Fujifilm today announced the availability of the Printpix CX-400 printer, and confirmed a suggested retail price of £399.99 (including VAT). The printer
is supplied with a roll of paper for 40 4x6in prints, xD-Picture Card and SmartMedia
memory card adapter, USB cable and video cable.
Designed for both home and business use, the Printpix CX-400 is the latest
in Fujifilm's successful line of personal photo printers that deliver high quality
prints with minimum effort, and without the need for a PC/Mac.
Using Fujifilm's innovative Printpix system, the CX-400 requires no inks, toners
or ribbons, but generates true colours on a specially coated paper. This compact,
eco-friendly printer is incredibly simple to use and requires no further consumables.
Instead, everything needed to reproduce picture-perfect prints is contained
within the paper itself.
This Printpix CX-400 generates ultra-sharp 310dpi images (up to 4x6in) - with
or without borders - straight from the media card, using the CX-400's integrated
LCD screen with simple user interface. Printing speed is approximately 99 seconds
for a 4x6in print (without borders). The versatile Printpix CX-400 also has
built-in ID-photo templates, which makes it ideal for printing standard and
custom ID pictures.
The printer's two digital media slots - a SmartMedia(tm) and a PC card slot
- enable the Printpix CX-400 to print from most digital camera media, including
the new xD-Picture Card(tm) format using a PC card adapter (included). A USB
cable and print drivers are also included for printing from a computer, if required.
Adrian Clarke, Director of Consumer Products at Fujifilm, said: "The Printpix
CX-400 is yet another reason for digital photography's increasing popularity.
You no longer need to wait to see your images reproduced on paper. The CX-400
makes printing photographs fast, simple and guarantees high quality results."
Printpix Printing System: how does it work?
Fujifilm's Printpix CX-400 uses a special coated paper with yellow, magenta
and cyan layers. Printpix technology enables this paper to generate its own
colours and images when subjected to the thermal energy from the printer head
and UV light for fixing the image. With 16.77 million possible colours (256
gradations of yellow, magenta and cyan), every hue and halftone is faithfully
reproduced for prints with a rich tonal range, along with crisp and vivid colours.
As the Printpix system does not use any ribbons, inks, dyes, toner or chemicals,
it is simple, economical and ecological.
