New CP-K60DW photo printer from Mitsubishi aimed at the photo booth market

Mitsubishi CP-K60DW-S Photo PrinterMitsubishi recently introduced a new printer to the US market – the Mitsubishi CP-K60DW-S Photo Printer. First announced at the Photo Plus Expo in New York in October, the K60 is aimed squarely at the photo booth market. This new printer boasts a sub $800 price tag, low cost per print, front-loading convenience; it’s small and compact and produces richly colored 2×6 photo booth style strips in matte or glossy – all important features for photo booth owners and operators. But wait, there is more! The CP-K60DW adds a couple of cool features that we have not seen before on a photo booth printer; features that may help you set your business apart and help you save money.

First, let’s talk about saving money. The Mitsubishi CP-K60DW has a unique “re-wind” feature. Without getting too technical, basically the rewind function enables the printer to print on an unused portion of media. For example, let’s say you have 6×8 media loaded in the printer and want to print only one 4×6. When you go to print the next 4×6, the printer will rewind and use the remaining ribbon. This feature enables you to offer 4×6, 6×8 and 6×6 without changing media. The feature also works with 5×7 media and 3.5×5 prints.

Another feature the CP-K60DW brings to the table is the ability to produce a square print. Can you say Instagram? Load the printer with 6×8 media and you can print a 6×6, full bleed, square print. If you are using Darkroom software, you can easily build an Instagram style layout for event photography, photo books or photo booth templates.

While it is a great photo booth printer, the Mitsubishi CP-K60DW is also suited for event photographers, or professional photographers that need high quality 4×6, 5×7, or 6×8 prints delivered quickly and economically. The K60 also comes with Mitsubishi’s Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a comprehensive nationwide service that offers next business-day replacement for units that are under warranty. Optional extended warranty plans can also be purchased to get up to five years of warranty coverage total.

    I Just wanted to say that we currently use 9 of these printers in Sydney, NSW. They are very reliable and are of a thicker paper than the dnp printers. The print faster too so I highly recommend them.

    Hi Mark, no, the K60 will print 6×8 and 5×7, but not 6×18 or 5×15. Are you trying to print panorama photos?

    With the Mitsubishi K60 printer, is there a way to print a 6×18 or 5×15 print?

    We haven’t heard about any firmware updates to add these features to the 70DW but it’s a great question which we will pose to Mitsubishi.

    Any idea if these advances would be pushed to the 80DW via firmware update as well?
