Canon Pixma MG8220 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-in-One

 

The Canon Pixma MG8220 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-in-One can print photos from almost any source ranging from film to memory cards to video frames from Canon cameras.

Simple and Flexible

 

We use our printer for our home office like when we need to print a business letter or scan a document. We also use it to make an occasional art project such as pop-up holiday cards or gift disks.
