PIXMA INK EFFICIENT G7070 AND MONOCHROME GM4070

PIXMA Ink Efficient G7070 All-in-One

This multifunction printer combines print, copy, scan and fax functions in a compact body.  A 35-sheet Automatic Document Feeder ensures easy batch scan jobs for home or office which have huge scanning needs.  An Ethernet port and wireless connectivity ensures flexibility in placement anywhere in the office or home environment, while a 2-line LCD panel makes it easy to perform and confirm printer settings.

 

PIXMA Ink Efficient Monochrome GM4070 All-in-One

This unique monochrome printer is built for delivering stacks of black-and-white printed documents, but unlike other single ink designs on the market, it accepts a conventional colour ink cartridge for occasional colour printing when the need arises. When the colour cartridge is removed, the printer snaps back into character as a no-nonsense all-in-one monochrome printer, churning out up to 8,300 black-and-white documents off a single ink bottle refill.  The printer is also equipped with a 35-sheet Automatic Document Feeder for batch scanning or copying demands,

 

Integrated Ink Tank System

The PIXMA Ink Efficient G printers feature integrated refillable ink tanks to deliver a small footprint.  The front-facing ink tanks are designed with a see-through window so that a user can assess the level of remaining ink visually.

 

New ink bottle design for fast ink filling

A new ink bottle design drains ink readily into empty ink tanks, with no need for squeezing during the refill process. A two-way channel in the ink bottle funnel regulates air pressure intelligently so that ink filling stops automatically once the maximum ink level is achieved.

Pigment black ink formulation has also been improved, delivering a higher optical density when printing on plain papers, so text and fine printed lines show enhanced contrast.

 

Appetite for High Volume Printing

With the Canon Ink Efficient G Series, users will never again have to make the painful choices between quality and quantity. The printers deliver up to 8,300 black-and-white and 7,700 colour1  document pages on a bundled set of four ink bottles, delivering significant cost savings on ink supplies for businesses that need to print frequently and in large volumes.

Vivid 4R-sized photo1 prints eject in just 37 seconds, and the G7070 supports printing of borderless images on glossy papers up to A4 size.

 

Two-Way Paper Feed Design

With front cassette or rear tray feeding options, two kinds of media can be loaded at any time. Users can load ID card sized papers, envelopes, and glossy photo papers in the rear tray, and pack the 250-sheet front cassette with A4 plain office papers for document printing. The front cassette also features a useful monitoring window so that paper supplies can be readied when paper is running low. Both feeding orientations can even be deployed to enjoy up to 350 sheets of uninterrupted printing for very large print jobs.

 

Full Network Compatibility

The versatile PIXMA Ink Efficient printers support Wired LAN and Wireless LAN2, making them suitable for placement anywhere in the office. The printers also support Wireless Direct, allowing direct communication and printing from smartphones without the need for a wireless router.

 

Printing from mobile devices and the cloud

The printers let you print and scan from your iOS and Android mobile devices (smartphone, tablets and laptops) through the Canon Print Inkjet/SELPHY app. The G7070 also supports Apple AirPrint, Mopria and Canon Print Service (Android plugin) for direct printing. Connect to your Facebook and Instagram accounts through the Canon Print Inkjet/SELPHY app or access photos on Dropbox and Google Drive via the Canon PIXMA Cloud Link service. Documents and photos can be printed directly from your social network accounts and other supported cloud services.
