These devices update Canon’s home and office line-up, and also introduce two new A3+ single-function printers for those with more advanced printing needs. Stylish and easy-to-use, Canon’s range of printers has been designed to support users seeking a range of printing options, including photo lab quality prints and business documents. A new addition to the range, the iP8740 is said to be ideal for photo enthusiasts looking to step up and print images at home. Featuring a six-ink system, which includes individual grey ink, this printer produces high-quality colour photos and smooth gradations in mono prints.  Said to be ideal for printing large spread sheets, posters and photos, the iX6840 replaces the current iX6540 and is a high-performance A3+ printer.  With Ethernet and Wi-Fi capability, the iX6840 supports connectivity ideal for both the home and office. The printer is also compatible with Canon’s “Pixma Printing Solutions” app, Google Cloud Print and Apple AirPrint, to ensure users in home office environments can print from smart devices, such as tablets and smartphones, with ease.
