Canon has announced a new MAXIFY GX3070 and two new PIXMA G series refillable ink tank printers to increase their SOHO and consumer printer line-ups.

The Canon MAXIFY GX3070 refillable ink tank printer is made for SOHOs. With its low-cost printing and water-resistant printouts combined with a refillable ink tank system, makes the printer an ideal choice for users to achieve maximum productivity gains.

While it lacks an ADF, the GX3070 is capable of auto duplex printing and offers fast print speeds that will satisfy users who print more than the occasional single-sheet invoice or business document.

It is compatible with the high-yield GI-76 series inks, which can deliver 6,000 greyscale pages, and 14,000 pages in colour. With the Economy Mode print setting turned on, you get even more with up to 9,000 and 21,000 pages in greyscale and colour respectively.

Canon claims that their all-pigment ink formulation works wonders for colour reproduction and replicates a laser print-like quality. Lines do not smudge with the use of highlighter pens, and even accidental water spills do not affect the sharpness and colour intensity of rendered graphics, making them highly durable for client presentations and sharing during business meetings.

With a user-replaceable maintenance cartridge design, trips to service centres can be minimised, so users can continue to print with minimal downtime.

A business-oriented printer needs security features and the GX30370 comes with document protection and wireless network with support for WPA-Enterprise security. The MAXIFY GX3070 also features an Ethernet port for wired network connectivity. With more businesses adopting smart devices for work, the free Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY Mobile app available on the Apple Appstore and Google Play supports printing and scanning, as well as control of device settings, along with the setting up and operation of cloud services.

The PIXMA G4770 is a print, scan, copy and fax AIO with a 20-sheet ADF. The printer is ideal for families who find scanning documents with mobile phone apps inadequate, or home offices with multi-page documents to digitise.

The PIXMA G3770 lacks an ADF but comes with red, white and black colour options.

Both printers support wireless mobile printing and scanning, using smartphones or tablets on a local network or the cloud. Users can easily check printer status, configure settings and navigate menu options via the convenient 1.35-inch LCD screen. With the colour options of red, white and black, the PIXMA G3770 will fit in seamlessly with any modern home or office interior.

The Easy-PhotoPrint Editor app makes printing simple and is perfect for business or personal use. With ready-to-use templates, photo layouts, postcards, collages, calendars, photo IDs and even business cards can be created in minutes. The app is available for iOS, Android OS, Windows and macOS.
