Very much like the older MP750, the Canon Pixma MP780 inkjet is an update of a previous model. Print speeds remain at 25-ppm black and 17-ppm color. This unit simply adds a fax function and a 350-page memory for more efficient printing. It too is designed for home users and small businesses that need faster printing than base units provide. A 35-page feeder supplies the copier function. Pricewise, it is lower than many others are but it packs more features.
The Canon PIXMA MP780 ink cartridges are made with Canon FINE (Full-lithography inkjet Nozzle Engineering) Technology and eject LUCIA pigments to give printouts precise and crisp detail and texts. Additionally, the printer holds 5 individual Canon ink cartridges to give color prints rich, vibrant, and lively finishes. This printer can print onto specialty papers such as envelopes, cards, and labels. It has a 150 sheet Input Tray which is easy to fill, as well as a convenient 35 Automatic Document Feeder for unassisted faxing, copying, or scanning of multiple pages. This printer can even print directly from your camera's media card including PictBridge enabled cameras. Another nice feature of the PIXMA MP780 is the ability to quickly send and receive faxes on its Super G3 modem.
