Canon wheeled out several additions to its range of bubble jet printers last week.
The all-new BJC-6000 is a colour photo quality printer which offers a print resolution of 1440 x 720dpi. The device uses six colour inks to produce more realistic prints, including improved metal gloss effects and skin tones.
The device uses what Canon calls Drop Modulation Technology, to provide greater control over the size and positioning of ink droplets on the page; this allows sharper images to be produced.
The BJC-6000 can produce eight monochrome pages per minute or five colour. This speed is achieved by using bi-directional printing, which means that instead of only printing when the head passes from left to right, it can also print in the opposite direction.
Also, the print head has multiple ink nozzles allowing it to cover a greater area in one sweep. Each ink cartridge can be replaced separately in order to reduce waste and running costs. The BJC-6000 costs #219.
Also announced was the successor to the BJC-7000, which has now been discontinued. The BJC-7100 is a 1200 x 600dpi device which Canon claims has been optimised to produce the best results on plain paper. The printer delivers speeds of 8ppm in mono and uses a seven colour ink printing system.
New to this model is optional network connectivity, using the Axis PrintPoint 140 BJC server, which allows the device to be networked in environments including Windows, OS/2 and Novell NetWare. The 7100 is priced at #269.
Finally, the BJC-2000 is a compact colour bubble jet which is approximately 30% smaller and lighter than the current BJC-4300 compact model. An optional IS-22 scanner cartridge can be fitted to the device, allowing it to operate as a colour scanner. The device costs #119 and, like all of the new models, will start shipping this week.
