“The introduction of the Stylus Photo R800 is changing the face of photo printing,” said Debbie Jones, EPSON Europe's Product Manager. “For the first time, professional and amateur photographers can produce print quality previously only achieved through traditional silver halide processes or high cost professional printers. In addition, the benefits of digital photography mean that photographers can now have total control – from capture through to final print – and reprints and enlargements can be achieved at the click of a “print” button. The introduction of UltraChrome Hi-Gloss pigment ink into the photo inkjet market sets a standard that other manufacturers will aspire to match.”
