Canon announced the new PIXMA G6020 All-In-One Printer and the PIXMA G5020 MegaTank Single-Function Printer. These new PIXMA G-series MegaTank printers are further extending the current lineup and are ideal for high-print volume printing with low maintenance.
The magic of PIXMA G-series MegaTank printers lies with the continuous ink supply system. Boasting ink bottles with spill-resistant tops, the printer system is designed to provide seamless and clean usability at home and in the office. With black ink providing up to 6,000 pages3 per bottle and total color ink combination providing up to 7,700 pages3, the printers provide a high-page yield, making them cost-effective and convenient for the consumer.
Further adding to the flexibility and convenience of the two new MegaTank models is automatic two-sided printing along with a 350 page paper capacity when using both the front and rear trays. In addition, these two new printers feature faster print speeds than the previous generation of MegaTank printers, producing 13 impressions per minute (“IPM”) for black and white4 and 6.8 IPM for color4.
“Listening to our customer’s printing needs is a top priority for our company as we continue to bring new innovations to our products and the marketplace,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “I am confident that today’s product introductions will deliver upon the needs for a continuous ink system and easier wireless technology.”
The PIXMA G6020 and PIXMA G5020 printers both feature wireless connectivity via Wi-Fi1 and, for users of compatible mobile devices, the added benefit of access to the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app5, allowing for easy setup and basic operations on compatible smartphone devices. Through the Canon PRINT app, users can easily access PIXMA Cloud Link6 to print photos and documents from popular online social platforms and services, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Photobucket, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive.
The PIXMA G6020 printer also supports the Apple AirPrint software feature7 and the Google Cloud Print web printing service8 for printing from the Gmail™ email service and the Google Docs web-based word processing program8 on a compatible mobile device and from the Google Chrome browser for Mac, Windows, Linux and Chrome OS operating systems.
The new PIXMA G-series printers are now available.

1 Wireless printing requires a working network with wireless 802.11 b/g/n capability. Wireless performance may vary based on terrain and distance between the printer and wireless network clients.
2 From an Ipsos survey titled “Canon Print for Action Survey” conducted on behalf of Canon U.S.A., Inc. The survey was conducted online in English; fielding from November 27th – 29th, 2018 with a total sample size of 2,010 adults, ages 18 and older from the continental US, Alaska and Hawaii. The results were weighted to match the 2016 US census demographic data (including gender, age, region, race/ethnicity and income) to help ensure the data is representative of the US population. This study has a credibility interval of ±2.5 percentage points for all respondents.
3 Page yield is the estimated value based on Canon individual test method using the ISO/IEC 24712 chart and continuous printing simulation with the replacement ink bottles after initial setup. Page yield of color inks is an average yield of cyan, magenta and yellow inks combined. Page yield varies significantly depending on content printed and other factors. 6,000 (black) and 7,700 (color) printed page yields are approximate, based off document pages printed.
4 IPM print speeds are based on highest speed printer driver mode using black and white and color text patterns. Print speed is measured as soon as first page begins to feed into printer and will vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, types of paper used, and page coverage.
