The Canon PIXMA MG5220 Wireless Photo All-in-One Inkjet Printer is a printer, scanner and copier - it does it all! It is capable of printing everything - color & B&W photos, sharp, clear copies to beautiful prints from HD movies.

The built-in Wi-Fi interface is provided so you easily print and scan wirelessly, eliminating restrictions on where you can work. Plus, you can print directly from your PictBridge enabled camera, from memory cards via the built-in card reader, USB flash memory devices and even compatible iPhone, iPod touch and Android devices.

With this printer it's like having a photo lab in your home. It yields high resolution (9600 x 2400 dpi) color borderless prints from 4.0 x 6.0" (101.6 x 152.4mm) to 8.5 x 11.0" (215.9 x 279.4mm) and will output a 4.0 x 6.0" photo in as fast as 20 seconds.

Now digital SLR and point & shoot cameras are equipped to capture HD movies and the problem of missing a still photo opportunity arises. The MG5220 is the solution. With Full HD Movie Print software you can convert those .MOV movie clips from a compatible Canon DSLR or PowerShot point and shoot camera into beautiful photos.

The MG5220 operates with Canon's Hybrid Ink System consisting of five individual ink tanks, which includes four dye-based inks to produce amazing quality color photos and a black pigment ink for crisp and clear documents. Images are previewed on a 2.4" (61mm) color LCD display so you see what you are printing. While an image is on the display you can engage Auto Photo Fix which applies accurate image color balance and contrast, or Auto Document Fix which delivers beautiful, easy-to-view scans corrected to yield clear and sharp text.

Built-in automatic two-sided duplex printing allows you to print on both sides of the paper and can help reduce your paper usage by up to 50% and provides you with added creative opportunities.
