LAS VEGAS--Canon rings in the New Year with four new all-in-one printers built for the home office and small business crowd. The Pixma MX870 ($200), Pixma MX350 ($150), Pixma MX340 ($100), and Pixma iP2702 ($50) all sport a similar design to their predecessors with 2.5-inch LCD screens, Easy-Scroll jog dials, PictBridge USB support, and Ethernet/Wi-Fi connectivity, but we're particularly interested in Canon's newest software enhancements: Auto Document Fix and Auto Photo Fix II.

All four models include Auto Document Fix that improves on the printers' scanning performance by automatically sharpening and blackening text documents to increase their readability. The feature also removes the background on media documents like magazines or newspapers that also makes pages much easier to read.

Amateur photo enthusiasts will also appreciate the Auto Photo Fix II on all four new models, as well. We've tested the first iteration of this software on previous models and found that while it won't take the place of a solid Photoshop job, but its Multi-Zone Exposure Corrections and other improvements in face detection and auto-sharpening can be valuable assets for quick corrections.

Canon also recently announced the Easy-PhotoPrint EX application for the Apple iPhone--the free app is compatible with all new Canon multifunction printers and lets you wirelessly print pictures from your handset.

More photos of all four models are available after the jump.
