Right out of the box, the new Canon G series includes enough ink to last years for most users, delivering up 7700 color pages or 7600 black pages on economy mode. This presents an easy choice for users who need to print more without hesitation and has the potential to transform traditional printing habits completely.
The printers are suitable for general use or photo printing, with the dedicated use of pigment black ink for crisp and sharp text in text documents and line drawings, and automatic switching to only dye-ink color channels when there is a need to produce full-borderless glossy photos up to A4 sizes.
To avoid unintended filling of colored inks into the wrong tank openings, the new Canon G series features new ink bottle designs, with outlet nozzles that fit only in the respective color tank well openings. Ink filling is fast, drip-free, and hands-free, allowing users to complete the entire unboxing and setup process in just minutes while maintaining a mess-free workstation.
An integrated ink tank design also keeps the printer footprint compact, while providing a clear visual indication of remaining ink levels.
The user-replaceable maintenance cartridge design of the new Canon G series will also save users numerous trips to authorized service facilities.
