A new range of printers from Canon offer a series of ink efficiency features

A new range of Wi-Fi connected printers offer users a range of features which can stave off ink wastage, it has been claimed.

The new models, from global printer and ink cartridge manufacturer Canon, contain individually replaceable ink cartridges, which minimise ink wastage by allowing users to only remove a unit when it is finished, rather than when just one is.

Canon's PIXMA MX870, PIXMA MX350 and PIXMA MX340 also contain an internal memory which allows faxes or other documents to be stored on the printer if it has run out of ink or paper, or to be transferred to a computer via USB.

The all-in-one printers are also part of Canon's ChromaLife 100+ system, which works to combine the manufacturer's photo paper and inks together with their FINE (full-photolithography inkjet nozzle engineering) technology to provide sharp and long-lasting photo prints.

Wi-Fi connectivity also lets users connect the printers to a variety of devices to allow for wireless printing, including iPhones, computers and Bluetooth devices.
