This is the ideal system for on-location photo finishing without the use of a computer it has front a front USB port and memory card reader for direct input of images. It boasts 10-bit color depth for beautiful, vivid color prints, high speed output, high capacity, is lightweight, and comes loaded with practical software and utilities. This portable workhorse is an ideal choice for event, wedding, school, and promotional photographers.

Wireless Printing
Designed for professional users, the HiTi P510Si, with an embedded wireless device, provides the most convenient printing method for photographers. Working in conjunction with the HiTi WFT510 Wireless Foto Transmitter, photographers can not only use DSLR cameras, but also can use consumer-type cameras to enjoy wireless printing solutions.
WFT510 Wireless Foto Transmitter
HiTi's WFT510 Wireless Foto Transmitter is a wireless transmitter which supports DSLR and PictBridge enabled Point and Shoot cameras. Installing the WFT PC Kit, bundled with the WFT510, users can also transmit image data directly to a computer's hard drive, which further enhances the flexibility of the system. When teamed with the P510Si printer, the WFT510 enables users to do instant printing without removing the USB cable or memory cards from their cameras.
Dye Sublimation Printing
The HiTi P510Si is a dye-sublimation printer that uses heat to transfer dye to specially coated paper, creating photographic prints. The dye is transferred, laying one color at a time, using a ribbon that has color panels. The result is vivid, accurate color in very little time.
10-Bit Color Engine
Dye-sublimation printing is advantageous in that it creates quality images at high-speed, yielding true continuous tones and vibrant colors. The P510Si is embedded with the OEE II Image Processor providing 10-bit-deep color performance and excellent RGB levels.
Autonomous Operation
The P510Si is a self-contained unit that is equipped with built-in media card readers and a USB interface, allowing the user to print directly from various types of storage devices, and does not require a computer to produce beautiful photographic images.
Three Printing Modes
This printer-on-the-go offers 3 different printing modes, Event Photo, Personalized Photo and ID Photo, designed to speed the process of photo design and delivery. A hot key is position on the printer to allow the user an easy and convenient way to switch between modes.
Production Software and Utilities
The HiTi P510Si comes with a professional image software package that includes: ID Creator, allowing easily designed, multiple ID formats and EventDesiree Deluxe, customized for the event business, allowing users to print large quantities in a short amount of time by converting JPEG files into designated HiTi event templates. ID Creator is a PC-based program giving the user the ability to print Passport and ID photos; and eFrame Converter, dedicated utility that converts TIFF files into formats the P510Si can read.

      I spent countless hours and days researching what I wanted to go with(very frugal with my investments), but knew I needed something, because I kept missing out on monies when guests would ask for prints while I was hired to shoot "walk-arounds" at an event. I explored all the leading companies, DNP/Sony, Mitsi, Shinko, etc and had always been intrigued by Hiti and its $200-$400 printers. I watched countless YouTube videos and finally saw the one thing I was waiting for...WIRELESS CAPABILITY!! No need for an assistant!! Yippee, I was sold!!

      This is a solid beast of a machine, with a small footprint and the ability to make you seem like a magician to your clients. I can take a shot at an event while walking around, show it to the guest, send the print job from 330' away, continue to take shots and sending jobs as I make my way to the printer and come back within a few minutes with prints in temp frames...WHOA!!! They are amazed both with speed and print quality. I love it!! Then, once they see that, they either want to take more or they spread the word. It is AMAZING!! Thank you Hiti and for anyone on the fence, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

      P.S. I don't write reviews...

      I purchased three of these for a large onsite photography and printing job. There are a few things these printers do well. They print quick and can work hard non-stop for hours. I used these printers outdoors connected to a portable generator. They ran great, except for when the generator ran out of gas. It was 90 degrees outside, we had the printers in the shade.

      The wireless option on these printers is where the breakdown is. We used the Hiti WFT510 wireless adapters with our Canon 5D Mark III cameras. The wireless adapters worked for a while and then would start to throw errors. The batteries got very hot and had to be removed. After the device cooled down we were able to put the batteries back in and get them to function. During the time wireless did not work we had to shoot tethered by USB cable which is a slower process and of course defeated the purpose of having a wireless printer.

      The print quality was very good. Out of 2000 prints we ran there was only one print error where we had to rerun the print. Never was there a jam.

      After a few more runs I am sure we will figure out a better solution to keep the wireless transmitters from overheating. I guess I would say the printers are fantastic, just the transmitter is not.

      I do Black tie, Military balls and Company parties. This printer will make your event go extremely well. I had Canon MG 6100/6200 ink jets before I purchase the Hiti printer. Thsy did ok if I had a few people in line, but when you have a line out the door because everyone want a picture, you better have something that can produce. The Hiti P510si produce. I like the speed and easy installation. I shoot with Nikon D-7000 teather to my Mac Book Pro 10.6 using Aperture 3 to view and print. The only thing I can find wrong is it pretty heavy and I wish it had a rolling case.

                Worst printer ever built. No help from this company or even hiti to fix the issue. Colors does not come out right at all. ICC profiles don't work. Do not buy if you have a mac. It will not work. You can try if you have a PC.

                    I purchased this printer for this amount of money and it doesn't come with ink or capability to use it when you receive it. I had ordered what I thought would be extra ink at the same time and it was put on backorder. That has been a few weeks ago and I haven't heard anything sense. I have a photo shoot coming up and no printer to use.

                        Quite simply the best investment for my event photography business. Not only is this printer quick, it delivers excellent prints. And the range for the wireless transmittion is also equally excellent. Definitely paid for it self within 2 events. And no matter if you go directly from a computer or wireless you'll be pleased with the speed and color representation this printer delivers.

                          This is a great little printer that produces shots with beautiful color. I have used it for a very large annual event where I have to crank out 200+ images each day for presentation boards. While it is a sturdy and reliable machine you have to be careful to not burn it out by printing numerous consecutive images. The only downside to the machine is there is NO way to get it to read Lightroom color profiles and if you have to deal with support, you are dealing with someone in [*] and it is fruitless. You just have to take the extra step and export from Lightroom (if that is your main photo software) and into photoshop to print. It is a bit of a minor inconvenience but not a major problem.

                            I would recommend it to anyone who is starting a small business. Excellent complement to any photographer. I wish it would print all sizes though.

                            It is a small but very efficient machine. I wish it would print 8X10" photos.
