Nikon Digital Photo Printer Foregoes Need for PC Connection

Nikon Digital Photo Printer Foregoes Need for PC Connection

Nikon will begin selling in July a new digital photo printer that is designed to hook up directly to a digital camera rather than have data sent to it through a PC. The NP-100 has a PC card slot on its front to accept photo data. From there, the user can use a control panel to make A6 postcard-sized prints. Paper choices include standard and coated types (the latter resists fingerprints and other stains) and two types for making seals. The printer is set up to connect to Windows and Macintosh OS computers. Nikon expects to sell 10,000 units in the first year at a list price of 69,800 yen each.
