8-color printing for professional results
The PIXMA iP8500 Photo Printer features the Canon 8-color ChromaPLUS ink system for richer, more true-to-life color reproduction that will satisfy even the most demanding photographer. Its addition of red and green ink tanks expands the color spectrum to a level achieved only by professional printers and the difference is vividly clear. Plus, Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a high-performance print head with an amazing 6,144 nozzles, ejecting precise, consistent droplets as small as 2 picoliters. The result? Richer images with improved brilliancy rivaling that of positive film. Your images will come to life as never before.
This feature-rich printer even lets you print without a computer: simply connect any PictBridge compatible1 digital camera or DV camcorder, and print! You can also produce edge-to-edge true borderless photos in 4" x 6", 5" x 7" and 8.5" x 11" in. sizes, with the look and feel of traditional photographs. How fast? Thanks to those 6,144 nozzles, a 4" x 6" borderless print takes approximately 21 seconds.2 Plus its USB Hi-Speed interface enables fast data transfers from your computer, reducing total print time.
Canon Think Tank System
This unique system, with its eight individual ink tanks, lets you replace only the color that runs out, rather than an entire cartridge containing unused ink. Plus, a unique low-ink sensor alerts you when ink levels are low, so you are prepared to just drop in a new tank as needed. Bottom line: more efficient printing with lower costs.
Advanced paper handling
With a dual paper path, you can print 2 sided or just keep photo paper stored in one tray and plain paper in another. You're always ready to print - no paper switching required.
