News of two new Photo Quality printers from Epson has been around for a few months but today Epson officially announced them in a press release (aimed at the US market). The 870 and 1270 promise "First Real Photo Lab Solutions For Digital Printing" with "...Delivers Look, Feel and Now Longevity of Traditional Photo Lab Prints", there's alot of excitement around these printers which should (if the Photo 750 is anything to go by) revolutionize home photo quality printing. Add to this the 875DC which has a built-in PCMCIA reader for printing of images directly from flash memory cards.
Jeff had the good fortune to review Epson's flagship 2.1 megapixel 3x zoom digicam with that SLR-like design it's turned a few heads and generated quite a bit of interest, here's what Jeff says: "The 850Z is a camera that I'd recommend. It's photos aren't the sharpest or brightest out there, but the all-around feature set is strong, and you'll be pleased with its output. The only other camera in this price range with a hot shoe and manual controls is the Fuji MX-2900."
Just found this interesting article over on DigitalDarkroom which is a comparitive look at the quality of "photo inkjet" printers vs. dye-sub printers.. These comparisons were done by "Nai-Chi Li": "For a long time, I wanted to see for myself how well does the best (consumer-grade) inkjet printer stack up against a dye-sub printer. I finally got the opportunity to do so. I have printed a high-resolution test image (3360x2240x24 bits) from these three photo printers: Epson 700, Epson 750, and the Alps MD-5000 dye-sub. Please come take a look at my comparison scans, and see if you agree with my observations"
Just got a message from my good friend Tham Kok Leong over at Digital Darkroom, it's not often that we mention printers on this site but being the proud owner of an Epson Stylus Photo 750 I feel that I should mention Epson's latest printer the 870 with the promise of longer lasting prints (claimed 10 years), edge-to-edge printing and "photo rolls" the ability to produce 35mm-like prints at home with a good quality digital camera and printer is already here.
Here from an anonymous source is a shot of a prototype Epson PhotoPC 850Z, this interesting 2.11 megapixel camera has a fast F2.0 - F2.8, three times zoom lens (35mm - 105mm), flash hot-shoe, USB and can take CompactFlash type I or type II (meaning it can take the new larger capacity CF cards such as IBM's 340MB Microdrive).
Epson Introduces Its Most Powerful, Versatile and Advanced Digital Camera -- the PhotoPC 850Z
Looks like everyone will be naming their camera "CP" from now onwards, maybe it's a marketing technique... Anyway, here's some information on a very interesting new camera from Epson, read on...
Firstly Epson announce the new Epson PhotoPC 650 which is a 1.09 megapixel USB (using Lexar's new JumpShot CF cards) for less than US$350! Secondly they officially announce the PhotoPC 800 (2.1 megapixel) in the US at US$699.

Just received this note from James Wakefield over at Focus Online (one of our affiliates): Just posted a review of the Epson Stylus Photo 1200 Printer on my site by Brian Allen, thought it may be of interest to your readers as I believe it is the only review currently available.
