Sanyo DVP-P1

Sanyo has released a DVP-P1 Digital Photo Printer. According to the company, the DVP-P1 gives the user freedom to print without need for a PC and complicated software. It incorporates PictBridge as the primary connectivity protocol for enabling direct printing (without a PC) from digital cameras of other brands and manufacturers. This makes printing possible from all digital cameras that support PictBridge via a simple USB cable connection. The DVP-P1 also has two memory card slots. One that accepts CF type I/II format cards and a 3-in-1 slot that accepts several kinds of digital camera media. This universal compatibility allows the printer to accept SD, Compact Flash, Smart Media and Memory stick media cards. The DVP-P1 has a maximum image capability of 12 million pixels (Max 10 million for tiff), so it will support all digital camera formats - creating incredible detail and colour. The DVP-P1 also uses a removable dye-sublimation thermal transfer cartridge to produce high-speed rich colours, the company said. A distribution deal is also in the works. RRP: $329
