CanonCanon is pleased to announce the launch of the Bubble Jet i450, a truly breakthrough product for its price, offering top quality photo printing, and mono and colour documents at record-breaking speeds. The i450 boasts improved mono print speeds of 18ppm and 12ppm straight out of the box performance – the fastest of any inkjet in its class, according to Canon's tests. The i450 manages to increase print speed by 30% over its predecessor thanks to mechanical enhancements to the auto paper feeder, carriage movement, and a longer mono head that prints on one pass, bi-directionally. Photo print speeds are also the fastest in its class – the i450 is capable of producing a 4"x 6" photo with 1200dpi prints in approximately 62 seconds.
With new high 4800x1200 dpi resolution using advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology, Canon's Micro-Nozzles and a new 2pl drop size, the Canon Bubble Jet i450 delivers even greater quality printed documents with images of an unsurpassed level of detail.

Printing at a higher resolution allows more ink to be placed on the paper and offers faithful reproduction through an increased colour range. Equally importantly, the i450 utilizes Canon's 10 micron diameter Micro-Nozzles (approximately 40% smaller than its nearest competitor), to ensure consistent 2pl droplet size and accurate drop placement – crucial to high quality photo printing. The new 2pl ink drop size reduces graininess of photos, whether printed on plain or photo paper. It gives photo quality close to that achieved with traditional six-colour printers.

A result of Canon's unique head manufacturing process, the Micro-Nozzles are of greater precision than those of rival printers. Not only are the nozzles smaller and narrower, they are also half the length of their nearest rival, allowing quicker ink replenishment at the nozzle, therefore delivering consistent ink droplets with ultimate drop placement on paper. Micro-Nozzles are contributing to new levels of photo quality without sacrificing print speed.

The i450 supports Canon's direct print function, enabling users to print photos by simply connecting a cable from their camera to the printer. By eliminating the need to download images into a PC first, output is made quicker, easier and more convenient.

Exif Print 2.2, software that allows extra information taken by the digital camera to further enhance print colour and quality without using a PC, is also included in the i450.

Other digital imaging software features in the i450, such as Canon Easy-PhotoPrint, Photo Noise Reduction and Vivid Photo technology further enhance the faithfulness of rendition, quality and naturalness and improve pictures taken in poor light. With its combination of photo quality and speed at such an affordable price, the i450 really is a unique product.

The Canon i450 is fitted with a USB interface, and supports all popular Windows and Mac operating systems.
