Canon PIXMA iP2600 printer

The PIXMA iP2600 Photo Printer
With
an attractive piano black design with rounded edges, many technology
features and a value price point, this desktop printer departs from the
traditional to stand out among its competition in this class. Canon
brings high-end features into this category with blazing speeds and
microscopic ink droplets being placed as small as two picoliters. The
Canon PIXMA iP2600 Photo Printer can deliver photo-lab-quality
borderless 4″ x 6″ photos in approximately 55 seconds.2 The
PIXMA iP2600 Photo Printer is an easy-to-use model capable of printing
borderless photos from wallet size straight through letter size. Unlike
many previous sub-$50 printers, the iP2600 Photo Printer even includes
a paper output tray to neatly hold all printed photos and documents. As
an attractive addition to the home office or a student’s desktop,
printing from 1,472 nozzles helps to ensure speedy printing of
documents, presentations and Web pages at speeds up to 22 pages/minute
(ppm) for monochrome, and up to 17 ppm for color.3

With
only two FINE cartridges for consumers to concern themselves with, ink
management is fast and easy. Included with the four-color PIXMA iP2600
Photo Printer is a pigment-based black ink cartridge and a tri-color
dye based cartridge, allowing for improved sharp text printing with
pigment black ink, plus vibrant photo quality.

ChromaLife100 System
The
PIXMA iP2600 Photo Printer employs the Canon ChromaLife100 system for
long-lasting photo prints. When using the FINE print head, select
genuine Canon photo papers, and select genuine Canon dye inks, prints
can resist fading for up to 100 years when stored in an
archival-quality photo album. The 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 have up to a ten-year gas fastness when exposed
to open air. ChromaLife100 prints, when created using Canon Photo Paper
Pro or Photo Paper Plus Glossy, have up to a 30-year light fastness
when displayed under glass.3

Photo Paper Plus Glossy II
The
new Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy II offers vivid color with a
high-quality finish to consumers who are looking for a professional
look in their prints at a reasonable price. As a five-star paper with
an average cost as low as $0.10 per sheet, this paper has the look and
feel of high-quality photo paper fresh from the printer. During the
printing process, the dye is fixed to the surface of the paper
producing a deeper black and a clearer overall photographic finish. The
color reproduction is stabilized faster than ever before enabling
consumers to enjoy their memories right away.

The new PIXMA iP2600 printer has an estimated retail price of $49.994.
