Convenience and versatility are the focus of the four new printers Canon announced today. Taking advantage of all the ways that consumers connect to a printer (cloud, Wi-Fi, smartphones), the Pixma MG4220 Wireless, Pixma MG3220 Wireless, Pixma MG2220, and the Selphy CP900 compact photo printer all entertain new features that encourage creative projects and photo sharing.… Read more
Canon just added three new Pixma-branded printers and one Selphy standalone printer to its line of business and family-friendly devices. This debut also sees the materialization of Canon's new Auto Fix II technology that takes one-click touch-ups to the next level of clarity, correcting many common photos including underexposed pictures or low-light backdrops.
Only the Pixma MP990 ($300) and MP640 ($220) printers will include this new feature, but both are also set up to print wireless (the MP640 has a built-in print server), vibrant photos thanks to Canon's ChromaLife 100 ink system and the additional gray ink tank to enhance black and white snapshots.
Finally, the two Pixmas also include large LCD screens as well as Canon's Easy-Scroll Wheel, which we first enjoyed on the Canon PIXMA MP980.
The Pixma iX7000 business inkjet rounds out the Pixma offering and contains auto duplexing, three paper feed trays, an extra large paper input, and Ethernet connectivity--all of which could help small business increase their printing productivity. The iX7000 will retail at $400.… Read more
It's a very chilly 20 degrees here in New York with a light snow blanketing the floor (which will soon turn into a dirt slushie), but you could've fooled Canon. It just released a new version of its "Selphy" dye-sublimation printer, the CP780. It's designed to connect directly to a digital camera to print anywhere outside the house--a picnic, Easter egg hunt, birthday party, etc.
Tuesday, Canon announced six new printers that are sure to appeal to a variety of users including small- to mid-size business professionals, photography enthusiasts, students, and creative hobbyists.

Last month we reviewed the Canon Selphy CP760, a cute little dye-sublimation printer that won us over with its simple menu, quick prints, and most importantly, its small-ish price tag; $100 is a fairly easy price to swallow for a single function printer, especially when we've got so many inkjet printers that can not only print out similar quality photos, but can also print out text on standard 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch paper! In either case, we were impressed by this little guy's ability to churn out excellent quality prints in a short amount of … Read more
Canon just added two new players to its roster of Selphy portable photo printers: the CP770 and CP760, both heavily marketed to families interested in printing photos directly off their phones and digital cameras. We liked its full-size sibling, the Selphy CP740, so we're looking forward to checking these out.
Let's take a look:

The most notable bells include an upgrade to a 3-inch LCD from the ES1's 2.5-inch model and a redesigned physical interface. Whistles include new photo effects, frames and clip art selections to add at print time.
Since it uses the same combo ink/paper cartridges, it costs the same 28 cents per print. It should also spit out prints in roughly 69 seconds. And like the … Read more
