Another part of the exhibit is the display of their latest Canon Pixma photo printers. Canon released a new range of Pixma photo printers, which includes the MG5370, E500, iP4970, MG8270 and MP287. These printers are not just any other printers in the market. What makes these printers special is that they are designed to suit all kinds of users, share an emphasis on pleasant aesthetic design, user-friendly operation, creative features and Canon's renowned image quality.
The MG5370 which costs Php8,495 is a mid-range All-In-One photo printer, with Wi-Fi built-in. This not only allows it to connect wirelessly to a computer network and be shared among multiple computers, but it can also conveniently print photos directly from iPhones, iPads and Android devices. It guarantees excellent photo prints with its five individual ink tanks. Along with this, it also has direct photo print functions like direct card printing and Pictbridge. PIXMA Cloud Link is a new service that will be made available to MG5370. PIXMA Cloud Link allows printers to connect directly to online photo albums to view and print photos, without the aid of a PC. Not only can users print their favorite photos this way, useful document templates are also made available using the PIXMA Cloud Link service.  
The PIXMA E500 which costs Php4,495 is designed with easy operation in mind and Canon's new Ink Efficient features allow it to print an impressive 1,200 pages per set of ink cartridges, reducing the amount of times a user has to replace the cartridge while also reducing operational costs. Other functions like FastFront and Auto Photo Fix II support this design concept of user-friendly operation. 
The PIXMA iP4970 which costs Php6,495 is an affordable dedicated photo printer, using FINE, Hybrid and ChromaLife100+ technologies to print colorful and long-lasting photographs. The packaged software suite grants users access to programs like Full HD Movie Print and Easy PhotoPrint EX to streamline the creative work flow, making it easier than ever to tinker with photographs and print visually unique images. 
The sophisticated features of the new printers are made more accessible with the Intelligent Touch System. Available on the MG8270 which costs Php19,295, it makes use of a LCD panel and a special touch-sensitive area to navigate through the various functions. What makes it more intelligent and appealing is the fact that only the relevant touch keys are lit at each menu, so that users are never overloaded with unnecessary options. The PIXMA MG8270 is the ideal photo all in one as it has six individual ink cartridges with gray ink for excellent and detailed monochrome prints. It also comes with film scanning capabilities for the traditionalists who still prefer to use film or those who would like to digitize their film. PIXMA Cloud Link is a new service that will be made available to the MG8270 . PIXMA Cloud Link allows printers to connect directly to online photo albums to view and print photos, without the aid of a PC. Not only can users print their favorite photos this way, useful document templates are also made available using the PIXMA Cloud Link service.  
The MP287 which costs Php3,495 makes an excellent personal printer/scanner for the home: it is compact and stylish, ready to operate mere seconds from start-up, with a hassle-free self-opening paper output tray when printing and copying.
