£79.99

The Canon Pixma iP4500 is a versatile photo and document printer that offers digital camera owners extra functionality, quality and high speed photo printing. This printer is competitively priced and you certainly get a great deal of printer for your money.

Photo printing
The Canon Pixma iP4500 produces superior quality photo prints with fine detail and smooth colour gradations, thanks to tiny 1picolitre ink droplets and a high 9600x2400dpi maximum print resolution (on suitable media). The 5 Single Ink system includes a dye-based black that brings extra depth and contrast to photos. You can print photos directly from your PictBridge-ready digital camera or camcorder and the Pixma iP4500 can print a 10x15cm borderless photo in as little as 21 seconds in Standard Mode. You can also apply Red Eye Removal, face brightening and more with the image editing software included with the printer.

Document printing
The Pixma iP4500 is also an extremely capable document printer. Print documents perfectly at up to 31pages per minute in mono or 24ppm in colour, single or double-sided. Whether correspondence, business paperwork, homework or web pages, this printer handles it all. Other useful features include automatic double-sided printing which helps cut paper costs and two paper trays to hold photo and plain paper.

Print on CD and DVD
With the iP4500 you can personalise inkjet-printable CDs and DVDs by printing straight onto the surface. Use the CD-LabelPrint software to create exciting layouts by adding text and images.

Single Inks
All 5 Single Ink tanks can be replaced separately, minimising ink wastage and maximising savings. A smart LED light flashes to alert you when a colour is running low or needs replacement.
