    Greater connectivity for easy sharing

    This compact and stylish, black and white multifunctional, ideal for the modern office, provides the All-in-One convenience of a professional quality printer, scanner, copier and fax – where every feature is designed to work seamlessly together. Network ready, its productivity boosting features include user friendly network scanning direct to your PC. Its space-saving design also makes it easier to place this multifunctional device virtually anywhere.

    Fast, high quality output

    There’s no waiting for the professional looking documents you need, with a mono laser print and copy speed of 25ppm. An exceptionally high 1200 x 600 dpi enhanced resolution ensures impressively detailed documents with sharp text and smooth grayscale graphics.

    Save paper and time

    Automatic double-sided printing saves money by reducing paper usage and produces professional-looking documents.

    Increased efficiency

    The versatile, tilting display allows you to adjust the i-SENSYS MF4870dn to suit your way of working. You can set the panel vertically when using it on the desktop or position it to face upwards if you prefer to work standing over the device. A large LCD display shows the information you need at a glance. Quick one-touch solution keys make scanning and copying workflows easier to set up, even for novice users, so it’s easy to send scans to file and save paper by copying several images to one sheet.

    Market leading energy efficiency

    Cut energy costs with no impact on performance through Canon’s Quick First-Print technologies. With this technology there’s no long wait for your documents as the device is quick to print from sleep mode. It has a low energy consumption of just 1.4 Watts in sleep mode, reducing its environmental impact, and a market leading TEC rating.

    Quiet Mode

    For quieter operation in any busy environment, Quiet Mode ensures less noisy printing so you can work without distraction.

    All-in-One cartridge

    The All-in-One cartridges – which combine the toner, drum and cleaning units to reduce maintenance and increase reliability – minimise consumables and are easily recyclable.
