Efficient scanning and copying
Scan and copy in high quality detail with the 1200dpi scanner. Auto Scan Mode automatically recognises what is being scanned – a photo or a document – before saving it as the most suitable file type. Enhance the legibility of scanned documents by making text and images clearer and more vibrant using Auto Document Fix.
