Design, Quality and Speed
Stylish design with incredible detail
Perfect for students and families alike, this compact, wireless All-In-One is easy to set up and ideal for everyday printing, scanning and copying. Designed to print documents, web content and photos quickly and easily, the affordable MG3150 combines exceptional value with signature Canon image quality, allowing you to use the printer efficiently, as often as you like.
Thanks to the 2 picolitre (pl) ink droplets from Canon's class-leading FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print engine which delivers an astonishing resolution of up to 4800 dpi, the MG3150 produces vivid, detailed photos and crisp text. It can print a 4” x 6" (10 x 15 cm) borderless photograph in 44 seconds, giving you superior photo-lab quality output at speed.
All PIXMA printers come with genuine Canon inks already installed. For frequent users, replacement Canon ink cartridges now come in XL sizes which allow you to print more and offer substantial savings over standard cartridges.
The MG3150’s document print speeds are also impressive with 9.2 IPM* in black and white or 5.0 IPM* in colour.

Ease of use
FastFront design means it can sit discreetly anywhere
The FastFront feature makes replacing ink cartridges and loading paper quicker and easier because it can all be done from the front. Introducing this feature not only makes life easier when using the printer on a daily basis but it has also allowed the printer to be redesigned so that it is more compact. This enables it to be placed closer to a wall or on a shelf because it takes up less space.
Easy to use straight out of the box
To reduce power usage, and to ensure there’s no waiting around, the MG3150 incorporates Quick Start functionality. This means that there is no need to wait for the printer to ‘warm up’ resulting in near instant operation - perfect for those in a hurry.
Print more quickly and simply with Auto Duplex printing
With Auto Duplex printing you can print on both sides of the page without the hassle of manually turning the page. This saves you time and paper which in turn saves you money and means your printing has a reduced impact on the environment.
Quick and easy with Auto Scan
Premium quality 1200 x 2400 dpi scanning is quick, simple and easy with the integral Auto Scan Mode. It detects your original, e.g. photo, business card or letter, then automatically scans and saves the image with the appropriate settings, all without any prompt from you. You can also scan directly to a USB stick or memory card to quickly share scanned files and with the included Canon MP Navigator EX software you can convert hardcopy documents to searchable PDFs and add password protection.
Stay connected with Wi-Fi ‘n’ certification
You can print to the MG3150 wirelessly from any Wi-Fi enabled computer and its improved Wi-Fi support (Wi-Fi ‘n’ CERTIFIED) enables wider compatibility. Set up is easy from the menu screen and it automatically searches for the wireless connection.
Download the Canon App to print from and scan to your smartphone
Should you have a smartphone, simply download the free Canon Easy-PhotoPrint App from the iTunes® App Store or Android Market to quickly and easily print your photos wirelessly from compatible Apple or Android devices. With the new Canon Easy-PhotoPrint App you can also scan documents directly from the printer and send them to your smartphone or tablet for true flexibility on the go.

Additional features and benefits
Capture stills from your movies with Full HD Movie Print
Turn your movie moments into beautiful prints with Canon’s unique Full HD Movie Print**. Get the best of both worlds by producing high quality individual photos from your favourite HD home movie moments. Printing a photo using Full HD Movie Print couldn’t be easier. Simply select a frame from your movie using the intuitive Easy-PhotoPrint software and print. As you do this, frame enhancement technology will automatically analyse the frames either side, combining the best from each to ensure that lighting and resolution are as good as they can be in your final photo.
New features include Merge Frames and Layout Print. Merge Frames allows you to overlay multiple stills to give a sense of motion in your photo and Layout Print lets you choose a short movie clip from your archives and applies a comic-strip effect so that you can create a storyboard from your movie.
Apply creative post-production techniques straight from the printer with Fun Filter Effects
Make your photos even more exciting by applying Fun Filter Effects with Easy-PhotoPrint EX. With a host of exciting effects to apply you can adapt your old photos to create a whole load of new ones from your original stills.
Highlights include ‘Blur Background’ which allows you to add a retrospective artistic blur to your subject’s background, ‘Fish Eye’ effect which applies a wide-angle lens effect to create a unique distorted version of your original photo and Miniature effect which applies a selective focus to scenes to make full-size, real life subjects look like miniature models (much like tilt-shift photography).

Automatically correct your images with Auto Photo Fix II
Based on Canon's market-leading intelligent camera technology, Auto Photo Fix II with Red-Eye Removal and Multi-zone Exposure Correction is perfect for your home photo lab as it automatically fixes your photos at the printer, giving you flawless results without the need for a computer.
It also categorises your images into one of five types - Portrait, Scenery, Night Scenery, Snapshot with Scenery, and Snapshot with Night Scenery - then applies optimal image and exposure correction. This means that unexposed areas of the photo will be optimised area by area, plus faces that are backlit and under-exposed will automatically be brightened with correct colour cast to help ensure more accurate skin tones creating beautiful images.
Control your web printing with Easy-WebPrint EX
The Easy-WebPrint EX software helps you organise the information you want to print from the internet, avoiding wasting paper by printing the details you don't need. These include:
- Auto Clipping - print only the area of a web page you want
- Clip from multiple pages - collect, combine and edit content from multiple web pages before printing
You can also print with an enlarged text size or reduce the size of the whole web page to fit it onto a single piece of paper for printing.
Help save paper with Eco settings
Canon has developed an ECO Information tracking function that allows you to see how many pages you have saved through Auto Duplex Printing and the subsequent CO² emissions that have been reduced as a result.
Genuine Canon Inks and Paper
ChromaLife100 is a system that preserves the lasting beauty of your photographs when combining genuine Canon products: your PIXMA printer, ink and photo paper.
Light, heat, humidity and gases in the air can all cause photos to fade over time, whether they are silver halide photos or inkjet photos. Canon has developed ChromaLife100 to help inkjet photos withstand environmental conditions for more than 100 years.
ChromaLife100 is a system in which photo paper, inks and print head work together to produce long-lasting, beautiful photos.
Print head: Speed and quality
All PIXMA printers use Canon’s exclusive FINE print head technology. Microscopic nozzles fire off tiny micro-droplets with pinpoint accuracy. Smaller nozzles mean more of them can be packed onto the print head, so higher speeds can be reached with no compromise in quality.
Photo paper: Instant dry
The FINE print head is so quick you need paper that can keep up with it. Genuine Canon photo papers have a micro-porous coating that quickly absorbs ink deep below the surface – away from the gases and light that cause fading. So you get quick-dry, colour-fast, glossy photos that can last a lifetime.
Inks: For rich, accurate colours
FINE micro-nozzles need exceptionally pure ink to avoid clogging. All genuine Canon inks are manufactured in a controlled, dust-free environment. They are specially formulated to resist the gases in the air that cause fading. High optical density ensures a wide and accurate colour gamut.
*Printing speeds explained: Canon measures its printing speeds in IPM (Images Per Minute). IPM is an ISO speed testing standard, approved by the International Standards Organisation in March 2009.
PPM (Page Per Minute), used by some manufacturers, is not a standard for inkjet printers. Every printer manufacturer has their own ‘test pages’ that are used to test speed and give vastly different results. The new ISO standard sets standardised ‘test pages’ that are to be used by any manufacturer measuring their speed in IPM, allowing comparable results across inkjet brands.
**Full HD Movie Print - Only compatible with selected Canon Digital Still Compact and Digital SLR cameras.
