Simply slide your memory card into the built-in card reader slot and print via the control panel. Or you can print out a Photo Index Sheet showing all your photos. Simply use a pen to mark the ones you want to print with their settings. The scanner then reads the sheet and automatically prints out your selected photographs. It’s easier to use than most other Photo Index Sheets.

Benefit from true-to-life colours, detailed images and crisp, clear text on plain or photo paper. Canon’s advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology™ uses a print head containing micro-nozzles that eject tiny 2 picolitre ink droplets with extraordinary precision, giving a high 4800 x 1200 dpi resolution.

You can print or copy right up to the paper's edge, without any border. Using special photo or glossy paper, you can produce ready-to-frame photos on A4, 4” x 6” and 5” x 7” sizes.

Get outstanding mono or colour copies, at a fast speed. For scanning, a special CCD sensor produces a high 1200 x 2400 dpi resolution. Scan photos or even pages of thick books and magazines thanks to the handy Z-lid. Or scan several photos all in one go using the Multi-Photo mode. The images are then separated and stored as individual files.

The SmartBase MP370 looks as good as the photo quality prints it produces. The Z-shape design adds a touch of class to any surroundings, while saving space. An ingenious Print Tray opens up automatically when printing or copying starts, to catch your output.
