Features
Photo-realistic printing
With its dye sublimation printing system, the digital photo printer DPP-EX7
can make photo-realistic prints meeting a number of different requirements.
Super Coat 2 feature
The Super Coat 2 enables high durability and moisture or fingerprint
resistance, keeping your prints in good picture quality for an extended
period of time.
Auto Fine Print 2 feature (page 58)
The Auto Fine Print 2 analyses the picture information of an image and
corrects it as vivid, clear, and natural picture.
Exif 2.2* (Exif Print) support (page 58)
The printer supports Exif 2.2. When the Auto Fine Print 2 is effective, the
printer automatically adjusts an image saved by a digital still camera
compatible with the Exif Print standard and then print it with optimal
picture quality (for JPEG files only).
Easy stylus operations on the color LCD screen
With the color touch-sensitive LCD screen, you can easily perform the
operations with the touch of a stylus and preview the images to be printed.
To select an image or an item, just tap the screen lightly with the stylus
supplied with your printer. A series of screen-activated operations will
navigate you though the printing process.
Selection of print sizes and border/borderless print
You can select from a large, dynamic Post Card (4 x 6 inch) size, 3.5 x 5 inch
size print or an economical Small (3.5 x 4 inch) size print. For the Post Card
(4 x 6 inch) size and 3.5 x 5 inch size prints, you can also select a print with or
without border.
Selection of print finish (page 59)
You can select the print finish from either glossy or texture.
* Exif (Exchangeable image file format for digital still cameras) Print is a global
standard for digital photo printing. A digital still 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.
6 GB
With the supplied paper tray, you can print up to 25 sheets for Post Card (4 x
6 inch) size and 30 sheets for 3.5 x 5 inch size and Small (3.5 x 4 inch) size
print paper at one time.
A wide variety of image processing and adjustments without
using a computer (page 30)
A variety of image processing functions allow you to magnify/reduce, rotate,
or move the image. You can also enter and overlay characters on an image or
add a special effect to the picture to produce sepia, monochrome, or paint
pictures. Adjustments of brightness, hue, and other elements of picture
quality are possible.
A wider variety of prints of “Memory Stick” or PC card images
without using a computer
x You can view the digital still camera images stored in a “Memory Stick”
or PC card on the LCD screen without using your computer.
x You can print an image placed with the cursor. You can also select
multiple images with specifying the print quantity (page 23).
x All the contained images or all the DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)
preset images can be printed at one time (page 28).
x You can print an image with the recorded or saved date (page 59). You
can also enjoy a slide show of the images (page 63).
x The Creative Print menu allows you to make even more types of prints
such as an original card, calendar, split images, a sticker with framed
images, and an index print of the images stored in a “Memory Stick” or
PC card (page 36). With the Tool function, you can paste characters,
messages, stamps, or drawings onto an image.
For the “Memory Stick”, see page 86. For the PC card, see page 89.
Printing from your computer with a convenient USB connection
(page 66)
By connecting the printer and your computer with the USB cable supplied
and installing the supplied DPP-EX7 printer driver software on your

inch size and Small (3.5 x 4 inch) size print paper.
– Do not place different types or sizes of paper in the tray.
– Do not write or type on the printing surface of the paper before printing. If you
want to write greetings or draw on the printed surface after printing, use an oil
ink pen.
– You cannot print on the reverse side of the print paper (ex. the address side of the
Post Card (4 x 6 inch) size print paper).
– Do not print on the used print paper. Printing an image twice on the same paper
will not make the printed image thicker.
– Do not print on the print paper that is ejected from the printer without being
printed.

Basic printing operations
• When the “MEMORY STICK” or PC CARD indicator blinks or the data access message
appears, do not eject the “Memory Stick” or PC card. Otherwise, it may crash.
•While printing, never move or turn off the printer; the print cartridge or paper may
become stuck. If this happens, turn the printer off and on, and resume printing from
the beginning.
•While printing, the print paper is partially ejected from the paper outlet in stages.
Never pull out the paper forcibly until the PRINT indicator turns off and the print
paper emerges automatically.
•When the width or height of an image is smaller than 480 dots, the
image is displayed in a small size. You can print the image but the
printing quality is rough due to its small image size.
•An image without thumbnail data, such as those created with a
computer application, is displayed as the mark shown right. If you
select the mark and the preview image is displayed, you can print the
image. If you cannot print, see “Troubleshooting” on page 90.
•Once you have selected images in the “Printing multiple images” procedures, you
cannot print an image with the cursor that is not selected.
•The time required to display a preview image differs depending on the number of
files contained in a “Memory Stick” or PC card, image size, or the file type.
•The time required to display the image list differs depending on the number of files
contained in a “Memory Stick” or PC card, image size, file type or the digital still
camera type.
•The printer cannot display the images saved in a folder of forth or higher hierarchy.
•The image number displayed in the screen is the same as those displayed in your
digital still camera. For a file created with a computer application, the first 8
characters of its file name will be displayed as its image number with the printer.
•When you name or rename an image file on your computer and its file name includes
characters other than alphanumeric characters, the file name may not be displayed
correctly or the image may not be displayed (read error) on the printer.
•Do not leave more than 20 sheets of the ejected printed paper on the paper tray.
•When using your printer in low ambient temperatures, the black lines may be
displayed on the LCD display, which is not of a printer’s malfunction. You can print
an image without problem.

Precautions
On safety
• Operate the printer on 120 V AC, 60
Hz (for the 120V area) or 220 to 240 V
AC, 50/60 Hz (for the models for
other areas) only.
• 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.
• Take care not to scratch or damage
your printer’s LCD screen. Always
use the supplied stylus or a plastictipped pointer to tap on the screen.
Do not use a real pen, pencil, or
other sharp object on the screen.
• Your printer’s screen is made of
glass. Do not drop or submit your
printer to external shock.
84 GB
On installation
• Avoid placing the printer in a
location subject to:
– vibration
– high humidity
– excessive dust
– direct sunlight

• Do not use electrical equipment near
the printer. The printer will not work
properly in electromagnetic fields.
• The printer is designed to operate
horizontally. Never attempt to
operate the printer in a tilted
position.
• 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
On cleaning
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, turn off the power and do not
use the printer for at least one hour.
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 cleaning of the LCD display, please
see page 12.
On transport
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.

About the “Memory Stick”
What is “Memory Stick”?
“Memory Stick” is small, lightweighted, and next-generation IC
storage media with a larger capacity
than a floppy disc. You can use the
“Memory Stick” to exchange data
among “Memory Stick” compatible
devices. In addition, you can use the
“Memory Stick” as a removable external
storage device to save your data.
Types of “Memory Stick”
Following types of “Memory Stick” are
available for versatile purposes.
• “Memory Stick”: “Memory Stick”
can store all types of data except for
the one that requires the
“MagicGate” copyright protection
technology.
• “Memory Stick (with memory
select function)”: “Memory Stick
(with memory select function)”
incorporates multiple 128MB
memory units, which can be selected
by a user via a mechanical switch on
the reverse side of the media. Each
memory unit can be used to
categorize various types of data.
You cannot select multiple memory
units together or continuously.
• “MagicGate Memory Stick” :
“MagicGate Memory Stick ”
employs the “MagicGate” copyright
protection technology.
86 GB
• “Memory Stick PRO” : “Memory
Stick PRO” employs the
“MagicGate” copyright protection
technology and can be used only
with “Memory Stick PRO” compliant
devices.
• “Memory Stick-ROM”: “Memory
Stick-ROM” is the read-only
“Memory Stick” storing the data.
You cannot save or delete its data.
On “Memory Stick Duo”
“Memory Stick Duo” is smaller than the
standard-sized “Memory Stick”. When
inserted into the Memory Stick Duo
adaptor, the “Memory Stick Duo” is the
same size as the standard-sized
“Memory Stick”, and can be used with
“Memory Stick” compliant devices.
• When using the “Memory Stick Duo”
on the printer, make sure to insert
the “Memory Stick Duo” into the
Memory Stick Duo adaptor and then
insert the adaptor containing the
“Memory Stick Duo” into the
printer.
• Before using the “Memory Stick
Duo”, check the correct direction to
insert the “Memory Stick Duo”. If
you attempt to insert it in a wrong
direction, the “Memory Stick Duo”
and the printer may be damaged.
• Never insert the Memory Stick Duo
adaptor that contains no “Memory
Stick Duo” into a “Memory Stick”compatible device. If you do, the
device may be damaged.
Types of “Memory Stick”

*1 The printer cannot read/write the data subject to
“MagicGate” copyright protection.
The data read/write speed differs
depending on the combination of the
“Memory Stick” and the device you use.
What is “MagicGate”?
“MagicGate” is the copyright protection
technology that works when both the
“Memory Stick” and the device employ
the technology. The “MagicGate”compatible device and the “MagicGate
Memory Stick” attest that each other
supports the “MagicGate” technology
and encode the data they exchange.
The printer does not support the
“MagicGate” standards and cannot read
or write the data subject to the
“MagicGate” copyright protection.
Notes on use
*2 Use the adaptor designed for the “Memory Stick
Duo” you use.
We cannot guarantee the operations of all the “Memory
Stick” media.

Glossary
Auto Fine Print 2
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 still
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 still 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.
Exif 2.2 (Exif Print)
Exif (Exchangeable image file format
for digital still cameras) Print is a
global standard for digital photo
printing. A digital still 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.
*1 When the “Auto Fine Print 2” is
enabled and an image (JPEG file) is
shot by an Exif Print (Exif 2.2)compatible digital still camera, the
image is automatically adjusted to its
optimum picture quality and printed.
“Memory Stick”
A next-generation, compact, light,
removable storage media used with
a digital still camera, video camera,
or PC. In its compact body, it can
record a larger volume of data than a
floppy disc can. You can use it to
exchange data among “Memory
Stick” ready devices and also use it
as removable and external storage
medium.
Thumbnails
Miniature images for representing
the original images that are stored in
the image files taken by a digital still
camera. The printer uses thumbnails
in the image list.
