CASTING NEW LIGHT ON THE PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESS Performance without the complications When it comes to bringing unique ideas to life, photographers have extremely high standards. Traditionally, these have only been met by photo labs or complex darkroom processing. Now it’s time to step out of the darkroom and put your trust in EPSON, the recognised photo printing experts. Taking care of quality Big resolution, small dots Quality, flexibility and efficiency are built in. The eight-cartridge system includes Red and Blue inks which create a colour gamut rivalling that of silver halide and adds depth to natural colours such as sky, sea, sunsets and autumn leaves. At the same time, the latest EPSON UltraChrome Hi-Gloss™ pigment inks recreate perfect tones that will be lightfast for up to 80 years*. Photos and reprints look superb, even when enlarged up to borderless A4 size, because this printer can achieve an amazing resolution of up to 5760 optimised dpi on suitable media. At the same time, the finest detail is achieved and fast print speeds maintained by using a range of dot sizes, including a minute droplet of just 1.5 picolitres.

This is a fine tuning tool designed for optimising highly durable gloss pigment ink prints. The photographic result is a smooth and even gloss finish, comparable to silver halide, but with a longer lifetime. Also, the finest results are achieved on both Matte or Gloss media, because the printer features two different blacks that optimise performance for each, automatically applied by the driver when you select paper type. Of course, the ability to replace each individual cartridge also maximises cost efficiency. Total control – from capture to print The digital format has revolutionised photography, but the thrill of watching your photos emerge from your printer is just as rewarding as it was in your darkroom. However, now you can experience the same emotions, but in the daylight. Once connected to your computer you can perfect your images using on-screen photo editing software including EPSON PhotoQuicker, an easy print layout tool. The digital format also lets you store your photos safely on your computer and print as many copies as you like, when you like, in a huge variety of formats. With EPSON, make a seamless transition into the digital world, and bring your back catalogue along too. With an EPSON scanner such as the EPSON Perfection 4870 Photo, scan, edit and even restore old film and photos. Whether originals were captured on film or digital camera, the EPSON Stylus Photo R800 produces superb results, and you can even print directly onto CD faces and create truly personalised archives. 198mm Specifications 307mm MODEL NAME EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R800 PRINT TECHNOLOGY A4 Black and Colour Inkjet Photo Printer EPSON Micro Piezo™ EPSON Variable-sized Droplet Technology with Ultra Micro Dot™ for 1.5pl droplets Print Head of 1440 nozzles (180 nozzles per Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Red, Blue, Photo Black, Matte Black, Gloss Optimizer) PRINT QUALITY Up to 5760* x 1440dpi *optimised dpi on suitable media using RPM (Resolution Performance Management) 495mm PRINT SPEED Black Text (Economy Mode)*1 17 ppm Colour Text (Economy Mode)*2 Photo Bike Image (Fine Mode)*3 8 ppm 39 seconds *See Image Samples *1 A4 Black Text Memo INTERFACE USB 2.0 (Hi-Speed) Type-B Interface for PC and Mac connection IEEE 1394 (FireWire) Interface for PC and Mac connection Print Speeds Note: PAPER HANDLING 100 A4 sheets (Plain Paper) Cut Sheet Feeder 100 A4 Photo Quality Ink Jet Paper 80 sheets of 360dpi Ink Jet Paper 20 sheets of Photo or Glossy Paper 1 sheet of Transparency 10 envelopes PAPER SUPPORT Paper Size Weight (Cut Sheet) Envelope Weight (Envelope) Maximum Printable Area (mm) Print Margin *2 A4 Colour Text Memo *3 10x15cm Photo Bike Image Print times will vary depending on computer configuration, print setting, application, coverage and page complexity.
