Canon’s is a substantial printer with a generous 50-sheet ADF fitted into the lid of its flatbed scanner. Set into an indent in the lid is the control panel, which offers a 62mm LCD screen, together with a number pad for fax-dialling and other control buttons.
This display isn’t a touchscreen, but with three soft buttons underneath the panel and a four-way navigation pad, it’s easy enough to work your way around the comprehensive menu system. As well as the obvious functions to Copy, Scan and Fax, there are Cloud and Access Medium options, which cover direct online access and uploading to and downloading from USB drives.
There’s a single paper tray, which can hold 250 sheets of paper from 15 x 10cm up to A4; there's no single-sheet feed for special media. Each time you change media, the printer requests details of the new type and size.
Both the tray and its cover, which extends to become the output tray, increase the overall footprint of the printer. It ends up being closer in size to a colour laser all-in-one.
Canon rates at a healthy 16ppm for mono and 11ppm for colour. In our tests, the mono print speed varied between 12.5ppm on the five-page document and 13.5ppm on the 20-page one. Not quite up to the mark, but still a good speed for an inkjet, not bad against a mono laser, and very good against any colour laser.
