Fish-eye lenses and toy cameras make us all nostalgic for sun-bleached summer days, but they don't always take the best-resolution photos. Today, Canon adds two new Pixma photo printers to its multifunction lineup that let you add fun filters to any digital photo using Easy-PhotoPrint EX software.
PIXMA MG8220 and MG6220 All-in-Ones (AiO) are both optimized for the amateur photographer with features like built-in Wi-Fi for cordless setup, six individual ink tanks for vivid images and cartridge conservation, and Canon's convenient Intelligent Touch control panel that only illuminates the commands necessary for each function.
We got a first glimpse at this feature on the Canon Pixma MG6120 and found it intuitive and easy to use.
Both printers also make use of Canon's HD Movie Print that lets you pull still-frame snapshots out of videos recorded with compatible Canon HD video cameras, like the Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS, just released today.
Finally, Canon's latest print technology, called Cloud Link, helps you pull images and documents to print straight from Picasa or Canon's online Image Gateway repository without ever going back to your computer. You can also download and print templates like calendars, to-do lists, stationary, and more--both printers offer Cloud Link printing out of the box, but you have to have a wireless network setup to access the content.
So what's the difference between the two? The MG6220 will debut at $200 when it goes on sale later this year, but the $100 increase for the MG8220 nets you an additional Film Adapter Unit for converting older and negatives to digital format of your choice, as well as a larger 3.5-inch LCD screen, and auto-duplexing for double-sided printing.
