Review: Epson PictureMate Charm

 

Along with your lunch, you might want to consider bringing Epson's lunch pail-style photo printer, the PictureMate Charm, the next time you decide to work...

Fully charged battery can print up to 100 photos. Estimated 200-year print life when photos are stored in an album. Relatively low 25-cent cost per print

Can’t print from USB flash drives. Needs pricey battery and bag to be truly “portable.” Can only print up to 4×6-inch size

Epson PictureMate Show

 

The Epson PictureMate Show tests the waters for a combination dedicated photo printer and digital photo frame.

Fast. Low cost per photo. WVGA 7-inch color LCD. High-quality 4-by-6 output. Internal memory for storing photos.

Relatively big and heavy. Expensive.

Epson PictureMate

 

The PictureMate delivers great print quality and is fun to operate, but it prints onto only one size of paper and can't run on batteries.

Delivers great print quality

Prints on only one size of paper, Can't run on batteries

The PictureMate is a good fit if you want affordable, top-quality snapshots without fiddling with your camera.

Epson PictureMate

 

If you're looking for a way to print digital photos that's as easy as dropping off film at a 1-hour photo lab, the Epson PictureMate ($200 street) may have your name on it. The PictureMate is an ink jet–based dedicated photo printer that can compete...

Output is true photo quality, waterproof, smear-proof, and only 29 cents per print. Offers direct printing from cameras, memory cards, and CD, ZIP, and USB drives

Photo size limited to a maximum of 4 by 6 inches. No preview LCD

The Epson PictureMate is an ink jet–based dedicated photo printer limited to a maximum 4-by-6 photo size. But the photos look as good as anything you can get from film, and they cost only 29 cents each.

Epson Picturemate

 

The Epson PictureMate allows you to print 10x15 cms borderless photos at up to 5760 x 1440dpi-optimized dpi in the comfort of your own home. The Epson PictureMate uses a 6-colour high gloss pigment ink printing system and print life is claimed to be

Having said all that, the Jobo Giga Vu Pro is still a very nice product that should be commended for its photographer-friendly features and especially for its RAW file support for over 70 cameras, which easily beats the Epson P-2000's rather limited RAW s

Epson PictureMate Show Digital Frame Review

 

The Epson PictureMate Show is not just a printer, but also a digital picture frame, as well as a portable slideshow system that you can take with you. When it comes to photo printers, I haven't been personally blown away or even convinced enough to...

Excellent print quality. 7″ LCD display is bright and colorful. Slideshow section provides fun transitions and visualizations. Very easy to use and the remote control couldn't be any simpler and portable. Setup was very painless and the device will...

Would have liked the display to be a touchscreen. Device does not let you multitask while printing.  Printer a bit pricey for a designated photo printer, but like they say you get what you pay for

So ultimately you're paying more for the convenience of being able to print quality photos on the spot at home. Fortunately, the Epson PictureMate Show is an excellent compact photo printer that does print beautiful photos and the fact that it can do...
