Canon added the Pixma MG6220 and Pixma MG8220 this past August to the Pixma MG inkjet all-in-one series. Along with the flagship MG8220, the MG6220 has a couple new features, including Canon’s Intelligent Touch System for the control panel and wireless Cloud Link printing via Canon Gateway and Picasa accounts.
In our first look today, we’ll provide an overview of the Pixma MG6220, product photographs, specifications, pricing and availability details. This AIO is a new and improved version of last year’s MG6120, but it still holds the same print speeds, paper capacity and a few more similar specs. It provides a “touch sensitive” easy scroll wheel and LCD (3.0-inches), can print 12.5 images per minute in black and 9.3 ipm in color, full HD movie print, two-way paper feeding and prints photos in a maximum of 9600 x 2400 resolution.
BUILD AND DESIGN
The Canon PIXMA MG6220 has the same design as its previous generation model, the MG6120. Its surface is shiny and glossy, so it’ll smudge up easily; the only matte surfaces are on the back and in the interior. It measures in at 18.5 x 14.5 x 6.9 when folded up fully and weighs approximately 20 pounds without consumables.
The MG6220 has a 3.0-inch LCD with Canon’s Intelligent Touch system, meaning users can use the touch-sensitive wheel and other commands to navigate and choose options without pressing any buttons. The buttons themselves light up when the AIO is in use and turn off when it’s not.
Lift the lid to access the 48-bit color flatbed scanner. The scanner has many features, some of which are wireless scanning, scan to memory card, auto document fix, auto scan mode and gutter shadow correction. The maximum optical resolution is 4800 x 4800. It can scan media up to 8.5 x 11.7-inches in size.
The MG6220 has a CD/DVD printable disc feature. To insert the disc holder, open the paper output tray panel and bring down the disc loader area inside. This allows users to print labels onto CD-ROMs and DVDs, and the MG6220 comes shipped with one.
This AIO prints with a six ink tank system for more advanced-looking photos and media. The inks are CLI-226, including two blacks (one is PGI-225 pigmented ink), magenta, yellow, gray, and cyan. Lift the inkjet up in the middle, remove the plastic ink guards, and press them into the appropriate slots to install them. They will light up with a red LED when installed correctly.
