Canon Announce New Range of Inkjet Printers

Canon Pixma TS5050 Printer
Canon have announced their latest generation of Canon PIXMA all-in-one Printers for UK and European consumers.

The Canon PIXMA TS5050, TS6050, TS8050 and TS9050 series use the existing Canon PGI-570 and CLI-571 range of cartridges and are said to be around 40% more compact than printers released earlier this year. All four models include both Wi-Fi wireless networking and SD card slots, as well as an LCD control screen. The printers are compatible with all existing standard and XL capacity ink tanks. All of these printers, as you'd expect, are compatible with Google Cloud and Apple Air print functions.


Canon PIXMA TS5050 – Entry Level

The 5 cartridge entry-level TS5050 is also available in 3 alternative colour options (Models TS5051TS5053 and TS5055) if you fancy something other than the standard Black. Unfortunately it doesn't feature automatic duplex printing and only has a non-touch 3" LCD display. The TS5050 is the slowest printer in the new range, but still capable of a decent 9ppm colour or 12.6ppm mono. An excellent choice for the home or infrequent user.

Canon PIXMA TS6050 – Advanced Home User

Next up is the TS6050. Still aimed at the Home User, and featuring the same 1,200 dots-per-inch printing and Five ink cartridge system like its younger brother, the TS5050. The TS6050 however, provides automatic duplex printing, a three-inch touch-screen display and slightly faster print speeds of 10ppm colour or 15ppm mono. This model is also available in 2 further colour options (Models TS6051 and TS6052).

Both entry level machines will turn out a borderless 4x6-inch print in around 39 seconds and also feature 1,200-dpi scanners capable of a full-page A4 scan in around 19 seconds.

Canon PIxma TS9055Canon PIXMA TS8050/TS9050 – High End Users

The higher-end TS8050 can be bought in 3 further colours, White TS8051, Red TS8052 and Brown TS8053, while the top of the range TS9050 is Black/White but also also available in a Black/Red TS9055 variant.

Both deliver 2,400 dpi printing and scanning, as well as featuring a 6 cartridge ink system. The additional Grey cartridge offers enhanced definition and depth. Both are capable of a 4x6 inch print in 21 seconds, but document speeds are identical to that of the TS6050 at 10ppm colour or 15ppm mono.

Despite their higher scan resolution, the pair are capable of a full-page A4 scan quicker than the lower end models, in just 14 seconds. The TS8050 opts for a 4.3-inch touch screen display, and the TS9050 an upgraded 5-inch touch screen.

Both provide several features not available on the entry level models including both rear tray for Photo Paper and front cassette tray with 100 sheet capacity, direct disc print tray option and an ethernet port. The Pixma TS9050 and TS9055 both also feature snazzy two tone premium styling.

 

Pricing & Availabilty

The updated Canon PIXMA-series printers will be available from 18th November 2016 in the UK where RRP pricing is set at £120 for the PIXMA TS5050, £180 for the PIXMA TS6050, £200 for the PIXMA 8050 and £280 for the PIXMA 9050. (Links show stock for pre-order from www.amazon.co.uk)
