Canon Announces Two New PIXMA Printers

Share

Canon has announced two new wireless photo inkjet all-in-one printers as part of their PIXMA MG line. The PIXMA MG7120 is a versatile, high-performance color inkjet printer with a maximum color print resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi and scan resolution of 2400 x 4800 dpi. It’s able to produce sharp, borderless photo prints and documents up to 8.5 x 11”.

The FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print technology with a print head firing 1pl-sized ink droplets, combined with Canon photo papers, will create enduring photo prints. With a gray ink included in its six-ink-tank system, black-and-white photos emerge crisp and detailed, and a pigment-based black ink produces exceptionally sharp text. The individual-tank system means that any one of the six ink tanks can be removed and replaced without disrupting the other tanks.

The MG7120 is fast and easy to use, with numerous connectivity options including built-in Wi-Fi and cloud links. The free PIXMA Printing Solutions app lets you print and scan photos and documents from your mobile device and AirPrint enables printing from iOS devices with just a simple tap; no software, drivers, or cables needed. With the cloud printing function you can also print directly from select popular online cloud services, such as Picasa Web Albums, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, and Dropbox, either at the printer itself or with your mobile device. Of course, printing via memory cards, Hi-Speed USB, Ethernet, and PictBridge is also supported. In terms of speed, the MG7120 is rated to print documents and web pages with black ink at 15 images per minute and a 4 x 6” borderless photo in 21 seconds.

With its advanced media-handling capabilities, the MG7120 allows you to print on CDs and DVDs as well as load paper into the front of the printer and automatically print on both sides of a page without the need to turn it over manually. Its 3.5" Touchscreen LCD lets you easily view, select, and edit your images for simple computer-free printing, while the Intelligent Touch System allows you to effortlessly operate the printer via its backlit buttons.

The MG7120 also offers Auto Power On, a convenient feature that automatically powers up the printer whenever you send a photo or document to be printed, and Quiet Mode lets you print anytime without worrying about disturbing those around you. The PIXMA MG7120 comes with My Image Garden software that puts all your favorite printing features, such as Fun Filter Effects, Full HD Movie Print, and Automatic Layout Suggestions in one convenient software application. The PIXMA MG7120 is available in black and white finishes.

The PIXMA MG5520 is an advanced wireless photo inkjet all-in-one printer with a smart design and convenient features. The MG5520 can print on media up to 8.5 x 11” and offers 4800 x 1200 maximum color dpi with 2pl technology. FINE print head technology combined with select Canon papers and the 5-color ink system, consisting of four dye-based inks, create professional-looking photos. The individual ink tank system with the Snap Edge feature allows you to replace only the empty tank, leaving the others in place. A 2.5" LCD screen lets you preview your images before you print, and correct your photos with Auto Photo Fix II. Like the MG7120, the MG5520 also offers Auto Power On, Built-in Auto Duplex printing, Full HD Movie print, Auto Scan Mode, Quick Start, and Quiet Mode.

The hybrid ink system combines dye ink for vivid colors and black pigment ink for sharp text. Black print documents and web pages print as fast as 12.2 images per minute. A 4 x 6” borderless photo will print in approximately 44 seconds.

The MG5520 provides cloud service printing and features the convenience of the PIXMA Printing Solutions app, which lets you print photos and documents from select online cloud services and your mobile device. AirPrint allows wireless printing from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and the printer’s built-in Wi-Fi enables printing and scanning from any place your signal reaches. The included My Image Garden software offers Fun Filter Effects, Full HD Movie Print, Automatic Layout Suggestions, and other features, and gives you access to Creative Park Premium to download creative projects and content. The MG5520 is available in black and white finishes.

How much does it cost to replace a set of ink cartridges? Better stock up on that grey ink.

Hi Pete -

A selection of Canon CLI-251xx ink cartridges may be found on our website:  http://bhpho.to/1daAnEV

Please contact us via e-mail if you have additional questions:  AskBH@BandH.com

Yes, but can it print TRUE black colors when printing to borderless? I've found Canon printers firmwares don't allow for that which makes them useless to Designers.

These are printers meant for home applications, and would render blacks decently for a consumer based printer. Though, if you need something that will render blacks truly accurately, you would need to look at something like the Canon PIXMA PRO-100.

Will this printer print on products like Avery labels and cards?

Both the Pixma MG5520 and Pixma MG7120 can print on products such as Avery labels and cards, yes.
