Capture the Longest Day of the Year With a DNP Panoramic Print
CONCORD, North Carolina – Capture the sunset on the longest day of the year, the summer solstice on Wednesday, June 21st, with a stunning panoramic print produced on DNP’s award-winning DS620A™ dye-sublimation printer.
The summer solstice occurs when the sun’s tilt towards the sun hits its maximum angle: 23° 26′. It’s known as the longest day of the year because the tilt of the Earth’s axis is most aligned with the sun, providing us with the most daylight of the year. The solstice also brings the year’s northernmost sunrise and sunset, allowing photographers one day a year to capture light on north-facing buildings, landscapes, and horizons.
The DNP DS620A is ideal for printing those spectacular panoramic shots. It produces stunning 6×14” and 6×20” panoramic photos using DNP’s 6×8” media. The printer is a compact, inexpensive, and powerful production printer that uses a high resolution dye-sublimation process to produce professional-grade photos with impressive full-color details. The DS620A can print full bleed 5×5”, 6×6”, 5×7” and 6×8” high quality images, as well as a multitude of photo strip options from its special perforated media printing paper.
“Panoramic prints are costly and time consuming to create with an inkjet printer,” said Katsuyuki Oshima, President of DNP IAM. “With the introduction of panoramic print functionality to our DS620A dye-sub printer earlier this year, photographers can now offer high quality panoramic photo prints quickly.”
To enable panoramic printing, DNP’s DS620A printer must be updated to the latest version of the DS620A firmware (v1.41) and the user must be printing through DNP’s new Hot Folder Print (HFP) Utility v184.108.40.206.
DNP printers use a dye-sublimation printing process, which produces prints in a protective layer that provides resistance to common elements such as dust, water, fingerprints, and fading —photos printed by DNP printers will last for decades.
