Canon Adopts Ink Tank System in New “MegaTank” Printers
Ink cartridges are a racket and we all know it. It’s the not-so-hidden cost of buying an ink jet printer. The makers of these “affordable” machines love to discount the hardware price to hook you on a recurring cycle of buying the outrageously expensive ink cartridges.
When Epson announced a new ink tank system back in 2015, we saw a glimpse of what was to come (for the better, perhaps). And now, Canon has joined the party in typical Canon fashion with not one, but four new ink jet printers that use a new ink tank system instead of the tiny cartridges. [Read more…]

Canon Announces 3 New Wireless Printers
Canon has added three wireless printers to its PIXMA All-in-One inkjet printer line – the PIXMA MG7520, MG6620, and MG5620 printers. Each of the new models works will Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint web app for cloud-connected printing. Additionally, the PIXMA Printing Solutions app allows users to print from popular social platforms and services like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Photobucket, Dropbox and Evernote.
The top-end MG7520 offers a 3.5″ LCD touchscreen and includes Active NFC, which allows users with compatible Android devices to print by touching the device to the printer. The MG6620 offers Passive NFC that allows similar functionality if the device is connected to the same network as the printer.
The PIXMA MG7520, MG6620, and MG5620 printers retail for $199.99, $149.99 and $99.99.
Canon Unveils PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100 Printers
Alongside the new full frame EOS 6D, Canon unveiled a pair of new printers – the PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100.
These new models are built in the same vein of the flagship PIXMA PRO-1 that was released last fall. The new PRO-10 and PRO-100 feature a new “PRO Mode” that maps color gamut for optimum balance of brightness and saturation.
According to Canon this PRO Mode “helps adjust colors by taking into consideration the characteristics of human perception. The technology helps to create prints that accurately reflect the image as seen on a monitor without needing a high level understanding of color management.” Canon says that this PRO Mode should also be available as a firmware upgrade to the PIXMA PRO-1 in early 2013.
The PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100 will retail for $699 and $499, respectively, when they hit the market (no word yet on when specifically that will be).

Canon 1D X Hands-On
I spent a few hours at the Canon EOS & PIXMA event this evening. The core of the event was promoting the new PIXMA PRO-1 and the fact that it was built in conjunction with the EOS camera system – to take full advantage of what these cameras are capable of. Seeing several of the large prints from the PIXMA PRO-1, it’s clear that this new printer delivers on the quality. The bigger attraction for me, however, was the fact that there were several Canon 1D X’s to put in my hands. [Read more…]
