Epson Stylus Photo R3000
Professional image quality in a 13-inch printer
The Epson Stylus Photo R3000 is a cost-effective printer that's poised to be your go-to printer for jobs that don't require large output. This 13-inch inkjet printer has Epson's award-winning UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta ink set consisting of cyan, light cyan, vivid magenta, vivid light magenta, yellow, light black, light light black and photo black or matte black. The printer holds all nine 25.9ml ink cartridges and automatically switches between photo black and matte black based on the paper being used. The R3000 can print on cut sheets from 3.5x5 to 13x19 inches, as well as 13-inch rolls, with a maximum print size of 13x19 inches (border-free) on cut paper and 13x44 inches on rolls. The R3000 is the first 13-inch printer with Advanced Media Handling. It combines three paths for the most wide-ranging media support ever in a photo printer. The new front media path is front-in, front-out, and enables consistent, reliable feeding of fine-art papers, canvas, thick media, CD/DVDs and Epson professional-quality photographic papers. Additionally, the roll-paper capability enables panorama printing up to 44 inches long, while the auto sheet feeder holds up to 30 sheets of photographic paper.
Inkset, Printhead And Black-And-White Technology
Epson's AccuPhoto HD2 image technology delivers precise placement of each individual ink droplet for consistently excellent color, tonal scale and details. The high-performance Advanced MicroPiezo AMC (Active Meniscus Control) printhead controls the curvature of each droplet within each nozzle before producing variable-sized droplets as small as 2 picoliters for print resolutions as high as 5760x1440. The Advanced Black-and-White Mode represents the standard for producing exhibition-quality neutral and toned black-and-white prints. The results to date are some of the world's most recognized black-and-white gallery prints.
In addition to its full complement of professional-level features and technologies, the Epson Stylus Photo R3000 is equipped with Hi-Speed USB 2.0, Ethernet and Wireless 80.211n for the ultimate in flexibility.
