Canon is offering users everything but the PC with its latest multifunction devices, which it says will provide photo-quality professional performance.

The SmartBase MP700 Photo and SmartBase MP730 Photo models both combine a photo quality bubble jet printer, digital copier and flatbed scanner. Both also feature two media slots, allowing direct photo card print without using a PC. The SmartBase MP730 also includes a fax modem.

“These new machines are designed to increase productivity, whilst reducing ink wastage through Canon’s Single Ink technology, saving our customers both space and money,” said Michel Sabbagh, marketing manager for Canon Middle East. “They are ideal for advanced home users and professionals who require consistent, high quality photo prints. The output quality of both multifunctionals rivals that of traditional dedicated machines, at a fraction of the cost.”

Performance-wise, the machines offer a very respectable printing and copying speed of up to 22ppm in monochrome and up to 14 ppm in colour, according to Canon’s specs.
They also feature Canon’s new micro nozzle with advanced microfine droplet technology, which helps to deliver a more consistent photo print technology and reduced ink wastage.

Both models can reproduce in A4, 4 x 6 and 5 x 7 photo sizes, with 1200 x 1200 dpi colour and 600 x 600 monochrome copies. The memory slots can accept five memory card types, allowing photo printing direct from a digital camera card.
