Canon announced the affordable and easy-to-use PIXMA MX512 Wireless, MX432 Wireless and MX372 Office All-in-one (AIO) printers that deliver high-quality output whether on plain or photo paper at a maximum color resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi. For the first time in a $150 Canon printer, the PIXMA MX512 Office AIO printer (pictured above) will feature a Dual Function Panel for easy navigation through menus, an Ethernet port for increased connectivity and Auto Duplex printing to help conserve paper usage. This new model also features a 2.5-inch TFT screen for easy viewing of menus and images while producing output at approximately 9.7 ipm for black-and-white documents and approximately 5.5 ipm for color.
With 802.11n Wi-Fi capability, the PIXMA MX512 and MX432 Wireless Office AIO Printer models are capable of a high-speed network transfer rate. Setting up a wireless network can be easily accomplished with the press of one button when using Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).
The PIXMA MX432 Wireless Office AIO printer delivers output at approximately 9.7 ipm for black-and-white documents and approximately 5.5 ipm for color. The PIXMA MX372 Office AIO printer provides output at approximately 8.7 ipm for black-and-white documents and approximately 5.0 ipm for color. All three printers can produce a 4″ x 6″ borderless photo in approximately 46 seconds.
Available for both new wireless models is the Canon Easy-PhotoPrint mobile app, for use with compatible Apple and Android smart phones and tablets, allowing documents to be scanned on the printer and sent directly to a compatible device. Users can print PDFs of documents that were created with the app directly from compatible devices, whereas in the past only photos could be printed.
Canon has developed the FastFront system and an exposed user interface included on all three new printers. Located on the front of the printer, the FastFront system allows users to open the front panel of the printer to easily access both the ink and paper for easy replacement. Each printer utilizes the two-cartridge ChromaLife 100 ink system — one black cartridge and one color cartridge — providing high-quality prints on plain paper, while still delivering high-quality photo prints. With the exposed user interface, the user can scan or copy important documents without having to worry about the document blocking the control panel and buttons required to perform the task.
Full HD Movie Print software has been included on all three models, allowing users to produce clear images of frames from videos captured on compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras. With Easy-PhotoPrint EX software, consumers can unlock their creativity with a variety of fun filter effects such as Fish-Eye, Miniature, Toy Camera, Soft Focus and Blur Background. An added bonus included with these new printers is exclusive printable content through CREATIVE PARK PREMIUM website. The content on this site includes projects users can print to enjoy with their family, such as Eric Carle greeting cards and photo frames as well as calendars to keep track of important business meetings and appointments.
