Epson has just introduced a new 13-inch printer, the Stylus Photo R3000, for professional photographers and fine artists. The new printer utilizes Epson’s UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta ink technology and an advanced MicroPiezo AMC print head to produce exhibition quality prints on a wide variety of glossy, matte and fine art papers up to 13-inches wide using advanced media handling capabilities.
The R3000 also includes the AccuPhoto HD2 image technology to provide smoother color transitions and better highlight and shadow detail. The professional printer offers advanced black-and-white photo mode that lets users choose from one of four pre-set modes – neutral, warm, cool, or sepia for neutral or toned black-and-white prints. It also automatically switches between Photo and Matte black inks to produce the deepest blacks and richest color on glossy, matte or fine art media.
To be released in March 2011, the Epson Stylus Photo R3000 will be priced at $849.
