Gadgets & Gizmos

SOME PHOTOGRAPHY MAGAZINES specialise in technique and creativity, others focus on the wonderful equipment and materials we get to use and it’s from this latter group that the TIPA awards are made. And in 2018, the Best Photo Printer was the Epson Expression Photo HD XP-15000.

The TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) awards draw upon a global panel of knowledgeable experts who are exposed to a wide range of products. This year’s awards were selected by representatives from 29 professional, amateur, and business magazines from Asia, Australia, Europe and North and South America, with a delegate from the Camera Journal Press Club in Japan.

As such, winning the 2018 award means that Epson has now received a total of 39 awards from TIPA for technologies and imaging products, including inkjet printers, inks, scanners and projectors, since 1997.

TIPA provided the following citation: “The Epson Expression Photo HD XP-15000 weighs a relatively lightweight 8.5 kg and, in printing mode, takes up only 476x785x412 mm (18.7x30.9x16.2 inches) of space. This 6-colour printer, including grey ink for enhanced black and white prints, offers variable droplet size as small as 1.5 picolitres and can deliver up to 5760 x 1440 max resolution in print sizes up to 13x19 inches (A3+). It can also handle specialty media, including card stock, via a 50-sheet rear tray, plus 2-sided printing. It offers easy set-up via a 2.4” colour LCD and features wireless connectivity, allowing users to print from their smartphone and tablet.”

The Epson Expression Photo HD XP-15000 Wide-Format Printer is available from for an RRP of $499 and through major Epson retailers and resellers across Australia.
