I am very happy with my purchase. The only thing it won't do is fax, but I can go to the library for the 2 faxes I may send a year. It was easy to install and is easy to operate. had the absolute best price anywhere and the shipping was fast!!!

Not That Happy

by R.E.S. on 1/18/2012

Lets start with the Pros: Ya can’t beat the price, and it’s a stylish little Printer, and worked great. For a couple of days anyway… Cons: Day 2, the printer started printing washed-out color pages with Very noticeable vertical lines through the page. I cannot correct this problem no matter what I try. However, the black print is fine. Over all, I am not happy, and the print quality is not acceptable, so the printer Goes back! Read More

Product Overview

The PIXMA MP280 Inkjet Photo All-In-One is a compact, stylish and high quality product that will fit virtually in any area of your home. Its maximum 4800 x 1200 color dpi1 is combined with Canon’s patented Hybrid Ink System. So, you’ll have a pigment black ink for crisp text and dye ink for beautiful photos up to 8.5” x 11” all with outstanding quality.

The all-new Full HD Movie Print software turns your favorite HD movie moments captured with select Canon EOS or PowerShot cameras into beautiful, borderless photo prints! The MP280 also features Auto Photo Fix II. This technology automatically analyzes and applies image correction, red-eye removal and multi-zone exposure correction for beautiful images. When printing your photos, realize the power of the ChromaLife100+ when using genuine Canon inks and photo papers so your photos can be shared and preserved for generations.

For the scanner in you the all-new Auto Document Fix automatically delivers advanced image analysis and area-by-area data correction for text that’s easy to read, and pictures that maintain color tone and contrast. While Auto Scan Mode automatically recognizes the type of original, then scans and saves the suitable settings. Do you want to easily print from the web? Canon’s Easy-WebPrint EX lets you print what you want how you off the web. Collect, combine and edit multiple web pages while creating your own layout with text and pictures.
