A press release from Hi-Touch Imaging Technologies announces that its Transphotable dye-sublimation printer is now in the USA.

The Transphotable is a portable 4" x 6" dye-sub, and can be plugged into a car cigarette lighter with the included DC car power converter. No computer is needed, as the printer has a 1.6-inch color LCD display, and slots to accept CompactFlash and SmartMedia cards natively, or Memory Stick, MultiMediaCard and Secure Digital media with an adapter. A computer can be connected via a USB connection and used with HiTi's PhotoDésirée imaging software - or your own image editor - if you prefer.

To make the Transphotable printer suitable for portable use, it has been ruggedized and has extra dirt and dust filters . It is available immediately at a cost of $399.99, and looks to be a good solution for anybody needing to make 4" x 6" prints of their photos away from the home or office...
