In the dorm room or in the home office, the new Canon PIXMA iP4300 Photo Printer offers affordable solutions to photo and document printing needs. Just in time for the back-to-school season, the Canon iP4300 breaks price barriers by offering valuable yet useful features like individual ink tanks with the smart LED system and advanced paper handling capabilities. With the PIXMA iP4300 printer, consumers can create long lasting lab quality photos from an exceptional every-day printer for an estimated selling price of $99.99. “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. As a follow-up to Canon’s award-winning Canon PIXMA iP4200 model, the new Canon iP4300 Photo Printer builds upon that success, delivering ease of use, reliability and overall improvements in design. Canon designed this printer for consumers that want great photos with no compromise on text speed or quality.

The printer features four dye-based ink tanks, plus a pigment black ink tank, which deliver sharp text and professional-grade documents, making the Canon iP4300 printer optimal for everyday tasks like printing web pages, text documents, and presentations. With the front panel PictBridge port, consumers can directly connect any PictBridge enabled digital camera or DV camcorder to print beautiful photos with high-intensity vivid colors. The ChromaLife100 system helps ensure that the photos will last, while the individual ink tanks also incorporate the Smart LED system to alert the user to low ink levels and to easily troubleshoot issues.

Canon PIXMA iP4300 - Resolution and Print speed
The printer delivers lab quality photos, thanks to a print head that incorporates the Canon FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology with 3,584 precision nozzles that produce a dazzling 9600 x 2400-color dpi maximum resolution, with droplets as small as one picoliter. Resolution this high is a first in a product at this price point in the Canon Lineup. More nozzles mean faster printing. The Canon PIXMA iP4300 Photo Printer blazes through lab quality borderless 4 x 6 inch photos in an astounding 36 seconds. For printing of important documents, print speeds can reach up to 30ppm for that black and white term paper or up to 24ppm for that full color presentation. Besides saving time, the printer also saves paper with Auto-Duplexing, which can print on both sides of a sheet of paper.

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.
