Individuals may require Canon ink supplies if they opt to purchase a new device from the firm that intends to offer more connectivity options to users.

As well as Wi-Fi capabilities for hooking up to a home network without cables, the Pixma MG53530 can connect directly to the internet, allowing people to print photos they have stored on the cloud without going through a PC.

The model also gives owners access to the Creative Park Premium service that enables them to download many exclusive images created by professional photographers and artists, which can then be used on items such as calendars and greetings cards made with the included templates.

Canon also stated that the model comes with several energy and cost saving features, such as quick start and auto off functionality and five individual ink cartridges, which should make it cheaper to replace consumables.

Like another new model in the Pixma range that was announced this week – the iP4940 – the MG5350 will go on sale in September.
