Apart from making copiers, printers, cameras and computers? Or one of those?

ROFL! Well heck, it only seems fair. Considering how difficult it is to buy a cel phone without a camera, it's about time that cameras came with cel phones.

Are you referring to the ImagePRESS line? They say it has especially fine toner grains (average particle size of 5.5 microns) and an extra-wide gamut.

They claim it has sharp text and image details, smoother gradations — image quality comparable to offset. I have not seen the beast, but hard to avoid reading about it. (Nor do I have a clue as to sheet size or price.)

If not, you need to be more specific.

Sorry Kathleen I was in a print related thought process. I have heard that they have developed a super dupper machine - which Kodak may rebadge. Entry cost abut $200K - $250K

Canon have been lagging behind Xerox in recent years in the professional design and print market, and this range is one of their new products designed to bring the company back in.
