    New Canon Pixma Photo Printers - Press Release

    Canon Launches New Lineup of Pixma Photo Printers Emphasizing High Performance, Ease-of-Use and Design; The PIXMA iP6700D, PIXMA iP6310D and the PIXMA iP1700 Showcase Canon's Commitment to Quality While Adding to the PIXMA line-up

    LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 10, 2006---Need to print out a recipe? Need directions to a friend's house? How about printing out photos taken over the weekend? For whatever your need may be, Canon has the right solution with the introduction of three new single function models, including the Canon PIXMA iP6700D, PIXMA iP6310D and the PIXMA iP1700 Photo Printers.

    "From Grandma to the grand kids, our new PIXMA photo printers give consumers with varying printing needs more choices, more features and a better value," said Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager of the consumer imaging group at Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Canon Inc. "In addition to options, we wanted to offer all our customers a unique cutting edge design that is very much in line with today's tastes and styles."

    PIXMA iP6700D Photo Printer: A Worthy Successor to the Award-Winning PIXMA iP6600D
    Providing the perfect match to its award-winning digital SLR line-up, Canon introduces the PIXMA iP6700D Photo Printer (estimated selling price $199.99)(1) for vibrant, high-quality photo prints. When used in conjunction with the new Canon EOS 30D digital SLR for example, the new, six-color, iP6700D Photo Printer supports the user-friendly Canon-to-Canon Direct Advantage. Connected via PictBridge, the iP6700D printer's Canon-to-Canon connection allows users to brighten faces, print shooting information on a print, or even print a contact sheet with up to 35 images all directly from the camera controls without a PC. The Canon-to-Canon workflow allows consumers to take advantage of added convenience and power to produce outstanding image quality directly from the camera to the printer without the need for a PC.

    The iP6700D utilizes Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) technology and the ChromaLife100 ink system to produce high-quality, long-lasting photos(2) that any pro would be proud to display. With an extra-large 3.5" color LCD screen for easy viewing and editing of photos, Smart LED equipped ink tanks and the Canon Advanced Paper Handling System, the PIXMA iP6700D Photo Printer has the capabilities of a photo kiosk built right in.

    PIXMA iP6310D Photo Printer: Personal Minilab For The Home
    The PIXMA iP6310D Photo Printer (estimated selling price $99.99)(1) is a 6-color photo printer that features Canon's ChromaLife100 ink system for long lasting, beautiful photos(2). The printer also supports a number of direct photo printing capabilities including select memory cards, digital cameras, DV camcorders, camera phones and other PictBridge ready devices. The iP6310D model has a maximum of 4800 x 1200 dpi(3) resolution with microscopic droplets as small as two picoliters, to produce photos that are virtually grain-free -- fast. In fact, it can create a borderless 4"x 6" photo lab quality print in approximately a minute(4), as well as other popular sizes that are accepted by the iP6310D, from wallet to 8.5"x11" size prints.

    ChromaLife100 System
    The new PIXMA Photo Printers use Canon's ChromaLife100 system, including FINE print head technology for great photo printing. When using select genuine Canon photo papers and inks, prints can resist fading for up to 100 years when stored in an archival quality photo album.(2) The 100-year-lifespan rivals that of many traditional film based photos, long considered by consumers to be the benchmark for image permanence. Prints produced on Canon Photo Paper Pro with ChromaLife100 inks have an up to ten-year gas fastness when exposed to open air. ChromaLife100 prints, when created using Canon Photo Paper Pro or Photo Paper Plus Glossy, have up to 30-year lightfastness when displayed under glass.(2)

    FINE Engineering
    Launched globally by Canon in 1999, the Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) advanced print head technology is one of the keys to the impressive speed and high photo quality in PIXMA photo printers. FINE technology uses a ground-breaking high-performance, multi-nozzle print engine that ejects consistent and microscopic ink droplets. The results are high-resolution photos with great detail and clarity in less time.

    Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss (SG-201): The Expansion of Canon's Photo Paper Lineup

Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss (SG-201) provides a warm luster or pearl finish that closely resembles a traditional retail print. This new paper style will be available in all of the most popular sizes:
