The PIXMA MX420 Wireless Inkjet Office All-In-One Printer from Canon, compatible with Mac and Windows computer systems, is an all-in-one printer that supports standard USB 2.0 and Ethernet connectivity as well as printing via Wi-Fi. In addition to wireless printing from your computer, you can submit print jobs your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Android phone.

The printer features a built-in 30-sheet Auto Document Feeder for fast copying, scanning, and faxing. It supports Super G3 High-Speed Fax for fast communication. And its Dual Color Gamut Processing Technology ensures that your copies are just as good as the original document. A 2.5" LCD display is present to control the printer -- there's no need to change settings from a computer. A built-in card reader allows you to print directly from a memory card. You'll be able to browse through the photos on a card using the printer's LCD, making it easy to choose which ones you'd like to print.

The included software makes it easy to convert your scans to PDF format -- complete with password protection for enhanced security. The printer can also print still frames from videos recorded with Canon EOS DSLR and Canon PowerShot digital cameras. You can connect your camera directly thanks to the PictBridge interface.

The included Easy-WebPrint EX software makes it easier to print pages from the web. You'll be able to select which part of the pages print, so you won't waste paper and ink printing navigation bars and the like. Canon offers an optional Bluetooth adapter for the printer, allowing you to further extend its wireless capabilities.

Terrific Resolution
This level of quality is achieved by 4800 x 1200 maximum color dpi thanks to Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) with a patented print head firing ink droplets as small as 2pl. This delivers superb quality and detail in both your business documents and photos.
High Performance Ink Cartridges
These two genuine Canon ink cartridges contain specially formulated inks for great document and photo quality. One is a Pigment Black cartridge for crisp, professional text and one is a multi-color cartridge for pictures. Both are easy to use and replace.
This system combines enhanced FINE print head technology with select genuine Canon photo papers and inks for beautiful borderless photos that will last up to 300 years when stored in an archival-quality photo album.
Fully-Integrated Auto Document Feeder
The built-in 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) makes it easy to copy, scan or fax multiple documents without having to load them one page at a time. Its full integration also makes it easier to place the printer into tight workspace areas.
2.5" LCD
Easily view, select and edit your images for simple computer-free printing. No downloading needed, just choose your picture and print!
Auto Scan Mode
With one press of the Scan button your original is automatically recognized and saved in the correct format.
Dual Color Gamut Technology
Copy with confidence as this built-in technology automatically optimizes your originals so copies stay true to it time after time, copy after copy.
Full HD Movie Print
Full HD Movie Print software turns your favorite HD movie clips captured with compatible Canon EOS Digital SLR or PowerShot cameras into beautiful prints.
Quick Start
Powering up your printer is now faster than ever. After pressing the power button you can begin inputting commands in mere seconds. So, full operation is possible in a much shorter time.
Auto Photo Fix II
This built-in technology automatically categorizes your images into one of five types - Portrait, Scenery, Night Scenery, Snapshot with Scenery, and Snapshot with Night Scenery - then applies optimal image and multi-zone exposure correction. So, unexposed areas of the photo will be optimized, area by area and faces that are backlit and under-exposed will automatically be brightened with correct color cast to help ensure more accurate skin tones for gorgeous images.
Built-In Wireless
Print and scan wirelessly from any Wi-Fi enabled computer around the house.
Built-in Ethernet
This wired LAN interface lets you connect to a home or office network, with connected computers able to share printer functions and display the printer's status at any moment.
Super G3 Fax
The business fax standard for color and PC facsimiles on plain paper meets the home office workhorse with 20 coded speed dials and up to 50 incoming pages.
Mobile Printing
Print your photos wirelessly from compatible iPad, iPhone 4, 3G, 3GS, iPod touch and Android devices.
Memory Cards / USB / PictBridge & Optional Bluetooth
Don't feel like using a computer? No problem. Print directly from compatible memory cards, a PictBridge cable from your digital camera, DV camcorder or camera phone, or the optional BU-30 wireless Bluetooth unit.
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed
Plug the cable into your PC for a super-fast connection for your data transfers.
