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 print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
