Canon has refreshed its printer and scanner lines with an improved design aesthetic and a number of functional improvements. Three Pixma printers, two of which are classed as "All-In-One" printers, and a CanoScan scanner have been listed by the company as being close to release in stores, with wireless connectivity being the main focal point, besides the redesigns.
Canon introduced a new PIXMA-series high end printer on Tuesday in the MX892 Wireless Office All-In-One (AIO). The printer will connect to cloud and local network services to print or fax documents, including AirPrint, Google's Cloud Print, Picasa Web Albums, and PIXMA Cloud Link services. The printer also offers a number of templates for placing images on stationery and calendars, among others.
Canon has introduced three all-in-one Pixma printers, the MX372, the MX512 Wireless and the MX432 Wireless. The two wireless enabled devices both support AirPrint allowing users to print directly from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The printers are also accompanied by a companion mobile app, Canon Easy-PhotoPrint that is available for both iOS- and Android-based smartphones and tablets and now allows users to print PDFs created directly on the devices, not just photos as previously.
Canon started off the week by introducing a rare printer aimed squarely at pro photographers. The Pixma Pro-1 takes its looks from the DSLRs it's intended to work with, like the EOS-1D X, and focuses on producing "gallery-quality" prints both for pros and for serious hobbyists. It carries 12 inks and can put out large A3+ sized images with a wider color range, at 16 bits per color channel, that more accurately reflects the lighting and scene from the DSLR itself.
Canon U.S.A. has announced three new PIXMA printers, MG4120 Wireless Photo All-In-One (AIO), MG3120 Wireless Photo All-In-One, and the MG2120 Photo All-In-One printers. The MG4120 and MG3120 use 802.11n Wi-Fi for networking, while the MG2120 uses a USB connection. All three printers use Canon's ChromaLife 100 ink system, which uses one black and one color cartridge. Canon claims the new ink system produces better yellows and reds, especially on plain paper. Each of the new printers can produce a full color 4x6 photo in approximately 44 seconds. The MG4120 and MG3120 also can duplex automatically.
In addition to and ahead of the November 3 Hollywood event, Canon will hold one in New York on October 26. The teaser, courtesy of Canon Rumors, reveals both Pixma and EOS logos. As such, it's likely to focus equally on printers and DSLRs.
Canon on Tuesday sent word it had brought AirPrint support (link ready soon) to some of its Pixma printers. Its newest all-in-one photo printers with Wi-Fi, the MG5320, MG6220, and MG8220, can all now take print requests from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch running iOS 4.2 or newer. The "majority" of Canon's inkjets in the future will also get the wireless printing support, Canon said.
Canon has just released two new photo printers with the PIXMA MG5320 all-in-one and the PIXMA iP4920 inkjet. The former lets those who have images uploaded to either the Canon Image Gateway or Picasa Web Albums can print them wirelessly using the PIXMA Cloud Link once the printer is set up on the Wi-Fi network. It sports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) for quickly pairing with compatible devices.
Canon as a prelude to its larger releases next week put out two new photo all-in-one printers and a rare specialized DSLR. Together, the Pixma MG6120 and its MG8120 sibling have a new interface that uses capacitive touch instead of resistive for input. While now very common in phones, it's rare in printers and is touted by Canon as speeding up common tasks.
Canon this morning revealed a trio of photo printers that bring a handful of noteworthy new features. The PIXMA MP560 is Canon's smallest all-in-one inkjet with both Wi-Fi and duplex printing in the same box. It also centers on a second-generation photo correction feature that can adjust for exposure in different areas of a shot as well as brightness and saturation. A new USB port supports printing directly from a flash drive or similar direct storage without having to first sync with a computer.
