Olympus P-200
Mobile Digital Photo Printer
by Rick Smith (November 18, 2000)


Ok, youíve taken some digital pictures and someone wants a print of one of your pictures. Now what? Ok, you can exchange cards or E-mail addresses and you can send them the picture, if you remember, but then they have to print the picture. There are also a number of Photo websites that will gladly print your pictures as well, but you need to upload the pictures to them. Why canít this be simple, just like using an old Polaroid Land camera or an SX-70?

Well, Olympus has a solution - the Camedia P-200 Mobile Digital Photo Printer. This portable, battery operated printer can print a 3x4 print in only 90 seconds. In addition to printing a single picture, it can print 2, 4, 9, or 16 images per print and can even produce a 40 image index print. Not enough? Well, thereís a three-step sharpness control, the ability to crop images along with the ability to add the time and date to prints. At a party and lots of people want copies? The copy function lets you produce up to 25 prints at one time.

Weighing only 30 ounces, The Olympus P-200 can be easily carried in a camera gadget bag and the batteries last for 50 prints between recharges. $599 - available now.

The Camedia P-200 Mobile Digital Photo Printer also:

  • uses Dye Sublimation technology to produce continuous tone images at 320 dots per inch resolution in over two million colors (128 gradation levels per color)

  • employs a 4-pass printing technology, one each color (Cyan, Magenta and Yellow), plus a UV overcoat layer to seal and protect the image.

  • can be used for test prints at on-location shoots, real estate, travel, insurance, law enforcement and accident scenes.

  • is compatible with both SmartMedia and Type I or II CompactFlash cards - just put the media in the proper slot and go

  • is compatible with Digital Print Order Form (DPOF) technology for image scheduling and number setting, as well as DCF, JPEG and TIFF file formats.

  • has a 25-sheet paper cassette with a matching 25-print ribbon capacity and is $24.95 per cassette (25 sheets with ribbon).

    In case you want a digital camera with a Polaroid film output, look at the Olympus C-211 digital camera.
