Canon’s new Pixmas have WiFi printing without annoying adapters

Canon’s Pixma MP980 and MP620 include WiFi adapters, so there’s no need to faff around with wireless print servers, USB bridges or what-have-you. The $300 980 is the spec monster, with six ink tanks, 20-second prints and a film and negative scanner, while the $150 620 is cheaper and not so fancy, with 40-second prints, a lower-res LCD display and only 5 colors.

Both models have memory card slots, ethernet and are limited to 4×6 prints.

    The first inexpensive WiFi printer I found, and bought some months back, is the Brother MFC-685cw. Runs $130-$160 retail. Everything seems to work fine, including scan and fax. My only complaint is the ink, which is a horrible price gouge. Four tanks, CMYK, something like $60 for a full set. Haven’t seen any replacement cartridges yet.

    Ah, but do the new Pixmas have continuous ink supply systems (CIS) available as the previous Pixmas do?

    The 6-bucket one is continuous ink supply.
