Yesterday, Canon unveiled two new photo printers to its consumer Pixma lineup, including the Pixma MG5320 and iP4920.

It is the latest update to the prior photo printer in the lineup, the MG5220 which was released around this time last year.

This 3-in-1 device features built-in wireless printing, a 3.0-inch LCD on its top control panel, two-way paper feeding, a five-ink system, and Full HD Movie Print.

In our hands-on first look of the MG5320 we’ll focus on its build and design, specifications, pricing, and availability. Be sure to keep an eye out for our full review to get a better idea if it’s the right AIO photo device for your home.

The MG5320 has many features that complement its quality photo printing. Some include a high maximum resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi, the Pixma CloudLink software, PictBridge, Full HD Movie Print, and CD/DVD printing. Users will also have access to a slew of photo software templates, such as calendars, albums, stationery, memos, and many more.


The Canon PIXMA MG5320 has a glossy black exterior with silver accents on the Canon and Pixma logos, as well as a silver bar that separates the scanner from the rest of the device. The all-around glossy design adds a nice stylish look to this photo AIO, but it will also attract dust and fingerprints easily. This generation features the control panel on the center of the lid instead of on the right side and a bigger LCD screen at 3.0-inches instead of 2.4-inches. The device is also slightly smaller than the MG5220, at 14.5″ (W) x 17.8″ (D) x 6.6″ (H) and 18 lbs.

Layered from the top of the device down, first comes the 48-bit flatbed scanner. The scanner offers a maximum optical resolution of 2400 x 4800 dpi, auto document fix, auto scan mode, gutter shadow correction, push scan, scan to memory, wireless scanning, and can fit up to a 8.5 x 11.7-inch sized document.

The control panel is located on the center of the lid and features an adjustable 3.0-inch color LCD, a scroll wheel for simple navigation, a home key, and a Wi-Fi LED indicator. The control panel is sprawled out across almost the entire bottom half of the lid, under the Pixma logo.

The paper feed tray folds out from the bottom and can fit a variety of paper sizes, including 4 x 6, 5 x 7, 8 x 10-inch, legal, letter, and U.S. #10 envelopes. The supported media types include plain paper, high resolution, super high gloss: photo paper pro platinum, photo paper plus glossy II, regular glossy, photo paper plus semi-gloss, matte photo paper, and U.S. #10 envelopes. The feed tray can fit 150 sheets and the cassette also fits an additional 150 sheets. The cassette is pictured below on the right side.
