Inkjet printers

    connect the printer straight to your digital camera, so you can print pictures without using a computer. To use this technology your digital camera must also be PictBridge compatible.
  • Replacement ink cartridges are simple to install when needed.
  • As a single function printer it has a lower carbon footprint than all-in- one printers.

All-in-One printers (printer, scanner, copier)
