Canon PIXMA MX420
Inkjet Photo Printers
Perfect for the home or office
Featuring a stylish all-black design, this productive All-In-One gives you everything you need for the home office environment. Print, copy, scan and fax capabilities as well as Wi-Fi and network connectivity allow you to place this multifunctional wherever best suits.
Canon’s FINE technology with minimum 2pl ink drops and up to 4800x1200dpi print resolution ensures glorious colours and crisp text – great for business documents or photos.
Quick and easy operation
An intuitive 6.2cm TFT display on the device makes it easy to view selected functions and preview images prior to printing. When copying, a Reserve Copy function lets you scan in the next document while the previous document is being processed to save time.
An integrated 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder means scanning, copying or faxing of large documents can be done quickly and with minimal effort. Scan and save to a compact pdf ensures a small file size, ideal for saving or e-mailing.
Enjoy print speeds of 8.7 ipm in mono or 5.0 ipm in colour. Quick Start means this All-In-One is ready to go seconds after switching on. A 10x15 cm borderless photo can also be printed in approximately 42 seconds.
Scan to USB or memory card
A USB and memory card port on the front allows PDFs and JPEGs to be scanned to either – without a PC. Bluetooth connectivity can be purchased as an option to print from Bluetooth compatible devices.
33.6kbps Super G3 faxing is fast and reliable. Incoming faxes can be saved to a memory card or USB key – so you can view them without printing each one – reducing print costs.
Print photos from movies
Turn your Canon digital camera movie moments into beautiful prints with Canon’s Full HD Movie Print feature. Simply play your movie on a PC and capture the frame or frames to print.
