Canon has subtly redesigned its Pixma multifunction photo printer range. On its new Pixma MG5250 all-in-one photo printer there's a generous 6cm colour LCD control panel and context-sensitive controls on the lid that light up only when relevant to the task being performed.
The Pixma MG5250 model comes with built-in Wi-Fi, USB 2.0 and PictBridge and is print directly from any of nine media card formats or from CD. A CD label printer and adapter is part of the package. Canon Auto Photo Fix II software can be used to make essential corrections before printing.
A new feature, HD Movie Print, provides the option to print stills from high definition video footage to the mix. The Pixma MG5250 has five separate ink tanks and can lay down as little as a single picolitre for the most subtle detail. The scanner, meanwhile, operates at 9600lpi.
The Canon Pixma MG5250 will be onsale from 16 September and cost £149 inc VAT.
