Amongst the launch of 15 printers in total, the company announced two compact printers called the PIXMA mini260 and the PIXMA mini220.

The flagship model, the PIXMA mini260, features a 2.5-inch TFT screen and Canon's new easy-scroll wheel, which it says makes "it easier than ever before to get the most out of your printer, leaving you free to explore its creative possibilities".

The mini220 will however only feature a 2.5-inch LCD display. Both will come with the option to be powered by a rechargeable battery for printing on the move.

Other features include a retractable handle, and prints within 59 seconds for a 10x15cm (4 x 6”) photo from the mini260.

Users will also be able to print to the printers from their mobile phone via an optional Bluetooth dongle, something which most of its Canon's competitors already feature built in.

The PIXMA mini260 and PIXMA mini220 will be available from October priced at £119.00 and £79.00 respectively.
