Full HD Movie PrintIf you’ve ever had trouble capturing frames from a movie then you might be interested in the Full HD Movie Print function of these printers. When using HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras, users can also print individual frames of movies – so that special moment that nobody managed to catch on a still camera can still be enjoyed as an individual image. Noise reduction can also be applied to the image to smooth out lines that would otherwise appear jaggy.
Other FeaturesBoth printers will also include the upgraded versions of Auto Photo Fix II – to help correct common photo errors, Easy-PhotoPrint EX – allowing users 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.
PIXMA MG8120 Wireless Photo AIO PrinterThis printer 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 US$299.99.
PIXMA MG6120 Wireless Photo AIO PrinterThe 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 US$199.99.
