The Perfect Partner

These printers make the perfect partner for Lumix digital cameras as unlike other home photo printers they are able to read extra information recorded onto the EXIF data by Lumix digital still cameras, allowing you to benefit from unique features such as ?soft skin? mode, ?night scene? mode and ?high sensitivity? mode. The KX-PX2 and KX-PX20 can reproduce beautifully those images captured by Lumix digital cameras. Photos taken by Lumix ?Baby Mode? or ?Travel Mode? can be printed with the baby?s age or the number of days that passed since the departure date requiring no PC**.

Feature Rich Printing

In addition to the standard post-card size, (10.1cm x 15.2cm) the Lumix KX-PX2 and KX-PX20 can print 16:9 wide aspect images (10.1cm x 18cm) so you can enjoy prints of a large group of people, expansive architectual structures and landscapes with dynamic width and rich perspective. This enables users to print images captured by the unique Lumix 16:9 wide aspect mode in their original format with no need for trimming. Furthermore, with the KX-PX20, users can enjoy these images on their 16:9 wide-screen TV in full screen mode by utilising the video out terminal.

The Panasonic KX-PX20

The KX-PX20 offers all the benefits enjoyed by the KX-PX2 but goes one step further with a number of additional features, to cater for those looking for that bit extra. Images can be viewed on colour LCD display or on TV by connecting it to the printer with the AV cable. You can enjoy a full slideshow of your images and edit them. In addition thanks to the dual CPU inside the KX-PX20, you can perform two jobs simultaneously. For example, you can view or edit photos while printing.

The KX-PX20 has a simple operation mode, which is optimised for simple printing operations, and therefore provides extremely easy functionality. There are also easy-to-follow printing instructions that appear on screen to guide you, making it perfect for the inexperienced photographer.
