They Go Where You Go

The portable printers (models DPP-FP97 and DPP-FP67) can easily be transported in a carry-on bag to birthday parties or on family trips.  Plus, they are the perfect addition to any scrapbooking party.

A variety of creative prints that come with the DPP-FP97 model make customizing memories and creating on-the-spot, one-of-a-kind gifts a snap. This model comes with frame, scrapbooking and calendar templates so you can personalize your photos. Sony added a software keyboard to this model for quick type messages and personalized greeting cards.

Both models produce 4 x 6-inch photo prints. The DPP-FP97 model prints photos in about 45 seconds, and the FP67 model prints photos in about 63 seconds.


Photo Editing and Color-Correction On-The-Fly

The auto touch-up feature with the DPP-FP97 model can be engaged to correct common photo problems with the touch of a button.  This feature engages technology that corrects white balance, focus, exposure and red eye—all from the 3.5-inch LCD screen right on the unit.

Both new printers are compatible with several types of flash memory cards, including Memory Stick PRO™, Memory Stick PRO™ Duo, SD Memory Card, SDHC, MMC and xD-Picture Card. The DPP-FP97 model also supports Compact Flash® and Microdrive® flash memory cards.


Connect and Share

To enjoy a slideshow in HD, the Sony DPP-FP97 photo printer has an HDMI-out port (although the cable itself is not included), so it can be connected to a Sony BRAVIA® HDTV or other compatible HD television set.

The printer can also be connected to any of Sony's digital S-Frame models via a USB connection. You can print pictures from the frame directly to the printer.


Pricing and Availability

In May, the DPP-FP97 digital photo printer will be available for about $200, and the DPP-FP67 model for about $120 direct at sonystyle.com, military base exchanges and authorized dealers nationwide.
