Canon’s high-spec flagship, Pixma MP810 all-in-one is now available in South Africa, featuring the company’s user-friendly Easy-Scroll Wheel technology and producing 10x15cm prints in 21 seconds.

“We’re excited about the MP810 – it undoubtedly personifies all-in-one functionality, plus with additional features such as scanning and printing negatives and slides, it’s definite must-have for enthusiasts,” says Michelle Janse van Vuuren, product manager at Canon Consumer Imaging SA.

The new MP810 offers:

* 9600 x2400dpi resolution with advanced FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print heads and 1pl minimum droplet size;

* Photo and document copying at speed, incorporating Canon’s Dual Colour Gamut Processing Technology;

* Printing functions offering further creative options, including printing onto inkjet printable DVDs and CDs and auto duplex function for double sided prints and copies;

* 7.6cm colour TFT screen for high quality image preview and menu display, featuring 170-degree horizontal and vertical wide angle viewing; and

* Up to 4800dpi scan resolution with Super Toric (ST) lens.

For standalone operations, the MP810 offers a comprehensive range of direct photo printing options, including PictBridge and Card Direct; IrDA and optional Bluetooth (a separate adapter is required). Importantly, it enables users to digitally scan and re-print old photographs directly from 35mm film and slides.

Canon’s Easy-Scroll-Wheel allows users to interact with print, copy and scan functions in an intuitive way.  The wheel is used in conjunction with a high quality colour TFT screen. Incorporating IPS (In Plane Switching) technology, the screen provides bright, high contrast images with a wide 170-degree viewing angle on both horizontal and vertical planes. The MP810 also features an extra-large 7.6cm screen.

The MP810’s high quality Super Toric (ST) lens also eliminates aberrations and maintains image sharpness.

In addition, the MP810 includes a range of advanced features that offer greater convenience and wider creative possibilities. With dual paper trays, photo and plain paper can be loaded at the same time, eliminating the inconvenience of having to make paper changes when photo and document printing are both regularly required.

Printing and copying onto the surface of compatible DVDs and CDs is possible, while integrated duplex printing makes double sided document and photo printing an easy and convenient process.
