Manufacturer’s Description

Bigger just got better. The i9900 Photo Printer is a high-end large format machine whose remarkable output can rival that of a professional processing lab. It's capable of producing edge-to-edge true borderless prints, from 4 x 6 up to a breathtaking 13 x 19 size, with the look and feel of a traditional photograph. Think of it: you can take a digital picture, set your printing parameters and be holding an amazing 13 x 19 poster-size borderless print in about 3 minutes. For true printing freedom you can even connect a Bubble Jet Direct or PictBridge-compatible digital camera or DV camcorder to the i9900 printer's conveniently located Direct Print Port and print photos without a computer.
