From Pixels to Pictures: Sony Lets You Create Lab-Quality Pictures From Home
PARK RIDGE, N.J., May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- So you've got your brand new digital camera. And you've filled it with shots of your family picnic. Now what? While you can view the pictures on your PC screen, for most people, photos mean photo prints. And the typical PC printer can't match the color, detail and durability of conventional snapshots.
That's why Sony created the UP-DP10 home photo lab. This sleek new printer creates 4 x 6-inch prints of outstanding quality and detail. The prints are laminated for a smooth finish and outstanding durability. And the prints eliminate the white border around the picture -- making them look just like the pictures you're accustomed to picking up at the photo lab.
The Sony home photo lab also saves you time, money and aggravation. There's no need to take entire rolls of film to the local photo lab. There's no waiting for the retailer to finish them. And there's no need to pay for prints of ``mistake'' shots that were out of focus or improperly exposed. With a home photo lab, you print only the pictures you want and make as many copies as you want. It takes just 85 seconds per print. These are photo-lab-quality pictures you can share with your guests, turn into post cards or send to relatives.
Available now, this Sony UP-DP10 home photo lab has a suggested retail price of $389. The UP-DP10 uses "Sony Digital Photography'' paper, at a suggested list price of $14.95 for enough materials to make 25 pictures. This laminated paper enables you to create matte, glossy or textured finishes on your prints.
Sleek upright design means that the home photo lab fits well as a second home printer, dedicated to making pictures. The UP-DP10 connects easily to a computer using either a Universal Serial Bus (USB) or parallel port. The home photo lab includes software for both Windows®-based and Macintosh® computers and features automatic correction for the contrast, tone, color, balance and/or sharpness of the image.
The Sony UP-DP10 home photo lab is sold through select photo specialty retailers and on-line at www.sony.com/digitalphotography.
