Both the Stylus Photo RX610 and Stylus Photo R290 use six colour Epson Claria photographic ink for high quality document printing and ultra high definition photos with richness, depth and clarity. Claria’s dye-based formulation boasts exceptional light reflection characteristics to ensure prints have superior colour vibrancy. When combined with genuine Epson photo paper the quality is superior to that of photo lab prints.
The Stylus Photo RX610 and Stylus Photo R290 have six individual Intellidge(TM) colour ink cartridges, so consumers replace only the ink cartridges that are used for cost effective printing.
With fast print speeds up to 38ppm, and borderless 4×6 inch photo printing in as little as 12 seconds, the Stylus Photo RX610 and Stylus Photo R290 are efficient and productive in both home or small office environments.

Both the Stylus Photo RX610 and Stylus Photo R290 feature Epson PhotoEnhance a utility that enables consumers to produce the optimum print every time by automatically adjusting the colour balance to allow for the different requirements of portraits, landscapes or groups.  In addition, both models also come with PortraitEnhance to detect faces in an   image and enhance face definition and skin radiance to ensure beautiful, natural skin tones.
The Stylus Photo RX610 is capable of PC-free photo printing, copying and scanning, thanks to a 2.5 inch LCD viewer with simple menus offering easy viewing, selecting, copying and printing of photos without a computer, as well as a multi-format memory card reader for simplified photo management.
