8/19/2004 11:55:00 AM Eastern

San Diego — Sony expanded its PictureStation dye sublimation photo printer lineup today, with the addition of the DPP-FP30.

The unit, shipping in October, can print photos while connected to a PC and is PictBridge compatible for direct printing via a USB cable with other PictBridge-enabled digital cameras. It does not feature slots for flash memory cards.

The printer will bundle with a 40-sheet print pack and retail for an estimated $150. It prints in two sizes: 3-inch by 5-inch and 4-inch by 6-inch. It can produce a borderless 4-inch by 6-inch photo in 90 seconds when printing from a PC and roughly two minutes when printing directly from a PictBridge camera via USB.

The DPP-FP30 seals each photo it prints with Sony’s SuperCoat 2 laminate for resistance to spills, moisture and fingerprints.

Sony will offer the following paper and ribbon print packs for the DPP-FP30: the SVM-F40L 40-sheet pack ($20) for printing borderless 3.5-inch by 5-inch prints; the SVM-F40P 40-sheet pack for 4-inch by 6-inch prints ($25); and the SVM-F80P, an 80-pack for 4-inch by 6-inch prints for $45.
