Canon launches new photo printer range

Canon, manufacturer of printers, scanners and digital cameras, recently announced its Pixma range of personal printers.

In total, the Pixma range includes seven new printers, comprising four personal photo printers and three multifunctional printers (MFPs).

"We expect that our new Pixma range will drive the demand for personal photo printers," says Nigel Taylor, GM of Canon Consumer Imaging. "Pixma combines designer styling, speed, quality photolab results and advanced printing technology -- we believe that it will do for printing what Ixus has done for digital photography," he says.

The new Pixma range incorporates the following single function printers:

  • The Pixma iP1000 -- Canon's entry level model, said to be able to print up to 14 pages per minute (ppm).

  • The Pixma iP2000 -- A 20ppm printer incorporating Canon's PictBridge, which aims to allow users to connect a digital camera directly to a printer without the need to install any additional software.

  • The Pixma iP3000 -- A 23ppm printer, including PictBridge and a duplexing unit - designed to allow users to print on both sides of the page.

  • The Pixma iP4000 -- Canon's flagship model, which, the company says, can pump out 25 pages per minute. It incorporates Canon's PictBridge, and five-ink print system.
On the MFP side of things, the Pixma range includes:
  • The Pixma MP110 -- An 18ppm printer, copier and scanner aimed at the entry level user.

  • The Pixma MP130 -- An 18ppm MFP with added PictBridge functionality.

  • The Pixma MP780 -- This 25ppm MFP is said to feature borderless printing, a duplexing unit, dual paper trays and Canon's PictBridge. It is aimed at the high-end user.
The new Canon Pixma range of personal and multifunction printers will only be available from mid to late October 2004.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
