Canon MG6821 overview

  • 1Description

The Wi-Fi enabled black/silver PIXMA MG6821 Wireless Photo All-in-One Inkjet Printer from Canon provides 4800 x 1200 dpi photo printing with a two-sided duplex option in a versatile unit that is also capable of scanning and copying. The print system utilizes a 5-color ChromaLife100+ ink setup that works with FINE print heads to produce detailed imagery with drop sizes as small as 2 pl. The MG6821 is also fast with the ability to create a 4 x 6" borderless print in 41 seconds, and can print borderless at sizes up to 8.5" wide.

Scanning is possible through the inclusion of a flatbed capable of handling documents up to 8.5 x 11.7". The MG6821 features an optical scan resolution up to 2400 x 1200 dpi which can be interpolated into a 19200 x 19200 dpi final image. Copying is also available through this flatbed and the printer can produce up to 99 copies at a time. It will also provide users with a first copy out time of 18 seconds.

Viewing and changing settings is simple with the 3.0" touchscreen LCD display on the front panel. There are also SD and Memory Stick Duo card slots available for direct photo printing. And, in addition to Wi-Fi connectivity, the MG6821 features USB 2.0 for direct connection to a computer.

The ChromaLife100+ hybrid five-color ink system features five individual ink tanks with four dye-based inks and one pigmented black ink to produce crisp text and vivid colors. It also works with FINE print head technology to help create borderless photos that will last up to 300 years when placed in archival storage.
Documents can be printed at a rate of 15 ipm in black or 9.7 ipm in color.
Automatic duplex print will automatically print on both sides of the paper to reduce paper usage.
Auto power on conveniently powers up the unit whenever you send a photo or document to be printed.
My Image Garden software lets you access, organize, and personalize your photographs.
Full HD Movie Print allows you to take a still from full HD movie clips captured with Canon cameras and print them.
Quiet mode allows you to work without disturbing others.
PIXMA Printing Solutions app allows you to print and scan photos or documents from compatible mobile devices. You can also use the cloud print function to print directly from select online cloud services at the printer itself or via the mobile device.

    Canon MG6821 reviews

    PIXMA MG6821 Wireless Photo All-in-One Inkjet Printer (Black/Silver) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 150.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! It really works! I've been using this printer in my home for several months and have absolutely no complaints. The quiet printing mode is excellent. Wifi printing is trouble-free. Scanning is quick and easy. Envelopes are a piece of cake. Removing and replacing ink containers is straight forward. While my experience with this printer and photo printing is very limited, but the few I've done (4X6 borderless) are very acceptable. I don't know if all Canon printers are this good, but the PIXMA MG6821 is the best home printer I've ever owned.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not User Friendly For Me I purchased this Printer on sale. I don't print much but I was looking forward to a new scanner. On my past printers , Lexmark,and Epson had displayed an icon(Desktop) of a printer with the top up and a picture on the glass with the words Scan. Cannon has a lot of icons and I had to search long and hard for the scanner because I'm not very good with computers or related items so even after I found it hidden away I'm still having a difficult time trying to get the pictures to go where I want them. I've had 4-printers and never had a problem learning how to get it to work. This Cannon is not user friendly for me. Getting it to print was easy but trying to scan a magazine and then getting it to go into my pictures folder has been an unsuccessful task.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid performance Easy to set up. Software for Mac must be downloaded. Too new to comment on photo printing but typical office-type jobs are quick and crisp. Saving paper with duplex capability. Nice machine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of fun! If you are looking for a printer that can give hours of entertainment, this is a sure bet. Installing and re-installing the printer drivers will help hone your tech skills and make you feel really busy. Running back and forth to the wifi router to press the connect buttons might be enough effort to replace a workout or two. If you alternate calling or online chatting with the help desk at your internet service provider and Canon to try to solve the wifi connectivity issue, you get to interact with people who have exotic sounding names and interesting accents. It is really fascinating to listen they go through the exact steps you told them you already completed to no avail. They might even talk you into rearranging your home so that the printer can be really, really close to the router. Ultimately, this printer does a great job of printing the LAN settings page (B&W only) and the printer cartridge alignment page (in color!) Best part is that neither your Mac nor your Windows computers will even know its there.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far, so good I have used Canon printers in the past, and I had to purchase this one because my last printer was no longer compatible with my new hardware. It prints quickly (once it gets going), and the print quality seems to be good. Keep in mind, I am using this in an office capacity.....I am NOT using it to print photos on photo paper. It is a bit annoying to have to register the type of paper you are using EVERY time, but that process is quick -- only several touches on the touch screen menu. This printer is pretty loud as it is printing. The verdict is still out on the longevity of the ink tanks, as I haven't used it much yet. A basic Canon printer, that gets basic printing done.....with a few minor quirks along the way. So far, so good.....but I still love my old retired Canon Pixma printer better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-in-One Printer with many features I have owned four Canon printers through the years: PIXMA MP830 (Qty. 2), PIXMA MX922 and now the PIXMA MG6821. This recently purchased AIO printer (MG6821) has been a surprise given it's incredible price and functionality. B & H pricing was incredible compared to other stores. This printer has many features. I particularly like the small footprint (size). The MG6821 appears to do the job and has very good software for scanning and is attractive with two colors. It is too premature to say how much ink the printer uses. The paper tray holds a minimal amount of paper compared to my previous Canon business grade AIO printers which have multiple trays. However, this printer is well worth the purchase price. Well done Canon and B & H Photo!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Home Use I use this in my home. It is easy to use and fits fairly nicely on top of my multi-use computer/office desk. I had difficulty with the wi-fi setup, but the Canon help desk got me straightened out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am satisfied with this Printer. I purchased this printer for a backup to my two older Canon printers, which may go at any time. I have used it only to test its performance. Installation was slow, but no issues until I got to the wireless connection. I tried the installation from the net, but had no success. Then I installed from the disc, and had no further issues. I tested the print and scan features, and was satisfied with the printer's performance.
