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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
