Detailed Features

Compact, colour all-in-one

Convenient and easy to use this stylish all-in-one, with a modern black and white design, offers excellent colour quality for small businesses. Network-ready, the multifunctional device makes it simple to share full colour printing, copying and scanning across small workgroups, boosting productivity.

Superior quality output

Canon’s advanced imaging technologies faithfully reproduce vibrant colours and deliver sharp, black text that enable you to make an immediate impact with high- quality output. Automatic Image Refinement delivers up to 2400 x 600 dpi printing. The i-SENSYS MF8040Cn prints and copies at 8 pages per minute (ppm) in colour and 12 ppm mono. To accelerate workflows within small workgroups there is a 50-sheet Automatic Document Feeder and little time is lost waiting for output with a quick First Copy Out Time. With Canon’s Quick First-Print technologies, there’s also minimal delay on printing and copying straight from sleep mode.

Simple to operate

For extreme ease of use, conveniently-placed one touch solution keys enable an even greater user experience. These give direct access to key features including quick scanning direct to your PC and eco-copying, which combines several pages into a single print out, reducing paper usage and saving costs.


All the essential information needed to operate the machine is shown on the clear, backlit 5-line LCD display. Intuitive menus allow users to work more productively and navigate between different functions quickly – including features like scan to USB, which make document distribution easier.

Lower running costs

Save energy and cut your costs, along with your carbon footprint. The energy- efficient i-SENSYS MF8040Cn is Energy Star certified with low Typical Energy Consumption (TEC). Canon’s On-Demand fixing technology also means it has market leading low energy consumption in sleep mode.
