Canon Announces New Printers for Photo printing and more
Canon has announced new printers which promise greater resolution and performance as the electronics giant continues to focus on photo printing options for it’s users. The printers include two additions to it’s Pixma Line and a stand alone Photoprinter. The Pixma MP470 and MP210 are all in one printers which cost $100 and $80 respectively. They have an output of 4800 x 1200 dpi, can scan images at 2400 x 4800 dpi, and use a standard USB 2.0 connection.
Also featured is a 1.8″ color LCD (MP470 only), a built-in memory card reader and PictBridge port – which we’ve come to expect in most Canon printers. This means that users can print photos while bypassing a PC connection. In addition, the PictBridge port supports an optional Bluetooth adapter for wireless printing.
The third printer announced is the Selphy CP740, a photoprinter that, can be portable thanks to it’s petite size (like fitting in the palm of your hand). It has a 2″ LCD, can print borderless, full-photo lab quality, 4″ x 6″ images in less than a minute, and can access memory cards via the same built-in memory card reader as the Pixma models, as well as the PictBridge port which will take the same optional Bluetooth adapter. Cost is about $100.
Both the MP210 and the Selphy CP740 are available this month, while the MP470 will be available come August.
