Canon PIXMA MP600
Canon’s stylish new Canon PIXMA MP600 Photo All-In-One (AIO) printer gives consumers high quality photos, fast scanning and copying in a package that is easy-to-use and looks attractive in a home environment. With the new Easy-Scroll Wheel interface found on these two models, consumers can control device functions quickly and simply. In addition, the bright, high-definition TFT LCD screens allow consumers to view and edit photos directly from the all-in-one. “The Canon PIXMA MP600' stylish design and innovative interface makes this new multi-function device an attractive addition to any home, that any member of the family can easily use,” said Yukiaki Hashimoto.
Canon MP600 printer - Operation
Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager of the consumer imaging group at Canon U.S.A., Inc., continues: "Now all generations within the family, from grandparents to grandchildren, can easily copy and print vivid photos or produce crisp, professional-looking documents with great ease.” Canon introduces the world’s first multi-function printers with the Easy-Scroll Wheel interface. Consumers can access document operations at a glance, including the copy, scan, or print functions by simply rotating the wheel to the desired feature and pressing the “OK” button.
Canon PIXMA MP600 photo printer - Buttons and Functions
Users can now keep their eyes on the screen while selecting and executing functions, to give them full control at their fingertips. What’s more, Canon added the “HOME” and “NAVI” buttons to this device’s operational panel. When consumers push the NAVI button, it displays the machines on screen guide, which includes how-to recommendations for the most common functions. The HOME button allows users to return to the main menu, regardless of where they are in the sub-menus, assuring users that home is always just a click away. By adding the Easy-Scroll Wheel, HOME and NAVI buttons, Canon has been able to reduce the number of total buttons by approximately half compared to competing multifunction models. The Easy-Scroll Wheel also includes a large, bright and colorful TFT-type LCD screen, which consumers can use to preview images before printing and photo editing. The screen is viewable at a 170-degree angle, so everyone around the unit can enjoy what is displayed, rather than just the person sitting directly in front of the AIO.
Canon MP600 All-in-One - Photo printing
The Canon PIXMA MP600 AIO brings the photo lab to the home at an affordable estimated selling price of $199.99. It delivers stunning photo-lab quality prints at up to 9600 x 2400-color dpi1 and can produce a 4 x 6 inch borderless print in approximately 28 seconds2 with the look and feel of a traditional photo. The Easy-Scroll Wheel interface makes it simple for users to access the copy, scan and print functions quickly plus navigate and preview their photos on the 2.5-inch color TFT screen. Five individual ink tanks equipped with the Canon Smart LED technology can produce ink droplets as small as one picoliter for laser-sharp documents and virtually grain-free photos. The Canon PIXMA MP600 Photo All-In-One supports auto-duplex printing for two sided documents or photos while users can also store up to 300 sheets of plain paper in the two included paper trays. Consumers can also scan images at a maximum of 2400 x 4800 dpi, while automatically performing reductions, corrections, and enlargements of their documents and photos.
Canon PIXMA MP600 - PictBridge
When used with a supported Canon digital SLR, these new photo all-in-ones support the user-friendly Canon-to-Canon Direct Advantage. Connected via the PictBridge port, the 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 a PC.
The new PIXMA photo AIO uses the Canon ChromaLife100 system, including the 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. The up to 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-compatible inks have an up to ten-year gas fastness when exposed to open air. Prints created with the ChromaLife100 system, comprised of genuine Canon ink and photo paper, like Photo Paper Pro or Photo Paper Plus Glossy, have up to 30-year lightfastness when displayed under glass.
