HP add Photosmart 7150 added to their range - This printer is capable of printing directly from a HP digital camera. It features the latest Photoret IV technology and HP say it has been designed for families.
Also taking advantage of the new Photoret IV technology, the Photosmart 7150 can be connected directly to a HP digital camera with direct printing capability.
Hewlett-Packard Company today unveiled the new HP Photosmart 7150 photo-direct inkjet printer, offering the ultimate combination of true-to-life photo quality and innovative features for a wide range of everyday family printing needs.
Thanks to the latest advancements in HP Photoret IV precision technology, that can combine the 6 primary inks so as to create more than 1,2 million colours on photo media, users get impressive colour accuracy and true to life, crisp photo quality. The new photo cartridge combines ultra-small drops (4 picolitres) and new photo inks to create dots that are barely visible to the human eye. Capable of printing at a resolution of up to 4800 optimised dpi* in colour, the Photosmart 7150 can also print sharp, black text with the optional black inkjet print cartridge. In addition, the convenient front USB port allows users to connect an HP digital camera with direct printing capability (eg. HP Photosmart 812), for quick and easy direct printing without the need of a computer.
Designed for families, the HP Photosmart 7150 has a host of time and money saving features including efficient print speeds (up to 14 pages per minute with the optional black print cartridge), automatic paper-type detection and ink reserve printing. The convenient 10 x 15 cm paper tray and HP Premium Plus Photo Paper also enables the printing of traditional-looking borderless photos. It ships with the new version of HP's Printing and Imaging software, including HP Memories Disc and a powerful photo album creation software.
The HP Photosmart 7150 is available at a recommended street price of €199, £130 (actual prices may vary).
