Canon Pixma TS8050 review
Canon pixma ts805. When printing full color documents and photos, Canon’s six ink system has a real advantage, producing vibrant and professional results. The clever foldaway design and large touchscreen are also highlights, but the Pixma’s running costs aren va cheap.
Space saving foldaway design
Wi-Fi and NFC pairing
Six ink system and color fidelity
‘Setup’ cartridges supplied are standard size, not XL
Refills are expensive
Slow print speeds
Text looks a little heavy when not on ‘Fine’ setting
Canon’s remarkably compact multifunction printer has more features and functions than most large office MFPs. Printing, scanning and copying are a given, but with three in-trays, it can print onto blank compact discs as well as envelopes and paper of any size.
The scanner resolution is impressive and its print resolution is even higher at 9,600 x 2,400 dpi. This MFP – which retails at £ 150 (around $ 195, AU $ 260) – adds an SD card slot to its inputs and can print on both sides of plain paper. The 4.3-inch touchscreen is one of the best on the market too, but that’s not its unique selling point. With six ink cartridges instead of the usual four or five, this device has a real advantage when it comes to printing color images.
Design and build
Canon is the master of miniaturisation, and somehow, all of these features fit into a smooth shoebox-sized unit that packs up tightly enough to fit in a desk drawer. Almost every panel of the Pixma TS8050 folds or slides to reveal an access hatch, or another paper tray. Our favorite design feature is the way the paper delivery tray slides out automatically whenever you print.
Our only concern is that there are so many moving plastic pieces that could easily snap off over time. The two paper in-trays are both worryingly wobbly already. On a more positive note, the SD card slot will be useful for photographers and good to see a full set of Ethernet and USB ports.
Printing and scanning in full color and at high resolution can be done easily from a Mac or PC, or a mobile device using the handy companion app called Canon Print on iOS or Android.
Canon pixma ts805. Your connectivity options are exhaustive, with a square USB port, plus a front USB connector for thumb drives and an SD card slot for cameras, while your wireless options include Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi direct and NFC for bump-pairing an NFC- capable phone.
There are two paper trays which can be loaded simultaneously with plain paper and envelopes, or photo paper, and the 4.3-inch color display is a touchscreen. You can use this to access Canon’s Cloud Link feature that makes it easy to print directly from social media sites like Instagram. These sort of images look rather good when printed onto square (13 x 13cm) photo paper.
