Photo lab quality on the move

The portable PIXMA iP90 utilises Canon’s FINE* print head technology to deliver the photo quality and print speed of a professional desktop printer. Micro-Nozzles ejecting tiny 2pl ink droplets enable a high 4800 x 1200dpi** resolution - for outstanding accuracy and true colour excellence.

Productive print speeds

The PIXMA iP90 prints at up to 16 ppm in mono and 12 ppm in colour. It can also print a 10 x 15cm borderless photo in just 51 seconds, and is the only portable printer capable of producing borderless prints up to an A4 size - making it ideal for photo enlargements.

Wireless printing freedom

The PIXMA iP90 offers IrDA as standard and an optional Bluetooth adapter for convenient, cable-free printing. The capability to print wirelessly from compatible camera phones, PC's and PDA's ensures complete printing freedom. Weighing just 1.8 kg, this ultra compact, portable printer will meet the needs of the most demanding users.

Direct camera printing

The iP90 prints photos directly from any PictBridge compatible digital camera or camcorder - without the need for a PC - giving beautiful borderless prints, anytime and anywhere.

100 years print life

With up to 100 years print life when stored in a photo album, photos can be enjoyed and shared for a lifetime (see "Display and Storage of Photos" for details).

Portability and lasting power

When no mains power is available, Canon's optional Li-ion battery ensures the iP90 still keeps on printing. The space-saving cradle kit supports the printer when not in use, making recharging even easier. An optional car adapter is also available, allowing the printer to be powered from a car's cigarette lighter socket. So everyone can print everywhere.

Windows & Mac compatible

The PIXMA iP90 works with all popular Windows and Mac operating systems, for full flexibility.
