Detailed Features

Photo printing

Superior image quality and virtually grain-free prints are achieved by the PIXMA iP3600, ejecting ink droplets as small as 1pl onto the page at 9600x2400dpi resolution*. A 10x15cm borderless photo is printed in approximately 41 seconds*. The enhanced ChromaLife100+ system** combines Canon’s FINE print head, improved ink formulation and selected Canon genuine photo papers for long-lasting, beautiful photos.

Document printing

The PIXMA iP3600 features crisp text printing thanks to a dedicated black pigment ink cartridge, making it appropriate for all kinds of web and document printing.

5 Single Inks system

All 5 Single Inks can be replaced individually, minimising unnecessary ink wastage. A smart LED indicates when a cartridge is running low or needs replacing.

Convenience

Two paper trays enhance media flexibility, allowing both photo paper and plain paper to be loaded at the same time without having to swap them manually. Digital camera users will also benefit from the ability to print directly from their camera without a PC using PictBridge. If you prefer to hook the printer up to your PC, a Hi-speed USB interface enables the fast transfer of information.

Editing software

Easy-PhotoPrint EX software comes as standard for your creative projects, such as photo albums and calendars. The software also includes the enhanced Auto Photo Fix, which automatically removes common flaws from images using Face Detection and Scene Analysis technology. It also comes with a red-eye removal function.
