Canon PIXMA MP500

Canon PIXMA MP500 All-In-One Inkjet Photo Printer, Copier, and Scanner

PIXMA MP500 is an All-In-One Inkjet Photo Printer that offers the performance and AE copy features that will automatically optimize the reproduction quality based on the original type you are ripping. When you scan photos or graphics, the MP500 will reproduce high-quality 1200-dpi color depths up to 48-bit dynamic. Plus, advanced paper handling also gives you some smart options.

Its multiple paper paths also allow you to store photo papers stored in one tray and plain paper on the other so that you can print photos or documents without having to replace paper. With a 2.5-inch color LCD viewer, you can evaluate each of your pictures in beautiful colors, then upgrade them before printing!

The Canon ChromaLife100 system incorporates the MP500 Photo print head technology of Photo All-In-One FINE and the ink developed with Canon photo paper options for results that rival many conventional photos. While with a smart LED ink tank, your LED light will keep blinking when the ink is running low and blinks faster when the ink comes close to empty.
