Canon today unveiled new PIXMA inkjet printers aimed at home users and a Laser Shot printer that targets small businesses. The PIXMA MG6150 and PIXMA MG8150 inkjet printers offer touchscreen interfaces and the ability to capture and print Full HD still images from home movies. The business-focused Laser Shot LBP6000 model boasts increased energy efficiency compared to the model it replaces.

When a compatible camera is connected to the new PIXMA printers via PictBridge they can print HD images from videos. Both models have a maximum print resolution of 9600x2400 DPI. "These new stylish, compact PIXMA all-in-one printers for the home look good and make it easier than ever to get creative," Canon Australia's PIXMA brand manager, Beryl Thomas, said.

Following traditional Canon design as seen on models like the Canon PIXMA MP490 and Canon PIXMA iP4700, the two new printers have a glossy finish and sleek bodies. The PIXMA MG6150 is equipped with a 3in LCD screen, while the PIXMA MG8150 comes with a 3.5in display. Both models use a six-colour ink system, with a dedicated grey cartridge to combat graininess and reduce image fading. The MG8150 is able to scan and print 35mm film slides. Pricing has not yet been announced for Canon's new PIXMA printers, which will be available in October.

The business-oriented Laser Shot LBP6000 offers a quoted print speed of 18 pages per minute and on-demand fuser heating to reducing power wastage. The monochrome laser printer has an RRP of $149 and is available now.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
