Canon Rolls Out New Printers

Canon releases its multifunction printer range for 2010 with wireless connectivity

Canon’s latest additions to the PIXMA range of multifunction printers includes Auto Photo Fix II, which is claimed to assure that images printed will be of superb quality while reproducing the vibrant colours that were first captured in the image.

This technology is said to resolve many common photo printing errors, such as underexposed images, through Multi-Zone Exposure Correction and improvements in overall face detection, scene analysis, and brightness and saturation correction.

The PIXMA MX870, MX350 and MX340 all offer wireless connectivity, meaning that home office users can scan and print from multiple PCs. Printing wirelessly also means that users don’t have to clutter their work space with cables and wires. For Apple iPhone users, the Canon Easy-PhotoPrint EX application is now compatible with the new Wireless multifunction printers.

Other features include Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) for faster printing and Easy-WebPrint EX software.

The Auto Clip feature lets users select part of a Web page to print, enlarge text size, and combine clips from multiple pages into one printed document, saving paper and ink by printing only the information needed.

The high-speed PIXMA MX870 can reduce paper use and the amount of time it takes to complete a printing project by using the device’s two-way paper feeder and Auto Duplex ADF. Additionally, the auto self opening output tray reduces the likelihood of paper jams. Other features enhancing office efficiency include Quick Start and the Scan to Memory function which enables users to save scanned data in highly compressed PDF format directly on memory card or USB flash memory.

Print from anywhere in the house with wireless and Ethernet capabilities and enjoy efficient direct photo printing from USB, memory card and camera. Similarly, navigation through menus is made effortless by the operation panel which includes a 2.5-inch LCD screen and  Easy-Scroll Wheel.

With wireless connectivity, the PIXMA MX350 and MX340 offer users hassle-free and versatile solutions that meet the needs of the office and the family. Both models deliver premium quality documents, images and photos thanks to a hybrid system with pigment black ink for sharp, crisp text and dye ink for smooth, natural images. Users will welcome the convenience of high speed print, copy and fax, Automatic Document Feeders, and direct photo printing. The MX350 can print photos directly from memory card, USB and camera.

Fast and effective home printing is made easy by the new PIXMA iP2700. This entry-level single function printer offers a wide array of advanced features including Auto Photo Fix II and Easy-WebPrint EX to enhance the quality of print output. Creating beautiful images for the home or photo albums is made possible by photo lab quality, borderless printing up to A4 size. This printer is also suitable for printing school projects.
