Canon announced the PIXMA MG8120 Wireless Photo All-In-One (AIO) 802.11n Wi-Fi certified printer with a new Intelligent Touch System improving the overall user experience. In addition to the new Intelligent Touch System, the printer features Full High Definition (HD) Movie Print for capturing memorable moments and other upgrades which will improve functionality and print quality.
The new Intelligent Touch System makes it easier to navigate through menus and perform everyday tasks with back-lit touch sensitive buttons and a new light guidance system eliminating buttons not in use thus reducing opportunities for mistakes. The new Canon PIXMA MG8120 Wireless Photo AIO printer uses the fast and responsive capacitive touch technology which picks up on electricity in the users body when a finger glides across the touch surface designed to provide for seamless navigation through menus and other desired commands.
The new Full HD Movie Print provides consumers with a new alternative for preserving many of those memorable moments which in the past may have been rather challenging to catch. When using compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras, consumers can print individual frames of movies captured from scenes such as a child blowing out a candle on their first birthday cake or of a couple dancing on their wedding day. The days of missing those special moments can now be considered a thing of the past. With Full HD Movie Print consumers can be confident the scenes captured on a camera whether through still or movie capabilities, can be shared for years to come.
The new Canon PIXMA MG8120 Wireless Photo AIO printers will also features the recently upgraded versions of Auto Photo Fix II, Easy-PhotoPrint EX and Easy-WebPrint EX to further enhance the printing experience. Auto Photo Fix II, which helps correct common photo errors, has been improved with enhanced light-source recognition and color-cast correction resulting in an increase in the overall image quality of printed images. With Easy-PhotoPrint EX images can now be searched for and used from Flickr providing further flexibility to consumers interested in printing high-quality photos, albums and stickers from computers without having to launch an internet browser.
Easy-WebPrint EX (Windows® Only) upgrades include a new Fit-to-One-Page button for easy printing of text and images from websites. This button is especially useful for applications such as printing a restaurant's various menus or multi-page articles. This new software will also provide for printing of multiple web page clips in a booklet format for easy handling and improved organization while images can be inserted into the print layouts allowing users to personalize their information even further.
The Canon PIXMA MG8120 Wireless Photo AIO printer generates photo-lab quality results in addition to having unique and easy to use features. With six individual ink tanks, including one which is gray, utilizing the ChromaLife100 + ink system, consumers can produce high-quality color in addition to black and white images at an industry leading maximum color resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi. For users interested in converting older slides and negatives to digital, a built-in Film Adapter Unit has also been included. The Advanced Media Handling options such as Auto Duplex copying, printing and a two-way paper feed can help reduce the amount of time it takes to complete a project as well.
