In the dorm room or in the home office, the new Canon PIXMA MP510 Photo All-In-One offers affordable solutions to photo and document printing needs. Just in time for the back-to-school season, the Canon MP510 breaks price barriers by offering valuable yet useful features like individual ink tanks with the smart LED system and advanced paper handling capabilities. The Canon PIXMA MP510 model provides consumers with both great photos and the resourcefulness of a multi-function device that copies and scans, for an estimated selling price of $149.99. “Canon gives consumers more options for their photo printing needs, and offers them a choice of great photos from a single-function or a multi-function device.”

“Now all generations can explore the versatility of a multi-function device or the speedy simplicity of the single-function home photo printer,” said Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager of the consumer imaging group at Canon U.S.A., Inc. The Canon MP510 copies, scans and makes high quality photo prints without taking up a lot of space. Even the 1.9-inch color LCD display folds down to form a flush surface, exposing a machine that compliments any workspace with its rounded corners and elegant design.

Two paper trays are built-in, which increase paper capacity and/or house different types of paper to suit printing needs. Users can also find card slots on the front of the machine for direct photo printing from supported memory cards, or a PictBridge port for compatible digital cameras or DV camcorders.

Canon MP510 All-in-One - Print speed and Scan quality
When printing, the Canon PIXMA MP510 Photo All-In-One can yield a borderless 4 x 6 inch photo in as little as 47 seconds. With a minimum two-picoliter droplet print head design and a resolution maximum of 4800 x 1200 color dpi, text and documents are crisp and clear, while photos are perfect for framing. The Canon MP510 model, as well as all new PIXMA products, support the new 8 x 10 inch sized Photo Paper Pro (estimated selling price $17.99) and Semi-Gloss (estimated selling price $12.99) specialty papers being introduced by Canon this Fall. The Canon PIXMA MP510 Photo All-In-One’s copy and scan features increase overall productivity. As an example, Canon’s Z-lid feature allows for easy scanning of bulkier objects like personal notebooks, by lifting vertically and laying flat, improving overall scan quality.

Canon PIXMA MP510 - Dual Color Gamut Processing
The Canon PIXMA MP510 Photo AIO employs advanced copy technology to help give the user amazing reproductions of original images and documents. Dual Color Gamut Processing Technology improves color accuracy by independently controlling brightness, hue, and other elements to make sure that there are minimal differences between the original and the copy. In addition, with Text and Image Separation Technology, the system can actually differentiate text from an image, making black text and fine lines dark and sharp when printed with pigment black ink. Now when black text appears over an image, the text on the following generations of copies can be virtually as clear as the first. These technologies plus hardware improvements can help make a copy almost indistinguishable from the original.

Canon ChromaLife100 System
This newest PIXMA model 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 light fastness when displayed under glass.

Canon Creative Park
Looking to extend creativity beyond just photos and documents? Consumers can now try Canon's new Creative Park website at canon.com/c-park. The site offers free 3-D paper craft projects, scrapbooking templates and embellishments, novel greeting cards, and the opportunity to learn more about digital photography.
