New advanced features include:
Automatic Suggestion, which searches your PC for stored images and displays forgotten photos on the desktop via a slideshow. The images can then be edited and printed through My Image Garden.
Automatic Layout uses image assorting technology to recognise images and automatically recommend the optimum layout for print. Face recognition software also detects faces in photos and automatically groups images together, making it easy to locate shots of particular friends and family.

The most noticeable feature of this one is its low profile - while in width and depth its dimensions are typical for a multifunction printer, it is a lot smaller in height than most, so looks less imposing on the desk. It's also the first printer I've owned with no manual feed tray for paper - there are two separate paper cartridges that sit inside the printer, one for normal paper and one for photo paper, which is a lot neater than having to fiddle with flaps and load new paper every time you change from one to the other. The printer uses five separate ink tanks - three colours, black for text and black for photos - which makes it a lot more economical to run than lower-priced printers with a single colour cartridge. It will print on both sides of the paper, and includes a tray to enable CD labels to be printed directly onto printable discs. One notable difference from old Canon printers is that the printhead is fixed into the printer rather than being replaceable by the user - that said, the printhead died on my last Canon, and it was cheaper to buy this new printer than a replacement printhead, so this is unlikely to be a problem!
Set-up was easy enough - a few tricky bits to negotiate due to the peculiarities of my WLAN, but I was up and running, printing and scanning wirelessly from my PC within half an hour of opening the box. (If you're a Mac user, it's even easier - no need to fiddle with the supplied driver CD - the Mac just sees the printer and downloads the relevant drivers automatically.Read more ›
Cons: The print time from clicking print on my computer to the print finishing is about 3 minutes. It receives it in seconds but processes and makes a lot of clicking noises and then when it finally prints it's VERY SLOW. And three days after setting it up and putting the ink cartridges in on the Cyan and Magenta cartridges 1/4 of it has already gone even though I have printed no photos and mostly B&W text with some small graphics.
I miss the convenience of the manual feed for my envelopes as I have to remove the paper from the lower cassette and put an envelope in there which is followed by several seconds of whirring and clanking before the printer is ready to print. After putting the paper back into the cassette it goes through the same whirring and clanking as it readies itself again. It works but is not as easy as slipping an envelope into a manual feed.
Another review mentioned that this printer prints the last page first and this is indeed the default setting but is easily changed in Printer Properties.
All in all, this is an excellent printer/scanner which gives good results and the Wi-Fi is a bonus but I wish I still had my old MP610 which was quick and quiet and a Prince among printers.
Edit at 12/01/2013: Regarding my above comment regarding CD Disk Labels, practice hasn't made perfect and I was still struggling to make the software do what I wanted but I've just found out that the CD-LabelPrint software that was supplied with my old MP610 printer works just fine with the MG5450 so I prefer to use that as I find it much more flexible in use.
That aside it performs really well although a little noisily at times. The benefit for me is the wi-fi facility as I wanted to position it well away from my PC.
Just hope my kids don't use too much ink before more reasonably priced inks appear on the market.
