Canon has announced three new Pixma printers designed for ease and convenience in a home or small office setup, built with easy Wi-Fi connectivity and simple setup in mind, while sporting a sleek and compact design.

Whether it's running a small business, doing your regular job from a smaller home office space, or needing a compact printer to run off the things you used to sneakily print at work, these new models should fit the bill perfectly.
