Canon Enhances PIXMA Photo Printers

Canon has added two offerings to its PIXMA line of photo inkjet printers: the affordable PIXMA iP1600, which sells for $49.99, and the PIXMA iP4200, which costs $129.99.

The iP1600 replaces the outgoing iP1500 model and features a print resolution of 4800x1200 dpi and ink droplets as small as two picoliters. The four-color printer produces a lab quality 4x6-inch borderless photo in about 70 seconds.

Both printers feature Canonis ChromaLife100 system, which Canon says enables the printers to produce prints that can last up to 100 years when printed using Canonis inks and papers and stored in an archival photo album.
