This portable workhorse it an easy choice for event, wedding, school, and promotional photographers.

Dye Sublimation Printing
The HiTi P510S 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 P510S is embedded with the OEE II Image Processor providing 10-bit-deep color performance and excellent RGB levels.
Autonomous Operation
The P510S 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 P510S 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 P510S can read.

    The printer is easy to set up and use. I have used it for many events tethered directly to the camera, connected over wifi (P510Si) and connected to a computer. You really can't beat this printers performance at this price. Out of the box it does not take much to set up. You do need to order paper and ribbons as the printer does not come with one. They come in 2 packs (2 ribbons and 2 rolls of paper which will print about 650 photos total, works out to about $0.15 per print). I have two years of shooting experience with these printers.

    All but one of the events we have shot have been outdoors. In Central California, summer can get to be 100+ degrees. These printers do not perform their best in that kind of heat. We have experienced ribbons breaking when we try to print a lot of photos in hotter climates. The printer will on average print a photo every 15-20 seconds, it is quite fast. As long as the printer is not kept running for too long, we don't have issues. Most of our events are 4-5 hour events where we print 1500-2000 prints per printer during that time. We always make sure to have extra ribbons. You can fix the ribbons and use them again, but that takes time. We want out printers to keep running. To fix a ribbon, I recommend having a roll of scotch double sided tape so you can fix tape across the receiving end of the ribbon and then affix the other end to it. I then rotate the ribbon around until the next layer of clear is showing.

    We rarely experience paper jams however do experience ribbon tears. The ribbons are very thin and snap easily so you want to make sure you are careful when inserting the ribbon into the printer and always remove the ribbon when in transit. The event we shot last week, we snapped 6 ribbons but were able to fix all of them.

    The display on the printer is easy to use and understand. Though there are some weird english translations, I still understand what it is saying to me. Adding a photo frame to be printed onto the photo was pretty simple though there was not much provided on how to do this from Hiti. I found a Youtube video that walked me through the process and had to do it on a PC. This was a pain because I use all Mac computers.

    When I bought my first Hiti P510S printer I had read online that support was a little rough so I purchased paper and ribbons so I could use the printer and get used to it. After about 30 prints I had gone through every possible scenario I could think of and had a good understanding of the printer. To torture test it before a major event I took multiple photos from my camera sending them all to the printer requiring 10 copies. I wanted to attempt to overload the printer to see when and how it would fail. In a temperature controlled room, I was unable to do this.

    One note: When shooting tethered from camera to printer, shoot in JPG mode. The printer did not know what to do with a Canon Camera RAW file, even when I was shooting in RAW+JPG. When I shoot-to-print busy events I put my camera in small fine jpg mode which makes for a manageable sized file to be transfered while still being large enough to print.

    I recommend slightly over-exposing your photo if you are doing shoot to print. Maybe 1/2 stop above what you normally would shoot at. Regardless, you should still test to see what you will get.

    If you want to go wireless, the Hiti wireless packs are junk. They overheat the batteries and then fail. If you want to shoot wireless, get a wireless transmitter for your camera that is designed to be used with your camera. I shoot with the Canon 6D which has built-in wifi and that works great.

    All-in-all the printers are pretty fantastic for the price. I recommend them because they are small and easy to use yet perform well.

    I bought this printer last week based on the reviews. Over the last week, I got a chance to print about 200 images - all nice quality. Today I took it to an event - and yes, I removed the paper box and the film cartridge and reinstalled the shipping foam. When I got to the event, I set it all back up and again ran some very nice test prints. Ten minutes before the event, it threw an "ADC" code - too bad there is nothing in the manual or online to tell me what that meant or what I should do about it. The printer - and my event contract - were dead. I expected this thing to last for 200,000 prints - not 200.

    I know manufacturing on this product was affected by natural disasters - I really wonder if quality control was put on the back burner to get production back on line.

    This printer cost me a lot of money today - what else do you need to know?

        I have years of experience in photographing studio portraits, but am new to event photography. I was leary of buying a brand I'd never heard of, especially from China, but I've not regretted my decision! I have no complaints about this printer, it works just like advertised.
        This is one of those items that pays for itself after only a few events. It's one of my biggest money makers - people seem much more willing to buy prints when they are printed immediately.
        It is noisy, but that's not a reason to not get it.

          Comments about HiTi P510S 6" Dye Sub Roll-Type Photo Printer (US/CA version):

          I have been using this for a photo booth for the last three months. It's quite a workhorse. No major problems, while it does have its touchy moment at times, I've never had any major issues with it at a gig. That's the most important thing. The paper and the ribbon are very touchy when you insert or replace. If the door does not close just right or if the ribbon is not seated properly, you will continually get error messages. But once everything is in position, if you don't touch or move it around, it works like a champ. It's fairly fast and the prints look awesome. I have also personally used the card slots with the screen and that works great as well. When reviewing with a client, it seems like it takes forever, but when you are working by yourself and you find something to do within the 12-15 seconds it takes to print, then it's great.

              Use it for on demand event printing. Replaced four inkjets with one of these. Life is much better. Prints look good, prints fast. Use Eye-Fi cards and PrintRipper software to automatically process, border and print photos completely hands free. Will probably buy another.

                I got this printer up and running in less than half an hour. It produces nice pictures up to 23X15cm (9x6").
                No more troubles about drying-out of most expensive ink-tanks and clogging of print heads, which made me tired of using ink-jet-printers.
                Although resolution does not seam high, pictures look like real photos to me - see attachment. I scanned in a photo after printing :-). The software delivered to print from PC is not straightforward to me, so I just give 4 stars for this printer.
                Skin tones are sometimes unnatural, especially, when flash was used and the picture slighly over-exposed.

                      I purchased this p510s printer and it sat in its box for more than a year. Never moved or used. I open it open finally last week and it shot out three jacked up photos and then gave me a ADC error. There's no mention of this error in the manual or anywhere online for that matter. Warranty only lasts one years says the man who barely speaks English when I call the service place. He said it will probably be a $400 repair. 3 photos in and it breaks, , sincerely Chinese HITI junk. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT. No one local to your community will be able to fix it, I called everyone.

                      This printer handles nonstop printing action, and does it fast. The paper and ink are super quick and easy to load during an event. The maintence is very minor. I've had 2 paper jams that were inconvenient but fixable within 15 minutes. Be sure to update any software right away- It does make a big difference in performance.

                          I work at a Bank and we used this printer to print photos with Santa for the community. I printed about 200 pictures over three hours. Set up was easy (be sure to read the directions before operating). Printer is fast and fairly quiet. I attached the printer directly to the camera and printed after each shot. It took about 20-30 seconds from picture to finished print. I was going to hook up the printer to my Mac laptop- but it seemed easier for quick pictures (was not going to edit them). I experienced no problems or jams- but I am sure eventually something like a jam will happen. That is why you should have a few trial runs to learn how to trouble shoot on the fly (if possible). Customer service was a great help- I know very little about photography and this type of printing. They suggested this printer and it exceeded our expecations. Customers commented on the quality of the photo and the colors were bright.

                              I purchased this printer to experiment with event photography printing. Its seems to be a pretty solid printer. At close to 300 prints on my first roll of paper and ink, the printer has payed for itself with at least 20-30 prints to go on the roll. The consumables are very inexpensive allowing for a sizable profit per print. It is pretty easy to use after you play with it a couple times. The manual is not that informative but will get you going. I haven't used mine with my MAC so I cant speak about its interface in that regard but as a stand alone this thing amazes me. If this company ever produced an 8x10 format printer I'd likely buy it to cover that range as well!

                                Comments about HiTi P510S 6" Dye Sub Roll-Type Photo Printer (US/CA version):

                                I bought this printer after reading all the rave reviews about it, and they were all absolutely right. I couldn't be happier! My only regret was waiting so long--previously, we'd been using an ink jet photo printer. Now, we're a REAL photo operation; the professionalism difference is huge. This printer is extremely fast (a 5x7 direct from CF card = about 20 seconds) and the quality is FABULOUS. You can get glossy or matte from the same paper (under settings, choose matte = on; default is off). I am a pet photographer and I take this unit to events to do photo prints on the spot. I continue to be wowed by the excellent dynamic range of this printer when printing black dogs. It's about the size of a large toaster and portable. We (me, my customers, and staff) continue to be awed by the unit's photo quality with each print we do. Additionally, the reasonable price of consumables makes it the same or cheaper to operate this printer than working with the photo lab I was working with before, and the photo lab was giving me wholesale prices! I had some trouble installing the printer driver on Windows 7, but when you call Hiti, you get real people on the phone immediately who are all very nice. They're open until 6 p.m. but since they're in CA, that's 9 p.m. EST so that is a real bonus. My problem was worked out and all is good, but as others have mentioned, the driver software is a bit lacking. The printer has 2 sizes of paper rolls--5 and 6-inch--and three sizes of ribbons--5x7, 6x4, 6x9. It is easy to switch paper between 5-inch and 6-inch rolls if you are at home, but at an event it is more challenging. There is a "box" that holds the paper roll; the box ejects very easily. To make on-site paper changes much easier, I bought a second paper box part direct from Hiti. I load one with 5-inch roll, the second with a 6-inch roll. The box was $165 delivered to my home direct from Hiti. Now, I have one 5-inch roll in a box and one 4-inch roll in a box and all I need to do is swap the pre-loaded rolls in their respective boxes. It goes from minutes to change paper rolls (and with the potential for finger prints on the paper, exposure to dirt, damage) to seconds, and if you do any kind of print volume that is $165 well spent!

                                I wish Hiti made an 8" version of this printer that could take 8" and 7" rolls--the 7" rolls would do 8-up wallets and other combo sheets, while the 8" would be great for 8x10 and it would be fab if I could also do 4x8 greeting cards on-site.
