Bumper day of scanner and printer launches from Canon

Canon has unveiled its autumn collection, and, while the new EOS 50D, is no doubt hogging a lot of the attention, there was also a whole host of printers and scanners unveiled.

We have detailed all of the new releases - along with specs and pics - on our sister site - Photography Press - but here's a run-down of what to look for.

The Pixma all-in-one and photo printer range has now been completely rehauled with new seven new All-In-One (AIO) devices and three new Photo printers.

Technologies shared across the new AIO launches include Auto Photo Fix automatic image correction, Auto Scan Mode to simplify scanning, and ChromaLife100+, which is claimed to deliver longer lasting, fade resistant photos.

And two of the new launches add Wi-Fi capabilities.

Prices range between £49.99 for the lower-end MP190 up to £279 for the flagship MP980.

The single function printers are the iP1900, iP3600 and the top-of-the-range iP4600 - which delivers 10 x 15cm borderless prints in approximately 20 seconds.

Canon has also unveiled a trio of new scanners - offering faster scanning speeds and higher resolutions on their predecessors.

They are the CanoScan LiDE 100 and the CanoScan LiDE 200 - the former which is an entry-level model scanning at resolutions of 2400 x 4800dpi resolution with 48-bit colour.

The CanoScan LiDE 200 delivers an increased resolution of 4800 x 4800dpi and will scan a colour A4 document or photo of 14 seconds.

Last up is the CanoScan 5600F which is geared towards "premium level users", as it includes film scanning and white LED technology.
