Canon refreshes its PIXMA range with two new All-in-One home printers (MG3050 and MG2550S)

Canon press release:

London, UK, 12 July 2016 – Canon today unveils two new All-in-One PIXMA inkjet printers – the PIXMA MG3050 series and PIXMA MG2550S.

Photo enthusiasts can enjoy bringing their pictures to life in vivid, vibrant colours on the new PIXMA MG3050 series and PIXMA MG2550S with Canon’s hybrid ink system, using dye and pigment based inks together for beautiful photos, as well as crisp, sharp text in documents.

Connected printers for a connected world

Quickly connect devices at home with Access Point Mode to wirelessly use the printer without even needing to be on the same Wi-Fi network. For days when you’ve no time to spare, documents can be scanned and sent directly to your mobile device so you can take them with you.

Freedom to be creative
For creative inspiration, the PIXMA MG3050 series and PIXMA MG2550S include My Image Garden for Mac or PC, which organises all photos in one easy-to-use location before creating unique photo layouts automatically, making beautiful displays and prints possible in an instant. The printers also come with access to CREATIVE PARK PREMIUM, an online service for Canon genuine ink users featuring inspirational designs and projects from professional artists and photographers.

With the PIXMA MG3050 series, photo enthusiasts can create new 5×5” square style photo prints, perfect for framing and displaying in the home or even printing as gifts for friends and family.
