Whilst this printer is no longer in production, you are often able to get a good deal on a second hand unit in the market. Look out for the number of prints done on the head, and at the perishable rubber rollers. This printer was the first to be able to use 6x8 media to produce 6x4 prints, and the print quality is far better than its predecessor the DPB1000.

Whether or not The Kodak 6800 was a re-badged Shinko S1245 is open to conjecture, however the Kodak 6800 unit uses the same media, and is to say the least is 'very similar'. The Kodak unit was probably the best selling printer when packaged with the Kodak G3 instant print kiosks, and second hand units are numerous, it is worth noting that there seems to frequently be a shortage of replacement components.

Designed as a portable unit for event photography such as school balls, weddings and the like, this second all-in-one solution from Sony combining a basic screen, card reader and printer was relatively slow on the uptake, This Snaplab incorporated the UPCX1 printer and was not Windows Based, this proved a great help in avoiding Viruses etc. The UPCX1 was overshadowed by the UPDR150, and did not ever really make it big locally.
