Stylus Photo R800 Features:
The Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss ink set is designed specifically for photographers and digital artists. This ink set includes eight individual cartridges and features the new Gloss Optimizer as well as Photo Black and Matte Black ink cartridges. With an eight channel print head, the EPSON Stylus Photo R800 allows the user to keep the Photo Black and Matte Black ink cartridges in the printer at all times and the printer driver determines which black ink to use based on the paper type selected.
In addition to the
traditional cyan, magenta and yellow inks, the Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss ink set also
includes new red and blue inks to create a Hi-Fi ink set that expands the color gamut.
The color gamut for the Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss ink on glossy paper is up to 22%
larger than ink jet printers with standard cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink sets.
The printer "knows" which ink cartridges are in the printer and exactly
how much ink is left in them. There are tiny little electronic chips on the edge of
each ink tank. This allows you to swap any cartridge at any time and then put it back
in the printer later. These IntellidgeTM cartridges
actually count each ink droplet used to keep track of the ink remaining.
Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh platforms, the Stylus R800 features both a
high-speed IEEE1394 FireWire and a USB 2.0 input port for connection to the
Here's the roll paper holders mounted on the back of the printer. It can handle
4" or 8.3" width roll paper stock for edge-to-edge borderless printing. Good for
continuous 4x6" prints or 8.3 x 24" panoramas.
