Canon announce the high resolution, low cost Bubble Jet S300 printer -
Canon say it's capable of up to 11 A4 pages per minute in mono and 7.5 A4 pages per minute in colour, this printer offers class-leading print speeds capable of printing a full A4 colour image in just over 1.5 minutes.
For outstanding image quality, the S300 combines higher-than-usual resolution and MicroFine Droplet Technology that delivers microscopic five picolitre ink droplets.
The high-density print head controls the ink droplets precisely to achieve a printing resolution of 2400 x 1200 dpi. The combination of high resolution and very small droplet size make the S300 capable of rich reproduction, even with subtle gradation of photos, ensuring professional results at all times.
Improved ink technology now means that colour images are much deeper, more vivid and extremely realistic. Canons High Colour inks are extremely accurate, vivid and intense, giving a natural look to any photographic print.
The USB only Canon S300 supports the following popular operating systems: Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Mac OS.
Availability and pricing
The S300 will be available to buy separately (previously it has only been available as part of Canons Imaging Solution package) from 1 February 2002 for around 99.
All Bubble Jet models come with a one year on-site warranty.
