HiTi Photoshuttle Photo Printer
The HiTi Photoshuttle
is HiTi's fastest printing stand-alone Photo Printer, able to print photos in as little as 45 seconds.
The Photoshuttle is the second model in the HiTi photo printer range. Quality is every bit as good as the more expensive printers, even the top of the range 730PS prints at the same 300dpi resolution (equiv, to 4800 dpi inkjet printer)

The 6 x 4 prints are not only borderless but are waterproof uv and fingerprint resistant, the special paper used is almost tear proof ensuring that your photo quality prints stay that way. Prints can be either Gloss or Matt finish and this can be selected using the easy to use Photo Desiree software. This software can be downloaded here for you to try before purchase if required.
As with all HiTi Photo Printers the quality is superb, with the ability to print 16.77 million true colours, it's no wonder that professional photographers use HiTi photo printers instead of conventional photo labs!
What is missing from the Photoshuttle is the ability to use the printer in stand alone mode. You cannot print direct from your camera memory so you would need a method of getting your pictures from your camera onto your PC. You must have a PC in order to use this printer.
Print Speed is faster than the 630PL printing a 6x4 photo in only 45 seconds! which is significantly faster than the 630PL which takes 130 seconds (2 mins 10 seconds) to print the same photo. At either print speed this is still faster than a lot of Inkjet Photo Printers. The HiTi 631PS is the next model in the range and provides the ability to print directly from your camera memory.
The Photoshuttle also supports the monochrome KO photo kit, which none of the others in the 600 range support except the 640PS. All of the models will however print pictures in monochrome using the standard colour ribbon. If you are planning to do lots of monochrome images you may wish use the monochrome KO kit for best results.
A carry case is available as an optional extra if you want to carry your printer around. The unit is compact at 8.8 x 8.3 x 5.5 inches (22.4cm x 21cm x 14cm) and so will fit on even the smallest of desks. The printers only weighs 4.5lbs (2kgs) The 630PL is powered from the mains and will operate from 110-240vac 50/60 hz with a typical maximum power consumption of 150 watts when printing, this is much less when in idle mode.
Connection to your PC is via USB cable (supplied).
Print Costs: 30p (inc vat!) per 6x4 print, much cheaper than the High Street Digital Print Booths.
