If you love to play with your digital camera but also need a serious printer that can get your office reports looking great, consider this Epson all-in-one. Based on the engines of the popular Epson Stylus Photo R300 printer and the Epson Perfection 2400 scanner, the Stylus Photo RX500 adds standalone copying (no PC required) and saves valuable desk space compared to separate components. It is both versatile and reliable, enabling you to scan photos, text, or negatives; to make copies; and to print anything from borderless 4-by-6-inch photos to business envelopes.
The flatbed scanner offers 2,400 dpi optical (9,600 dpi interpolated) resolution and 48-bit color to bring your scanned images rich detail and crisply defined color separation. Archive your family photos, save your favorite articles on your hard drive, or assemble a slide show. You can also save your scans directly to a compatible memory card, even without a PC.
Instant copies can be created in four different resolutions--top speed for black copies is 10 copies per minute. When printing from your system, the RX500 produces black documents in draft mode up to 17 ppm, 16 ppm for color. Take your time and seek perfection with the optimized 5,760 x 1,440 dpi mode, for beautifully sharp photos. In a faster mode, borderless 4-by-6-inch prints appear in as little as 37 seconds. Insert your digital camera's compatible memory card and print your evening's shots while bypassing your system. Just use the photo proof sheet mode to select only images you need.
Consumable costs are low, thanks to six separate high-yield ink tanks--you can expect up to 630 pages from the black cartridge and 430 pages from the color cartridges, based on 5% page coverage. The modern silver and black casing adds a sleek touch to your office space, while the included USB cable couldn't be more convenient. Epson provides a one-year warranty covering parts and service; Epson Exchange service is included.

Epson's R-D1 digital camera harkens back to the classic rangefinder cameras of old. A rangefinder is a type of camera that has a built-in device for measuring distance based on the principles of triangulation. Built in collaboration with Cosina, known worldwide for its optical technologies, the classically styled R-D1 offers a 6.1 megapixel resolution, support for over 200 vintage and contemporary L/M-mount lenses, 2-inch flip-out LCD monitor, hot shoe for external flash, and a 1.x viewfinder that provides automatic parallax correction.
The R-D1's 6.1-megapixel APS-C sized CCD (23.7mm x 15.6mm) captures images in two sizes: 3008 x 2000 and 2240 x 1488. It records images to either JPEG or 12-bit CCD-RAW. It features aperture priority and manual exposure modes, a shutter speed range of 1 to 1/2000 seconds, and exposure compensation of +/- 2.0 EV in 0.3 EV steps.
The R-D1 uses the world's first 1x viewfinder, enabling you to view scenes--including panoramas--through the camera as if they were looking at scenes using their naked eyes. The camera also has the advantage of improved focus precision compared to low magnification optical finders. The 2-inch flip-out-and-twist LCD has a 235K pixel resolution and features buttons for the camera's digital controls.
Other features include:
- White balance settings: auto, sunlight, clouds, shade, incandescent, and fluorescent
- Histogram display
- Needle display module using four needles (image quality setting, white balance setting, frames remaining, battery level)
- Compatibility with Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards
The R-D1 is powered by a proprietary rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. It measures 5.59 x 3.48 x 1.56 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 1.24 pounds without battery and memory card.
The rangefinder type camera has been used by many of the world's greatest photographers, from photo journalists to professional portrait photographers. In keeping with that unique heritage, Epson designed the Epson R-D1 to offer all the creative possibilities of digital technology, while maintaining the precision engineering of a traditional rangefinder camera. The camera is focused by superimposing two slightly different views of a scene with the rangefinder. In general, compared to an auto-focus system, performance does not change even if lenses are swapped, and focus can be achieved quickly, accurately and with a light level that is nearly the same as the unaided eye, even in dimly lit locations. In addition, since the field of view is not blocked by the action of a shutter as it is with a single-lens reflex camera, you won't miss an important photographic moment.
