: Four new A4 photo printers will join Canon’s line-up next month under the ‘Pixma’ brand name.
The iP8500, iP6000 and iP4000R models feature 2-picolitre FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology and deliver up to 4800 x 2400 dpi printing resolution. The iP5000 offers 1-piclitres FINE technology and has a top output resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi. All four printers can handle a range of paper sizes from 10 x 15 snapshot prints to A4 size and borderless printing is supported. All models have a built-in auto duplex unit for double-sided paper printing. A key feature of the new models is their dual paper path, which allows paper to be loaded from the standard sheet feeder or front-mounted paper cassette. This means two different types and/or sizes of paper can be loaded simultaneously. The space-saving body design of the new models also allows them to be placed on shelves or against walls and their PictBridge compatibility lets users make prints directly from connected digital cameras or camcorders.
