Canon Pixma MP980

The Canon Pixma MP980 is a capable all-in-one device that prints, faxes, copies and documents, full color, resolution 4800 x 9 ,600-pixel thanks to a six-bay single color ink cartridge that includes a special gray color for the photo in grayscale clear impressions. The AU $ 449 lends MP980 helps amateur photography enthusiasts with a large 3.5-Inch Lcd Screen, a control panel easy to use, and a media card reader, but we are dissatisfied difficult with the wireless setup, the output speeds slower than average, and the inflated price.


The Pixma MP980 AIO is the same shape as the rest of the Canon MP series, but this year's model shrinks the beam, measuring 47cm high by 38.5cm wide by 19.9cm deep. The all-in-one weighs 10.7kg strong due to the automatic duplexer built in the back for duplexing, so you probably will not want to move much in your workspace. Silver and shiny black body professionalism oozes style, and the scanner lid feel so flush against the main body that you can barely see what is there. In addition, the main output tray and control panel times in order to save space.

The control panel is based on the top and houses a bright color LCD 3.5-inch screen similar to the Pixma MP970. The menu is arranged in a circle, and if you use the touch dial on the base panel to access the different settings. The wheel and the "OK" buttons offer one-click satisfaction with each selection, but there is also a four-way directional pad that surrounds the disk if you do not feel comfortable with the wheel. Most of the time, we preferred the scroll wheel, but the buttons are also easy to use when you know exactly where to go.

The rest of the pad contains the rest of the shortcut buttons, including a Navi button to help with on-screen menus, a start button, black and instant keys back, two buttons for increasing and decreasing the number of copies, and a stop button to cancel a work in progress. Finally, two buttons on the screen sit directly below the screen to navigate the onscreen menus.

The printer handles the paper input 150-sheet main belt and another 150-sheet tray that folds out of the back. We always prefer two input trays by one and found that the use of the main tray and plain paper tray back smaller photo is much more convenient than constantly changing sizes. We have a complaint with the quality of construction of the main tray, that leaves the bottom and it feels as if made of cheap plastic. Only time will reveal the true durability of the tray, but we are disheartened by its weak feels out of the box.

Canon uses six individual ink cartridges ChromaLife100 including a dedicated gray cartridge for better quality black and white photo. At the time of writing, all color ink dye-based black inks can be found online for around AU $ 18 each.


The PIXMA MP980 offers a collection of features that make life much easier for the photo enthusiast at home. You can connect the printer to a computer via a standard USB cable, or to your network with the Ethernet port on the back, or even wireless technology with print server integrated 802.11b / g wireless. There's also a PictBridge USB port on the bottom and a full media reader to transfer your credit card and print photos directly from a Digital Camera. Unlike the competition, Canon does not include a wireless setup tutorial with your software, so they could find similar to our own problems during installation, requiring a USB connection. After several days of trying to get our router to connect printer finally just started cleaning and reinstalling the driver. After that, everything went very well, but it could take a couple tries before your system is connected The Canon PIXMA iP1000 .

The copier in the MP980 has all the features you'd expect from an MFP. You can enlarge the original up to 400 percent or just fit the entire document to a page. Other special features include two-sided copying, borderless copy, exact duplication, cut copy, and 2-in-1 and 4-in-1 photomontages.

Exploration is also typical, with choices saving that include sending the file directly to your PC, such as email attachments, scanned in PDF format, or simply open an application. You can save all documents in TIFF, JPEG, bitmap, or PDF files, and the scanner now supports the film and also negative. Holders of negative slides and are accessible under the guard of paper under the lid. The scanner supports document sizes up to 27.9 cm by 21.5 cm, but the fixed hinge makes it difficult to stretch the scanner cover thicker documents and books.


The PIXMA MP980 showed significant improvements in speed through the card with the exception of the color test of the text, where the MP970 scored 7.85 pages per minute to 5.75 pages per minute MP980. Compared with other competition, however, the MP980 it was average. He was unable to get ahead of the chart-topping TX800FW Epson Stylus Photo and Fax Premium HP Photosmart All-in-one.
