Canon unveils three new printers
Canon announced three new printers today: the Pixma MP470, Pixma MP210, and Selphy MP740.
Canon announced three new additions to its printer lineup today--two home inkjet all-in-ones and one standalone photo printer. The two inkjets are part of the Pixma line: the Pixma MP470 and the Pixma MP210. The $100 MP470 offers 4,800x1,200 dpi color printing with 2pL droplets, 2,400x4,800 dpi scans, a 1.8-inch color LCD, and a USB 2.0 connection. Using its built-in memory card reader and PictBridge port, you can print photos without touching your PC. The PictBridge port also doubles as a USB port for the optional Bluetooth adapter that lets you print wirelessly. The MP470 uses a two-tank ink system (black and tricolor). It will be available in August.
The $80 Pixma MP210 is a more basic printer, as it lacks an LCD and memory card readers. It does have a PictBridge/Bluetooth port, however, and offers the same print resolution and droplet size as the MP470. This model is available this month.
Finally, the Selphy CP740 is a $100 standalone photo printer that's small enough to be portable. The embedded 2-inch LCD lets you preview your photos, and accompanying navigation buttons let you peruse the contents of your memory cards. It has built-in memory card readers and a PictBridge/Bluetooth port, as well. The Selphy CP740 is also available this month.
