New HP printer with larger LCD for easier direct printing. -
HP today launch two new inkjet photo printers, the HP PhotoSmart 1315 and HP PhotoSmart 1115, designed for photo enthusiasts wanting the ultimate combination of photo printing versatility and powerful features.
"Digital photography is a market which is rapidly expanding each year, and as the world leader in the printing market HP is committed to producing photographic printers of the highest quality," said Phil Hall, HP UK Digital Imaging Category Manager.
"By incorporating HP's advanced printing technology with intuitive features such as the colour LCD control panel, the new HP PhotoSmart printers allow any digital photographer to print the very highest quality photos themselves."
The HP PhotoSmart 1315 comes with a 6cm wide colour LCD that enables you to review photographs stored on your photo card, carry out commonly used functions such as rotate, zoom and crop. You can select whether you want to print in colour, black & white, sepia or antique without turning on your PC or Mac. Using the intuitive control panel, you can add a time & date to individual photos and quickly print an index, a range, or selection of photos.
The control panel includes an e-mail button that automatically attaches a selected photo into a message on the computer and a synchronised save facility that recognises new photos on the memory card and saves in any target folder on the PC or Mac. HP say the PhotoSmart p1315 prints up to 17ppm in black and 13ppm in colour.
Compatible with CompactFlash, SmartMedia, Microdrive and Sony MemoryStick, you can either print photos direct from the memory card or via a computer at the touch of a button.
With the HP PhotoSmart 1315 and the HP PhotoSmart 1115, also launched today, HP say photographs have the look and feel of silver halide images more than ever with HP PhotoREt III printing technology combined with HP's range of high quality photo papers.
The HP PhotoSmart 1115 photo-direct inkjet printer brings the capabilities of HP's inkjet technology to families wanting to print high quality photos direct from their digital camera.
This printer includes a range of smart features including a control panel, a print cancel button, a low-ink indicator plus intuitive and easy to use HP imaging software for photo editing and photo album printing. In addition, a save button uploads the content of CompactFlash and SmartMedia memory cards to a PC in an easy way.
The HP PhotoSmart 1115 prints up to 12ppm in black and 10ppm in colour. HP claim the PhotoSmart 1315 and HP PhotoSmart 1115 are both great all-rounders, printing superb photographic prints and documents with vibrant colours and crisp, black text.
