Epson PictureMate - Photo Printer

 

Digital photos are great, but you still want prints for albums and frames. The Epson PictureMate provides simple digital photo printing, without the scary running costs.

I have no doubt that the 10 x 15cm printer market is going to become incredibly competitive over the next 12 months. That should work out nicely for the consumer, but right now, the Epson PictureMate is already a very accomplished product that let's...

The photographic industry has been banging its head against a brick wall since digital photography reared its head in 1995 when Casio launched the first consumer digital camera. How to ensure the mass market consumer prints digital pictures with ease....

The PictureMate certainly won't take up much space in the house, it's very easy to use and picture quality is good. The estimated price of 29p per print makes it affordable and inline with the high street printers but sending away can get you a print...

Epson Picturemate

 

Some obvious competitors to the Epson PictureMate include the £100 HP Photosmart 145, £150 HP PHotosmart 245, £170 HiTi 630PS, £140 Canon CP-220, Olympus P10 Photo printer, £200 Sony DPP-EX50 and the £180 SanyoDVP-P1EX. While the Epson and HP models...

It's easy to nitpick the Epson PictureMate ¨C but this would mostly be to miss the point. The PictureMate has a very clear raison d'¨ºtre ¨C to print long lasting 6x4 photos as conveniently as possible and at an affordable price. It fulfils its purpose...

Epson PictureMate PM270

 

Epson's answer to the SELPHY ES2, the PictureMate PM270 is a dedicated photo printer targeted at amateur photographers and families on the go. The PM2...

Fairly portable, large LCD screen, impressive quality printing

Slightly bulky, expensive, battery isn't bundled

Although it isn’t the most stylish printer out there, the PM270 prints fairly fast and produces decent quality. It won't fit in your backpacking luggage, but for the average family photographer, the PM270 is portable enough to take away on holidays.

The Epson PictureMate's design suggests portability and recreation: it has a handle and looks like a small silver-and-black boombox. Despite its size ...

Printed photos look great, menu navigation is easy

Prints slower than competitors

Review: Epson PictureMate Charm

 

Along with your lunch, you might want to consider bringing Epson's lunch pail-style photo printer, the PictureMate Charm, the next time you decide to work...

Fully charged battery can print up to 100 photos. Estimated 200-year print life when photos are stored in an album. Relatively low 25-cent cost per print

Can’t print from USB flash drives. Needs pricey battery and bag to be truly “portable.” Can only print up to 4×6-inch size

The PictureMate delivers great print quality and is fun to operate, but it prints onto only one size of paper and can't run on batteries.
