Our review

The essential to remember

The Canon Pixma G7050 is a color printer without cartridge, similar to the Pixma G6050 tested on It stands out by adding an automatic document feeder (ADF) with a capacity of 35 sheets and by offering a fax function, which makes it a so-called 4-in-1 printer.

The Pixma G7050 therefore retains the many qualities of the G6050, such as its very low cost per page (0.8 euro cent, even 0.3 euro cent in black and white only). Otherwise, it turns out to be just as wide (40.3 cm) and deep (36.9 cm) with the shutters closed and its document feeder makes it take a few more centimeters in height, for a total of 23.4 cm against 19, 5 cm for the G6050. In addition, its control panel has many buttons and the configuration of the printer can be tedious.


By attaching a document feeder to it, the Pixma G7050 retains the many qualities of the G6050. In addition to its ridiculous cost per page, it turns out to be a printer that does everything. Compared to a color laser printer, it is distinguished by its honorable performance in photo, although its print speeds are not comparable. We regret, however, a control panel that stains in view of its high price. The investment in a G7050 can nevertheless be quickly amortized and its healthier economic model should appeal to those who are in their umpteenth cartridge printer.
