The DPP-FP50 features a wireless remote control that makes it possible to print, edit, and enjoy lab-quality pictures from the comfort of the sofa.

With the DPP-FP50 users have complete control over the process, printing as many photos as they like, when they want them and all from the comfort of their home.

The DPP-FP50 will be available in May 2005 at an affordable price, the elegant and compact DPP-FP50 printer, making it attractive to any style-conscious consumer whilst still providing stunning results.
