The Canon Pixma TS6050 is a printer designed for the home user. It costs around £89.99 printer with some promotional offers giving you £20 back. The TS6050 has the ability to scan, print documents and print photographs. I personally only use it for the sole purpose of printing photographs taken on my canon g7x mark II.

Pixma TS6050 Out of the box
Out of the box you simply get the printer and the power cable. Due to its connectivity there is no need for USB, or Ethernet cable.
Offering excellent functionality for a home printer at the available cost especially if you can land on Canons promotion. Printing to the printer is very straight forward to use and setup. You have excellent app functionality. Printing from another Canon device like a CS100 Connect Station, or Camera is very simple.
The running costs are not that expensive either with an average of 2p per page using official ink. If using compatible ink your costs can drop to as little as 0.6p per page.
Printing of a photographic image is fast and good quality.
I have experienced issues when trying to print from my Android smart phone. The job is sent and the paper goes through, but nothing is printed on it. I have never experienced this problem when doing it from the G7X.
Although printing of a photographic image is good quality when dealing with document printing it can take 1 minute to print 7 normal documents, or 4 with graphics and colour.
Who Should Buy the Pixma TS6050
This printer is a nice little addition to any home. Especially if you have any other canon related products due to the interconnectivity. It is low cost cheap to run and would suite most ome users.
The 3 inch touch screen can be a little awkward to get the right button pressed. Several times it has taken me 4-5 attempts to press the OK button located in the right corner edge.
In conclusion, it is impressive how fast the Pixma TS6050 can print a high quality photo. From sending the job to printing takes under a minute.
Like most canon products there are often promotions running and at certain times of the year you can get £20 back on the purchase of the printer.
