Photo and document printing

A resolution of up to 4800x1200dpi with tiny ink droplets of 2pl* gives superb-quality images with accurate colour reproduction. It is possible to print a 10x15cm borderless photo in approximately 45 seconds* with the FINE Cartridges.

The ChromaLife100+ system** combines the PIXMA MP260, Canon’s FINE Cartridges and certain Canon genuine photo papers to create beautiful, long-lasting photo prints.

Two FINE Cartridges are used, black and colour. The black is pigment ink for crisp, sharp text printing, while the colour dye-based inks are used for graphics and images, and enable more glossy photo printing.

Photo prints without a PC

You can print photos directly – without the need for a PC – using the memory card slots on this All-In-One. Simply insert your memory card into the built-in card slots and select the images you want to print using the Photo Index Sheet.

Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint EX makes it simple to print calendars, albums and photos, and incorporates the enhanced Auto Photo Fix, which automatically corrects photos – including red-eye correction. Canon’s MP Navigator EX software helps manage and edit scanned images and documents, and includes an OCR function to convert printed text into electronic documents and simple scan to PDF.

Easy-to-use features

A range of intuitive functions has been included to enhance ease of use. Quick Start has the All-In-One operational within seconds, while for hassle-free printing there is a self-opening paper tray.

FINE Cartridges deliver high-quality document and photo printing and they also make cartridge replacement easier with one-click installation.

Scanning

Great quality is assured with the 1200dpi scanner. The Auto Scan Mode automatically detects the type of original to be scanned – whether document or photo – and chooses optimum settings. PIXMA MP260 also features scan to memory card.
