The body of the printer of a rather impressive size is painted in two colors: top - light gray, bottom - dark gray. The receiving tray is executed collapsible. In a non-working condition it closes an orifice for an output of sheets on a forward board, and for work is throwed off forwards and is decomposed. The access to the printing mechanism for setting or replacement of cartridges is carried out with the help of throwed off up cover closing a central part of the upper board. On center of the upper board are located two buttons and one indicator. The printing is carried out in six paints. In the holder is setting one cartridge that has a modular construction: in body of the print head are installed six inkpots. The given decision allows with exhaustion of any ink to replace an only appropriate inkpot that promotes the most full use of their resource. During testing the driver of version 6.63 was used. Main set-ups of printing allow to point a type of a paper and quality (depending on a used type of a paper choice can vary from one up to four gradation). The options of forced printing in nuances of gray, optimization of photoimages and boundaries of objects are stipulated. Depending on a selected type of a paper vary of set-up of a raster (rough, precise and stochastic). It is possible to involve effects of toning (four ready set-up and choice of any color) and imitation of drawing (four ready set-ups). There are settings of brightness, and also color correction: switched off, ICM and manual. In a mode of a manual correction are possible a slide control on each from four base colors, and also choice of style (exact, bright and automatic) and contrast (light, normal, dark and very dark). Settings of page allow selecting a format and orientation of a paper, to set an amount of copies, to include modes of printing of pages in the return order. The broad possibilities of preparation of the publications are stipulated: - scaling of an image
from 10 up to 400 %; - printing two or four pages of the document on one sheet - printing of the booklet; - printing of the poster; - etc. The total combination of current tunings can be saved as a configuration under any title, to supply it with the text description. The configurations can be saved as files, to delete and to sort. The folder of service functions allows to initiate processes of clearing of the printhead, and also to start printing test images for check of the print head and realization of its calibration. Together with the driver the screen monitor of a condition is installed. In it the window are mapped a title of the printer, used port, current condition of the printer, name of the printed document and title of application, date and time of start on printing, progress - indicator of the active job, amount of the printed pages, and also type of the cartridge, setting in the printer. On a separate folder the level of ink in each from six inkpots is mapped. Quality of printing is very well. On prints executed on a usual paper, it is necessary to mark magnificent detail and at all not noticeable on an eye a raster structure. However images on them look a little pale because of insufficient saturation of colors and a little underestimated contrast. The images are well balanced, but the black color has not enough depth. On prints executed on photographic paper, also it is necessary to mark excellent detail, good balance, the nuances are naturally reproduced. The images have optimum brightness and contrast, the truth, sometimes on prints the small shift of color balance in the party red is swept up. Connection of the printer and installation of the software have not called any difficulties. The indicator maps a condition of the printer: shines green in a ready condition, flashes green during printing. When there is no paper in a tray the indicator flashes by yellow color.
The printing mechanism works very silently, and only moment of grab of a paper is accompanied by a rather loud sound. The loading of the processor during printing reached 100 %, and then changed in limits from 4 up to 8%. Canon BJC S800 has demonstrated high efficiency and exactitude of colors. The software of the printer is worthy of all praises for convenience, flexibility and variety of functionalities. Besides it is necessary to mark a possibility of printing on very dense carriers (up to 500 g/m2) from an additional tray. Take a look at this product. The main advantage of this printer is a quality.
