New Canon photo printers

Continuing its photography-related announcements, Canon has revealed two new PIXMA photo printers, the MP980 and MP620. Both printers continue to feature the company's Auto Photo Fix feature, which can make automatic adjustments for factors like contrast, saturation and red-eye; new is the inclusion of an Auto Scan Mode, which will detect the type of document being scanned, perform cropping, and save images to JPEG or PDF files. Each printer is also Wi-Fi and Ethernet enabled.

The MP980 is distinguished mainly by the inclusion of six ink tanks, including gray and photo black, allowing for more accurate black-and-white prints. The printer is further capable of printing a full-quality 4x6 photo in 20 seconds, however, and uses a white LED scanner that avoids warm-up times and unnecessary power consumption. The MP620 drops the extra ink tank, and is additionally slower, producing a 4x6 print in 41 seconds.

The 980 is expected to ship in October, at a price of $300. The 620 should ship a month earlier, and at a much lower cost of $150.
