Sony loses the PC with new printer

Sony has ventured into PC-less photo printing with the announcement of the DPPEX5 digital photo printer. The printer uses dye sublimation technology to create lab-quality prints, officials said, and features a range of editing tools to adjust picture sharpness, contrast, brightness and size. Users can connect the device to a PC or Mac via a USB interface, but the printer also features a dedicated Memory Stick media slot so users can bypass the computer. Instead, users can connect the DPPEX5 to a television for PC-less editing, or for viewing shots. Sony also offers 6-inch by 4-inch print paper. A new paper will also be available this month for 3.5-inch by 5-inch borderless prints. Each print is laminated to seal and protect the photo. The DPPEX5 also comes bundled with a self-cleaning cartridge. The printer is available immediately and will retail for $599.
