Ideal as a printer that the whole family can share, the Canon Pixma MG5250 has built-in Wi-Fi capabilities and can print, scan or use a memory card wirelessly.
This machine can deliver colour photo prints that are vivid as well as text documents that are business-like in their appearance. In the case of print speeds, mono documents can be produced in 11.0ipm with colour documents taking 9.3ipm. It will take the MG5250 just 20 seconds to print a 10 x 15cm borderless photo.
For families looking for prints from their home movies, Canon’s Full HD Movie Print software will let them capture an individual frame to print. The technology will then enhance the image so the quality of print is outstanding.
Benefitting from two paper trays that can accommodate different paper sizes, users will also be able to print directly onto compatible CDs and DVDs. Paper costs can also be halved by using the printer’s auto-duplexing (double-sided printing) feature.
When it comes to helping your printing go further and optimising your ink use, the MG5250 adopts a five single ink tank system meaning that you will only ever have to replace the ink that has ran out. By using Canon’s ChromaLife100 ink system you should see your photo prints preserved for a lifetime.
It can be commonplace in many homes today to print various webpages. To cut down on paper wastage, there is an Easy-WebPrint EX feature that allows you to clip and combine information from different pages.
Printer users with a creative side will appreciate Creative Park Premium, an online service where you can download photographs or illustrations from internationally renowned photographers and artists, though it is worth noting that this feature is only available if you use Canon genuine inks.
Designed for use as a home photo printer, the Canon Pixma MG5250 All-in-One Wi-Fi Colour Photo Printer can print a photo in 20 seconds.

The standard input tray holds 300 sheets of paper, but an additional input tray can be added for extra convenience. The adjustable tray arm allows the printer to use a variety of different paper sizes and envelopes. It uses five different cartridges: yellow, magenta, cyan, standard black (for text) and photo black.
