Epson announced the launch of PictureMate PM520, an upgraded and improved version of the super successful photo printer,PictureMatePM245. The PictureMatePM520 offers borderless photo printing upto 5×7” &printing with border up to A5 size.
The product is perfect for small photo studios as well as tourist photographers looking for instant prints due to its portability, and fills in the requirement of printing 4×6, 5×7 & A5 prints. The product is wireless and supports WiFi and WiFi direct along with other Epson connect features. The printer consists of a 2.7” LCD screen and supports connectivity with an SD Card. The new printer comes with an optional battery and a warranty of 1 year or 13,000 prints (whichever comes first).
Epson entered the instant photo printing market a decade ago with PictureMate PM100, which was mainly targeted towards home/personal use. The product quickly became popular amongst small photo studios and tourist photographers. The acceptance was understandable given that printing of passport photos and colour photos were not done in-house by the photo studios but were instead done in labs and then sent back to the photo studios
