Keith hope to add a more detailed look at these in due course if we can get one from Canon to test…
Canon’s new range of mid level printers are a step up from the basic designs, such as the MG3650 [review] Karen recently got for her office, but not the specialist photo printer such as the PRO-100 [review] and larger ones I regularly test [PRO-1000 review]. Then again, the larger printers don’t offer scanning/copying.
