Designed to fit almost anywhere and easily transportable, the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system has a compact body, small footprint and weighs only 24 pounds.
Graphical User Interface (GUI)
With the user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI), it's easy to use and operate the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system. Simply insert digital media and touch the buttons on the LCD panel to edit and print images.
Adjustable Touch-Sensitive Color LCD Panel
Tilt the angle of the 8" LCD panel2 to operate the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system from a variety of viewing positions. With the panel's touch-sensitive capability, you can edit photos, add borders and insert text on-location without the use of a PC.
Although you can use the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system without a PC, you can also edit digital images on your computer and transfer them to the SnapLab system via the supplied printer driver (supports Microsoft® Windows 2000, XP Home Edition and XP Professional).
For protection against theft, the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system comes equipped with a security slot for attaching a security cable3.
Effortless Media Replacement
Replacing paper and ribbon is very simple and doesn't require chemicals or any special skills.
The Sony SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system accepts a wide variety of digital media including Memory Stick® media, Memory Stick Duo™ media, Memory Stick PRO™ media, Memory Stick Pro Duo™ media, Secure Digital (SD) card, Multi Media card, Smart Media card, xD-Picture card, and CompactFlash® (CF) card, and microdrives.
Dye Sublimation Technology
For photo-lab-quality digital prints, the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system features Sony's dye sublimation technology. Instead of printing dots of ink, dye sublimation printers lay down colors in continuous tones one color at a time. The result is crisp, vibrant images with natural, continuous tones.
High Speed Printing
Share photos instantly. A newly developed thermal print mechanism enables the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system to operate at high speeds, regardless of print size. In just seconds you can create borderless prints and index prints in multiple sizes. Print a 3.5" x 5" photograph in 13 seconds, a 4" x 6" photograph in 16 seconds and a 5" x 7" photograph in 17 seconds1. The SnapLab system also features a fast 10-second startup time, so you can power on and start printing images right away.
Image Editing Tools
With the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system, you have a complete set of editing tools to enhance and customize your photographs. Zoom, crop and rotate the focus on a subject. Eliminate unwanted background and rotate the image. Adjust the color for maximum vibrancy. Reduce unwanted red-eye. Transform color pictures into black and white or sepia-toned images.
Add Borders and Text
Overlay your company logos, event names, or custom-designed borders onto your digital images4. It's easy to create cards for events and announcements. Easily identify an event or personalize a photograph by placing messages and captions on images and borders5.
Add value to each print and create anything from ID cards to novelty products using 30 built-in templates within the SnapLab system.
Easily keep track of orders. Using Sony's original pattern lamination technology, you can print numbers on the front of the photograph that are only visible when the print is tilted. By printing order numbers on each photo, prints can be sorted by job for smooth distribution. In addition, a print log can be viewed on the LCD panel and exported to a CompactFlash® card or microdrive in "CSV" format for use as a Microsoft® Excel file on your computer.
Image Data Spooling
After requesting a print order, the SnapLab Digital Photo-finishing system spools the image data to be printed6. Remove the memory card and continue to take more photographs while the job is printing.
Screensaver images can be customized by preloading data. The screen can display various images such as a company logo or a special promotion when the printer is not printing digital photos.
