Canon has announced the launch of the high-performance PIXMA iP4940, a photo printer ideal for professionals and families looking to create fantastic quality documents and photos at impressive speeds.
“Replacing the highly successful PIXMA iP4840, the new PIXMA iP4940 incorporates leading printing technology and innovative features, including Full HD Movie Print and Easy-PhotoPrint EX,” comments Abri Kriegler, product manager at Canon South Africa.
Specialised features, including ECO Information and Auto Duplex Print, also ensure that reducing the environmental impact of printing is easier than ever before.
The PIXMA iP4940 comes equipped with a range of standout features, enabling owners to unleash their creative side. Updated Full HD Movie Print now lets users Merge Frames from full HD movies captured on Canon Digital SLRs, giving a sense of motion to printed still photos.
The newly introduced Layout Print mode also lets users select a small movie clip and use a comic-strip effect to print a storyboard.
Easy-PhotoPrint EX software, which uses favourite images to print photos, calendars and albums, now features Fun Filter Effect which provides a selection of instant photo effects, including blurring backgrounds and applying a soft focus or fish-eye effect, with the touch of a button.
Photos can even be transformed so they appear to be of small-scale models with Miniature Effect, or as if they were photographed using a pin-hole camera with Toy Camera Effect.
To reduce the environmental impact of printing, the PIXMA iP4940 features Auto Duplex Print which automatically prints documents on both sides of the paper, helping reduce unnecessary waste. The new ECO Information feature provides a visual display of how much CO2 and paper is being saved when selecting Auto Duplex Print.
The PIXMA iP4940 also utilises a 5 Single Ink system which makes it easy to replace each ink tank as required and reduce overall ink wastage, keeping costs down.
The PIXMA iP4940 features Canon’s advanced FINE print technology, with a minimum 1pl droplet and up to 9600dpi print engine, capable of producing professional quality prints and sharp and vivid text based documents.
Photos and documents are printed rapidly; the PIXMA iP4940 boasts an enhanced ISO ESAT print speed of 12.5ipm for mono, 9.3ipm for colour, and produces a borderless 10x15cm photo in approximately 20 seconds.
The PIXMA iP4940 also features enhanced Direct Disc Printing, with a new range of templates for disc labels and case covers available to customise for a truly personalised CD and DVD disc collection.
The PIXMA iP4940 is available in South Africa from October 2011 at an estimated retail value of R999.00.
