Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is colour depth mean on a photo printer?
AColour Depth is a measurement of how many colours the printer can produce - a higher colour depth means a greater visual fidelity between the print and the original photo.
QWhat is Pictbridge?
APictbridge - or Direct Printing - is a system to allow users to print photos directly from their camera or phone, without having to connect to a computer first. This can either be done using a cable or wifi.
QWhat is Z-INK?
AZ-INK - or 'Zero Ink' - is a photo printing method that doesn't require a normal print cartridge to work. Instead it uses special paper that reacts to heat, giving different colours at different temperatures. This 'inkless' printing makes ZINK printers perfect for instant cameras and portable printers.
