Canon today announced some new printer additions. Here is the press release information:

Canon unveils the incredible new PIXMA range – colour and style at your fingertips.
United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland 19th August 2010 – Canon today introduces its new, next-generation range of PIXMA printers, comprising of models that combine sleek and sophisticated designs with superior features and software. With a model to suit everyone – from entry-level to advanced users – the new range is packed with advanced features designed to deliver high-quality prints for a wide range of customers.

The new PIXMA range features some of the most dynamic models in the market, with a sleek, stylish black box design ensuring each stands out from the crowd. With the new Intelligent Touch System, Full HD Movie Print Function and direct Flickr® access from Easy-PhotoPrint EX software all enabling you to increase your creativity, anything is possible. The new PIXMA range does it all in unrivalled style.

Creativity at your fingertips
Top of the range are the new PIXMA MG8150 and the PIXMA MG6150 – two advanced All-In-Ones that combine outstanding design with true ease of use. Boasting a sleek, deep black exterior that adds style to any space, both models come to life when switched on, instantly illuminating the TFT display and a large central control panel that guides users through a simple, step-by-step interface using Canon’s intuitive new Intelligent Touch System.

All models in the new range feature Canon’s groundbreaking new Full HD Movie Print Function, an incredible new software that allows users to print their favourite moments from full HD movie captured on Canon’s Digital SLR range or HD movie captured on Canon Digital Still Cameras. Movie Frame Enhancements guarantee the high quality results, eradicating image artefacts by analysing the frames before and after the picture.

CREATIVE PARK PREMIUM provides access for people using Canon genuine inks to exclusive content from famous local and international artists. This premium content can then be used to design and print albums, calendars and other creative projects.

Canon’s simple-to-use Easy-PhotoPrint EX software is available as standard across the range, encouraging users to be more creative with their favourite images. As well as being able to print photos, calendars, and albums from their own image collection, in-software access to popular photo-sharing site Flickr® allows users to browse, import and print publicly available pictures as they wish.

Get connected
In addition to stand-out style, simple operation and innovative features, the new PIXMA range also offers greater flexibility thanks to integrated Wireless connectivity. Available on selected models, including the entry-level PIXMA MP495, wireless printing allows users to print from a range of Wi-Fi compatible devices instead of just being limited to PC printing. As well as their home computer or laptop, the new PIXMA range also allows users to print directly from a number of devices, including iPhone™, Android™ devices or the PlayStation 3™.

Two steps away from stunning prints
Designed with the user in mind, the revolutionary new range has simplicity at its heart. Quick Operation provides uncomplicated and straightforward functionality that means fewer steps are needed to reach frequently-used features. The start-to-print time is drastically reduced as a result, with users now able to print a photo from a memory card in just two steps.

Premium PIXMAs – blending heritage with innovation
The exciting new PIXMA range takes design and functionality to the next level, but retains market-leading technologies that the PIXMA brand is renowned for. Each model features Canon’s unique FINE (Full-Photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print head technology, producing class-leading minimum 1 picolitre ink droplets on select models to guarantee the highest print quality for documents and photos, with rapid speeds.

Along with innovative new technologies, a selection of classic PIXMA features can also be found in each model, bringing the easy-to-use functionality users already enjoy. Not having lost any of its effortless operation characteristics, the new range ensures – dependent on model – that users can still benefit from Quick Start technology for almost instantaneous action, Direct Disc print, Auto-Duplex printing, self-opening paper trays and Auto Document Fix for easy, crisp and clear document scans.
