Canon Rolls Out Three Affordable Printers

Canon Rolls Out Three Affordable Printers

Canon has taken the wraps off three new printers, including two affordable all-in-one photo-capable units, and a new photo printer the company says is so small, it’ll fit in the palm of your hand.

First, the new all-in-one Pixma MP210 and Pixma MP470 are all-in-one units offering printing, scanning, and copying capabilities, and can print 4″ by 6″ borderless photos in about 46 seconds. The printers are the first to offer Canon’s AutoImage Fix feature, which analyses and categorizes scenes in photographs and assigns scene types to each image (like Portrait, Scenery, Snapshot, etc.). The units also include a Quick Start feature which makes sure the printers are ready to go only a few seconds after being fired up.

The MP210 is aimed at students and home users, and features a 4,800 by 1,200 resolution, text printing at up to 22 ppm for black and 17 ppm for color, USB 2.0 and PictBridge connections, and a “Z-Lid” expansion top which enables users to place notebooks or other large items for scanning. The MP210 carries a suggested price of $79.99 and should be available this month. The MP470 offers a 1.8-inch flip-up LCD panel, and will feature memory card slots for printing directly from camera media, an optional $49.99 BlueTooth adapter, plus USB 2.0 and PictBridge connectivity. The MP470 should be available in August at a suggested price of $99.99.

Canon is also targetting photo enthusiasts and scrapbookers with its new Selphy CP740 Compact Photo Printer, which weighs just 2.1 pounds and measures just 2.5 inches by 7 inches, making it portable enough to take on the road—and the unit can handle 4″ by 6″ borderless color images in just under a minute. The Selphy CP740 features a 2-inch LCD display with image preview capability and the printer offers built-in red-eye correction—both of which are handy when selecting and printing images directly from media cards (the printer supports CompactFlash, Microdrive, Memory Stick, Memory Stick DUO, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick PRO DUO, SD Card, Multimedia card, MMC mobile, MMC plus, mini SD Card, SDHC, mini SDHC, and RS-MMC—and an optiona adapter adds support for xD-Picture Card, Memory Stick Micro, MMC Micro, microSD, and micro SDHC.) Canon says the Selphy CP740 will be available “this fall”—although the product page says it should hit retailers in July—and will carry a suggested price of $99.99.
