Full HD Movie Print In New Canon PIXMA Printers

Canon U.S.A., Inc. announced the addition of five new PIXMA printers with a new Full High Definition (HD) Movie Print feature. In addition to this new and exciting technology, these new models will feature improvements to Auto Photo Fix II to further enhance those near perfect memorable moments while Easy-PhotoPrint EX software now allows users to search and use images from Flickr.

When attempting to capture the experience of being around the family during the holidays or attending a birthday party where a baby is blowing out candles on a cake, a once in a lifetime chance to capture the perfect image can pass right before hitting the shutter button. Now when using the new Full HD Movie Print with compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras, consumers can print individual frames of movies1 while helping to bring those hard to capture, memorable moments to life. Whether using still or movie capabilities, users can be confident the memories being preserved will be of high quality both from the time the memory is captured to when it is time to share with friends and family by providing a keepsake photo.

“Technology is growing and evolving at a rapid pace and Canon strives to be at the forefront by offering innovative products that consumers both need and want,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “With a new design improving overall usability along with the inclusion of the new Full HD Movie Print, the addition of these PIXMA models shows Canon’s commitment to providing excellent quality to our customers at an affordable price.”

The new Canon PIXMA MG5220 and PIXMA MP495 Wireless2 Photo All-in-One printer, PIXMA MG5120 and PIXMA MP280 Photo All-in-One (AIO) printers along with the new PIXMA iP4820 Inkjet printer will provide users with many improvements to increase overall quality and ease-of-use. With enhanced Easy-PhotoPrint EX software, images can now be searched for and used from Flickr providing further flexibility to consumers interested in printing high-quality photos, albums, calendars, layouts and stickers from computers without having to launch an internet browser. Auto Photo Fix II, which helps correct common photo errors, has been improved as well with enhanced light source recognition and color cast correction3 resulting in an increase in the overall image quality of printed images.

Upgrades to the enhanced Easy-WebPrint EX software (Windows Only)4 include a new Fit-to-One-Page button for easy printing of texts and images from websites. This button can be especially useful when printing driving directions so both the map of the area and the step-by-step directions are on one easy to read page. This new software will also provide printing of multiple documents into a booklet format for easy handling and improved organization while images can be inserted into the print layouts allowing users to personalize their information even further.
