Includes two new PIXMA Wireless Photo All-In-One printers
Lake Success, N.Y., August 19, 2009 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announced two new PIXMA Wireless1 Photo All-In-One (AIO) printers, one new PIXMA Inkjet Business Printer with PgR technology and a SELPHY Compact Photo Printer with a new voice guidance system. The versatility of these machines provides users with many options, whether working in the home office to print business documents or putting together an album of the latest family vacation.
Developed with the idea of making photo printing easier, the new Canon SELPHY and PIXMA products have several innovative features. The SELPHY ES40 Compact Photo Printer includes a voice guidance system which provides step-by-step instructions for printing and adding graphics to images without having to rely on a manual. The PIXMA MP990 and PIXMA MP640 Wireless1 Photo AIO printers utilize the Auto Photo Fix II feature to help users get the most out of photos and help to correct many common photo errors, such as underexposed images. To enhance those near perfect memorable photos from either a sunny beach wedding or a child's graduation taking place in a dark auditorium, Auto Photo Fix II can assist with features such as Multi-Zone Exposure Correction, improvements in overall face detection, scene analysis, plus brightness and saturation correction.
With PgR technology on the Canon PIXMA iX7000 Inkjet Business Printer, business owners will be able to produce professional-looking documents in-house while also reducing overall printing costs by printing documents on plain paper. Small businesses will be able to print high-quality color business and marketing documents on low-cost plain paper as large as 11" x 17" or 13" x 19" without having to leave the office. Using a clear ink working in tandem with five LUCIA pigment inks when printing on plain paper, consumers will no longer need to worry about oversaturated and wrinkled documents.
"In today's economy, consumers are searching for versatile and easy-to-use products at a reasonable price without sacrificing overall quality," said Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. "The addition of these new PIXMA and SELPHY printers will provide consumers and businesses with many different choices when making a decision and can be confident that they will receive a high-quality, durable product."
