Kodak's 10 cents a photo printers are crap

Posted on Sunday, April 08 2007 @ 16:25:21 CEST by

Remember that announcement from Kodak about new printers which promised photos which would last for 100 years at an amazing cost of only 10 cents a piece?

Well, in their latest printer shooutout Pop Photo checked out one of these Kodak printers, the EasyShare 5300, and they found out it's crap:
The printer is fast, as is the scanner. But scanning quality was the lowest of all four, with a color accuracy rating on the upper edge of extremely high, and bothersome noise levels that were apparent in 4x6 prints that were scanned and enlarged to 8x10 inches. Scan resolution is also limited to just 1200 dpi according to Kodak, but even if it were higher scan artifacts and noise would interfere.

Overall, the 5300 came in at the bottom of the four in terms of image quality for both prints and scans. And while Kodak can actually claim dramatic saving in ink costs over the competition -- it does so by comparing apples and oranges -- or more accurately, draft quality prints to "lab quality" prints from other manufacturers.
