Canon brings colour to multifunction office product

Colour technology has been given to the Canon's latest multifunction desktop product -- the MultiPASS C50, which houses in one unit a colour printer and copier, scanner, plain paper fax and PC fax.

Priced at $999, the MultiPASS C50 prints at a resolution of 720 x 360dpi and at speeds of up to two pages/minute for colour and five pages/minute for monochrome.

The MultiPASS' scanner features 24-bit colour, an optical resolution of 300dpi and an enhanced resolution of 600dpi. An automatic feeder allows up to 20 A4 pages to be scanned simply.

The unit can operate as a standalone copier, with the ability to print up to 99 copies in monochrome and single pages in full colour. Copies can be reduced by 70 percent, 80 per cent and 90 per cent, Canon says.

The fax component of the MultiPASS features transmission speeds of six pages/second and memory storage for up to 42 pages of incoming and outgoing faxes. Faxing via the PC desktop is also possible with the MultiPASS.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
