With the addition of the MP270, MP490, MP550, and MP560 all-in-one printers to its PIXMA range, Canon provides a range of options to make at-home document and photo printing, copying and scanning easier than ever before.

The four new models feature an innovative design, including a self-opening paper tray that prevents paper jams plus a new Auto Scan mode that can identify the type of original and scan documents as PDF files and photos as JPEG images with one click of the 'Scan' button. The updated Auto Photo Fix II feature provides automatic correction for common photo printing errors, such as underexposed images, through Multi-Zone Exposure Correction and improvements in overall face detection, scene analysis plus brightness and saturation correction.

Another new feature on the PIXMA models is Easy-WebPrintEX software, which makes printing documents from the web much easier. The Auto Clip feature lets consumers select part of a Web page to print, enlarge text size, and combine clips from multiple pages into one printed document. Users save paper and ink by printing only the information they need. Canon's FINE print head technology is also included to provide fast, high-quality printing.

The MP550 is a straightforward model boasting five individual ink tanks with the ChromaLife100+ ink system plus a 2-inch colour LCD screen. The MP560 is similarly equipped and is the most compact PIXMA printer to feature wireless capabilities and built-in auto duplex printing, copying, and scanning. Both models can print photos directly from USB flash memory drive, as well as from a memory card, camera, or PC.

The MP490 and entry-level MP270 offer simple, intuitive operation at an affordable price, and work straight out of the box. The MP490 utilises Canon's ChromaLife100+ four-color ink system and can print out a lab quality borderless 4 x 6-inch photo in approximately 43 seconds. Under the new ISO print speed standard, the MP490 will create letter-sized documents at approximately 8.4 ipm for black-and-white documents and approximately 4.8 ipm for colour.
