Epson has unveiled two new additions to its PictureMate range of compact photo printers in the form of its PictureMate PM range of ‘home photo labs’.

The PictureMate PM 280 and PM 240 printers are designed primarily to let users quickly and easily print 10 x15cm (4 x 6-inch) photos at home, rather than using photo kiosks or traditional photo shops.

Both printers are designed with standalone operations in mind, meaning users needn’t connect these devices to their computer.

Speed-wise, Epson claims photo print speeds of up to 42 seconds per snap, whilst the PictureMate PM 280 also features an internal CD drive, which allows users to print directly from a CD or save images from a digital memory card onto a CD. Connectivity-wise, both releases can also handle direct printing from digital camera memory cards, via USB Direct Print, PictBridge and through the use of optional Bluetooth adapters.

“Both the PictureMate PM 280 and PM 240 are loaded with a host of user-friendly features that make it extremely easy to take high quality photo prints from the comfort of one's home,” explained Epson Middle East’s general manager, Khalil El-Dalu.

Interested users should expect to pay approximately US $279 for the CD drive-enabled PM 280 and around $185 for the PM 240.
