PIXMA printers new features:
Creatively-inclined users who like to experiment with their photos can do so with five Fun Filter Effects available with this new range of PIXMA printers. By playing around with these filters, users can stylize their photographs with Miniature Effect, Fish-Eye Effect, or even make the photos look like they’ve been taken with a toy camera.
Alternatively, Auto Photo Fix II can automatically adjust the levels and color balance of photographs so that they can be more vibrant and visually pleasing without the more stylized effects of the Fun Filters
FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) is a technology that can achieve printing resolutions as high as 9600 x 2400 dpi. It achieves this with a print head that contains 4,608 nozzles that create microscopic ink droplets as small as 1pl for virtually grain-free photos. With FINE technology, a 4″x6″ borderless photograph can be printed in approximately 20 seconds.
In doing its part for the environment, Canon has equipped the iP4970, MG8270 and MG5370 and MG4170 with additional ECO settings. These easily adjustable settings allow the user to set the printer to automatically print two-sided printouts when printing PDFs, photocopying, or printing templates.
