  • 1Description

Easily print borderless photos as large as 8.5 x 11" right at home. Its HD Movie Print feature lets you to take a frame from an HD movie recorded on an EOS or PowerShot camera and print it as a photo. In addition to photos and documents, the MG5420 can print directly onto inkjet-printable CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays. The printer can also be used to create passport and ID photos as well as index prints.

The MG5420 features automatic double-sided printing, allowing you to cut your paper consumption by up to 50%. Canon's Easy-WebPrint EX lets you collect content from different websites into a single document which can be printed or saved as a PDF.

Scanning can be initiated from a computer or from the unit itself. In addition to scanning via a USB connection to a computer, you can scan to a memory card or to any Wi-Fi-enabled computer on your network. The scanner automatically detects whether you are scanning a photo or document and applies the appropriate settings. Should the document or image need to be retouched, the MG5420's Auto Document Fix and Auto Photo Fix II can correct issues such as faded text, over and under-exposure, and incorrect skin tones.

Use the built-in copy function to duplicate 1 and 2-sided documents. The copier can enlarge or shrink images and documents anywhere between 25% and 400% of the original size. Other copy features include 4-in-1 and 2-in-1 copying, auto exposure and intensity, fit to page, and color correction.

In addition to USB connectivity, the MG5420 includes Wi-Fi connectivity so wireless devices can share the unit. The printer is compatible with AirPrint so you can print directly from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch without installing any drivers.
