Google MTM Hydro and get that one instead, works just as well as the wolfgang but at a fraction of the price!

This. I highly recommend it. I bought mine off Amazon. I used it and it works like a charm, and just as good as my friends with the Camspray and other re-branded foam cannons.

I just looked at your link though, and that's a foam gun, not foam cannon. The one you linked is the same Gilmour Foamaster that can be found on Amazon for around $40 shipped.

Are you using this with a regular garden hose, or do you have a pressure washer? If you have a pressure washer go with cu2mike's recommendation, or for an even cheaper alternative (albeit, not as foamy) Green Earth G-Foam Foam Blaster from homedepot at about $15 USD.

If you are going with a regular hose, what you listed is okay, or even the comparably priced Gilmour. Just note, unless you plan on using 8+oz of Maxi Sudds II (or equivalent foamy soap), you are not going to see the "foam painting" results that you may see on a lot of detailing boards, where the detailers used a pressure washer with a foam cannon. Hell even with a crap load of soap, it's not going to linger on paint all that long, though it suffices as a decent pre-soak.
