Kodak says the EasyShare 5300 AIO cuts the cost of printing photographs at home by up to 50% – from an average of 45 cents a photo for comparable home inkjet printers, to just 17.9 cents for the Kodak EasyShare 5300 AIO.
And the price savings for documents are similar – ink costs fall from 10.4 cents to 3.9 cents a page for black text documents, and from 22.5 cents to 12.5 cents for colour graphics and text documents.
The new EasyShare 5300 AIO uses some innovative technology and new pigmented inks that make it easy to print, scan and copy with reduced costs.
This new Kodak printer will be in New Zealand stores this month.
“Kodak has been printing photos for more than 100 years,” says Kodak’s David Santer, Inkjet Systems Product Manager in Australia and New Zealand. “Now we have applied our expertise in consumer electronics and our history of commercial inkjet printing to design affordable products for people at home.”
The Kodak EasyShare 5300 AIO can print, scan and copy, plus read most memory card types. It can also be used with an optional Bluetooth wireless accessory and users can easily view and edit pictures with a high-resolution colour LCD display.
Other key features of the new EasyShare 5300 AIO system include speeds of up up to 32 pages a minute in black and 22 pages a minute in colour, pigment-based inks in a two-cartridge, six-ink system and PC-free photo printing from most memory cards, USB drives, PICTBRIDGE-enabled cameras and frames.
The new EasyShare 5300 AIO printer and inks will be available in shops from December 2007, and will be sold through Kodak Express Stores nationally.
