Technology website Cnet reports on the launch of Canon’s Pixma MG4220 Wireless, Pixma MG3220 Wireless and Pixma MG2220 all-in-one printers, as well as the Canon Selphy CP900 portable photo-printing kiosk.
The printers are aimed to “encourage creative projects and photo sharing”, with the Pixma devices featuring photo organisation tools and project templates, Canon’s “Print Your Days” app allowing access to Facebook, and HD Movie Print that enables users to print high-definition snapshots from compatible Canon video cameras.
The printers are also Wi-Fi enabled to allow users to print from any device using Google Cloud Print, with the Pixma MG4220 also including Canon’s Cloud Link so that users can collect, organise and print their online photo albums using services such as iMage Gateway and Picasa.
The Canon Selphy CP900 portable printer, a smaller design at 7×5 inches, “uses dye-sublimation ink technology to heat transfer images onto Canon’s proprietary paper” or onto greeting cards, postcards or 2×3 inch credit cards.
Pricing varies from printer to printer, with the Pixma MG4220 costing $130 (€106), MG3220 costing $80 (€65), MG2220 costing $70 (€57) and the Selphy CP900 costing $100 (€82).
