Two new printers have been intorduced by HP – the Photosmart D7360 Photo Printer and the Photosmart A618 Compact Photo Printer.
The D7360 doesn’t need a PC – it features a large 3.4-inch screen so you can insert your memory card or connect a camera to the PictBridge port to start your printing. It runs on six Vivera ink cartridges, and produces 10x15cm prints in just 12 seconds. Feature-wise, it has a PhotoFix button for one-touch red-eye removal and sharpening and the option of Bluetooth connectivity, with a Wireless Printer Adaptor for printing from camera phones or PDAs. Bundled with Photosmart Premier software, you should be able to pick it up for just under £200.
The A618 is a portable printer, with battery pack and handle and featuring a flip-up 2.4-inch screen. Again, there’s a One-touch Photo Fix button, with 10 x 15cm photos produced in just under 40 seconds. It’s available for £150.
