Epson PictureMate Dash (PM 260) Portable Photo Lab

It’s strange, but in all the years that I’ve been using digital cameras, I find that I rarely print out my photos.

That’s why I was curious when I was approached by Epson to review their PictureMate Dash PM 260 Personal Photo Lab photo printer. I wasn’t sure if this printer would make me excited to print photos, or if I would continue to snap and file as before.

What if you had a tripod that stowed easily in a gear bag and could stick to almost anything? The MonsterPod claims to do just that. Let’s see if the claims are true.
