Manufacturer’s Description

The PIXMA MP830 can print up to 30 ppm (29 cpm) in black and up to 24 ppm in color (24cpm), and a 4" x 6" borderless print takes about 36 seconds. The USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface enables the fastest image transfers and scanning speeds possible today. Plus, with direct photo printing, just connect to any PictBridge compatible digital camera or DV camcorder, and print. You can even download images directly off of CompactFlash, Micro Drive, SmartMedia, Memory Stick Pro, SD and MultiMedia Cards. Plus, select the images on the extra-large 2.5" LCD color viewer.The unit's ContrastPLUS 5-color ink system - four dye-based inks plus a pigment-based black ink - produces exceptional photos, along with laser-quality text. Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a high-performance 3,584-nozzle print head that ejects precise and consistent droplets as small as 1 picoliter. With that, you get outstanding resolutions up to 9600 x 2400 color dpi and clear, detailed images.This high-end office All-In-One does it all. The auto duplex Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) can read both sides of a 2 sided document, letting you copy or scan a 2 sided original without having to flip it over by hand! The ADF can hold 35 pages of originals at one time, making it much easier to copy, scan or fax multi-page documents. And when combined with the unit's dual paper trays, the ADF gives you the capability for high-capacity copying, even of 2 sided originals. The AE (Auto Exposure) Copy
