Canon was showing off their cameras and printers that have earned the Compatible with Windows 7 Logo at their CES booth. Mark stopped by to chat with Lisette Ranga and Nicole Centrone from Canon. They also discuss how their cameras and printers take advantage of Device Stage. Check out the video:
I recently had a chance to check out their PIXMA MP990 printer. What’s great about having printers such as the MP990 support Device Stage is that all that you need for all your printing and scanning needs are all on one screen. It’s a one-stop-shop for managing your printer.
The PIXMA MP990 also supports Jump Lists in Windows 7 too!
Special thanks to Canon for giving me the chance to check out the MP990.
I love device stage. Its something that should have been in windows a long time ago.
More urgent than Windows 7 support is 64-bit driver support. I found my 2009-purchased Canon laser printer requires me to keep one computer at 32-bit to use.
The printer had been listed by Microsoft as 64-bit compatible. Guess what, it wasn't. No Canon 64-bit drivers available.
My Canon Pixma MP830, that had been on my old 32bit Win XP machine, installed on my new Sony 64bit Win 7 machine without problems. All modes function, Print-Fax-Scan-Copy.
