All specifications subject to change without notice.

Print speed may vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, page coverage, type of paper used etc.

Ink yield may vary depending on texts/photos printed, applications software used, print mode and type of paper used. For yield information see www.canon-europe.com/ink/yield

* Page yield of ink bottle used for initial setup is lower than the replacement as a certain amount of ink is consumed to fill the print head during setup. Page yield is the estimated value based on Canon's individual test method using the ISO/IEC 24712 colour chart and continuous printing simulation with the replacement ink bottles after initial setup.

Black and colour page yields are not to be combined.

Page yield varies significantly depending on contents printed and other factors.

** Measured by international standards in default mode. During successive printing, the printer may slow down the operation to prevent the internal temperature from rising.

  1. Ink droplets can be placed with a minimum pitch of 1/4800 inch
  2. A4 document print speed on plain paper is measured based on average of ESAT in Office Category Test of ISO/IEC 24734 standard.
  3. A4 document print speed on plain paper is measured based on average of ESAT in Office Category Test of ISO/IEC 24734 standard.
  4. Photo print speed is based on default driver setting using ISO/JIS-SCID N2 standard on Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy II and does not take into account data processing time on host computer.
  5. Page Yield is the estimated value based on Canon individual test method using the ISO/IEC 24712 chart and continuous printing simulation with the replacement ink bottles after initial setup.
  6. Page Yield is the estimated value based on Canon individual test method using the ISO/IEC 29103 chart and continuous printing simulation with the replacement ink bottles after initial setup.
  7. Plain Paper(A4, B/W). Acoustic Noise is measured based on ISO7779 standard.
  8. Print: When printing ISO/JIS-SCID N2 on A4 size plain paper using default settings.
  9. Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value: TEC value was calculated assuming the unit will be constantly switched among operational mode, sleep mode, and power-off mode for 5 days, and that it will be either in sleep or power-off mode for the remaining 2 days within the same week. The TEC value of this product is calculated by Canon on their own accord using TEC measurement procedure regulated in International ENERGY STAR Program.
