Kodak DX6490 Review
EasyShare 6000 Printer Dock
The EasyShare 6000 Printer Dock works with all Kodak EasyShare CX/DX 6000 and LS 600 series cameras. It can be used with or without a computer. It's small, lightweight and very portable.
A thermal printhead uses heat to transfer ink dyes from a mylar sheet and fuses them in
the paper. This is a subtractive color process, the color dyes are transparent and can be
placed on top of each other to create up to 16 million colors and produces a picture the
equal of conventional photo prints.
Using the controls you can print the current picture (default), print the pictures that have been preselected using the Share button, print all, or print an index sheet. The "-" and "+" buttons lets you scroll through the pictures stored in the camera and print whatever is shown on the LCD.
The indicators across the top warn if the paper is out, show the level of charge in
the camera battery and tell you when it is time to replace the ribbon cartridge.
The print packs contain the ribbon cartridge and two packs of printing paper with 20
sheets in each pack. The ribbon is good for all 40 prints, breaking the paper down
into two packages helps keep it fresher.
The street price is $24.99 so the "per print"
cost is approximately $0.62 each.
To make a "perfect" 4x6-inch borderless print you use the camera's Best (3:2) quality mode. The 3:2 aspect ratio yields an image that fits perfectly on the 4x6-inch paper with no cropping required, your entire image is printed. The white borders you see on this print are break-away tabs that you remove after the print is finished.
When printing images captured with the other quality settings some cropping will occur.
