Enjoy print speeds of 9.7 ipm mono or 5.5 ipm colour. A 10x15 cm borderless photo is printed in approximately 46 seconds, while an A4 page copies in just 21 seconds. Quick Start means this All-In-One is ready to go seconds after switching on.
Value for money
For further savings you can print more for less, with the high yield Canon XL cartridges, which offer 50% lower cost per page.
Canon’s FINE ink technology, with minimum 2pl ink droplets and print resolution up to 4800 x 1200 dpi, delivers glorious colours and crisp text – ideal for business documents or photos.
Space-saving design and easy-to-use
The compact FastFront design means paper and ink cartridges can be loaded from the front of the printer – making it easier to fit into a busy work space. Quick Start functionality means there is no need to wait for the printer to ‘warm up’. Operation is almost instantaneous from power on, ensuring that the user can perform actions virtually straight away.
Easy to work with
The clear, Dual Function Panel with 6.2cm TFT screen has alternating keys to make it fast and simple for users to access the functions they need and preview images prior to printing. A Reserve Copy function lets you scan in the next document while the previous document is being processed to save time.
Cut costs and be eco-friendly
See how much paper and CO2 you save using the Auto Duplex Print feature that automatically prints on both sides of the paper. Additionally you can save money and print more for less, with the high yield Canon XL cartridges, which last longer and offer 50% lower cost per page.
Documents and photos can be scanned without a PC, using the USB port on the front. Optional Bluetooth connectivity is also available.
