Our PIXMA range has been designed to achieve the highest print quality. The combination of unique printing technologies with Canon ink cartridges and paper ensures outstanding, photo-lab quality results.
FINE is Canon’s unique print head technology at the heart of every PIXMA printer enabling fast photo printing with superb detail. The high ink placement accuracy is achieved with the use of a large number of densely positioned microscopic ink nozzles produced with a photolithography process.
For superior colour reproduction in graphics and crisp text in documents, many PIXMA printers use dye colour and pigment black inks. Dye inks are used for exceptional quality photo prints with vivid colours, while black pigment inks produce crisp, clear prints of small letters and sharp lines.
Preserve memories for a lifetime. A combination of genuine Canon ink and Canon photo papers maximizes superb printing ability of the FINE print head technology resulting in more vibrant and beautiful photos which resist colour fading for longer.
With ChromaLife100 inks your photos will resist colour fading for longer. Prints on PP-201 can last over 100 years in the photo album, approx. 30-years on display behind glass (light fastness) and 10-years without the glass (gas fastness).
The ChromaLife100+ inks offer enhancements in colour reproduction and deeper blacks for more vivid photos. Prints can last over 200 years in the photo album, approx. 40-years on display behind glass (light fastness) and 10-years without the glass (gas fastness).
The professional LUCIA pigment inks offer accurate colour reproduction and enhanced print longevity. Prints can last approx. 200 years in the photo album, 80-years on display behind glass (light fastness) and 50-years without the glass (gas fastness).
The FINE technology allows fast photo and document print speed. Canon uses the latest agreed International Standards (ISO) to measure the print and copy speeds. This way, you can be absolutely confident of the performance when using any Canon printer or All-In-One.
