Epson has launched its autumn scanner and printer line-up, comprising the Stylus C80 inkjet printer, and the Perfection 1650 and 1250 scanners.
The Epson Stylus C80 has a print resolution of 2,880dpi and print speeds reaching 20ppm in black and 13ppm in colour. It's the first desktop four-colour inkjet printer to use separate ink cartridges, claims Epson. Pigment inks are used for both black and colour, delivering waterproof and smudge-proof prints.
The USB printer has a 150-sheet auto-feeder for large print runs, and ships next month.
The Epson Perfection 1250 A4 scanner has an optical scanning resolution of 1,200dpi and offers 48-bit input. Two versions are available – the standard model and the Perfection 1250 Photo. The latter provides a 65-x-80mm transparency unit for scanning 35mm negatives, film and transparencies.
Bundled software includes Twain 5.5 scanning software, ArcSoft Photo Impression 3 imaging software, and Epson Smart Panel.
The Perfection 1650 A4 scanner offers 48-bit input and output and has a scanning resolution of 1,600dpi. It uses an in-built ASIC Hyper Processor to scan images up to six times faster than other devices, according to Epson.
Also available in two models, the standard model is for general scanning while the Perfection 1650 Photo adds a transparency unit integrated into its lid. Both configurations can be upgraded to a 4-x-5-inch transparency unit.
The scanner software includes Epson Twain 5.5, ArcSoft PhotoImpression 3 imaging software and Adobe's Photoshop Elements.
Pricing is yet to be announced.
