The Sony UP-DR80 8 x 10" compact Dye-Sublimation printer is feature-packed and is a great choice for portrait and event photographers as well as for discriminating non-professionals. It outputs a variety of photo sizes, ranging from 4 x 8" greeting cards, up to gorgeous 8 x 12" prints, and everything in between, all with a choice of Matte, Luster or Glossy print surfaces from the same print pack.

Designed for high performance in a compact size, the UP-DR80 is light in weight and small in footprint, making it ideal for working in confined spaces and transporting from studio to event.

Superb Print Quality
The UP-DR80 utilizes Sony's Dye Sublimation Technology, incorporating heat to transfer dye from a ribbon, laying one color at a time to specially coated paper. The process yields vivid, accurate color and professional quality prints in very little time. In the final step of the transfer process a laminate is applied that makes the print resistant to light, heat, water, humidity, and fingerprints and helps to prolong its life.
Compact Design
Designed for high performance in a compact size, the UP-DR80 is lightweight and features a small footprint, making it ideal for working in confined spaces and transporting from studio to event.
Multi-Cut Functionality
The UP-DR80 features a multi-cut functionality that allows multiple print sizes to be produced from the same print pack. In addition to 8 x 10" and 8 x 12" prints, 4 x 8", 5 x 8" and 6 x 8" prints can also be created.
Easy Front-Loading Operation
The front-loading operation makes it easy to replace paper and ribbon, allowing the UP-DR80 printer to be used in the tightest of spaces or in a kiosk. Paper and ribbons are automatically fed, enabling a speedy, steady workflow.
Choice of Paper Finishes
Glossy, Luster, and ProMatte finishes are selectable from the UP-DR80's printer driver (included) and are all produced from the same printer pack. This helps event photographers to grow their businesses by offering a variety of products to the customer all from the same paper supply.
Simple Color Adjustment
The UP-DR80 offers easy color adjustment via its printer driver. A preview image is generated, from which the user can adjust images easily.
Color Look Up Tables
Three types of color look up tables, used to transform the input data into a more desirable output format, are available to reproduce suitable colors for different applications, such as outdoor, indoor, portrait or location.
Gray Balance Adjustment
The gray balance adjustment function on the UP-DR80 printer allows selection of the color that most closely matches the user's requirements and provides the most suitable tonal range for the selected application.
Connectivity to Slave Printer
The UP-DR80 can be connected Sony's popular SnapLab desktop photofinishing station, UP-CR20L (not included), as an external "slave" printer. The UP-DR80 can print on media sizes that the UP-CR20L doesn't support, such as 4" x 8" greeting cards and 8" x 10" enlargements 1
