Print without a PC! Simply connect the printer to a PictBridge-enabled digital camera or camcorder via a USB cable. Use the camera's LCD display to select the images and input them onto the pinter's control panel and start printing.
PictBridge is an international direct-print standard recently adopted by most major manufacturers of digital cameras and photo printers. With PictBridge, you can connect a compatible camera to a PictBridge photo printer via a USB cable, for easy direct printing without the use of a computer. The gear doesn't have to be the same brand — it just has to be PictBridge-capable.
