Premium Photo Printing with High Speed Performance.
Step up to a powerhouse printer. Looking for an unbeatable combination of blazing speed and high resolution? The PIXMA iP5200 Photo Printer can produce a beautiful photo lab quality 4" x 6" borderless print in about 36 seconds1. Plus, its USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface enables the fastest photo transfers possible from your computer2. This is one super-charged printer.
Exceptional performance doesn't stop there. The iP5200 photo printer delivers an amazing resolution of up to 9600 x 2400 color dpi3, for detail and clarity unmatched by comparable printers. To achieve this, Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a next-generation 3,584-nozzle print head that ejects precise, consistent droplets as small as 1 picoliter. Your images will be smooth and virtually grain-free. Also, the ContrastPLUS 5-color ink system - four dye-based inks and a pigment-based black ink - produces true-life photos with a wide color palette, along with laser-quality text.
Want to print directly from your PictBridge compatible digital camera or DV camcorder? It does that, too - just connect and print! This PC-free process saves time and eliminates the need to be tied to your computer. And if needed, the iP5200 photo printer will even brighten subjects' faces automatically, for better results when printing direct.
2 paper paths, smart paper handling. The iP5200 photo printer provides you with smart printing options built-in. The dual paper path allows you to keep photo paper stored in one tray and plain paper in the other, so you can print photos or documents without having to switch paper. To save paper, you can print 2 sided using the auto sheet feeder or the paper cassette. You can even create 2 sided photos using Canon Photo Paper Plus Double Sided in 5 x 7 and 8.5 x 11 inch sizes.
A system for long lasting photos. The Canon ChromaLife100 system combines the PIXMA iP5200 Photo Printer's FINE print head technology and newly developed inks with select Canon photo papers, with results rivaling that of many conventional photos. These beautiful photos will also last up to 100 years when stored in an archival quality photo album4.
