Introducing Canon PIXMA MG6170

photographer (digital since 2001 and film since early 1980s) and a technology gadget fanatic since the boom of Information Technology (IT) products and services, I do keep a lookout for new IT products especially DSLR, lens, smartphones, laptops and other range of IT products too. Another opportunity arises again for me, with another photo printer for review and testing, this time, it’s the Canon PIXMA MG6170 printer, thanks to Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide and Canon Singapore.

I have already tested and printed out the photographs and I would post my thoughts and reviews in the next post!
