Features
xSupreme picture quality functions
enabling photo-realistic printing
The printer employs the professional
dye sublimation printing systems. With
its professional digital filter, the printer
eliminates color deterioration that may
occur because of the heated head, and
reproduces photo-realistic prints.
Super Coat 2
The Super Coat 2 feature enables high
durability and moisture or fingerprint
resistance, keeping your prints in good
condition for an extended period of
time.
Auto Fine Print 3
The Auto Fine Print 3 analyses the
picture information of an image,
including the Exif data, and corrects the
resulting picture. You can select a
correction option from “Vivid” to
improve the vividness of an image, or
“Photographical” to make an image
look more natural and beautiful. Thanks
to the heat-resistance process and a
high-speed CPU, Auto Fine Print 3
realizes even higher-definition
reproduction and quicker adjustments
than the previous Auto Fine Print 2
could.
• The printer supports Exif 2.2.
Coupled with the Auto Fine Print 3
feature, the printer automatically
adjusts an image of an Exif Printcompliant digital camera and prints it
with optimal picture quality.
• When you use the supplied
PictureGear Studio software to print
an image from your PC, you can
choose Exif Print picture correction in
addition to the conventional OS
picture correction. In Exif Print
correction, the supplied printer driver
uses the Exif data of an image and the
printer‘s color processing to adjust
and reproduce an image with
supreme picture quality.
Red-eye reduction and other
adjustments (MONITOR OUT/PC
modes only, page 35)
You can adjust an image to reduce the
red-eye phenomenon that may occur
when the subject was shot with flash.
Adjustments of brightness, hue, and
other elements of picture quality are
also possible.
* Exif (Exchangeable image file format for
digital cameras) Print is a global standard
for digital photo printing. A digital
camera supporting Exif Print stores data
relevant to the shooting conditions as
each shot is taken. The printer utilises the
Exif Print data stored in each image file to
ensure the printed result matches the
original shot as closely as possible.

A wide variety of image filters
(MONITOR OUT mode only, page

allows you to add a special effect to the
picture to produce sepia, monochrome,
or paint effects. By applying the GUI
3D engine to the printing data process,
you can enjoy the look of a fish-eye filter
or other interesting 3D print effects.

mode only, page 65)
You can view a slide show of the images
on the memory card. You can also print
the image displayed on the monitor.
PictBridge-compliant**
(page 81)

standard, so that you can print an image
easily from a PictBridge-compliant
digital camera.
Windows PC support with a
convenient USB connection (page
85)
By connecting the printer to your
computer via a USB connector and
installing the supplied printer driver,
you can print images from your
computer.
A choice of print finish (page 61)

Precautions
On safety
• Be careful not to set or drop any
heavy objects on the power cord, or
to damage the power cord in any
way. Never operate this printer with
a damaged power cord.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall
into the cabinet, unplug the printer
and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any
further.
• Never disassemble the printer.
• To disconnect the power cord, pull it
out by the plug. Never pull the
power cord itself.
• When the printer is not going to be
used for an extended period of time,
disconnect the power cord from the
wall outlet.
• Do not handle the printer roughly.
• To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
always unplug the printer from the
electrical outlet before cleaning and
servicing the printer.
On installation
• Avoid placing the printer in a
location subject to:
– vibration
– high humidity
– excessive dust
– direct sunlight
– extremely high or low
temperatures
126 GB
• Do not use electrical equipment near
the printer. The printer will not work
properly in electromagnetic fields.
• Do not place heavy objects on the
printer.
• Leave enough room around the
printer so that the ventilation holes
are not blocked. Blocking these holes
may cause internal heat build-up.
On moisture condensation
If the printer is brought directly from a
cold location to a warm location or
placed in an extremely warm or humid
room, moisture may condense inside the
unit. In such cases the printer will
probably not work properly and may
even develop a fault if you persist in
using it. If moisture condensation
occurs, unplug the AC power cord of the
printer and do not use the printer for at
least one hour.
On transport
When you transport the printer, remove
the print cartridge, paper tray, the
memory card from the printer and put
the printer and its peripherals in the
original box with the protective
packaging.
If you no longer have the original box
and packing parts, use similar packing
material so that the printer will not be
damaged while being transported.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls
with a soft dry cloth, or a soft cloth
lightly moistened with a mild detergent
solution. Do not use any type of solvent,
such as alcohol or benzine, which may
damage the finish.
On restrictions on duplication
If duplicating documents with the
printer, pay special attention to the
following:
• Duplication of banknotes, coins, or
securities is against the law.
• Duplication of blank certificates,
licenses, passports, private securities,
or unused postal stamps is also
against the law.
• TV program, films, video tapes,
others’ portraits or other materials
may be copyrighted. Unauthorized
video printing of such materials may
infringe the provisions of the
copyright law.

Glossary
Auto Fine Print 3
The function automatically corrects
the picture quality so that an image
may be printed in more vivid, clear
and beautiful pictures. It is especially
effective for a darker image with low
contrast. The pictures are corrected to
reproduce natural skin colors, vivid
tree leaf green, or clear sky blue.
DCF (Design rule for Camera File
system)
The standard specified by JEIDA
(Japan Electronic Industry
Development Association) to maintain
the file exchangeability and
compatibilities between digital
cameras and related products.
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
The format used to record the
information necessary for
automatically printing images shot by
a digital camera at a printing shop or
with a home-use printer. The printer
supports DPOF printing and can
automatically print the preset number
of copies of the DPOF preset images.
*1 When the “Auto Fine Print 2” is
enabled and an image (JPEG file) is
shot by an Exif Print (Exif 2.2)compliant digital camera, the image is
automatically adjusted to its optimum
picture quality and printed.
“Memory Stick”/CompactFlash card
Compact, light, removable storage
media. For details see pages 127 to
131.
PictBridge
A standard specified by Camera &
Imaging Products Association that
allows you to connect PictBridgecomplaint digital camera directly to
the printer without a PC, enabling
direct printing on the spot.
Thumbnails
Miniature images for representing
the original images that are stored in
the image files taken by a digital
camera. The printer uses thumbnails
in the image list.
Additional information
Exif 2.2 (Exif Print)
Exif (Exchangeable image file format
for digital cameras) Print is a global
standard for digital photo printing. A
digital camera supporting Exif Print
stores the data relevant to the
conditions of shooting as each shot is
taken. The printer utilises the Exif
Print data stored in each image file to
ensure the printed result matches the
original shot as closely as possible*1.
