of those pictures with a number under it. Then from that you can decide the picture number you want to print. BUT, it is sometimes hard to determin what picture it is that you want because it is so small.

PROS-
-Inexpensive Ink
-Great Price
-Easy to use
-Quality
-Quikness
-Sturdyness
-size

1-0 out of 5 stars Mac Users Avoid This Product!!!!
I used this printer for quite some time with my Pismo running OS 9.2. When I purchased a Powerbook G4 running OS X, this printer was obsolete, i.e. no drivers available. Sony was absolutely not interested in making a driver for this printer and could not care less about the customer STUCK with this pathetic piece of equipment.

If you are a mac user forget it.This printer is not worth a dime.If you already have one, find a PC user to sell it to.Shame on Sony for not working with Apple.If I could give it a rating lower than 1 I would.

5-0 out of 5 stars Some hints for getting the best output
This printer produces impressive output, although the colors have a little too much magenta. The resolution is specified as 403 dpi but to get a 1:1 pixel mapping from (say) photoshop you need to set the image resolution to 403.66 dpi.

It is correct that Sony do not officially make the Mac OS X drivers for this printer available for download. They do ship on the install CD though. A google search for "DPP-EX5_EX7" should locate the driver on the internet.

1-0 out of 5 stars A great printer but for lack of a driver
I was delighted when my then-new Sony Digital Photo Printer DPP-SV77 worked on my Mac as advertised: bright, true colours printing in a reasonable amount of time...but when I upgraded to Mac OS X from OS 9.2.2, can you imagine how I felt when I discovered that Sony DOES NOT provide a printer driver for any version of OS X? I am unable to coax it to print in Classic (OS X's emulator for OS 9.x), and so the printer now lies in state on my desktop.

Since Sony now only supports Windoze, I can only warn other Mac users to STAY AWAY from this printer; it is NOT compatible with the current version of the Macintosh.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great quality but colour levels are off a bit
The print quality on this little printer is fantastic....you would not be able to distinguish it from proffessional digital photo lab grade I'm sure. It can be used by itself and a Memory Stick (or other media card via a 'PC card'), plugged into a tv monitor or via a computer. To utilise it's built in effects options (such as gretting card and other visual effects) it must be connected to a tv set. Unfortunately you can not do this with the computer (which seems strange and unnessessary).

Loading paper is very simple. 25 quantity paper packs come with printer cartridges that last for 25 prints.
Print speed is very fast (90 secs) and watching the printing is rather satisfying to watch!
It will only print 4x6 or 3x4.

This printer should get a hands down 5 stars but it doesn't....

The red colour output is oversaturated. You will notice this particulary when you snap people. The skin tones come out way too warm (red) and really are not acceptable unless you touch up the image first via a program. However, by reducing the red tint, you sacrifice the rest of the colours in the image to an extent. The picture you are getting still is better than a dot matrix or lazer print image but you think what could have been if they had addressed this problem when they made it!

Bottom line. If you can pick one up cheap (like I did) and are prepared for the 'red issue', this is still much better than basic printers, otherwise, best to see what the newer models are like.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sony Digital Printer- DPP SV55
Great Unit, makes beautiful pix.Each time you print 25-30 pix on 3x5 or 4x6 you put in a new ribbon cartridge which comes with the paper.Couldn't be happier, paid a very reasonable price from VDO Specialities.Great outfit to do business with!They were concerned with some early misgivings I had and called me!Offered to refund and pay for return, said they were going to refund my money anyway because of the misunderstanding!Guy named Mike Walker, super to do busines with!Highly recommend VDO Specialties!!!! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad, bad, bad
I used this printer twice and kept getting "paper jam" although there was no paper in the printer.Had to send the product back.Wouldn't buy another.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good bargain, good pictures
Since I got my digital camera I'd just been saving everything to CD and not printing anything out because printing through a website gets so expensive!I'd rather just have my own little printer, as long as the prints are good.The prints from this are great, and although they smudge if you don't allow them enough time to dry, they are good quality.I can't speak to fading yet, because I've only had it a month, but so far so good!

4-0 out of 5 stars Does the job as described.
I bought both the HP Photosmart 230 and the Sony DPP-EX5 and both produced a high quality picture.About 98% as good as developed from a service on kodak paper.The 2% represents the finish (which is a bit sticky till it dries) and some pictures come out a hair light (which is actually a good thing if your pics come out dark).Either printer would do the job, I settled on the HP for the name and choices of paper and easy access to many accessories.You won't be disappointed with the results of the printer.It is worth the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little printer that's BIG on performance and value!!
I just got this printer ...wow, am I pleased it it.Since recently entering the "digital age" with my new Sony DSC-P72 digital camera, I've been searching for a decent photo printer - wanting to get not only a LOW PRICE but also GREAT COLOR PRINTS from my "new toy".I then asked myself, "why do I REALLY want [need?] a color photo printer?"....and then, after I thought about it for a while, my answer surprised me:I want [need!] a decent photo printer for quick and convenient printing of 4x6 or 3x5 shots to either tack up somewhere, put in an album, or to give to friends and family.I DO NOT need one for the 8x10's or 5x&s (I can get them at the drug store if I really need them, as I hardly ever do this anyway).Besides, I have a text printer that works just fine....why blow extra bucks on something I don�t need? The HP PhotoSmart 230 is THE color printer for people like me looking for value and complete portability!!

The HP PhotoSmart 230 is compact, portable, easy-to-use, and DOES NOT need to be hooked up to a computer in order to use it.I was actuallyprinting my first photo 15 minutes after opening the box!The HP 230 has a convenient LCD screen that allows me to see what I am printing when reading from my Sony Memory Stick.Even though I have a Sony Digital Camera, and a Sony Clie PDA (both use Memory Sticks), I opted NOT to go with the Sony color printer (accepts only memory Stick media and does not have the LCD screen) because hey, who knows...someday, I or one one my friends MAY have the need to print from a Compact Flash card (or someother type of card, like an SD card) in the future -- the HP 230 easily accepts the four major memory cards out there (including Memory Stick media)!

The prints are clear and the color is decent.Remember - these are 4x6 prints.Some people have complained that this does not print "photo quality" -- my response to them is:"quit your whining, go buy some film and get it developed" (really!).For MY money, this HP 230 is pretty darn near-perfect to 'photo quality' for 'digital camera' shots - if anything, the convenience factor is well worth every penny spent!!!

Here's something that may interest some people "on the fence" about buying a color photo printer:YOU DON'T NEED A COMPUTER to use this photo printer (although, it is a nice feature to be able to do this).

I am SO happy I bought this color photo printer - you will be very happy after getting it!

With mostly everything about this printer being so GREAT, I have only a few "cons":

1) loading up the computer software (not necessary,really) and printing from a computer is a little bit cumbersome at first, but gets easy soon thereafter --

2) printing from a media card produces some great looking photos, but they are not as sharp as when printing from the computer (note:this only applies to lower pixel VGA (640KB) shots; BUT, the printer produces AWESOME higher-pixel shots when printing directly from the
media card!this is great!!

GET THIS PRINTER - IT'S GREAT!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Junk
I was excited about the possibilities of such a portable printer, but after trying it out, I'm returning it. No matter what quality the paper, the prints are grainier than whole wheat bread. And when I ran a comparative print on my 2-year-old HP Officejet K60, they came out crystal clear. Even the HP test pages come out looking like sandpaper.

HP support is equally hopeless. When asked about the issue, their best advise: Unplug it and try again.

I give up. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars connector incompatible with PC USB port
Print quality is good. But the cables come with printer can only connect to Canon digital cameras (I tried poershot and EOS 10D), it cannot connect to PC UBS ports, though it looks like UBS connector. So, there is no way you can print a picture to cp-x00 from a PC.
Anybody there know a way to print from a PC?

4-0 out of 5 stars Great picture quality!
I have been very pleased with this printer.So long as your resolution is set very high on your camera your pictures will be as good as lab quality!

The only downside is it does not come with a disk to run this printer with your computer or the cable needed.You have to buy it directly from Cannon.Also I have had a few pictures come out with very faint lines or dots.

I would purchase this printer again if I had to make the decision for a second time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality Photos
This is an excellent little printer.The quality of the images produced is great. Just as good as traditional film developed photos.It's easy to setup & use either directly from my camcorder or via my computers(with the appropriate accessory CCK-CP200).This is my first experience with a dye sublimation printer & I can tell you the quality of the images produced far surpasses most inkjet printers.The only drawbacks about this printer is it only prints small sizes 4 x 6's & Wallet size 2 x 3's.There is a 3.5" x 5" size but its only available overseas. The paper/ink packs are not easy to find other than online & their not cheap.36 - 4" x 6" prints will run about [money],Wallets about [money].Overall however this is a great printer which I enjoy using.

5-0 out of 5 stars Photos that truly look and feel professional.
This printer produces 4X6 prints on postcard paper that look like they came from a photo lab.The quality is fantastic, and the relatives were in awe.I am very very happy with the printer and the Canon S400 camera I use it with.I now have a portable print studio.Do not confuse this printer with ink jet printers.It uses dye sublimation, a completely different printing process.The result is something that looks and feels like a glossy photo postcard, not a piece of paper.You don't put ink in it, so there is no ink to jam your print nozzles since neither exist in this printer.You buy the equivalent of ink and paper in kits made from Canon.(KP-36IP, for example)

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful prints and easy to use
This printer was very easy to use.Just pop in the cartridge, paper, and plug in the camera.The camera has to be a certain type of Canon, but there is an available computer cable (I have not gotten it yet), to hook up other cameras.The benefit of using a Canon camera with this printer is you can travel without a computer, and still print out pictures.These pictures look beautiful, and the colors are true and bright.Printing couldn't be easier and fast.I was able to get a print while my 2 year old was frantically trying to pull the plugs, press the buttons and all arms and legs struggling.It's fun watching the three colors slide in and out in the three passes the printer makes to process the picture.Instant gratification! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect
I've been an avid amateur photographer for over 20 years, and I can tell you the prints from this printer are top notch and lab quality.

The color rendition is extemely accurate so long as you properly load the Sony printer driver.Those of you who get unexpected results may because of the quality or calibration of your computer monitor. I have not noticed, as some have, that any color is particularly bright or vivid. The price per print is a little hefty, around $0.65 per print if your buy the larger 75 print kit, but of course you only print the ones you really like.Be advised that Sony does not include in the box any starter print cartridge or paper in the box, so you must buy these separatly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this printer!!!
The print quality is awesome, I am using a Sony Cybershot 5 megapixel camera. I took it out of the box and loaded the paper, cartridge and memory stick and started printing right away! It has so many features. You can edit your pics right on your television then print. It has many editing features as well! My only concern is that it does't come with a USB cable, but that can always be purchased at a later time. Overall, this is an excellent photo printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little printer!
I bought this printer in January 2004 with a Sony Digital camera.I was amazed at the color and quality of the prints that come out of this little printer.I started out using the printer connected to a TV.Very easy to set up (connect one cable, select video on the TV) and start using.Since then I've purchased a USB cable and connected it to my PC.Connecting it to the PC (running XP Pro) was a snap - not as fast as connecting to a TV, but not difficult using the User's Manual.You do have to install printer drivers, but the installation wizard was trouble free.The printer paper packs are not cheap, but I love being able to print what I want, when I want!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best And Affordable Dye-Sub Printer
This printer is awsome, its only 200 bucks, which is a good price for a dye-sublimation printer. This baby prints lab quality prints im telling you. My only wish is that Sony would make a version that can print up to 5x7, that would be so great. Even if you dont have a computer, with this you can hook it right up to your tv and use the effects and print. It can print 3x5, 4x6, and little mini stickers which are cool. The stickers are just like the ones you can make out those little booths that charge like 4 dollars. You can make your own much cheaper with this, its awsome! ... Read more
