Specifications are subject to change without notice. Screens, output images, and images are simulated.
* Warranty is effective for three (3) years from date of original purchase or the printing of 80,000 pages, whichever comes first. Warranty program is subject to certain conditions and restrictions. See www.usa.canon.com/maxify-gx-series-warranty for details.

  1. Requires a smart device with the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app installed and connected to the desired active wireless network to complete cableless setup.
  2. Requires an Internet connection and the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app, available for free on the App Store and at Google Play. Compatible with iPad, iPhone 3GS or later, and iPod touch 3rd generation or later devices running iOS 13.0 or later, and Android™ mobile devices running Android 5.0 or later. Your device must be connected to the same working network with wireless 802.11 b/g/a/n capability as your printer. Requires a compatible cloud service account and is subject to that cloud service account’s Terms of Service. Certain exceptions may apply.
  3. AirPrint functionality requires a compatible iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch device running iOS 7.0 or later, and an AirPrint-enabled printer connected to the same network as your iOS device. A printer connected to the USB port of your Mac, PC, AirPort Base station, or Time Capsule is not supported.
  4. Requires AndroidTM mobile device with Android 4.4 operating system or later with Mopria® Print Service pre-loaded with that device and the compatible PIXMA printer on the same wireless network.

Page yield of color inks is an average yield of cyan, magenta and yellow inks combined. Page yield of included ink bottles used for initial setup is lower than the replacement ink bottles, as a certain amount of ink is consumed to fill into the print head during setup (charging the print head initially). Actual page yield and cost per print will vary significantly based on content printed, ink levels maintained in all four ink reservoirs, and other factors. Page yield is the estimated value based on Canon individual testing method using ISO/IEC 24712 test chart and continuous printing simulation with full set of replacement ink bottles after initial setup.
  7. Wireless printing and scanning requires a working network with wireless 802.11b/g/a/n capability, operating at 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz. Wireless performance may vary based on terrain and distance between the printer and wireless network clients.
  8. Document print speeds are the averages of ESAT in Office Category Test for the default simplex mode, ISO/IEC 24734. Print speed may vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, page coverage, type of paper used etc. See www.usa.canon.com/ipm for additional details.
