Not to be outdone by Sony and their DPP-SV88 multi-function printer Fujifilm has today announced the 'FinePix Memory Printer' NX-800M which provides the ability to archive and print. The NX-800M has both SmartMedia and PCMCIA slots for storage cards which can then be archived directly to CD-R/RW or printed on the internal 4 x 6 dye-sub printer. Prints can also then be made at a later date from the archived photos. The NX-800M also has a small LCD screen for preview / setup as well as connectivity to a TV/Monitor and/or PC/Mac via USB.

Phil: A few things the Sony DPP-SV88 has got going for it versus this new Fujifilm unit is the print size (the Fujifilm's max is 5 x 3.3 in) as well as the overall bulk of the unit, the Fujifilm box does look rather large.
