Canon's Pixma Photo Printers Can Pull Frames from HD Movies


"Technology is growing and evolving at a rapid pace and Canon strives to be at the forefront," said Yuichi Ishizuka, VP of Canon's Consumer Imaging Group.  "The addition of these PIXMA models shows Canon's commitment to providing excellent quality to our customers at an affordable price."

The latest line of Pixma printers starts as low as $69.99 and scale up to $149.99, but they all have a few things in common.  For starters, improvements have been made to the Easy-PhotoPrint EX software, which now includes the ability to print straight from Flickr.  Auto Photo Fix II has also been improved to allow photo enhancement on the fly.

The most interesting feature though, is called Full HD Movie Print.  If you're printing from a compatible Canon camera that records video in HD, you'll be able to pull up and print individual frames.  These features are included in all of Canon's new Pixma printers, which should start hitting stores very soon.
