Canon PIXMA iP2702 Printer
The stylish and affordable machine for home photo printing
Cameras, Colour and Photos. Yes- that is what you are thinking when you hear of Canon. There is no wonder that this household name has built up such an enviable reputation, with excellent knowledge in imaging services, Canon deliver true excellence in all things print, every time.
With the Canon PIXMA iP2702, you can be rest assured that it will actually add a stylish touch to any workstation. The smart black textured outer face of the printer, along with the glossy smooth back of the paper tray makes the machine look elegant and contemporary, making it an ideal purchase for home users.
The PIXMA iP2702 is a fully comprehensive printer with simple yet effective technology. At just 445 x 250 x 130mm, the iP2702 is a well designed, compact device, delivering hassle-free printing. Unlike an ordinary printer with a paper tray, the PIXMA iP2702 has no catchment device which means paper will be fed straight through. This is a novel and unusual design which makes you ask why output trays are normally featured on a printer. The printer has been stripped of additional features such as the tray, scanner and fax which some users may not need to utilise.
The iP2702 delivers 2pl ink droplets and 4800 x 1200dpi resolution producing lab-standard quality prints time after time. Not only is this printer great for photos, but black and white printouts are also crisp, clear and bold.
The simple Canon PIXMA iP2702 simply connects to your PC device with a USB connection, along with a standard power cable. If you want all the latest ‘mod-cons’ then the PIXMA iP2702 doesn’t deliver desirable functions such as wireless technology or touch screen settings, but, it will look the part, and satisfy your essential day-to-day printing needs.
WebPrint Ex software is included with the printer which is economical and easy to use, allowing you to save paper and make use of a clipping service that allows you to organise and edit photos to meet your bespoke requirements.
The iP2702 has the ability to deliver multiple dimension prints, including the standard 10 x 15cm photo size. The 10 x 15 prints are precise and borderless, taking on average only 55 seconds to complete, consistently producing wonderful photos.
Buying compatible inks for the iP2072 is easy, there are four cartridges to choose from, two black and two colour (CMY included). The black PG-510 (9ml) and the PG-512(15ml) cartridges help deliver solid and accurate printouts suitable for professional use, which at an affordable price, are ideal for budget conscious users. The PH-512 has almost double the amount of ink in the PG-510, which would make a much smarter purchase if you are using the printer for black and white printing.
The CL-511 and the CL-513 colour ink cartridges both contain the cyan, magenta and yellow inks. These intelligent cartridges contain ChromaLife100+ ink which, if used together with Canon photo paper, will create ultra long lasting photos that will stay fade free. In fact, it has been estimated that the prints have the ability to last for up to 100 years! The combination of the two improved technologies prevents any case of fading including light, extreme temperatures, environmental gases and extreme humidity.
