Canon unveils three new PIXMA G series inkjet printers

You can rest assured that you won’t be running out of printer options any time soon, as Canon today launched a total of eight new printers – three of which belonging to the newest PIXMA G series lineup.

PIXMA G Series: G1000, G2000, G3000

The PIXMA G series' range-topping G3000 inkjet printer.

The highlight of the three new PIXMA G series printers – the G1000, G2000, and G3000 – are undoubtedly their ability to print up to 6,000 B&W documents, and 7,000 color documents from each of the four high-yield color ink bottles.

Speaking of ink bottles, you won’t have to worry about creating a mess when the time comes to refill the consumables of the PIXMA G series printers, as they are designed with a screw-down cap that helps to prevent any unwanted leakages, and a uniquely designed bottle tip that ensures smooth ink flow during refills.

It’s relatively easy to distinguish between the three PIXMA G series printers. The G1000 is a single-function printer, the G2000 is a multifunction (print, scan, copy) printer, while the G3000 is a multifunction wireless printer – it’s as simple as that. Apart from its core functionality, all three printers essentially share identical print characteristics across the board, which include a color document print speed of 8.8 seconds, and a monochrome document print speed of 5.0 seconds.

The PIXMA G1000, G2000, and G3000 will be sold at selected Canon authorized outlets from mid-December onwards for RM499, RM599, and RM799, respectively.

You won't find any physical buttons on the top-of-the-line, PIXMA Photo All-In-One MG7770 printer, as you'll be using its touch panels to navigate it.

Apart from the new PIXMA G series printers, Canon also unveiled three new additions to the PIXMA Photo All-In-One printer lineup: the MG3670, MG5570, and the flagship MG7770.

Of course, it goes without saying that the flagship MG7770 printer will be the one that’s packed to the brim with features, which include a 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen with Intelligent Touch System, and a built-in memory card slot. What’s more, the MG7770 also offers the fastest print times amongst the three, as it’s able to print 15 monochrome images per minute (ipm) and 10 color images per minute (ipm), respectively. It has the fastest photo print speeds as well, being able to churn out a 4R photo in approximately 21 seconds.

Apart from that, all three PIXMA Photo All-In-One printers share similar features, such as Wi-Fi Direct, Auto Power On, automatic duplex printing, and compatibility with cloud printing services such as PIXMA Cloud Link, Easy PhotoPrint +, and Google Cloud Print.

The PIXMA Photo All-In-One MG3670, MG5770, and MG7770 will be available at selected Canon authorized outlets beginning end-November for RM350, RM406, and RM841, respectively.

Canon's no-nonsense imageCLASS MF628Cw Color Multi-Function laser printer.

But wait, there’s more! In addition to the bevy of new inkjet printers, Canon also launched two new color multifunction printers for the home office and SMEs: the imageCLASS MF621Cn, and the imageCLASS MF628Cw. Both printers are able to print monochrome and color documents at a rate of 14 pages per minute (ppm) – the kind of print speeds that you’d expect from a laser printer. In fact, both printers share the same 3.5-inch colored touch panel as well. The main differences between the two printing workhorses? The MF628Cw comes with a 50-sheet automatic document feeder, fax capability, and Wi-Fi connectivity, while the MF621Cn doesn’t.

The imageCLASS MF621Cn Color Multi-Function laser printer.

The imageCLASS MF628Cw is currently available for purchase at selected Canon authorized outlets for RM1,840, while the imageCLASS MF621Cn will be only be retailing in December for RM1,520.
