Providing Wireless1 Connectivity, Now is the Time to Upgrade Your Printer to a Continuous Ink Supply System
MELVILLE, NY, June 6, 2019 – In a time where it seems like digital is king, we cannot forget that 69% of Americans feel overwhelmed about the constant barrage of digital information2. It’s time to bring it back to basics and embrace the benefits of print. In that spirit, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to announce the new PIXMA G6020 All-In-One Printer and the PIXMA G5020 MegaTank Single-Function Printer. These new PIXMA G-series MegaTank printers are further extending the current lineup and are ideal for high-print volume printing with low maintenance.
The magic of PIXMA G-series MegaTank printers lies with the continuous ink supply system. Boasting ink bottles with spill-resistant tops, the printer system is designed to provide seamless and clean usability at home and in the office. With black ink providing up to 6,000 pages3 per bottle and total color ink combination providing up to 7,700 pages3, the printers provide a high-page yield, making them cost-effective and convenient for the consumer. Further adding to the flexibility and convenience of the two new MegaTank models is automatic two-sided printing along with a 350 page paper capacity when using both the front and rear trays. In addition, these two new printers feature faster print speeds than the previous generation of MegaTank printers, producing 13 impressions per minute (“IPM”) for black and white4 and 6.8 IPM for color4.

7Artisans released the 7Artisans 60mm f2.8 lens For Canon EOS M mirrorless systems (and others too).
The 7Artisans 60mm F2.8 Macro manual lens contains 8 elements in 7 groups. The floating system on the front glass can guarantee the excellent image quality at infinity and 1:1 macro condition. Even the macro scene is really small, you can also use a extension accessory to get a 2:1 to 3:1 macro image.
The KamLan 50mm f/1.1 II lens for mirrorless systems has been officially released. It sells at $159.99 and can be pre-ordered at Adorama or KickStarter
The “Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MK2 APS-C lens” has a super large, bright f/1.1 aperture with 11 circular aperture iris that allows for great results in extreme low light conditions and also the ability to create beautifully creamy backgrounds. Brand new optical design can help you get great sharpness in all aperture range.
One of the key strengths of the Kamland 50mm f/1.1 MK2 is its high degree of color accuracy and richness. Unlike some normal large lenses, it does not introduce too much color cast to images but instead delivers a neutral, accurate color rendition even wide open. You can easily create great 3D effect and rich sense of atmosphere for your images.
Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MK2 features with dual high index of refraction element groups. It can calibrate the spherical aberration effectively. The result is your images will be sharp from minimum distance to infinity.
Further extending the flexibility of the lens is the ability focus down to just 0.4m (1.3ft), allowing you to fill the frame with your subject and throw the background dramatically out of focus.
Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MK2 features a larger diameter element with high index of refraction glass to help eliminate the onion rings. The whole defocus area is smooth and creamy.
A few sites brought a news they obviously got wrong.
Satirical site The Babylon Bee reported that Canon will hand out a “professional photographer” certificate with any camera that costs more than $599.
The faked press release states:
If you spend at least $599 on a camera, you’re instantly transformed into a professional photographer, and now you have the documentation to prove it. In a lot of professions, you have to take classes or practice for years before you truly become a professional, but not in photography. Just buy one of our budget to mid-range cameras, and you’re in.”
