Canon has launched their first set of printers in the ink tank category by launching four new printers in the Pixma G series. The ink tank type printers have been available from the likes of HP and Epson and Canon has joined the list with the Prixma G 1000, Pixma G 2000, Pixma G 2002 and Pixma G 3000. As the name suggests, these printers come with improved capacity to print thanks to the bigger independent ink tanks.
The Ink Tank Printer is a Regular Inkjet printer with an additional ink tank is situated in separate places other than printhead which helps in placing bigger ink tanks to increase the printing capacity. This helps in controlling the wastage of ink which is caused due to head-cleaning cycles as the ink tanks can be refilled even while the printer is being used.
