Stylus Photo 1400 Features
Epson Claria photographic ink represents a major breakthrough in
dye-based inkjet printing technology. Not only does it support a wider
colour gamut than traditional photo-printing technologies, it is far more
resistant to fading than previous dye-based inks. As a result, it offers print
quality that rivals that of traditional photo printing.
Significantly improved print life
Claria photographic ink has an expanded colour
gamut with much richer blues and greens than the
standard sRGB colour space, and can render them
much more vividly than traditional photo printing
methods. It also offers more deeply saturated
yellows than previous EPSON dye-based inks.
Replace only the colours you need
Richer blues and greens than sRGB
The Stylus Photo 1400 is equipped with separate
ink cartridges for each of its six colours: cyan, light
cyan, magenta, light magenta, yellow, and black.
Because the cartridges can be replaced
individually, the Stylus Photo 1400 offers much
more cost-efficient operation than printers that use
a single cartridge for all colours.
Claria Photographic Ink
Cost-efficient individual ink cartridges
A wider colour gamut
Claria Photographic Ink
A major breakthrough in photo
print quality and fade-resistance
Claria photographic ink has been
strengthened at a molecular level, making
it extremely resistant to the fading that is
caused by light and oxidised gasses such
as ozone. Compared to photo prints
made with previous dye-based inks,
Claria ink photo prints retain their
beauty longer under a wide range
of conditions. Their potential album
storage life is estimated at up to
200 years.*
*Please refer to for test conditions.
Fade-resistance at a molecular level
The Stylus Photo 1400 Claria photographic ink has a
wider gamut than sRGB, with a particularly rich
palette of blue and green colour tones.
Previous dye-based ink molecules
contained fewer atoms, and
colours would fade because light
and ozone or other oxidized
gasses could destroy the bonds
between the atoms.
The dye molecules in Claria ink
are made up of more atoms. This
ensures that the bonds between
the individual atoms are stronger,
and makes the molecules more
resistant to damage.
Claria ink dye molecules are
further protected by atomic
shields and aggregated into
strong, dense clusters. The result
is rich, vibrant, fade-resistant
colour and significantly extended
print life.
Conceptual representation of molecular structure
Separate cartridges for cyan, light cyan, magenta, light
magenta, yellow, and black inks reduce waste by
allowing individual cartridge replacement.

New MicroPiezo print head
Thanks to its advanced new MicroPiezo print head,
the Stylus Photo 1400 can fire more ink droplets
per second, achieving approximately 1.5x the
throughput speed of the Stylus Photo 1290 with no
sacrifice in image quality. It can also produce ink
droplets as small as 1.5 picolitres, and print at
optimised resolutions as high as 5760 x 1440 dpi.
The advanced new MicroPiezo print head also
makes our Variable-Sized Droplet technology even
more powerful, with 5-level droplet size control for
cyan + light cyan and magenta + light magenta

Exif Print makes it easy to produce high-quality colour photos directly from
digital cameras that support the Exif Print standard. The digital cameras
record shooting-parameter data with each image that can be used by the
printer to ensure optimum image quality when the photo is printed.
PRINT Image Matching is an advanced, Epson-developed technology that
assures that print output reflects the colour reproduction intended by digital
camera manufacturers. Supported by a wide range of manufacturers, it makes it
easy to obtain consistent colour reproduction and image quality.

High image quality, faster throughput, and longer print life
Although the Stylus Photo 1400 and the Stylus
Photo 1290 are both 6-colour printers with A3+
size paper handling, the Stylus Photo 1400 offers
significant performance advantages. In terms of
print quality, the Stylus Photo 1400 boasts a
minimum droplet size of 1.5 picolitres, vs. 4
picolitres for the Stylus Photo 1290. The most
pronounced difference, however, is in the Stylus
Photo 1400 Claria photographic ink and improved
MicroPiezo print head. Not only does Claria ink
offer far superior fade-resistance, the improved
print head assures smoother gradations and
approximately 1.5 times the throughput speed at
equivalent resolution. In addition, the Stylus Photo
1400 offers the cost efficiency of individual ink
cartridges, whereas the Stylus Photo 1290 uses a
single ink cartridge for all colours except black.

The printer for those who demand still more
The primary differences between the Stylus Photo
1400 and the Stylus Photo R1800 are attributable
to the inks they use. Where the Stylus Photo 1400
uses dye-based Claria photographic ink, the Stylus
Photo R1800 uses pigment-based Ultrachrome
Hi-Gloss ink that offers a wider colour gamut and
better archival life, as well as excellent short-term
colour stability. In addition, the Stylus Photo
R1800 accepts roll and fine art paper, and
because it has twice as many ink nozzles, it prints
much faster. The affordable Stylus Photo 1400
may be a more attractive choice for amateur
photographers and business users with general
colour printing needs, but for users who are
serious about photography, and want the finest,
most fade-resistant print quality, the Stylus R1800
is the printer of choice.
