Canon today announced the launch of its latest stylish and easy-to-use home printer, offering sharp text and photolab-quality at an affordable price. With its unique sophisticated and compact design, the PIXMA iP2700 is ideal for the home user looking for a simple and easy to use device in a sleek, low-profile design that sits neatly on any shelf.

The PIXMA iP2700 includes Canon's FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology – which offers grain-free printing at resolutions of up to 4800X1200dpi with a 2pl droplet size - and is ideal for documents, web printing and photos.

Photo lab quality printing with advanced technologies
Printing a 10x15cm borderless photo in approximately 55 seconds, the PIXMA iP2700 uses Canon's ChromaLife 100+ system to give enhanced longevity and improved print quality to ensure that images stay vibrant, colourful and fresh-looking for as long as possible. The superb output quality gives users total confidence that their home photo printing is of a comparable standard to a photolab.

ChromaLife 100+ works by combining Canon's FINE technology with Canon Genuine Photo Paper, which offers vivid colour and high durability, and dye-based inks, which allow rich colour reproduction and further durability.

Simple but smart software solutions for the home user
The PIXMA iP2700 comes with advanced software solutions including Easy-PhotoPrint EX, which incorporates Auto Photo Fix II and Easy-WebPrint EX for smart yet simple web printing.

Easy-PhotoPrint EX is designed to allow users to create premium, borderless photos in simple steps and access advanced printing features including automatic red-eye correction. Auto Photo Fix II delivers superb results when applied to under-exposed images by dividing them up into multi-zones and then using advanced algorithms to calculate the exact amount of image correction required. The result is beautiful-looking, photolab-quality prints.

Easy-WebPrint EX is an application that makes it simple to select key sections of a web page, before ‘clipping' them to a single document for printing. Smart features include the ability to make automatic or manual web page selections, or to clip multiple selections from within and across different website pages. Easy-WebPrint EX is available at installation or as a download from www.canon-europe.com.


Canon PIXMA MX870, PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340

Canon today announced the launch of three stylish new All-In-One printers for the small office / home office working environment; the PIXMA MX870, PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340. With Print, Scan, Copy and Fax functionality, the devices feature improved print & copy speeds, Wi-Fi connectivity and a fully integrated Auto Document Feeder, as well as Canon's FINE printing technology - ideal for printing documents, web pages and photos.

The inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity in all three models means that one printer can be accessed by a number of PCs and users can print and scan wirelessly from almost anywhere in the home or office. Super G3 fax transmits A4 documents in as little as three seconds per page[1]. The PIXMA MX870, PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 allows users to save faxes to internal memory and then store to a USB key as PDF. This is a very useful feature if either your ink or paper has run out.

Canon supports the industry-wide ISO productivity speed standard to calculate print and copy speeds accurately. This helps consumers to make true like-for-like comparisons when looking at different models. All three printers offer exceptional print quality at improved speeds: the PIXMA MX870 has an ISO ESAT[2] speed of approximately 9.4/6.1 ipm Mono / Colour and the PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 have approximately 8.4/4.8 ipm. Copy speeds have also been increased by up to approximately 50% for PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 compared to the previous models.  All the models also feature a fully integrated Auto Document Feeder (ADF) that enables users to scan, copy and fax documents quickly, with PIXMA MX870 supporting automatic duplex (two-sided) scanning and copying as well.

The PIXMA MX870, PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 incorporate advanced ‘Quick Start' technology which means that operation is almost instantaneous from the moment the power is switched on.

Easy-to-use functionality
All the models also feature a new and improved user interface. The redesigned operation panel offers a clear layout of functions from left to right, giving easy access by grouping keys by function. The PIXMA MX870 and PIXMA MX350 also feature 6.2cm TFT displays, offering a clear view of images and menus.

The scan to compact PDF function saves files that are up to 90% smaller than previous models, making them more usable and easy to e-mail, whilst still searchable by keyword. The new Auto Document Fix delivers beautiful and easy-to-view scans automatically by using advanced image analysis and area-by-area data correction.  

PIXMA MX870 offers automatic double-sided (duplex) printing as standard, while the PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 offer this as a manual function.  The PIXMA MX870 offers two paper feeders for improved convenience, and individually replaceable ink tanks, minimising ink wastage.

Advanced software solutions
The PIXMA MX870, PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 come with advanced software solutions including Easy-WebPrint EX for smart, yet simple web printing and MP Navigator EX for scanning and editing of documents and photos.

Photolab-quality printing with advanced technologies
As the PIXMA MX870, PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 are primarily designed for office and home use, they are optimised for both document and photo printing thanks to Canon's FINE technology. PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 print at 4,800 x 1,200 dpi with minimum 2pl ink droplets, while PIXMA MX870 has a higher resolution of 9,600 x 2,400 dpi with minimum 1pl ink droplets.  The new models are part of the ChromaLife 100+ system, which works by combining Canon's FINE technology with Canon genuine photo paper and genuine Canon inks, to provide long-lasting, beautiful photos.

The new models also allow the user to print without needing to switch on the PC or Mac. It is easy and convenient to print images directly from PictBridge, iPhone™ and Bluetooth[3] compatible devices and the PIXMA MX870 and PIXMA MX350 can also print photos from USB memory & memory cards.
