Epson is bringing its upgraded printer for professional photographers to Australia this June that can handle more connectivity and more media than before.
The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 A3+ printer can ink up a range of different paper types like cut sheets, roll paper, photographic paper and canvas, as well as the more digital variety of surfaces like CDs and DVDs.
The printer uses Epson’s eight-colour pigment ink sets, UltraChrome Hi-Gloss 2, that produce water, smudge and fade resistant prints at gallery quality. Auto-selecting Photo and Matte Black inks deliver deep blacks on either matte, fine art or glossy media, depending on the intended look.
The print head produces a max resolution of 5670 x 1440 for high quality on large scales.
The ink cartridges have been upgraded from the last Stylus model, with a larger capacity that can produce up to 50 percent more prints on the one refill.
Range is expanded on the R2000, both in connectivity and media handling. It can connect to devices through Ethernet, Wi-Fi and USB, and can load in paper on multiple levels.
There’s a top-loading, high capacity option, a single-sheet fine paper slot dedicated to heavier fine art and a frontal straight-through path that can take media up to 1.3mm thick (like CDs). It can also take roll paper to produce panoramas up to 44 inches long.
The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 hits stores this June and runs at $1099.
