Need a printer that lets you print stuff from your cloud storage accounts? Canon might be able to help you out with that.

Canon just lifted the curtain on three new PIXMA Wireless Inkjet Photo All-in-One printers, each of which can connect to cloud services and print things off of accounts that are associated with them.

Dubbed the MG7520, MG6620 (pictured above), and MG5620, Canon’s newest printers can each link up with popular cloud services, including Dropbox, Google Drive, and One Drive, as well as social networks like Facebook, and Twitter, and many other sites as well. You can use these printers in tandem with Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint Web app to print documents that are located in the cloud.

So that’s the flagship feature that all three of these printers share, but what sets them apart? Here’s a breakdown of each.

Aside from the cloud-centric goodies mentioned about, the PIXMA MG7520 can print at a maximum resolution of 9600×2400, and wears a 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen which you can use to adjust settings, and more.


Also, you print stuff using the MG7520 via NFC-enabled Android devices using Canon’s PIXMA Printing Solutions app. The MG7520 can be had in black, white, and burnt orange, and will cost you $199.99. Getting it in white will net you a “mirror finish.”

The $149.99 MG6620 has a scaled-down version of the NFC feature found on the MG7520. With the MG6620, both the printer and your mobile device need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network in order for printing to work in this way. It still includes an LCD touchscreen, but the size here gets bumped down by half an inch, to 3.0-inches. You can get these in the same colors offered with the MG7520, but burnt orange comes with a matte finish.

At $99.99, the MG5620 is the cheapest of this new bunch. Here, you still get an LCD touchscreen, but it gets sliced again by another half inch, down to 2.5-inches. You can get this printer in black and white, but not burnt orange.
