Product Description

The Epson Stylus Photo RX610 — the ideal all–in–one solution for printing, scanning and copying. Incorporating a range of Epson's advanced technologies; the Stylus Photo RX610 delivers brilliant results at every level and for every user.

Claria Photographic Ink — for Ultra High–Definition Prints

When it comes to high quality printing, Epson's Claria Photographic Ink is simply remarkable. Formulated by Epson scientists specifically for exceptional photo and document printing results, Claria Photographic Ink is a perfect match for the range of genuine Epson photo papers and plain paper.

Colour

As a result of its dye–based formulation, Claria Photographic Ink has exceptional light reflection characteristics, ensuring prints have vibrancy colour range and quality that is superior to those produced by photo labs.

Durability

Photos are keepsakes, and Claria Photographic Ink affords prints which are highly resistant to the damaging effects of light and ozone gases. Printed on specialty Epson photographic papers, Claria photo prints will last up to 200 years when stored in an album.

Clarity

One of the key features of Claria Photographic Ink is an incredibly fast drying time. Along with the fact that this means your photos can be handled almost as soon as they're printed, it eliminates the blurring effect that can occur with slow–drying inks where droplets actually blend into each other.

High–speed printing

With print speeds of up to 38 pages per minute*, the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 gets the job done fast without any compromise on quality. The ability to achieve this is the result of a combination of technologies that have been continually refined over the years, giving Epson printer users the speed and quality they demand.

LCD viewer, PictBridge and Memory Card support

For absolute photo printing flexibility, the Epson Stylus Photo RX610 features a PictBridge port to enable direct printing from digital PictBridge–enabled still cameras. It also supports a wide range of memory cards used in digital still cameras and mobile phones.

Supported Memory Cards

CompactFlash / Memory Stick / Memory Stick PRO / Memory Stick Duo* / Memory Stick PRO Duo* / Memory Stick Micro* / MagicGate Memory Stick / MagicGate Memory Stick Duo* / Microdrive / SDHC Memory Card / SD Memory Card / MultiMediaCard / miniSDHC Memory Card* / miniSD card* / micro SDHC card* / micro SD card* / xD–Picture Card / xD Picture Card Type M / xD Picture Card Type H

2.5–inch Photo Fine LCD screen

Epson has long been a world leader in the development and production of LCD screens; and this leadership is brought to the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 in the form of an in–built 2.5–inch high resolution LCD screen. Used for displaying easy–to–read menus, configuration setups, image thumbnails and photograph previews, the LCD screen turns the Epson Stylus Photo RX610 into a pc–free and powerful photo previewing, management and printing solution.

BorderFree Prints

Simply by selecting the BorderFree option from the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610's printing menu, photos are printed right to all four edges of the paper on 4"x6", 5"x7" and A4 sizes. It's yet one more feature of the Epson Stylus Photo RX610 that demonstrates Epson's commitment to provide users with an easy–to–use and inexpensive alternative to photo labs–with superior results.

PC and Standalone Copying

Monochrome and Colour Copying

The Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 lets you forget about having to rely on expensive — and cumbersome — dedicated photocopy machines for monochrome and colour copying. With its PC–free capabilities and high–speed copying the Epson Stylus Photo RX610 is an ideal feature–packed copier for the home or small business.

Versatile Copy Modes

Whether copying a photo or document, it's easy to select from various settings to achieve the best result. Added to this is a repeat copy function and the ability to create a poster from a single image or photo by scanning the original and using the bundled copy software to split it into 4, 9 or 16 BorderFree A4 prints.

BorderFree Prints

Forget about the frustration of dealing with copies that have their edges cropped. Just as you can print documents and photos up to A4 size right to the edge of the paper, it's exactly the same with copying.

Now, rather than downsizing full A4 scans to meet any restrictive border limitations, the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 gives you professional edge–to–edge copying.

Powerful image and document management software

Included with your new Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 is a range of bundled software that empowers you with comprehensive and easy–to–use scanning, editing and management capabilities.

Epson Creativity Suite 1.3

Taking centre stage with your Epson Stylus Photo RX610 bundled software is Epson Creativity Suite 1.3, a single–interface application for managing images, files and documents. Featuring a simplified user interface, the management of image files is more straightforward and streamlined than ever before. Epson Creativity Suite includes main hub, Epson File Manager, with an Explorer–type interface for viewing image thumbnails, categorising and editing images. Creativity Suite also includes Epson Scan Assistant and Epson Scan Attach to Email.

Epson Scan Assistant includes:

Scan to Web: Allows you to take full advantage of one–point scanning and upload of photographs to your own secure photo albums on the Epson PhotoStation Web site. Businesses can utilise this by providing on–line access to images and scanned documents for business partners and customers.

Photo Print: It's like your own photograph duplication lab, but right on your desktop and fully under your control. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can scan and print multiple copies of high quality photographs in a single operation.

Scan to PC: With support for the leading industry standard image file formats, the Scan to File feature gives you the ability to scan and save photographs and images in the file format best suited for your needs and application.

Scan to E–mail: The perfect solution for ensuring documents and photographs can be sent and received when and where they're needed by using the power of e–mail. Whether you're sending important documents or family photographs, the Scan to E–mail feature of the Epson Smart Panel provides a simple, single–tool interface for rapid scanning and sending.

Copy to PDF: This is a newly added feature to Epson's Scan Assistant Software. With this functionality you can scan document or photo and save it as a PDF document.

Save to Memory Card: Allows you to scan and save photos, documents or films directly to a compatible memory card.

High resolution and accurate colour

With an advanced micro–step drive and class–leading scanning resolutions of up to 1200 x 2400 dpi, the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 captures the finest of details and colour gradations in documents, and photos.

Epson Micro Piezo Print Head 

At the heart of every Epson inkjet printer is a technology that sets it well ahead of the competition – a Micro Piezo print head. It's exactly the same technology that many of the world's leading photographers, designers and signmakers use every day to achieve prints that are the world's best.

Instead of using a system that quite literally boils the ink to fire off ink droplets, the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610's Micro Piezo print head technology takes full advantage of high–precision microelectronics to create perfectly spherical ink droplets at sizes as small as 1.5pl–so they are at the very limit of human vision.

Print direct to CD and DVD surfaces

We live in a digital age; and creating your own CDs and DVDs for home movies, music and photographs is commonplace. The Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610's, printing versatility encompasses printing direct onto the surface of compatible inkjet printable 8 and 12cm CDs and DVDs.

By taking advantage of the precision technologies inherent in the printer, the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 can be used to create CDs and DVDs that have a personal and professional touch. And helping you get the best possible results is the bundled Epson Print software, which guides you step–by–step through the design and printing process. You can even scan direct from an existing CD and print to the surface of a CD or DVD placed in the printing tray.

Ready out–of–the–box

When you open the box of the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610, everything you need to start printing documents and photographs is right there, packed, of course, in environmentally friendly recyclable packing materials. Along with a power cable, the Epson Stylus Photo RX610 comes complete with a USB cable. To help you really make the most of your Epson Stylus Photo RX610's brilliant printing capabilities, a range of easy–to–use software titles are included, such as Epson Creativity Suite, to help manage, print and share photos and documents.

PhotoEnhance—the photographic expert inside your printer

Epson PhotoEnhance analyses image data and, where necessary, adjusts printer settings to optimise photo print output. This new technology makes light work of correcting images that have been backlit, over–exposed or suffer from poor colouring.

The analysis of image data also provides Epson PhotoEnhance with the vital information it needs to adjust skin tones, scenery and landscapes. To use Epson PhotoEnhance, simply select it in the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 printer driver. It's like have a photo printing expert inside the printer to add a professional touch.

High Quality Scanning

Scanning to Memory Card

Adding even more to the PC–free versatility of the Epson Epson Stylus Photo RX610 is the ability of its 1200dpi scanner to scan documents and photos directly to a memory card inserted in one of the memory card slots. The LCD viewer then gives you the ability to preview all the images and save only those you select.
