Digital Camera World Verdict

Canon’s smart new all-in-one printer aims to take the chore out of working at home, with quick and easy printing, scanning and photocopying, seamless connectivity with smartphones and tables over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, along with elegant and intuitive onboard controls. The auto document feeder accommodates up to 35 sheets of paper and there are dual paper input feeds, plus built-in OLED and LED displays. It’s highly effective for documents and creative projects but less ideal for photo printing.

Canon’s latest mid-range PIXMA TR7020 all-in-one printer is available in black  or white. Naturally, they’re both color printers although the color range isn’t as broad as with many PIXMA printers, which combine a pigment-based black ink for crisp mono document printing with dye-based CMYK inks for color photos. Instead, this printer has a pigment-based black ink cartridge and a tri-color dye-based cartridge containing cyan, magenta and yellow inks. Darker tones in photo prints therefore need to be produced by using only the three colored inks to generate ‘composite black’, which can result in a lack of contrast and vibrancy, and a relatively limited gamut. But more on that later.
