A big LCD and scroll wheel make the MP960 a snap to use. This MFP prints top-quality photos quickly, and it scans film.

Manufacturer’s Description

The power to create is right here at your fingertips. With the 7-color ink system you'll produce photographs that are richer and more detailed than ever before. Scans of photos, 35mm slides and negatives will yield superb 4800 x 4800 color dpi results. And with the included Dual Color Gamut Processing Technology (DCGPT), even your copies will be faithful to your originals. The new Easy-Scroll Wheel makes operation so much easier, and the new 3.5" TFT display lets you preview images in high definition, then enhance them before printing.
