On Tuesday, Canon released two new Pixma multifunction printers, the Pixma MG8120 and the Pixma MG6120. Both printers showcase two enhancements to Canon’s Pixma’s line.
The first enhancement is called the Intelligent Touch System, which is implemented through the MG8120 and MG6120 control panels. The control panel uses touch-sensitive buttons, and only the buttons you need to use light up. Canon says this should make the devices quicker and easier to use, and minimize mistakes.
The second enhancement is called Full HD Movie Print. This feature works only with selected Canon EOS digital SLR cameras, or PowerShot point-and-shoot cameras that support HD video recording. Full HD Movie Print allows you to select a frame from a recorded HD video and print it. You can also apply noise reduction to the selected frame so the print doesn’t appear grainy, and resolution enhancement makes lines look smooth, not jaggy.
Both the Pixma MG8120 and Pixma MG6120 use six individual ink cartridges and prints at a maximum color resolution of 9600 by 2400 dots per inch (dpi) and a maximum monochrome resolution of 600 by 600 dpi.
The Pixma MG8120 has a color flatbed scanner that has a maximum optical resolution of 4800 by 9600 dpi. The MG6120’s color flatbed scanner has a maximum resolution of 4800-by-4800.
The Pixma MG8120 is $300, while the Pixma MG6120 is $200. Both devices include a one-year limited warranty.
