Canon Introduces Five Pixma Photo Printers
Canon announced the addition of five Pixma printers with a new Full
High Definition Movie Print feature. In addition to this technology,
the new models will feature improvements to Auto Photo Fix II to
further enhance photographs while Easy-PhotoPrint EX software now
allows users to search and use images from Flickr. Now when using the
Full HD Movie Print with compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital
cameras, consumers can print individual frames of movies.
The MG5220 and MP495 Wireless Photo All-in-One printer, MG5120 and
MP280 Photo All-in-One (AIO) printers along with the iP4820 Inkjet
printer also offer many improvements, including Easy-WebPrint EX
software upgrades and a Fit-to-One-Page button for easy printing of
texts and images from Websites, useful when printing driving directions
so both the map of the area and the step-by-step directions are on one
page. The software will also provide printing of multiple documents
into a booklet format, while images can be inserted into the print
layouts allowing users to personalize their information.
Featuring five individual ink tanks with the ChromaLife100+ ink system,
the MG5220 Wireless Photo AIO Printer ($149.99) has a maximum color

The MG5120 Photo AIO Printer offers a maximum color resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi and the MP280 Photo AIO Printer offers a maximum color resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi. The MG5120 also features the same Advanced Media Handling options as the MG5220 AIO Printer, which can help users reduce their use of paper.
