PictBridge

PictBridge is a technology that lets you print directly from your digital camera to the printer without using a computer to handle the data transfer in between. Some manufactures offer direct printing for their own proprietary devices (for example, the ability to print from a Canon digital camera to a Canon printer with the aid of USB hook-up), but PictBridge is an industry standard rather than proprietary technology, meaning you could connect one manufacturer's camera to another manufacturer's printer for direct printing if they both support PictBridge. PictBridge compatible devices offer camera-to-printer connecting, single-image printing, and uniform error messages.
