Do more from home

This mid-range Photo All-in-One is a great multi-purpose tool for the entire family. It’s packed with features for photo document printing: two paper trays, Easy-Scroll Wheel and 4 Single Ink tanks.

Photo printing

Enjoy photo lab quality prints with fine detail and smooth colour gradations, thanks to 2pl ink droplets and a high 4800×1200dpi* print resolution.

Print a 10×15cm borderless photo in approx. 46 seconds in Standard Mode*. Print photos directly from your memory card and PictBridge-ready digital camera or camcorder.

Auto Image Fix automatically enhances your photos. Apply Red Eye Removal, face brightening and more with the image editing software.

ChromaLife100** delivers beautiful, long-lasting prints with longevity up to 100 years.

Document printing

Print documents at up to 30ppm in mono or 20ppm in colour.


Copy at up to 30cpm in mono or 20cpm in colour. Advanced copy technology ensures exceptional colour performance.

Text and image separation gives optimal results when text, graphics and photos are combined. Copy the exact area you want with frame erase, trimming and masking functions.


2400dpi resolution delivers great colour scans. Scan straight to PC, email or PDF. MP Navigator EX software makes every stage of operation easier, from image search to PDF document editing.

Scan your existing photo prints and re-print them to share the duplicates with family and friends, or scan faded photos and bring them back to life with the easy-to-use software.


The crystal clear 5.0cm TFT screen makes PC-free operation fun and easy. Simply spin the Easy-Scroll Wheel to select options on the screen. View, select, edit and print – all at a touch.

Single Inks

All 4 Single Ink tanks can be replaced separately, minimising ink wastage and maximising savings. A smart LED light flashes to alert you when a colour is running low or needs replacement.


Two paper trays hold photo and plain paper. Quick-Start gets your PIXMA going fast, with instant use of functions.

Operating systems

Windows and Mac OS X compatible.
