business and home office users.
WITH DUAL HIGH-SPEED MODES.
For everyday work the S520 offers two very useful print speeds – fast, and
faster. Using a variety of innovations to the motor, paper feed and print
methodology, the S520 delivers up to 12 monochrome and 6 colour pages
per minute (ppm)2 in the standard (default) print mode, and that’s ideal
for high quality reports and external communication.

the S520 is positively blazing thanks to Precision Colour Distribution

Technology (PCDT). This special Fast mode combines many of the best
features of both conventional draft and standard printing
modes, delivering up to 14 monochrome and 9 colour ppm,
with approximately 50% less ink consumption.2

Most draft printing modes use bi-directional printing to print a line with

AUTOMATIC IMAGING TECHNOLOGY.
The driver software incorporates Wide Dynamic Range Colour
Technology to better define half-tones and areas of low colour density. Photo
Optimiser PRO improves hue, brightness and contrast and can automatically
enhance photos shot on a digital camera. Image Optimiser automatically
improves images printed directly from the Internet, which are typically 72 dpi.
The print driver adjusts for this and prints them to the maximum
resolution supported by the printer. The Vivid Photo mode uses the
printer’s four-colour range (compared to a monitor’s three) to greatly
enhance cyan-based tones and improve the fidelity of greens and blues.
Use PhotoStitch to join photos together
for panoramic vistas.
ADVANCED IMAGE MANAGEMENT.
A photo software suite co-developed by Canon Australia is included in
the box and incorporates PhotoRecord, PhotoStitch, 3D-PhotoPrint and
ZoomBrowser EX, so you can print electronic photo
albums, seamless photo panoramas, 3D photo
effects and searchable electronic image libraries.3
PhotoRecord creates
special effects, borders and
background textures.
FULL-BLEED PHOTOS AND GIANT POSTERS.
Now you don’t have to trim prints to remove white borders. The S520
can “overprint” by up to 5mm outside the page area for full bleed printing
on both A4 pages and Glossy Photo Cards. The amount is user-selectable
to control how much image you “lose”. You can also print banners up to six A4
pages long, or create near A0 sized posters by tiling sixteen A4 sheets.

Footnote 1. How to take care of your photos. Documents and photos
printed with ink, especially on plain paper, can always fade. Often this
won’t matter. But to preserve long lasting memories Canon has
developed new High Intensity inks. Used in conjunction with Photo Paper
Pro, in-house testing simulating accelerated conditions shows Canon’s
new inks can retain their light fastness using ISO evaluation criteria
(International Standards Organisation) for up to 25 years.
A copy of the methodology may be obtained from Canon upon request.
But the ISO criteria accept that a certain colour change is
“almost inevitable” as it would also be with some photographic
prints. Thus light fastness is defined as losing no more than 30% optical
density under the accelerated tests. Even then, the 25 years may not be
achieved depending on storing conditions. The expressed number of
years cannot be guaranteed by Canon Inc., and does not apply for paper
fading or durability.
For best results, allow the ink to dry completely after printing. Store your
images in albums, clear plastic folders, or glass frames to avoid open air,
and avoid subjecting them to high temperatures, high humidity, or direct
sunlight. Store them at normal room temperature. (Do not use albums
with self-adhesive pages to store your images, since you will not be able
to remove them later on.)
