Canon just added three new Pixma-branded printers and one Selphy standalone printer to its line of business and family-friendly devices. This debut also sees the materialization of Canon's new Auto Fix II technology that takes one-click touch-ups to the next level of clarity, correcting many common photos including underexposed pictures or low-light backdrops.
Only the Pixma MP990 ($300) and MP640 ($220) printers will include this new feature, but both are also set up to print wireless (the MP640 has a built-in print server), vibrant photos thanks to Canon's ChromaLife 100 ink system and the additional gray ink tank to enhance black and white snapshots.
Finally, the two Pixmas also include large LCD screens as well as Canon's Easy-Scroll Wheel, which we first enjoyed on the Canon PIXMA MP980.
The Pixma iX7000 business inkjet rounds out the Pixma offering and contains auto duplexing, three paper feed trays, an extra large paper input, and Ethernet connectivity--all of which could help small business increase their printing productivity. The iX7000 will retail at $400.
The $150 Selphy ES40 Compact Photo Printer joins the ranks with last year's CP760 and 770 in Canon's line of portable, compact photo printers.
These devices are designed to be the home version of the popular walk-up photo kiosk, with high-quality photos at the touch of a button. Like several others in the Selphy line, the ES40 boasts a large 3.5-inch LCD screen and the Easy-Scroll Wheel for quick navigation and basic photo and color editing.
As a testament to Canon's innovation, the ES40 even includes a voice guidance system that vocalizes step-by-step instructions to help you print and even lay graphics over your photos without the use of a manual.
