Compact All-In-One delivering premium print quality and functionality

This affordable All-In-One offers superior 1pl, 9600dpi* prints for demanding home users. Features include Easy-Scroll Wheel, PictBridge and memory card slots for increased versatility.

Photo printing

The PIXMA MP540 offers superior photolab-quality prints with 9600×2400dpi* print resolution and 1pl ink droplets for smooth tonal gradations and virtually grain-free prints. The ChromaLife100+ system** combines Canon’s FINE print head, new dye-based Single Inks and certain Canon genuine photo paper to deliver long-lasting, beautiful photos.

Single Inks

Individually replaceable tanks minimise ink wastage and save money. New formulation dye-based inks of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black produce superior photo prints, while a dedicated pigment Black delivers crisp, sharp text documents.

Ease of use

The Easy-Scroll Wheel and TFT display facilitates simple navigation through the menus and offers a visual display of your images. Quick Start allows operation within seconds, and the self-opening paper tray means that even if you forget to open the paper tray, your printer won’t.


The PIXMA MP540’s two paper trays increase media flexibility, allowing the user to pre-load both photo and plain paper. PictBridge compatibility and memory card slots also benefit digital camera users, enabling them to print directly from their camera without needing a PC.

Editing software

Manage your creative projects and create photo albums and calendars with the bundled Easy-PhotoPrint EX software. The user-friendly software also includes Auto Photo Fix for image correction options and red-eye reduction.


Enjoy high-quality scans with the 2400×4800dpi resolution scanner. Advanced MP Navigator EX software manages your scanned images and includes PDF editing features and a range of image correction options. Auto Scan Mode automatically recognises the document or photo you’re scanning and chooses the appropriate settings accordingly. There is also the option to scan directly to memory card or USB stick for easy transfer and storage of images.
