Epson has just announced that the successor to the popular SureLab Minilab D700 will be hitting retail outlets in July 2019. The Epson Surelab D870 Minilab will be capable of producing vast quantities of prints in a very short amount of time, which will no doubt be music to the ears of those in the business of small-format photo production. Join us after the break for a more detailed look at specifications and pricing for the Epson Surelab D870 Minilab photo printer.
If you need a photo printer that is capable or producing a few hundred images per hour, the Epson SureLab D870 Minilab could be the printer you have been looking for. The Surelab D870 is capable of producing 430 4 x 6 prints, 275 5 x 7 prints, or 140 8 x 10 prints per hour. The printer is capable of printing on paper with many different types of finishes (matte, glossy, luster) in border-free, panoramic, and square format. The maximum print size tops out at a respectable 8 x 20 which isn’t too shabby for a printer with a relatively small footprint, and the maximum print resolution is 1440 x 720 dpi.
The new media manager, quick print feature, and the fact that this new printer uses UltraChrome D6r-S dye-based ink should mean that the Epson SureLab D870 is more than capable enough for even the most demanding photographers. The six color UltraChrome ink has a wide color gamut that can produce true to life colors that are smudge, water, and fade resistant. The image processing and screening technology promise that users will be able to see smooth gradations, accurate skin tones, and sharp photos with every single print.
According to Epson, the Surelab D870 Minilab is easy to set up and use, and it allows users to print directly from both photo printing applications and kiosk systems. This printer sounds like it will be perfect for photographers who like to set up labs, and kiosks at events and receptions.
The Epson D870 Minilab will be available at all approved Epson re-sellers in July of this year, and will carry a retail price of $2,495. If you would like more information about the printer and its specifications you can visit Epson’s official website.
