PRESS RELEASE

Lexmark International, Inc. (NYSE: LXK) today introduced the Lexmark Z65p Photo Jetprinter, a complete solution for Windows users interested in printing color photos at home. The Z65p features on-board camera card readers that make it easy to print images from digital cameras, using a PC, at a stunning 4800 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) resolution.

“Lexmark is a pioneer in the photo printing space having introduced the first inkjet with built-in camera card readers, the Photo Jetprinter 5770, back in 1998,” said Tim Craig, Lexmark vice president and president of its Consumer Printer Division. “As the market has matured with the wide availability of affordable, high-quality digital cameras, Lexmark offers the Z65p, designed to enable consumers interested in digital photography to bring their pictures to life with the utmost simplicity.”

Features for Simple Photo Printing
Building upon Lexmark's commitment to serving customer needs, the Z65p offers the following features to simplify the photo printing process:


Photo card slots – Four slots accommodate six camera card types – CompactFlash I & II, Secure Digital, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, IBM Microdrive – supporting virtually all leading digital cameras. Users simply insert memory card, edit and store photos, via a PC.
Fotoslate software – Shipping with the Z65p, Fotoslate intuitively guides customers through the process of taking images from a photo card and formatting them to print, helping users select size, layout and the number of prints.
PrecisionSense™ technology – Automatically senses paper type and adjusts printer driver for optimal output.
Dual paper trays – Supports the ability to alternate between media, such as photo and plain papers – or multiple sizes of photo papers, without having to manually switch the paper.

Stunning Photo Resolution
The Z65p enables customers to achieve the kind of detail traditionally associated with photo lab prints. This printer offers brilliant 4800 x 1200 dpi resolution (5.8 megapixel) in black and color on multiple paper types, including glossy photo and coated papers, as well as 4800 x 600 dpi on plain paper. The Z65p boasts a three picoliter microfine color drop size, allowing for better color transitions and more detailed textures. Featuring specially designed color tables that automatically install by region of the world, the Z65p delivers output that reflects varying geographical color preferences.

Lexmark Signature Features
Like all members of the 2002 Z-line, the Z65p includes sophisticated ease-of-use features. The intuitive graphical interface system helps ensure an enjoyable printing experience with quick installation, helpful “how to print” wizard, improved trouble-shooting tips, an electronic cartridge ink gauge and special job finishing options such as booklet and poster printing. Also, the patented Accu-Feed™ paper handling system that accommodates a wide range of print media up to 150-pound stock, including envelopes, transparencies, card stock, labels and iron-on transfers.
