Sony Picture Station DPPFP55 Reviews
PCmag reviews the Sony Picture Station DPPFP55 and writes;
“The DPP-FP55′s balance of printing speed, photo quality, price, and cost per photo make it a reasonably good choice at a reasonable price, particularly if your camera uses one of the few memory card formats it can read. And unless you need some feature it doesn’t offer—such as a battery—it’s well worth considering, especially if you’re a sucker for speed.”
Goodgearguide reviews the Sony Picture Station DPPFP55 and writes;
“The DPP-FP55 also has a built-in image editing system. It doesn’t allow for a wide range of options but it will give users a chance to make minor tweaks before they commit to printing. Brightness, contrast and tint corrections can be made and filters such as sepia, monochrome or red-eye can be applied. The image can also be rotated or moved and there is even an option to reduce red-eye. While this is a far cry from powerful image editing software, it certainly does the job it sets out to do and does it simply and intuitively.”
Sony Picture Station DPPFP55 User Reviews
“I read many reviews for this item and a lot mentioned prints in about 57 seconds but when I received my own I was more then happy with the 40 Sec prints and great quality of the photos.” – by B. Pulice
“I actually received this printer as a gift and was hesitant because I thought the paper and ink refils would be expensive. But they weren’t at all. The printer itself is pretty compact and very easy to use. It’s great that it has the memory card slot and you don’t need to hook it up to your computer. the printing quality is great and I have no complaints. Highly recommended!” – by Papi & Chachi
Great Photo Printer
“I have used a lot of printers to print photos. This is by far the best ever. It doesn’t require ink cartridges so no more drying out issues. It uses a ribbon and the print quality is incredible. Also, the picture stock and ribbon come together in a set when you buy them. There is enough ribbon to print all of the picture cards in each set. GREAT PRODUCT!!!” – by Anita Miller
Great little piece of equipment
“The printer is very intuitive and easy to use. Just plug it in, insert your ink cassette, paper, and your SD memory card, select your picture and you are ready to print. If you want to print through your computer, just plug in the USB cable and you can print through the computer. The print quality is superb and looks just like a picture you would get from any store.” – by Jay Kay
