Exceptional Resolution: 1,856 precision nozzles create exceptional resolutionup to 9600 x 2400 color dpi.1 More nozzles = high quality.
Fine Detail: 1 picoliter sized ink droplets produce exceptionally detailed photos.
Click-Connect-Print: Or, just capture an image with a PictBridge ready digital camera/DV camcorder, then connect and print!
High-end faxing: Fax at up to 33.6 Kbps2 in color/B&W, store 40 speed-dial codes, and receive 150 incoming pages3 into memory.
High-quality scans: Produce impressive 1200-dpi scans, with vibrant 48-bit color depth.
Handles big jobs: The automatic document feeder holds 30 originals, so it's easy to copy, scan or fax multipage documents.
Copy/scan thick originals: Produce clean copies/scans of thick items that do not lie flat on the platen.
Faster data: The USB 2.0 interface enables the fastest possible image transfers and scanning speeds.4
Smart Copying: Dual Color Gamut Processing Technology automatically optimizes copy quality based on the type of originals you are copying.
Canon Generation Green
Generation Green is Canon's new environmental initiative. This program encompasses eligible Scanners, PIXMA Inkjet Printers and imageCLASS laser printers. Generation Green is designed to provide business partners, customers and consumers a way to learn about the environmentally-friendly approach that Canon is taking to design many of its current and future products and solutions; for example, possible cost savings through energy efficiency. The MP530 has the following Generation Green characteristics:
Auto Duplexing (2 sided printing) -Using this feature can save up to 50% of your paper supply.
Individual Ink Tanks - The individual ink tanks may reduce the amount of wasted ink from cartridges as compared to a composite 4 color cartridge, by allowing users to replace individual color tanks rather than entire color cartridges.
4 in 1, 2 in 1 Printing - This option allows users to place multiple pages on 1 page, saving up to 75% of your paper supply.
ENERGY STAR - Qualified products are 25% more efficient than conventional models. By using less energy, these products reduce greenhouse gas emissions and saves energy as well as money.
RoHS Compliance - This is a directive from the european Union that restricts the use of hazardous materials found in electronic products. This product restricts the the use of cadmium, mercury, lead, hexavalent chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyls (PBB) and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDE).
Use of Recycled Plastics - Recycled Plastics are used in the power supply casing.
Resolution may vary based on printer driver setting. Color ink droplets can be placed with a horizontal pitch of 1/9600 of an inch at minimum.
The Public Switched Telephone Network currently supports fax modem speeds of 28.8 Kbps or lower, depending on telephone line conditions. Sending and receiving fax machines need to conform to ITU-T V.34 guidelines.
Approximate 3 seconds-per-page fax transmission time is based on ITU-T chart #1(MMR/standard mode) at 33.6Kbps modem speed when transmitting to another V.34 fax machine. USB 2.0 Hi-Speed requires Windows XP, 2000 or Mac OS X operating systems. For Windows 98, Me and Mac OS X v.10.2 to 10.2.6 operating systems, the printer will operate at USB 1.1 specifications.
PPM print speeds are based on the highest speed printer driver mode using black and white and color text patterns. Photo print speeds are based on the default mode driver setting using photo test pattern(s) and Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy paper. Print speed measured as soon as first page begins to feed into printer and will vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, types of paper used and page coverage. See www.usa.canon.com/printspeed for additional details. CPM copy speeds are based on fast mode setting using plain paper. Copy speeds may vary based on document complexity, copy mode, page coverage and number of copies.
