Epson has launched the SureColor P5360 photographic printer, a successor and upgrade to the SureColor P5070. It targets the professional and production photographic markets.
The new Epson SureColor P5360 has an improved printhead and a new ink set with an extended colour gamut in dark blue hues. Its advanced print engine delivers a higher resolution of up to 5760dpi x 1440 dpi. In addition, it offers sheet and roll capability.
Its refined design combines an improved advanced Micro Piezo printhead with Epson’s Variable Sized Droplet Technology (VSDT). Epson says this pairing ensures the consistent production of prints with smooth tonal transitions. Also, it enable reproduction of the intricate details captured by today’s modern high-resolution cameras.
Featuring a new 10-colour UltraChrome PRO10 ink set in high-capacity 200 ml cartridges, the printer delivers an extended range of blue hues. Dedicated channels for photo and matte black inks mean no ink switching, helping to save time and reduce ink waste.
A built-in Carbon Black Mode increases Dmax, allowing for rich blacks and exceptional contrast on glossy paper.
For flexibility and increased productivity, the printer includes a built-in roll feeder; auto cutter; and a high-capacity cassette that accommodates up to 100 cut sheets ranging from 203mm x 254 mm) to A2+ sheets. The SureColor P5360 also includes Epson Media Installer, a software application designed to help control parameters for successful printing with a variety of media, including thick fine art papers.

The company has integrated the latest printhead and ink technologies optimised for photography into it. It says that professional photographers can maximise productivity, reliability and consistently produce the finest exhibition-quality prints.
