Staying true to its legacy of technology and innovation, Canon India, has expanded its line up of photo printers with the launch of the new PIXMA G570, PIXMA G670, imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200.
The two new PIXMA G series 6-colour ink tank printers are built to unlock the power of high quality, enhanced photo longevity and low-cost printing for photo studios, businesses, homes and creative work. Leveraging on decades of advanced colour science locked within its universe of consumer imaging products, the new G series photo printers deliver a vividness and richness yet unseen in the ink tank printer world. Extending professional photographers, photo schools and advanced amateurs the ability to print stunning images on a diverse range of paper media, the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200 houses Canon’s latest printing technologies to create professional photos and exhibition-ready prints up to A3+ sizes.
Sharing his thoughts about the launch of new printers, Mr. Manabu Yamazaki, President & CEO, Canon India said, “As the pandemic continues to loom over the country with almost everyone operating remotely, Canon India is committed to bring forth solutions that elevate their work experience. As a complete 360-degree input-to-output solutions provider, we take pride in our imaging technology designed to capture true-to-life situations and printing technology that converts those colourful, abstract memories into a beautiful, frame-worthy picture. Continuing our journey of delighting customers with smart printing solutions, the launch of our new printers will further strengthen our portfolio of photo printers. We hope that the four new printers will create an enriching experience for our customers with the most innovative, cost effective and productive solution to their printing needs.”
Speaking about the new products, Mr. C Sukumaran, Director, Consumer System Products & Imaging Communication Products highlighted that, “As a reputed imaging company, at Canon, we believe in augmenting the photo printing culture among users through our products and solutions. We aim to help our consumers print the fond memories that they can cherish for a lifetime with an elevated level of colour expression. These photo printers are specially designed to meet the evolving photo printing needs of individuals providing them with a smart printing solution. With the additional user-friendly features and revamped design, the new printers are a good amalgamation of next level modern technology and cost-efficiency that adequately serves the end customer.”
PIXMA G670 and PIXMA G570
Like all other G series printers, the new models print at ultra low-cost while delivering very high yields. The full set of ink included with the printer alone can deliver approximately 3,800 sheets of 4×6” prints, ensuring worry-free printing minus concerns about cost of printing. Unlike conventional designs, the G570 and G670 are not only a breeze to maintain, but also built to live through high print volume demands. Featuring a modular structure with replaceable components that users can replace easily after long usage leading to wear, otherwise they would normally require a visit to the service centre for replacement.
The new G Series features 6 color all dye ink tank system. Along with Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black these printers come with the new Red and Grey Ink. The addition of red ink supercharges photographs ranging from blood-red sunsets to automobiles in gleaming red, injecting an arterial intensity not possible with composite inks. Grey ink ensures consistent monochromatic accuracy in print after print, while Black ink adds contrast, enhancing subject focus as well as fore from background separation.
Memories may fade over time, but the new ink system combines with Canon photo papers to deliver exceptional print longevity, with photos that can resist fading for up to 100 years under storage conditions. The G670 adds scan and copy functions on top of printing, differing from its younger sibling G570 which only offers printing.
INTUITIVE DESIGN, EFFORTLESS MAINTENANCE
The no-squeeze spillage-free ink bottle design automatically releases the requisite amount of ink during setup and ink fills, avoiding spillovers and ink splatter. For the environmentally conscious, a unique power-saving feature automatically turns off the printer after a period of inactivity, while any print instruction sent from smartphone or laptop achieves the opposite, powering up the printer automatically from sleep.
WIRELESS PRINTING FROM SMARTPHONES AND SMART HOME CONNECTIVITY
The free Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY mobile app enables users to print directly from, or scan images to mobile devices, as well as controlling printer settings and receiving device alerts. The PIXMA Cloud Link service allows users to connect their printers to social networks and cloud storage for remote printing and scanning.
Furthermore, the free Canon PosterArtist Lite enables both professionals and home users to effortlessly create gorgeous flyers and posters from a wide selection of 1,300 templates, photos and clipart. The PosterArtist Lite software is only available for the Windows operating system.
For a hands-free experience, these next-generation printers also work with Smart Speakers and are compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon for voice-activated printing. This empowers users to effectively multitask and print a wide range of documents from colouring pages and origami, cards and shopping lists via voice command.
Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and Canon PIXMA PRO-200
The Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300 is equipped with the LUCIA PRO pigment ink system and Crystal-fidelity digital image processing workflow that ensures the highest retention of image quality from image capture to print, making it the ideal companion for all professional photographers. The printer is built with Canon’s L-COA processor easily handles large image data and calculates the optimal ink droplet at fast speed, enabling high quality and high speed printing. The Optimum Image Generating (OIG) System also analyses each area of print and chooses the best ink mixture to ensure the most accurate colour representation in print.
The Canon PIXMA PRO-200 offers high quality printing with the unique 8-colour dye ink system that delivers a wider colour gamut delivering superb contrast and enhanced blacks, with richer colour expression in red and blue zones.

They also support printing of panaromic photos and custom border margins. Additionally, the printers also offer seamless workflow integration with the Canon Professional Print & Layout software that enables a professional screen-to-print workflow for precise layout control and soft-proofing.
