High-Resolution Printing and Versatility
The MP460, sporting a high-gloss, acrylic finish, enhances productivity, maximizes home office space and adds a dash of photo fun to the workflow. With ink droplets as small as two picoliters, and resolution as high as 4800 by 1200 color dots per inch (dpi), this photo printer can print 4 x 6 inch borderless photo-lab quality prints with dry-to-the-touch precision in just about 52 seconds. It also offers print speeds up to 22 pages per minute (ppm) and color speeds of 17 ppm. There's no need to worry about complicated operating instructions to achieve these excellent results because direct printing is a snap thanks to memory card slots and PictBridge capabilities for fast and easy PC-free printing. The MP460 also delivers fast copying speeds of 22 copies per minute (cpm) in black-and-white and 17 cpm in color. In addition, it can copy a 4 x 6 inch borderless photo in approximately 57 seconds. The convenient scanner delivers 1200 by 2400 dpi (optical) and 19,200 by 19,200 dpi (interpolated) resolution, as well as a 48-bit internal color depth for vivid images.
To improve copying and scanning performance, the MP460 is equipped with Canon's state-of-the-art Z-Lid technology, which allows users to lift the scan lid approximately one-inch over a three-dimensional object for easy scanning, even with bulkier items such as personal notebooks. For added convenience, the 1.9-inch color LCD display lets you enhance images before you print for better pictures. Plus, you can print from your computer, or direct from memory cards, cameras, Bluetooth devices, and even camera phones.
Dual Color Gamut Processing
The MP460 employs advanced copy technology to help give you amazing reproductions of original images and documents. Dual Color Gamut Processing Technology improves color accuracy by independently controlling brightness, hue, and other elements to make sure that there are minimal differences between the original and the copy. In addition, with Text and Image Separation Technology, the system can actually differentiate text from an image, making black text and fine lines darker and sharp. Now when black text appears over an image, the text on the following generations of copies can be virtually as clear as the first. These technologies plus hardware improvements in scanning and printing can help make a copy almost indistinguishable from the original.
The MP460 AIO uses the Canon ChromaLife100 system, including the FINE print head technology for great photo printing. When using select genuine Canon photo papers and inks, prints can resist fading for up to 100 years when stored in an archival quality photo album. The 100-year-lifespan rivals that of many traditional film based photos, long considered by consumers to be the benchmark for image permanence. Prints produced on Canon Photo Paper Pro with ChromaLife100-compatible inks have an up to 10-year gas fastness when exposed to open air. In addition, ChromaLife100 prints, when created using genuine Canon photo paper like Photo Paper Pro or Photo Paper Plus Glossy, have up to 30-year light fastness when displayed under glass.
FINE Engineering and the Inkjet Nozzle
Launched globally by Canon in 1999, the Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) advanced print head technology is one of the keys to the impressive speed and high photo quality in Canon PIXMA photo all-in-one printers. Canon FINE uses a groundbreaking high-performance multi-nozzle print engine that ejects consistent and microscopic ink droplets. The results are high-resolution photos with detail and clarity in less time.
The MP460 comes with a one-year limited warranty.
