The high price of ink may make this option unfeasible for large-scale printing projects. The unit contains a number of well-thought-out additions. The three media slots are hidden behind a tiny front-hinged door.

The flatbed scanner unit is supported by the vertical support bar when it is lifted, and a replacement animation for the ink cartridges shows on the color LCD when the scanner bed is raised.

When you lift the little lid on top, you’ll find a color LCD and control panel with a compass-style navigation wheel and neatly labeled buttons. The screen is 1.8 inches in diagonal.

Photos of landscapes and text look wonderful, however people’s skin tones are quite orange in these images. See Canon PIXMA MP495 Driver
