CanonCanon's i9900 desktop photo printer empowers consumers, photo enthusiasts and working photographers to make their own professional quality borderless photo prints. The 13 x 19-inch inkjet printer features new red and green ink cartridges for rich, accurate colour rendition, industry leading 4800 x 2400 dpi (resolution may vary based on printer driver setting) maximum colour resolution, microscopic 2 picoliter ink droplets, as well as USB 2.0 Hi-speed and Firewire interfaces. The i9900 desktop photo printer will be available in May for a suggested list price $499.99 (prices subject to change at any time). The i9900 photo printer is the first in its class to offer eight individual ink tanks.
Canon launches 13x19 INCH desktop photo printerCanon's exclusive ChromaPLUS 8-color ink system adds individual red and green ink tanks to the cyan, magenta, yellow, black, photo cyan and photo magenta inks that are commonly found on six-colour printers. The red ink tank allows for an approximately 60% increase in the orange/red gamut over six-colour printing and provides for previously unobtainable orange hues and well as richer reds. The green ink adds about 30% increase in green gamut as compared to six-colour printing and creates more accurate and deeper greens in grass and foliage. The resulting finished print more closely matches the colour characteristics of positive photographic film.

Canon's dye inks produce higher levels of glossiness, more vivid colours, reduced graininess and better contrast photo quality when compared with traditional flat and lack luster pigment-based inks used in conventional printers.

In addition to the two new colours, Canon has further increased the printer's photo quality by doubling the maximum colour resolution to 4800 x 2400 dpi from the earlier generation i9100 photo printer. The i9900 photo printer features the world's longest and highest nozzle-density print head in a consumer product and has 6,144 nozzles, capable of ejecting a staggering 122 million droplets per second that are a mere two picoliters in size. The print head uses Canon's exclusive advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology, which ejects consistent prescribed-volume ink droplets for smooth gradations, accurate skin tones and rich, vibrant colours. To match the look of minilab prints, the i9900 photo printer supports edge-to-edge borderless printing in 4x6, 5x7, 8.5x11 and 13x19 inch sizes.

Photo printing speeds on the i9900 printer remain significantly faster than the competition. Users can print a 4 x 6-inch borderless photo in about 38 seconds, a 5 x 7-inch borderless photo in approximately 47 seconds, a 8.5 x 11-inch borderless photo in about 84 seconds and a full 13 x 19-inch borderless photograph in under three minutes. For printing text, websites and other documents, the i9900 model features print speeds of up to 16 pages per minute (ppm) in black and up to 12 ppm in colour printing.

ICC Support
ICC profiles provided allow for the accurate translation of colour data from any other compliant device into the Bubble Jet i9900's native colour space. For professional users reliant on consistent colour reproduction across devices (such as scanners, monitors and printers) the ICC profile permits tremendous flexibility by ensuring the retention of colour accuracy during printing, irrespective of the image source.

Direct Photo Printing
Direct photo printing is made possible without using the computer thanks to the PictBridge featured on the new i9900 photo printer. PictBridge is an industry standard for digital printers, digital cameras and digital camcorders that allows the direct printing of images from PictBridge compatible digital cameras and camcorders to a PictBridge compatible printer, regardless of brand or manufacturer, without the use of a computer.

Bundled Software Easy-PhotoPrint 2.1
Canon's latest release of its Easy-PhotoPrint software, version 2.1, works directly with Canon's new Digital Photo Professional software , improving the professional-level of support.

Together with Digital Photo Professional software, the Easy-PhotoPrint software is now capable of identifying colour-space information automatically and transferring it accurately to the Canon i9900 photo printer. Easy-PhotoPrint v2.1 software enables image data obtained in Adobe RGB with a broad colour range to be faithfully reproduced on the Canon i9900 photo printer.

Easy-PhotoPrint v2.1 software is an ultra-easy high-speed photo printing application equipped with a wide selection of useful printing functions for professional, prosumer and amateur users. Features include functions for batch printing a large number of images of differing types and aspect ratios, index printing to facilitate file management, and for printing out Exif data captured together with the images. It can also print out RAW data when used in combination with Digital Photo Professional. Together with Digital Photo Professional, it ensures the optimum workflow from colour management to printing. The integrated workflow of Digital Photo Professional and Easy-PhotoPrint 2.1 enables the colour management system to reproduce colours faithful to the original image data.

In addition to Easy-PhotoPrint software, the i9900 photo printer includes Easy-PhotoPrint Plus and Easy-WebPrint software. Canon developed the Easy-PhotoPrint Plus software to reduce red-eye problems and smooth out facial imperfections. Easy-WebPrint software facilitates printing from the Internet by automatically formatting and scaling the output so that the entire page is printed even when it extends over multiple screens. This time saving and cost saving feature reduces waste and ensures that the selected pages are printed properly, in colour and without trimming the right-hand margin.

The i9900 photo printer features fast USB 2.0 Hi-Speed and Firewire interfaces to satisfy the needs of professional users. USB 2.0 Hi-Speed is compatible with both Windows and Macintosh systems while the Firewire interface is specifically for Macintosh users. A conventional USB interface is also included allowing up to three computers to be connected to the printer simultaneously.

Compatible with both Windows and Mac platforms (Windows XP, Windows 2000/Millennium Edition/98 and Mac OS (8.6 to 9.x) and Mac OSX v 10.2.1 to 10.3.x.), the i9900 photo printer also includes the Zoom Browser EX (Windows) and ImageBrowser (Mac) image management software, and PhotoStitch (for Windows and Mac) that makes composite images from shots taken separately.
