Product Specifications

Canon copiers, printers and scanners are some of the highest performing and most popular in the world. Now you can put that high-performance to work for you in your home or office with the MultiPASS F30 multifunction peripheral (MFP). Three full-featured Canon machines in one, high-powered, compact design. The MultiPASS F30 MFP is a full-featured, flatbed color copier at heart-delivering exceptionally high-quality legal- and letter-size copies with ease. Reduce down to 25 percent and enlarge up to 400 percent. Copy in black and white at up to 17 copies per minute (cpm), up to 10 cpm in color and make up to 99 copies at a time. This same high-performance imaging system enables you to scan documents and photos at 9600 dpi in brilliant 36-bit color. Plus, the high-performance printer can output pages at up to 17 ppm in black and 12 ppm in color - speed that rivals stand-alone desktop printers. The MultiPASS F30 MFP features exclusive technologies that make it one of the most powerful in its class. Canon's Advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology helps put truly remarkable photo-quality color printing to work for you. With its ultra-fine, 5-picoliter droplets, it refines color, precision and detail for breathtaking photo printing even on plain paper. And an intelligent ink-management system uses individual ink tanks for each color, so you replace only the color you need as it runs out, not the entire cartridge.
