Epson has unveiled its new SureColor P5360 17-inch professional photo printer to meet the “demanding needs of professional and production photography markets.” It is considered a major upgrade and is the successor to the established SureColor P5070.
This latest offering aims to give photographers the ability to produce the best exhibition quality prints using an advanced printing system. The SureColor P5360 features an improved printhead, a new ink set with an extended color gamut in dark blue tones, and an advanced print engine for better productivity, capable of higher resolution up to 5760 x 1440 dpi and including sheet and roll capability.
Featuring an advanced design, the SureColor P5360 combines an improved, advanced Micro Piezo printhead with Epson’s Variable Sized Droplet Technology (VSDT). This combination produces prints with smooth tonal transitions, effectively reproducing intricate details photographed by today’s high-resolution cameras.
The printer features a new 10-colour UltraChrome PRO10 ink set in high capacity 200ml cartridges, priced at a suggested retail price of AUD$169 and NZD$189, including tax, including violet ink, suitable for an extended spectrum of blue tones . With dedicated channels for photo and matte black ink, the printer eliminates the need to change inks, saving time and reducing ink waste.
This new printer features a built-in Carbon Black mode, which significantly improves Dmax and produces richer blacks and exceptional contrast on glossy paper. Offering flexibility and increased productivity, the SureColor P5360 is integrated with a built-in roll feed, an automatic cutter and a high-capacity cassette that can hold up to 100 cut sheets, ranging in size from 8″ x 10″ (203 x 254 mm) to A2+ (432x610mm).
To further support today’s workflows that use both Epson and third-party media, the SureColor P5360 comes with the Epson Media Installer. This software application aims to help users control the parameters for successful printing on various media, including heavy art paper.
In response to market needs and customer feedback, Epson has committed to integrating the latest printhead and ink technologies, optimized for photography, into this new printer. This allows professional photographers to maximize productivity and reliability and produce the best exhibition-quality prints.
A remarkable evolution of the critically acclaimed SureColor P5070, the SureColor P5360 features improved reliability, deeper black density and a wider color gamut in blue tones. Additional features include intuitive operation with a new large 4.3-inch color LCD touchscreen and an interface for easy installation, operation and maintenance.
Extensive connectivity options include Ethernet USB and now Wi-Fi connectivity. Advanced software support for improved productivity includes Epson Cloud Solution PORT1 for fleet management and Epson Print Layout software for easy print production.
The SureColor P5360 is expected to be available in Australia from December 2023. The Australian price tag is AUD $3,495.00 (including tax), while in New Zealand it stands at NZD $3,895 (including tax), which maintains the same price level as its predecessor, the SureColor P5070.
