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. This
new model supercedes the Bubble Jet S820D. The S830D allows you to print
directly from Canon Bubble Jet Direct digital cameras and camcorders and
connects with the full range of Canon digital cameras using the PC Card
slot, all without using a PC.
Full Exif Print compatibility is now provided both in direct print modes
from a Canon digital camera or from a memory card, or via the Easy-PhotoPrint
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
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.
Borderless printing is a standard feature and Canons new media
including Matte Photo Paper and Photo Paper Plus Glossy are also supported.
Resolution and speed
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.
The Canon PowerShot S30* PowerShot S40*, PowerShot G2*, IXUS 330 and IXUS
v2 digital cameras and MVX2i camcorder can print directly to the S830D
using Bubble Jet Direct print mode. The printers PC Card slot accepts
CompactFlash, SmartMedia, Memory Stick and Microdrive
cards from other digital cameras for direct printing without a PC.
Borderless Printing and Single Ink
The S830D also offers true borderless printing, making it possible to
effectively print full-bleed images that are indistinguishable
from traditional prints. Utilising Canons Single Ink technology,
the S830D is economical as well as innovative. It supports Windows
98, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Mac OS.
Digital Print Order Format
The Bubble Jet S830D supports DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) allowing
the pre-selection of images directly from a digital camera.
Using the specifically designed LCD control panel on the printer itself,
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.
Not only does print quality rival that of traditional silver halide photos,
independent tests also confirm long photo life spans of up to 25 years
light fastness with Canon Photo Paper Pro (see specifications).
A comprehensive range of software is also included with the S830D:
Easy-PhotoPrint uses Exif Print data for more accurate print representation
of digital images. Canon PhotoRecord allows multiple layouts and auto
scaling of images to different paper sizes. Canon ZoomBrowser EX provides
archiving, retouching and slide show features. In addition Canon PhotoStitch
(Mac and Windows versions available) allows digital images to be combined
into panoramic scenes. Finally, ImageBrowser is a Macintosh application
that provides similar functions to ZoomBrowser EX.
