The Canon S400SP printer is aided by its device driver in implementing the DMT or Drop Modulation Technology for achieving a 1440 x 720 dpi print resolution. With the DMT technology, each nozzle in the print head is able to generate 2 sizes of tiny ink drops. This translates to high performance printing at enhanced speeds using either a black, regular photo or color photo cartridge. This printer can also be used with a 4-color photo cartridge such as Canon’s BC-34e Photo for providing exceptional gradation. This will result in more accurate reproductions of intermediate colors (like skin tones) and pale colors, reduced color bleeding and crisper rendering of extremely illuminated areas. The Canon S400SP printer also utilizes inks that generate more vibrant colors, more clearly detailed blacks, sharper contrast and heightened resistance to fading such as the Canon inks regular color BC-33e and black BC-30e. These ink cartridges both make use of pigment black ink to sharpen the text reproduction and enhance water resistance.

This printer utilizes the Canon Think Tanks systems allowing users to change individual inks instead of getting a complete cartridge every time that an individual color runs out. In addition, the system implements detectors in the cartridge for warning users when the ink levels are decreasing. The Canon S400SP can print at the rate of 4 pages per minute in black and white and 9 pages per minute in color by using the multi-nozzle printing system. This system has photo and color cartridges that employ 48 nozzles for each color and a black cartridge that employs 160 nozzles. This printer can likewise be turned into a scanner with a high resolution of 720 dpi (dot per inch) just by replacing the ink cartridge with an IS-32 scanner cartridge. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon S400SP errors before installing any driver updates.
