High-quality printing at home with Canon’s expanded MegaTank range is ideal for, students, those working flexibly from home, or printing for a family.
During the recent launch of the latest printers, Canon announced the expansion of its MegaTank range, with four new fast, high-quality, refillable ink tank printers.
Key features across the range include high-yield easy-to-refill ink tanks, fast print speeds, high-quality prints and streamlined interfaces making the printers easy to use.
According to Canon, the new MegaTank printers include a range of capabilities, including:
PIXMA G4470: a high-speed 4-in-1 printer with an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), with WiFi
PIXMA G3470 Series: a 3-in-1 multifunction printer (MFP), with WiFi – available in three colors
PIXMA G2470: a 3-in-1 MFP
PIXMA G1430: a single-function model
Also, the updated range features four cost-effective printers – capable of producing high volumes of quality documents and photos without the worry of having to change ink cartridges.
“Anchored by a continuous ink supply system, running costs are streamlined in comparison to cartridge-based printers.”
All four models can produce 6,000 sheets from a single black ink bottle with 27 percent more in economy mode (7,600 sheets).
For printing in color, the latest MegaTank models offer an impressive page yield of up to 7,700 pages from a set of color ink bottles and 8,100 in economy mode.
They are ideal for busy families wanting a cost-effective printer that delivers high-quality prints when needed.
The printers use both pigment-based and dye-based ink allowing for sharp black text and vibrant, colorful images.
All four models in the range deliver fast printing speeds of 11.0 ipm for black (mono) printing and 6.0 ipm for color – quicker than the printers’ predecessors.
“Reliable and speedy printing means users can focus their time and energy on other creative outputs, printing with confidence to deliver high-quality prints in impressive volumes. Producing sharp, crisp prints, the range satisfies a versatile mix of requirements, from productive students who may need to print text-heavy essays, to those embracing home crafts with their families.”
For those working from home, the PIXMA G4470 features a 35-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) to scan and copy multi-page documents quickly, helping to improve productivity.
Featuring a new, easy-to-use design with straightforward functionality, the PIXMA G2470, PIXMA G3470 Series and PIXMA G4470 include LCD panels for operation and easy installation.
With Canon’s MegaTank ink technology, all printers in the series are easy to maintain and use.
Printer downtime is kept to a minimum, thanks to the user-replaceable maintenance cartridge alongside the mechanical ID no-squeeze ink bottles.
The WiFi-enabled PIXMA G4470 and PIXMA G3470 Series models allow users to effortlessly connect thanks to compatibility with Apple AirPrint and Mopria® for Android, as well as the Canon PRINT app for printing from your smart device.
In addition, for those looking for creative inspiration, Canon’s Creative Park allows users to unleash their inner artist by making 3D paper crafts, as well as personalized cards – with the ability to print on magnetic and matte photo paper, across the range.
The PIXMA G3470 Series is available in three color variations: black, white and red.
