Leading imaging firm Canon has today released three new printers in the East African region under its newly formed “Canon Central and North Africa (CCNA)” business division.
The printers– PIXMA G1400, PIXMA G2400 and PIXMA G3400 – are capable of printing up to 7,000 colour and 6,000 black pages from a single set of ink bottles.
The PIXMA G3400 also comes with an extra black ink, hard bundled in its packaging which allows it to print additional 6,000 black pages bringing the total black pages it can print to 12,000 The three printers are ideal for Home usage, Retails, educational institutions and offices.
Featuring Canon’s brand new genuine Continuous Ink Supply System (CISS), each printer uses refillable ink tanks to offer volume printing that significantly reduces ongoing ink expenditure. This atomically kicks out the usage of cartridges.
