Epson has introduced its Stylus Photo RX620 inkjet printer and scanner. Developed with photo enthusiasts in mind, the RX620 features capabilities aimed at digital and film photographers alike. It will soon be shipping for £170 plus VAT.
Epson describes the new RX620 as a "one-stop computer-free photo centre". The printer sports a built-in scanner, card slots with support for 11 types of flash media, PictBridge support, USB input and an integrated 2.5-inch LCD screen.
It's a six-colour printer with individual ink tanks; it can output 5,760-x-1,440 optimized dot per inch resolution that can print borderless photos in 4-x-6, 5-x-7 and 8-x-10-inch sizes.
The RX620's scanner is a 48-bit 2,400-x-4,800 system that can make reprints from slides and negatives without having to use a computer; it can also copy black and white or colour photos, or be used to copy printed documents.
The scanner also features built-in "Easy Photo Fix" colour restoration, which can compensate for fading and discoloration in slides, negatives and prints, remove dust and more.
