United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland 23rd August 2011 – Canon has today announced the launch of two new Premium All-In-One printers, ideal for passionate photographers. With a range of advanced features, the PIXMA MG6250 and PIXMA MG8250 offer photolab-quality printing at impressive speeds, along with a range of innovative software, to help get the best out of photos.

With sleek designs and enhanced connectivity, including access to the new PIXMA Cloud Link and printing enabled from mobile devices, the new printers are intelligent and easy-to-use, while still achieving the necessary image quality. The flagship of the new range, the PIXMA MG8250, also incorporates a stylish EOS-inspired design with a matte black finish.

Easy operation
The PIXMA MG6250 and PIXMA MG8250 are operated via Canon’s unique Intelligent Touch System providing easy-to-follow operation with a light guided touch panel. The interface lights up to assist navigation and shows the user which functions are currently available. The inclusion of Quick Operation on both models means a large selection of features can be accessed quickly and easily. Users of the PIXMA MG8250 can also make use of a 35mm film scanner which is integrated into the top cover of the model, easily producing professional quality prints straight from 35mm negatives and mounted slides, at up to 4800 x 9600 dpi.

Effortlessly beautiful prints
To deliver premium quality, the new models feature Canon’s FINE print head with minimum 1pl droplet and up to 9600dpi print resolution. A 6-ink system in both the PIXMA MG6250 and PIXMA MG8250 includes a Pigment Black and individual Dye Black, Magenta, Cyan, Yellow and Grey ink tanks which produce grain free, smooth colour photos. The additional grey ink also ensures professional quality monochrome prints and the models can produce a 10x15cm borderless photo in approximately 20 seconds.

Enhanced connectivity
The PIXMA MG6250 and PIXMA MG8250 bring advanced connectivity, allowing access to internet content directly from the printer. The PIXMA Cloud Link means users can print photos directly from their online albums using CANON iMAGE GATEWAY (where available and Google’s Picasa. The printers also give direct access to a wide range of printable templates, such as stationary and calendars, so photographers can get creative with their images.

Users can also print on the go from their mobile device using Google Cloud Print2 (Service available from end of November 2011 (TBC)) and the new Canon Easy-PhotoPrint App (for iOS and Android devices) allows photo printing and scanning directly to the mobile device.

To enable photographers to do more with their images, an innovative range of software and technologies have been added to the PIXMA MG6250 and PIXMA MG8250, including Full HD Movie Print and Easy-PhotoPrint EX – which have now been updated to allow even more creativity.

Full HD Movie Print means treasured moments can be captured and printed as stills from full HD video footage captured on Canon’s range of Digital SLRs or Canon Digital Still Cameras. Creative effects can now be applied to these images, including Merge Frames, where multiple frames can be combined to give a sense of motion to the printed photos. Layout Print also lets users select a small movie clip and use a comic-strip effect to print a storyboard, making a great birthday or Christmas gift.

Easy-PhotoPrint EX software lets users unleash their creative side on their favourite images by offering templates, and creative effects for printing photos, calendars and albums. It now also comes with Fun Filter Effect, which allows users to select photos and apply fun and artistic image effects, including Blur Background, Fish-eye, Soft Focus, Miniature and Toy Camera.
