Canon Pixma mini320 printer - Quick Start technology
Having to endure a long wait for a printer to start up is now a thing of the past. The Canon Pixma mini320 Compact Photo Printer features the new Canon Quick Start technology which starts up the user interface in just a matter of seconds, enabling the user to start viewing and printing their photos quicker than ever before. To provide the optimum image quality in a simplified manner, the new Auto Image Fix technology has been engineered. This new technology analyzes images to make sure each scene is optimized when compared with similar scene types such as Portrait, Snapshot, Night Snapshot, etc. For the parent who wants to produce a memorable scrapbook, the Auto Image Fix technology helps to create beautiful images without the hassle of manually editing each individual photo. An optional battery (LK-61 model, estimated selling price $79.99) is available for portable printing from almost any location, enabling parents to print out an image of their child’s tee-ball game while sitting in the bleachers. The estimated selling price of the Canon Pixma mini320 Compact Photo Printer is $179.99.

The Easy-Scroll Wheel user interface will be familiar with consumers who have popular portable digital music players, helping them immediately understand the operations that the wheel controls, including editing and printing. With the improved “NAVI” function, it not only displays the machine’s on-screen guide, but it even navigates the user to the function they desire.

Canon Pixma mini320 printer - ChromaLife100 System
The Canon Pixma mini320 Compact Photo Printer employs Canon's ChromaLife100 system, along with FINE print head technology for long-lasting photo prints. When using select genuine Canon photo papers and dye 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 have up to a ten-year gas fastness when exposed to open air, and up to a 30-year lightfastness when displayed under glass.

Easy-PhotoPrint EX photo printing software is included with the Canon Pixma mini320 Compact Photo Printer and makes printing multiple size prints on a variety of Canon papers a snap.
