HP’s third-generation gray ink is more neutral than ever before, allowing for exceptionally smooth transitions and detail. Eight individual high-capacity ink cartridges enable high-volume printing with efficient printing speeds – producing 4 x 6-inch photos in as fast as 10 seconds and 13 x 19-inch photos as fast as 1.5 minutes – ideal for professional photographers and advanced amateurs. Users can print exceptional photos on digital fine art media including canvas, photo rag, watercolor, stiff pre-matte and film up to 1.5-mm thick, as well as improved HP Advanced Photo Paper.
The versatile HP Photosmart Pro B8350 Photo Printer is ideal for hobbyist photographers who want to achieve professional lab-quality prints – from 3.5 x 5-inch to 13 x 19-inch – at home. The printer produces rich and realistic, six-ink color photos that resist fading longer than lab-processed photos – up to 108 years – using HP Vivera Inks.1 Additionally, the HP Photosmart Pro B8350 Photo Printer offers users more printing options with a rear input tray, and easily handles thicker and stiffer papers.
