Local distributor JA Davey has confirmed it will be shipping the DNP QW410, a new compact dye-sub printer with notably lower power consumption and much smaller size and weight than other commercial dye-subs on the market.
The DNP QW410 features a 4.5in print head, 5.9kg weight and dimensions of 20 x 19.6 x 24cm. It has 28 and 35 percent lower power consumption than DNP Photo’s DS-RX1HS and DS620A models. It’s ideal for event photographers, mobile photo booths and even for use at a retail instant print outlet.
It has a lay-flat printing function that reduces print curl, prints on both glossy and matte photo paper, and can print wirelessly from Android, iOS, Windows and macOS. It can print a 4×6-inch photo in 19 seconds. The new printer employs a proprietary 4.5-inch print head to allow consumers to now print 16:9 wide-ratio photos. This eliminates the need for cropping a wide format image down to a traditional 3:2 ratio (4×6” print).
Resolution is 300 dpi and print sizes range from 4×6 up to 4.5×8 inches.
For event photographers away from a power source can run the QW410 from an optional battery pack. Local pricing details and availability dates are to come.
