Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.
It has ports on the side for inserting SmartMedia, CompactFlash, SD, and Memory Stick digital "film" and has an LCD panel that lets you select pictures from the "film" to print, so one can use the device as a digital photo lab without PC.
To get all functionality of this printer working under Linux, especially also the non-printing features, like scanning, printer status, maintenance, and photo download from memory cards, use the HPLIP driver package from HP.
It has a USB port on its front side to directly connect a digital camera (HP only).
Border-less (full bleed) printing on paper sizes up to Oufuku-Hagaki is supported with the HPLIP driver.
Best output quality reachable with the HPLIP driver (printer compatible to HP DeskJet 990C), especially the 1200-dpi high resolution mode gives excellent photo quality.
When used with HP's HPLIP driver, this printer auto-detects the paper type and ink cartridge type and does appropriate dithering and colour adjustment internally, controlled by the hardware. So even when Ghostscript with the HPLIP driver only renders the image with 300 or 600 dpi, the higher resolutions are used for the internal dithering. So if you insert photo paper, the printer will print in photo quality, no paper type choice in the driver's options is needed. There is also a special high resolution mode where the image is rendered in 1200 dpi and interpolated to 4800x1200 dpi by the hardware, without paper detection, intended for photo paper only.
This printer supports an optional duplex unit (probably supported by the HPLIP, "cdj970", and "pcl3" drivers).
Consumables/Refills: Refill: 1 black or photo, 1 color cartridge
