Additionally, the software provides filter effects such as fisheye, miniature, and toy camera to add creativity to your photos. The software also lets you extract an individual frame from an HD movie clip and print it as an image.

In addition to a standard USB connection, the MG3520 includes a built-in Wi-Fi receiver for printing and scanning. Easily share the printer with other computers on your home network. In addition to wireless printing, the MG3520 features wireless scanning, and network scanning which lets you send scans directly to a network folder.

    I think this printer is a good value for the money. I use it only to print documents, not for my photographs.

    I am a low-tech guy and was almost able to set it up by myself. I stumbled over one step because the directions were not clear. The directions said the fastest way to link this printer to a wireless network was to use the WPS function. However, this only works if your router has a WPS button, which mine does not. (I did not know what WPS meant.) The instruction booklet should point this out.

    After I called Canon tech support, the mystery was solved. I will add that the primary reason I purchased this machine was because of Canon tech support, which in my experience is superior to that of other camera makers.

    During my call, Canon experienced a power outage. Again, I was impressed that within a minute the back-up power was on and my issue was resolved.

    CANON no longer supplies software CD for Apple Macintosh because Apple doesn't make Macs with CD drive. Software needs to be downloaded from Canon website. This model is compatible with Macs only to OSX 10.8. My Mac is ready for an upgrade to OSX 10.9. My new Canon printer will be obsolete! Make sure you check compatibility!
    Canon customer Care representative was a great help. Great price, good quality prints, fair for photos, compact footprints.

    Great Printer Great Price

    Comments about PIXMA MG3520 Wireless Color All-in-One Inkjet Photo Printer (White):

    This printer is great for Apple computers. Once connected by a USB port, it asked if you wanted to download the software and it setup on its own, in just a few minutes. The toner actually went in easy and it printed first and every time. Easiest setup I have ever done. The price can't be beat. It holds an adequate amount of paper. It works fast. As usual B & H had a great search engine and got the printer out very fast. I would like to find a laser printer this easy.

      When I say B&H is FAST, I mean they are fast! First of all, B&H had the PIXMA MG3520 listed the lowest out of all of the online shops. Secondly, they offered literally next day delivery for FREE! I'll be back! Great store and I LOVE my printer -- my office is all white (very modern) and it fits in so well! Can't beat wireless either.

        Now that I've had this printer for a few days I'd like to add two new findings to my previous review:First, my initial finding on system requirements on Apple Macintosh was up to OSX 10.8. Further research revealed that it is compatible with OSX 10.9, which is a relief as I was considering upgrading my OSX to 10.9.Second, I tried scanning. I made a print of a PDF document on this printer, then scanned that print. The printout of the original document gave me an almost identical copy with a very slight degradation. But the scan of the printout came out surprisingly good! I used 200 dpi, in JPEG, the file size is 1MB similar to original PDF, 958KB. It's a bargain!

          Bought this printer because of the brand and low price. I just bought it yesterday and it seems like a solid built unit. Got tired of buying HP all-in-one printers which turn into trash after a few months to a year. Hopefully this brand lives up to it's name. I will give this product a new review as time goes on.

              Great to have a printer/scanner. It is still a little tricky switching back and forth between printing and scanning functions with the wireless configuration. The online manual for the device is not very intuitive-- it would be great if the printer came with a hard copy manual in the box. Other than that, it scans well and the printing quality is pretty good.

              A good printer for a reasonable price.

              Also, if you intend to use the wireless configuration only, you do not need to purchase the usb cable that B&H recommends as "needed to operate the printer" when you're checking out. Though it may be handy when the wireless acts up.

                Looked good in the ad, but experienced a massive paper jam on the second time I used it. Following their recommended procedure for clearing the jam only fed the paper deeper into the printer and I could not clear it. Then decided to return the machine for a refund.
