Another thing that sets the Canon G series printers apart from Epson’s models is that their ink tanks are integrated within the printer body, thus reducing the space needed to accommodate the printer. And with a see-through design, users can easily monitor their ink levels on the front panel without needing to open up the printer.
Otherwise, the G series printers feature Canon’s hybrid ink system, which combines both pigment black ink and dye color inks. The versatile print engine generates 4R borderless photos in just 60 seconds, and is also capable of printing A4-size photos. Between the three models, the G1000 is a single-function printer; the G2000 adds scan and copy functions; and the G3000 having additional wireless connectivity and mobile and cloud printing features.
For instance, the G3000 works with the new Canon Print Inkjet/Selphy app (available on iOS and Android, and which replaces the old Pixma Printing Solutions), allowing users to print, scan, and access files on the printer via their mobile device. Users can also share their files to cloud-based applications such as Facebook, Dropbox, and Google Drive via the Pixma Cloud Link app.
