    Canon New PIXMA MG8120 and PIXMA MG6120 Printers Feature HD Movie Print Function

    Canon has recently announced the addition of two new PIXMA multifunction printers, the PIXMA MG8120 and PIXMA MG6120. Both feature intelligent touch technology and a Full HD Movie Print function which allows users to capture individual frames of recorded HD movies taken with compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras.

    The Canon PIXMA MG8120 and MG6120 Wireless Photo AIO printers include a new intelligent touch system that features back-lit touch sensitive buttons and a light guidance system, which only illuminates the buttons you need to use to assist users when navigating through menus. Unlike other products that use pressure on the touch surface, the PIXMA models use touch technology that senses the electricity in the user’s body as they glide their finger across the touch surface.

    When using HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras, you can also print individual frames of movies.  Noise reduction can also be applied to the image to smooth out lines that would otherwise appear jaggy.

    Both printers will also include the upgraded versions of Auto Photo Fix II to help correct common photo errors, Easy-PhotoPrint EX allows you to search for and use images from Flickr, and Easy-WebPrint EX, featuring a new fit-to-page button for printing text and images from websites. The printers are also 802.11n Wi-Fi certified, which should allow for a faster network transfer rate.

    The PIXMA MG8120 has six individual ink tanks, including gray, which allows users to produce high-quality color and black and white images. There is a built-in film adapter unit that can convert older slides and negatives to digital, Auto Duplex copying, printing and a two-way paper feed and the speed of producing a borderless 4”x 6” photo (10 x 15cm) is approximately 20 seconds. The MG8120 has an estimated selling price of $299.99.

    The MG6120 Wireless Photo AIO printer also features a gray ink tank, and can produce a maximum color resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi. Like the 8120, it features a 3-inch LCD screen and is also capable of producing a borderless 4″ x 6″ photo in approximately 20 seconds. The MG6120 has an estimated selling price of $199.99.
