CanonCanon is pleased to announce the launch of two new printers - the Bubble Jet i250 and Bubble Jet i350. The new models are tailored for the expanding entry-level market of home users who expect high quality and advanced technology at an affordable price. The i350 also offers borderless photo printing. Replacing Canon's S200x and i320 respectively, the Bubble Jet i250 and i350 offer 4800 x 1200dpi printing - the highest resolution of any entry level printers. Adopting the popular, award-winning design of the Bubble Jet i320, the Bubble Jet i250 and i350 are small enough to be hidden away in a desk drawer and are a massive 120% faster than Canon's previous entry-level printer, the S200x.

"With the Bubble Jet i250 and i350 we are significantly strengthening Canon's presence at entry level by packaging the full benefit of Canon's advanced print quality at a price appropriate for home users" said Malcolm Hills, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging in the UK.

The super compact Bubble Jet i250 and i350 share the same distinctive design of the Bubble Jet i320, which won the German IF design award. With their fashionable lines and smart finish, the printers look stylish in any environment. Both models also fold down into a unit small enough to be kept in a desk drawer.

The Bubble Jet i350 features 4 x 6" as well as new 5 x 7" borderless printing to allow full bleed photographs with no white border, indistinguishable from traditional photos. This is a significant step up in functionality from the Bubble Jet i320 which was limited to printing 4 x 6" format borderless.

Both printers employ Canon's renowned advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology to achieve a constant 5 picolitre ink droplet size with 4800 x 1200 dpi resolution. This revolutionary semiconductor manufacturing method - patented by Canon - is used to create a print head, which incorporates both the nozzles and the heating elements used to eject the ink. This allows production of nozzles dramatically shorter than those of competing products, giving Canon unrivalled precision, consistency and accuracy of droplet size, shape and placement. The result is smooth colour and tonal gradations as well as ultra fine detail.

The Bubble Jet i250 and i350 are 120% faster than Canon's previous entry-level printer, the S200x: Bubble Jet i250 prints at 12 ppm mono and 9ppm colour, Bubble Jet i350, at 16ppm mono and 11ppm colour.

Speed is also improved through two new print modes. Economy Mode allows faster and more efficient printing than the conventional Draft mode. Photo Speed Mode is now available when printing on photo paper, and is approximately 55% faster than Standard mode.

Both printers are equipped with Easy-WebPrint software, which sits on the Internet Explorer toolbar. Taking the frustration out of web page printing, Easy-WebPrint saves, time, ink and paper by correctly scaling output to print the entire page (even when it extends over multiple screens) to prevent cutting off the right hand side of the page.

Also included in the box is Easy-PhotoPrint software, which makes photo printing simple and easy, assisting with options such as media selection and scaling. Easy-PhotoPrint also interprets camera setting information recorded at time of image capture on Exif 2.2 compliant cameras to deliver better quality and more natural looking photos.

To further improve picture quality, a range of software is integrated in the printer's drivers. Photo Noise Reduction, Vivid Photo and Photo Optimizer PRO combine to enhance the faithfulness of rendition, quality and naturalness of photographs - particularly those taken in poor light conditions.

Media supported by the two printers includes glossy and matte photo papers, T-shirt transfers, transparencies and envelopes.

Connection is via USB interface and both printers are compatible with all popular Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
