Canon, a world leader in imaging technology, is pleased to announce the entry-level Bubble Jet S200x printer, incorporating a stylish new colour scheme, USB 2.0 Full Speed interface and Exif Print support. This printer offers high quality prints and exceptional versatility.

Aimed at first time users the S200x combines 2880x720dpi*, High Colour inks and additional driver functions for vibrant photo reproduction.

"The Bubble Jet S200x offers users mid range quality from an entry level printer, ensuring high resolution colour prints," says Mark Nicholson, UK Marketing Manager, Canon Consumer Imaging.

Quality
The Canon S200x delivers high-resolution 2880dpi prints. By printing at a higher resolution it is able to place more ink on the paper for a greater colour range. The use of High Colour inks in this printer allows the colour range to be further extended and achieves up to 25 years light fastness when using Canons Photo Paper Pro (see specifications).

The S200x also supports Exif Print via Easy-PhotoPrint. Exif Print is an open standard supported by many digital camera and printer manufacturers and significantly improves the quality of digital photos.

Versatility and ease of use
The Bubble Jet S200x is versatile and easy to use thanks to its advanced driver which includes Print Advisor, Photo Optimizer Pro, Image Optimizer and Vivid Photo. These functions help first time users select the optimum settings for printing and guarantee the best quality output.
New Canon Easy-PhotoPrint software is included in this range for the first time. This software improves quality of Exif Print compliant digital images for more natural looking photo prints. Easy PhotoPrint also makes borderless printing simple and easy.

The S200x delivers high quality on both plain paper and specialist media as well as supporting Canon's new high quality media, Matte Photo Paper (MP-101) and Photo Paper Plus Glossy (PP-101).

Print Speed
Through technologies such as fast relay paper feeding and bi-directional printing (in default as well as draft mode), the S200x achieves excellent productivity at up to 5ppm for mono and 3ppm for colour.

Canon offers affordable photo printing with the new Bubble Jet S330 Photo [Jump to top]

High quality 2400dpi printing
advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology
A4 & 4x6 borderless printing- for true photo feel
Fully supports Exif Print [Exif 2.2] the world standard for digital photos

Canon, a world leader in imaging technology, is pleased to announce the Bubble Jet S330 Photo. Bringing great quality photo printing to the entry level, this affordable printer creates crisp, high quality photo prints and sharp mono monochrome text and colour documents.

The S330 Photos high-resolution of 2400x1200dpi combined with Canons advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology ensures clear, crisp photos with high contrast and broad colour range. Borderless printing on A4 and traditional 4x6 photo paper gives users output that looks and feels like a photo making the S330 Photo ideal for people who want to start their first home photo studio.

Good photo printing is no longer just a feature of the top end models, says Mark Nicholson, UK Marketing Manager, Canon Consumer Imaging. "At Canon we are confident that the Bubble Jet S330 Photo printer will add great photo quality and high speed at an affordable price point to this growing market segment.

The S330 Photo incorporates the same advanced features as many high-end models giving overall output performance of up to 14ppm in mono and 10ppm in colour. The S330 Photo delivers permanent 5pl-drop size, with High Colour inks to give vibrant output even on plain paper.

High Quality
The S330 Photo uses Canons advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology to give the highest control of ink in terms of accurate dot placement, dot shape and dot density. Canon has re-engineered the traditional print head by moving the heater closer to the nozzle tip; this speeds up ejection of ink and delivers consistent droplets of 5pl. Pictures are less grainy and colour tones are improved.
The S330 Photo is further equipped with Photo Optimizer PRO and Vivid Photo technology. These powerful software tools further enhance printed photos. Also included is Adobe PhotoShop Elements.

Digital Imaging features
The Bubble Jet S330 Photo gives you totally borderless prints both onto A4 and 4x6 photo paper. The printers design has been changed to incorporate a sponge in the platen to absorb the excess ink when printing edge-to-edge. The S330 Photo is the only printer in its class* to offer this.

The S330 Photo also fully supports Canons comprehensive range of media including the new Photo Paper Plus Glossy and Matte Photo Paper.

When using Canons specialist Photo Paper Pro, prints have up to 25?years light fastness (see specifications) so they can be displayed for longer without losing impact.

New Canon Easy-PhotoPrint software is included for the first time. This software improves the quality of Exif Print (Exif 2.2) compliant digital images for more natural looking photo prints. Easy-PhotoPrint also makes borderless printing simple and easy.

The S330 Photo is fitted with a USB 2.0 Full Speed interface giving compatibility with Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Mac OS.

Pricing and availability
The Bubble Jet S330 Photo will be available from 1 September 2002 for around 79.

Using the specifically designed LCD control panel on the printer, users can easily select print quality, paper type and image layout as well as selecting which images are to be printed from the memory card installed. To further enhance flexibility, an optional TFT colour LCD viewing panel is available allowing images on the memory card to be viewed during the selection process.

Canon, a world leader in imaging technology, is pleased to announce the Bubble Jet S830D directly connectable photo printer that fully supports Exif Print [Exif 2.2], the world standard in digital photography.

With full Exif Print support the Bubble Jet S830D achieves even better photo quality results by accurately reproducing colours from images captured on digital cameras says Mark Nicholson, UK Marketing Manager, Canon Consumer Imaging.

The S830D photo printer provides the same ultimate print quality as the multi award-winning flagship S900. Ultimate photo quality is achieved with 2400x1200 dpi resolution using 6-colour inks, advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology, 1/6-density photo inks and permanent 4 picolitre drop size.

The Bubble Jet S830D is by far the fastest direct photo printer in its class, printing a 1200x1200 dpi photo in approximately two minutes, and offers USB 2.0 Full Speed support.

The S830D combines superior quality (six colours and 2400 X 1200 dpi, i.e. 2.88 million dots per square inch) with high-speed photo printing.

Canons advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology ink delivery process delivers microscopic 4 picolitre ink droplets onto the paper more accurately than any other system in use today. This advanced droplet technology combined with high resolution dot placement, 6-colour print process, and 1/6 density inks ensures that the S830D is capable of producing better photo prints than any other inkjet printer in its class.

Canon technology ensures photo prints with smoother ink coverage, reduced image noise and grainy texture as well as greatly improved gradation between mid-tones. This gives the user deeper, richer, more accurate and more intense colours, and ensures an extremely natural look to any photographic print.

To further enhance flexibility, an optional TFT colour LCD viewing panel is available allowing images on the memory card to be viewed during the selection process.
