PIXMA iP2700: Bringing photolab-quality and speed to
the home user

London, UK, 1st February 2010 – Canon today announced the launch of its latest stylish and easy-to-use home printer, offering sharp text and photolab-quality at an affordable price. With its unique sophisticated and compact design, the PIXMA iP2700 is ideal for the home user looking for a simple and easy to use device in a sleek, low-profile design that sits neatly on any shelf.

The PIXMA iP2700 includes Canon’s FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology – which offers grain-free printing at resolutions of up to 4800X1200dpi with a 2pl droplet size - and is ideal for documents, web printing and photos.

Photo lab quality printing with advanced technologies
Printing a 10x15cm borderless photo in approximately 55 seconds, the PIXMA iP2700 uses Canon’s ChromaLife 100+ system to give enhanced longevity and improved print quality to ensure that images stay vibrant, colourful and fresh-looking for as long as possible. The superb output quality gives users total confidence that their home photo printing is of a comparable standard to a photolab.

ChromaLife 100+ works by combining Canon’s FINE technology with Canon Genuine Photo Paper, which offers vivid colour and high durability, and dye-based inks, which allow rich colour reproduction and further durability.

Simple but smart software solutions for the home user
The PIXMA iP2700 comes with advanced software solutions including Easy-PhotoPrint EX, which incorporates Auto Photo Fix II and Easy-WebPrint EX for smart yet simple web printing.

Easy-PhotoPrint EX is designed to allow users to create premium, borderless photos in simple steps and access advanced printing features including automatic red-eye correction. Auto Photo Fix II delivers superb results when applied to under-exposed images by dividing them up into multi-zones and then using advanced algorithms to calculate the exact amount of image correction required. The result is beautiful-looking, photolab-quality prints.

Easy-WebPrint EX is an application that makes it simple to select key sections of a web page, before ‘clipping’ them to a single document for printing. Smart features include the ability to make automatic or manual web page selections, or to clip multiple selections from within and across different website pages. Easy-WebPrint EX is available at installation or as a download from www.canon-europe.com.
