Canon has released two new Pixma multifunction printers, the PIXMA MG6150 and PIXMA MG815. Both printers showcase two enhancements to Canon's Pixma's line.
The first enhancement is called the Intelligent Touch System, which is implemented through the PIXMA MG6150 and PIXMA MG815 control panels. The control panel uses touch-sensitive buttons, and only the buttons you need to use light up. Canon says this should make the devices quicker and easier to use, and minimise mistakes.
The second enhancement is called Full HD Movie Print. This feature works only with selected Canon EOS digital SLR cameras, or PowerShot point-and-shoot cameras that support HD video recording. Full HD Movie Print allows you to select a frame from a recorded HD video and print it. You can also apply noise reduction to the selected frame so the print doesn't appear grainy, and resolution enhancement makes lines look smooth, not jaggy.
Both the PIXMA MG6150 and PIXMA MG815 use six individual ink cartridges and prints at a maximum colour resolution of 9,600x2,400dpi and a maximum monochrome resolution of 600x600dpi.
The PIXMA MG6150 has a colour flatbed scanner that has a maximum optical resolution of 4,800x9,600 dpi. The MG815's colour flatbed scanner has a maximum resolution of 4,800x4,800dpi.
The Pixma PIXMA MG6150 is £280 plus VAT (or $300 in the US), while the PIXMA MG815 is £169 plus VAT ($200).
