Digital cameras have not only replaced film cameras but have also killed the photo print market. Earlier we were forced to visit a photo studio for the prints but with digital cameras we simply transfer them to the PC. Those who still wish to take out photo prints can always procure a mini photo printer—like the Picturemate 245 from Epson.
It is a compact printer and comes with a handle to carry it around. Capable of printing photos up to 4x6 inches, the printer produces bright, real colours. There are loads of connectivity options too. The front is dominated by the card slots while a USB port has been placed at the back for plugging in a camera directly. The display on the front allows direct, hassle-free printing from the two. The printer can also be connected to the PC for taking prints. The average print- ing time of a 4x6 inch photo sheet was close to 35 seconds. The company claims these prints can last up to 200 years. Easy to operate, the actual printing cost per photo is close to 8.
The Picturemate 245 is aimed at offering a hassle-free photo prining experience using which one can do innovative things. For instance, taking prints of the memorable moments of a gettogether and handing over the prints even as your loved ones leave. A special gesture that they will love.
