True 1200 x 1200 dpi in New Printhead Design: The BJC-8200 printer benefits from recent engineering breakthroughs that allow for a revolutionary new printhead design.

This feature, combined with bi-directional printing, results in the industry's fastest photo print speeds to-date -- under one minute for postcards and under three minutes for a full 8x10" print.

Geared for the high-end photo enthusiast or graphics professional, the printer comes with both a parallel and universal serial bus (USB) port for easy interface with your PC, Macintosh G3, G4, iMac, PowerBook, or iBook.
