Canon MG6120 overview

  • 1Description

The high-performance Canon PIXMA MG6120 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer is the go to device for wireless printing and scanning everything from homework, recipes, reports, content for scrapbooks and your HD movies at home and your pamphlets, promotional pieces and letters for the office.

The built-in WiFi interface allows you to easily print and scan wirelessly, eliminating restrictions on where you can work. A wired LAN interface lets you connect to a home or office network for sharing with multiple computers. 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 x 6" (101.6 x 152.4mm) to 8.5 x 11" (215.9 x 279.4mm) and will output a 4 x 6" photo in as fast as 20 seconds. The MG6120 incorporates Canon's Intelligent Touch system control panel which makes print, scan and copy functions a breeze. You select the feature you need, and only the required touch buttons light up to guide you to make it happen.

With the development of more and more digital cameras with HD movie capabilities, the problem of missing a still photo opportunity arises. The MG6120 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 MG6120 operates with Canon's Hybrid Ink System: six individual ink tanks to produce high quality images. The ink system includes five color dye-based inks for amazing color photos; one pigment black ink to create crisp and clear text. Adding to the performance of this machine are Auto Photo Fix which applies highly accurate image color balance and contrast, and Auto Document Fix delivers beautiful, easy-to-view scans corrected to yield clear and sharp text.

Built-in automatic duplex (two-sided) 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.

Note: Phone printing requires Canon Easy-PhotoPrint for iPhone app, available for free on the App Store, or Canon Easy-PhotoPrint for Android app available for free in the Android Market. Compatible with iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, iPod touch and Android devices running Android OS 1.6 or later.
