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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
