Canon Releases PIXMA TS All-in-One Printer Lineup


Canon has just revealed a brand new PIXMA series all-in-one printer lineup that is stylish and able to produce high-quality documents and photographs, in stock now at B&H. These compact units offer printing, scanning, and copying, and are perfect for homes and small offices where space and looks are important considerations. Every member of the PIXMA TS series even has Wi-Fi connectivity built-in, ensuring simple integration into existing systems and direct connections to mobile devices.

Starting off with the top-tier PIXMA TS9020, available in red or white, users will be impressed by the speed and quality of all prints its makes. The sleek printer features an outstanding 9600 x 2400 dpi print resolution, which ensures crisp text and sharp imagery while a 6-color ink system, which includes gray, will provide accurate color with smooth gradations. It can print at speeds of 15 ipm in black or 10 ipm in color and offers automatic duplexing for making booklets or saving on paper. This leads us to another major feature: a dual paper-feed system that includes a rear tray and a front cassette, each with 100-sheet capacities and support for legal size paper. Additional media support includes U.S. #10 envelopes and CD/DVD/Blu-ray Discs. There is also support for fine art paper, allowing for the creating of high-quality photographic prints. In addition to printing, an 8.5 x 11.7" flatbed scanner is available with an optical resolution of 2400 x 4800 dpi and 48-bit internal color depth for making vivid, sharp scans and crisp copies.

One of the major highlights of the TS9020 is the connectivity options, especially the integration of NFC for PIXMA Touch & Print, which allows users with compatible devices to just hold their phone or tablet close to the printer and automatically connect and send a document for printing. The standard Wi-Fi and Ethernet networking options also enable compatibility with a variety of mobile printing services, including Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, Mopria, and wireless Pictbridge, and a standard USB 2.0 connection is featured, as well. A large 5.0" touchscreen LCD provides an intuitive method for changing and viewing settings and, thanks to an auto expandable output tray, the TS9020 stays compact when not in use—while always being ready to print.

If this massive list of features seems like overkill for your home, there are still a couple of other options that may be better suited to your needs. The PIXMA TS6020 is one of them, with similar printing, scanning, and copying capabilities but with a more modest list of features, as well as a smaller size. This model is available in black or gray and offers fast 15 ipm black and 10 ipm color printing like its bigger siblings, but with a resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi and a 5-color ink system. This setup allows users to create sharp documents and vivid images. Other differences with this model include an 8.5 x 11.7" flatbed with a 1200 x 2400 dpi optical resolution, a smaller 3.0" touchscreen, and the lack of NFC, an SD card slot, and disc-printing support. Besides these changes, the TS6020 is an exceptionally capable unit with which many home users will be very pleased.

For those who want something super simple, but still stylish and packed with features, the PIXMA TS5020 completes the lineup. Available in black, gray, or white, this unit manages to shrink things down just a bit more. It features 4800 x 1200 dpi print resolution along with print speeds of 12.6 ipm in black and 9 ipm in color. It also offers a rear tray that can hold 100 sheets of paper, uses a 5-color ink system, and is equipped with a flatbed scanner with a 1200 x 2400 dpi resolution. Additionally, it has a 3.0" touchscreen LCD, an SD card slot, with USB 2.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity.


The Canon TS-series AIOs are able to reduce/enlarge a document 25%-400%.

Do any of these printers have the ability to enlage or shrink the document being printed

Will it still print in black if one of the color cartridges is empty? Or will one empty cartridge stop all printing? I have had one in the past that needs all the colors and will not print in just black.



Inkjet printers do periodic cleaning and priming cycles. Every time you power one up, the printer will go through these cycles to ensure the best print quality and keep the nozzles clear. When a cartridge does not have ink remaining, this cycle cannot be performed. If the printer continues to cycle through these with a missing or empty ink cartridge, it will quickly damage the print head. Also on the Canon printers, even if the grayscale option is checked in the printer driver, if the original text is in a color other than black, the PIXMA printer will combine the cyan, magenta and yellow ink tanks together to make a composite black.

Will any of these use just the black cart? I just want it for documents and the scanner.

Hi Rob,

It's possible, but most of these types of inkjets will use a bit of all to get black. If all you want is to print documents and scan I would highly recommend a monochrome all-in-one laser printer. These are usually cheaper per print and faster, and the scanners are going to be just as good as on one of these inkjets. They obviously won't do as good at photos, but if all you want are text documents and limiting imagery this will serve your purposes much better.

Can I feed 80 - 90 lb card stock in the back feed of these new printers without jamming??

Hi Sherry,

Unfortunately, none of these printers will accept media heavier than 28 lb / 105 gsm.

- when(!) will the TS-9050 be available? - it was on the Canon website more than 5 months ago, and STILL - no dealer has got it in stock.... hmm


Hi Peter,

If you are referring to the TS9020, we have them in stock and ready to ship. Just go to the product page right here.

Great introduction to this new line of printers. The video is helpful. I read somewhere that these have a faster 'startup time' than the previous line. I'm wondering about the amount of time that elapses between when you press Print and when the printer actually grabs the paper and starts printing.  Have you tested this and can you confirm it?  I have an MG7120 and the long "warmup" time is the biggest frustration with that printer.  It sometimes takes 30 - 60 seconds for the 7120 to do a little internal dance before it starts the output.  I would like to have some insight on this if possible before upgrading to the TS9020.  Thank you. 

The Canon Pixma TS-series Wireless Inkjet  All-in-One printers are 50% faster than their predecessors and are ready to print in only six (6) seconds once you have “hit” the print tab and the file is sent over from your laptop, smart phone or tablet. The time it takes for the file to transfer over from the source to printer depends on your connection (wired vs wireless) and file size. 

Did you forget  to include the TS8020 printer? Since its also part of the TS line as well.

Hi Christina,

We didn't forget to include it. The TS8020 is not currently available here at B&H. I do not have any information as to when or if Canon will make this unit available through B&H and so it was left out of this announcement to prevent any confusion that may arise if customers attempt to find it here.

It would be nice to have info on the ink cartridges and typical cost, and how locally available.

Hi Edd. Morris,

All of these printers use the PGI-270/CLI-271 series ink cartridges, which Canon has used in many printers already, meaning availability should be widespread. This set includes a pigment black as well as dye-based cyan, magenta, yellow, and black which are rated for up to 100 years of color stability. Also, the TS9020 uses a gray ink cartridge for smoother gradations, especially in black and white prints. There are multi-packs available as well.
