Canon PIXMA MG8250


The PIXMA MG8250 is Canon's new top-of-the-range photo all-in-one, with all the extras and a beautiful makeover.

Beautifully implemented touch panel, Superb five-ink photo prints, Twin paper trays

Improved, but still slow, duplex print, No high capacity cartridges, Comparatively high running costs

Canon Pixma MG8250 review


It's fairly expensive to buy and its running costs aren't cheap, but the Canon MG8250 prints superb quality text, graphics and photos at a rapid pace.

Superb text, graphics and photo results ; Fast print speeds ; Duplex printing ; Wi-Fi and Ethernet support

Expensive ; High running costs

Brilliant printer but the last to scan negatives and slides


This printer does it all. It prints from PC, IOS and Android devices. It produces excellent printing results whether it's a photo or document. It scans everything including old slides and negatives. Ours gets a real work out, we use it constantly in...

Will not purchase a Canon again


When all ink tanks are full the operation of this device is acceptable at best, not good but acceptable. It is slow to start printing, takes about 30-45 seconds to start from off position (printing 1 sided B&W only not photo quality prints). The...

Quality of the colour prints was high

Slow, expensive, Scanner and B&W prints difficult to operate if you do not have colour ink.
