Epson is touting its new Stylus Photo R2880 printer as one worthy of creating “exhibition” quality prints for professional and fine art photographers. This printer prices at around $800.
The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 offers something called UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta ink technology to produce a wider color gamut, reportedly thereby dramatically improving color quality. Another built-in technology is called Radiance and it “smoothes color transitions and optimizes highlight and shadow detail.”
Other features of the R2880 include a “professional” print head, media flexibility for various print sizes and direct CD printing. This printer will be available in June.
