Scan, print and copy with Epson’s new all-in-one, aimed at photo enthusiasts. Joining Epson’s Stylus Photo range, the RX640 has an interface that can be used by photographers of all abilities. Producing borderless prints in under a minute, the printer utilises six ink cartridges that can be replaced individually, while Variable-Sized Droplet Technology (VSDT) produces ink droplets as small as 1.5pl, for photos with smooth detail. You can print directly from memory cards using the built-in card reader. Alternatively prints can be obtained from a Bluetooth-enabled device with a Bluetooth module; or from a PictBridge-compatible camera. Users can print directly onto printable CD/DVDs, and preview their photos on the 2.5in Photo Fine colour LCD monitor, which has a resolution of 256ppi. To produce optimum prints the RX640 includes Epson PhotoEnhance technology, which detects the type of image – be it portrait or landscape – and automatically adjusts the brightness and contrast. For portrait pictures, the face is brightened and the contrast softened, while the contrast of landscape shots is increased. The 3200x6400 dpi Matrix CCD scanner includes a built-in transparency unit for positive and negative scans. Easy Photo Fix removes dust, scratches and dirt, as well as restoring colour to scans. Tracey Leslie from Epson comments: ‘With premium photo quality output and exceptional scanning and standalone features, this will appeal to photo enthusiasts at all levels of experience.’ The Epson Stylus Photo RX640 will retail for £229.
